This is a unique opportunity to buy one of the few Knights Templar castles still in private hands. It's located in the Languedoc region of France near the citadel of Carcassonne, where Knights used to gather before heading off on their Crusades to the Holy Land.

A lot has happened to the property since it passed into the Knights Templar fraternity in 1123 AD. There have been wars, peasant uprisings, revolution, Wehrmacht occupation and much more. But it has come through these turmoils unscarred, even embellished! Successive owners have added on bits, destroyed secret passages, unblocked others, added heating, double-glazing and even air-conditioning! But no one has ever quite rid the place of those mediaeval ghosts, those poor Knights, their Order disbanded, hunted down one by one in the late twelth and thirteenth centuries.

Today it is a fine chateau which dominates a tiny Corbières wine village and is exploited as a quality guest house. The whole property is sometimes let out to groups for family gatherings, history seminars or wine-tasting weekends.

There are nine bedrooms, 3 vast reception rooms, kitchen, spa room, library, gym and lots of nooks and crannies. Outside there's a heated pool in the garden and terraces and patios on every side of the château. A two-bedroomed gite - set away from the main building - is used either for a manager or guests. Another large garage/barn building has yet to be brought into use but has been earmarked for wedding receptions and wine-tasting.

The location is excellent: Carcassonne and its 12th century citadel lies 10 minutes to the west. Narbonne and the Mediteranean coast are 30 minutes to the east.

There is a lot one could do with this property ... and it's ready to go!
