Domaine de Rey is a large six bedroom old stone farmhouse in six acres of grounds with a swimming pool, set in a beautiful hilly, Mediterranean landscape. There are stunning views of rolling vineyards, the edge of the rugged Corbieres mountains and the spectacular peaks of the Pyrenees rising to the south. It is a completely private and tranquil spot, yet the pretty village of Saint Hilaire with all local amenities is only a five minutes drive away. Saint Hilaire and its Abbey have a special place in local history, as it is where the Benedictine monks invented Blanquette, the local sparkling wine and forerunner to Champagne.
The house is 15 minutes drive from both Limoux and the famous walled medieval city of Carcassonne, with its museums, markets, cafes, shops and restaurants. This is also fantastic walking and cycling country with marked trails in every direction. There are also plenty of sightseeing opportunities with the numerous Cathar castles, many of which are perched high in the rocky foothills of the Pyrenees. The Mediterranean beaches are one hour away, a great day trip, as are the Pyrenean skiing slopes for winter months.
