Languedoc Roussillon (or Occitanie as this region is now known) has an incredibly diverse landscape, a peaceful lifestyle and a strong property market, very much like neighbouring Provence. Luxury homes in picturesque villages have close proximity to both the sea and the mountains, and whimsical towns play host to exciting festivities year-round. Whether you’re looking for a permanent home or an occasional holiday escape, consider these five stunning properties in the Languedoc region.
12-Bedroom Villa in the Provence countryside
This 12-bedroom villa, set in the Provence countryside and with views of the Alpilles mountains, sits on 30 hectares of land, 28 of which are dedicated to olive trees. The land produces extra virgin olive oil that’s cold-pressed in the on-premises mill. The traditional farmhouse, which dates back to the 1760s, has banquet halls and an open fireplace. In addition to the house, there’s also a pro-level tennis court, private garden and swimming pool.
11th Century Chateau in Perpignan
This completely renovated 11th century chateau or fort, perched on a hilltop amongst 25 acres, has protected 360-degree panorama views. Imaginative and grand, the interior has unique elements like its two-story dining room with a cathedral ceiling and sunny breakfast terrace; Romanesque arched windows; and 14th century details. There are eight bedrooms and eight and a half baths in total, plus four rooms and four exterior areas for entertaining; three donjons; and two studies. Outside, there’s a hidden, sunken Italian garden; a cascading fountain; a green theatre; and a Jade-colored, heated pool surrounded by lemon trees. On the property’s border is a 15th century chapel, maintained by the village but available to the castle owner, with acoustics fit for a concert and enough room for up to 150 guests.
6-Bedroom Mansion in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon’s
With medieval features and walking access to Villeneuve-lès-Avignon’s cafes, restaurants and shops, this six-bedroom mansion also has a self-contained apartment above the garage, ideal for visitors or staff. The home’s features include a large kitchen with beams in the ceiling and a terracotta floor, and a vast lounge with a fireplace and French windows that open into the garden. The large master suite has two dressing rooms, two baths and a salon. Outside, there’s a pool, pergola and dining area, plus space that can be converted into a summer kitchen or creative studio.
Empire-style Mansion in Nimes
Nicely situated in the Nimes city centre and facing the historical Palais des Papes, this Empire-style mansion is in a highly sought-after area. The completely renovated interiors feature superior materials across the five stunning, modern bedrooms; the large living room; and the open-plan, high-tech kitchen. This private villa’s additional amenities include country and garden views, a swimming pool and a hammam.
Waterfront Mansion near Perpignan
This waterfront mansion in the Perpignan area dates back to the late 1800s, when architect Viggo Dorph-Petersen designed it for one of the Bell Époque’s prominent families. It took three years of diligent work by master craftsmen for the restoration, which includes high-tech equipment, antique furniture sourced from around the world, and made-to-measure furnishings. There are five full suites, including a master suite with a sea-facing terrace. This luxurious home, which was built right on the sand, has living rooms, an office, designer kitchen, a refined wine cellar, gym and spa, landscaped gardens, private swimming pool, and direct sea access.
