20mins from Mediterranean beaches, Ouveillan, Aude.
Anyone seeking property close to the Mediterranean, but not wishing to pay the inflated prices of the coastal towns, should consider the picturesque village of Ouveillan. The house is in a quiet, residential part of this busy village, in an elevated position overlooking the garden and pool. This attractive, two-storey, 1960’s villa, was completely refurbished in the last 5 years and requires no further work. However, there is a full height basement, covering the entire footprint of the house, which is currently divided into two rooms. A new owner might wish to extend the living accommodation into this extra space. The villa has oil central heating, partial air conditioning, full double glazing, mains drains, and off street parking for 2 cars. Ouveillan is a typical Mediterranean, hilltop town, with a long history and a lot of charm. Once only an agricultural area, with vineyards and olive groves, it has recently become more of a popular (yet unspoiled) holiday destination. There are airports at Montpelier, Perpignan and Carcassonne, all within easy reach and served by budget airlines. There is a TGV station at Beziers. The village has a good range of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. The photographs show the garden and pool, soaked in the southern sunshine of the Aude. The charming garden is entirely private, planted with mature Mediterranean trees and shrubs. The pool which measures 8m x 5m (26ft x 16ft) has a security cover as required under French law, and is surrounded by a graveled area and lawns. If the pool doesn’t keep the family happy then the great beach at Narbonne (20 minutes by car), certainly will!
