There's a new school planned for the near future.
It has a hospital, doctors, dentist and a cinema that shows films in English. The old Cité of Carcassonne is 25 mins west and Narbonne beach is 30 mins east (bus to Narbonne is €1). The Canal du Midi is 5 miles north. Barcelona is 3 hours away. The town is surrounded by vignyards and the area is stunning. There's an airfield here with a parachute club and even a BigMac!!!
It was my holiday home and I kept a car here and used to fly out and use the train to get here. Ryanair flights from Liverpool can cost as little as 25 quid!
Beziers, Toulouse and Montpellier airports are not far away.
I now live here full time and would like to get a place with a small garden but intend to stay close to Lezignan.
It's work in progress - I bought it to renovate and will continue to improve it in my spare time, however, it's perfectly habitable. It is an ideal lock it up and leave it holiday home.
This is the sunniest area in France!
The price is a realistic €60000 plus the buyer will have to pay the notaires fee. The same notaire is used by both parties but the buyer pays the fee - this is standard practice in France. There's no other property for sale in the town that comes near it for size and value.
I'm happy to leave my Renault Kangoo in the garage for the purchaser!
