London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 17, 2013 -- For anyone who has dreamed of living on a working French wine estate, surrounded by authentic 19th-century architecture wrapped in the finest of modern touches, these luxury chateau residences make an unmatched living experience.
Rising from an 1890-era estate originally designed by architect Louis-Michel Garros will be 36 singular homes in original period character buildings, including the Château, the Winery, the Blacksmith's House and the Distillery. Buyers may select from spacious 2-bedroom apartments up to 4-bedroom houses.
The interior design of the French chateau residences will take its cues from the estate's heritage, a story of grace, beauty and refinement in a country setting. A wealth of period features will marry the traditional and the contemporary.
The properties are sold furnished to the last detail - from linen to artworks, high spec entertainment systems to chic French tableware. Founding owners will also be able to customise their homes in consultation with both the architect and interior designer. Living areas are generously proportioned and most of the properties feature private terrace and garden and some come with a private pool.
Owners will also share in the excellent Languedoc wines produced from the refurbished winery, with an estimated 20 cases a year assigned to each property. Watch the vineyards come to life every spring, observe their progress and thrill in the harvest and production.
Estate amenities include a salon/lounge, brasserie, community pool, boules area, clay tennis court and terrace that overlooks the vineyards. Concierge services include everything from chauffeurs to chefs.
The incredible 10-acre estate is located in the South of France, with eight international airports within two hours, close to Béziers, Pézenas and Montpellier, as well as the Mediterranean's incomparable beaches. Paris and Lyon are easily reached by autoroute and TGV, with Barcelona soon to be added to the high-speed rail route.
Nearby is fishing of all descriptions, as well as amazing farmers' markets, vineyards to explore and fine dining opportunities.
Languedoc is a place of the quintessential Mediterranean climate, basking in sunshine 300 days a year, with short, mild winters and seemingly endless summers.
Now is the time to invest in this Languedoc chateau and vineyard property, with prices one-quarter less than comparable properties on the Côte d'Azur. A key point of difference compared to other newly built developments in France, is that this vineyard chateau estate is designed and built for buyers, offering buyers absolute freedom to use their vacation homes whenever and as often as they wish without any restrictions. The fine property is fully-managed including letting and concierge services, ensuring that owners' investment is well looked after and professionally marketed to maximize rental revenue and property values.
