Description

At La Fraissinède you can really believe you are French Seigneur, surveying the rolling landscape of your estate. This luxury villa is a brilliant conversion of an old wine store which combines original features with stunning contemporary architecture. In short, nothing else is quite like La Fraissinède. Within its attractive exterior, the living space incorporates vast empty wine tanks alongside 18th century fireplaces and lavish contemporary design.

Close to the fairytale city of Carcassonne, the villa sits amid 120 acres of land, dotted with olive trees and lavender. The pretty village of Lagrasse is only 11km away. With an outdoor pool and huge open-plan entertaining spaces, La Fraissinède is the perfect setting for a celebratory gathering, or a relaxing retreat. Gazing out across the French countryside from the sheltered terrace, you feel a million miles away from the stresses and strains of ordinary life.

The house has strong connections to the wine trade, making it is the perfect place to savour a few of the celebrated local vintages. With room for up to 16 guests, you can throw your own private house party. There is plenty of space for everyone here as well as a bar and cosy small rooms to relax in. La Fraissinède is both a sunny summer paradise and a winter retreat. Underfloor heating and big roaring fires keep it warm in the colder months, and the Pyrenees ski slopes are two hours away.

At such a deluxe residence you might expect to be looked after by a team of staff, and you won’t be disappointed. A charming live-in couple are there to welcome you, provide daily housekeeping and concierge services, and to make you feel at home. You can bring staff with you (there is additional staff accommodation) and if you require additional services such as a private chef, butler, nanny or chauffeur, it’s no problem.

The accommodation is spread across the main house and a garden wing which has its own living room and games room and separate flat. Although there are lots of wonderful things to do in the area, you really don’t need to leave the grounds of your private luxury villa. La Fraissinède has its own cinema area and an all-weather tennis court as well as a pool and outdoor dining and barbecue area. It is five star French country living.

If you are bringing your own staff, it’s good to know that a separate staff flat is available for them to stay in.

There are beaches within 45 minutes drive (La Franqui and Leucate) and the historic city of Carcassonne makes a great family outing.
