The region is tranquil and has a rich history. Nearby is a lake with healing water that’s being used for skin treatments. The city and airport of Montpellier are at one hour driving distance. The cottage is for sale for 119.000 euros (approximately $132,500)

    I bit! This house is perfectly and exactly what I have been searching for…..except it appears that it has been 3 years since it was actually up for sale. ? sooooo saaaaad…

      October 1, 2016, 11:43 pm

      Janet, I must have missed something? Where did you see that this beautiful cottage was for sale three years ago?

    What an INCREDIBLE find! This is a place one dreams of. Not all of the upscale luxuries are necessary, the beautiful rolling hills and ambience makes this well worth it…

    This makes me want to pack lightly and move today.

    Location, location………

    And a great price compared to most National Parks, at least in the USA.

    This is wonderful! I could live in this home. But I love the USA too much to leave. Moving through it seems like a dream though.

    ….I could be very happy there. It is simple and beautiful inside and out. It meets my criteria for a wonderful tiny home. The design is great and the setting sets it off like a jewel. It would be marvelous to spend the twilight years of one’s life in such a home and place.

    September 20, 2016, 8:09 pm

    Nice place! A beautiful country not too far from my birth country. Although it is too far for me to live away from my family. So I will just admire it from afar and enjoy the sights. Thank you for sharing!

    I love stone houses, and this one is wonderful. To make it even better it is in France. If I were younger and had a lot more money, this house would be mine.

    • Mike N

      I agree it is beautiful. Money and age is a factor. Even if I do not speak French it is still attractive.

  • Patricia Schneider

    Trish Dee, you and I would be competing for this home. I ABSOLUTELY love this little stone cottage. It has always been a dream to live in France and this little village with the small church (I am a retired minister) would be a perfect place.

    The cottage is perfect just as it is, except I might do a tiny bit of updating in the kitchen to make it a little more modern. I love to cook and bake so would probably put in an island and a little more storage for my KitchenAid appliances, my Vita Mix, and all my cookware. I would also take out the counter with the cooktop and put in a professional stove and oven. Then I could bake to my heart’s content.

    I wonder if it’s still for sale since the original post was from 2013. I’ll sell my tiny house and move in a heartbeat! Love the historical element and tranquility of the area.

    Tres belle petite maison de pierre comme il y en a tant dans le sud de la France. Tres bien renovee dans une nature merveilleuse. Par chance, des personnes interessees sauvent peu a peu le patrimoine francais qui s’effrite.

    • Patricia Schneider
      October 1, 2016, 5:48 pm

      Oui, il est bon de sauver l’ancien patrimoine des pays européens. Quand je vivais en Angleterre, je suis profondément ému par le sentiment d’intemporalité là. Il serait dommage de perdre que partout en Europe.

      Ceci est un beau petit village et chalet.

    What a wonderful way to immerse yourself into the French language and country culture. My husband and I both have EU citizenship. Other than the cost quoted , can you tell me what else is entailed in buying property in France?

  • Dave

    What a wonderful piece of architecture. Although I will never see it personally, I still offer my congratulations and sincere appreciation to those that brought it back to life.

    What is the process for buying a home in Italy from the US? Is there and address or contact person to meet with if I wanted to travel over there to see this place? Any information would be appreciated.

    • Vicki King
      February 3, 2017, 9:33 am

      Its in France, not Italy, they are two different countries. All you have to do is google the purchasing and immigration requirements for that country ( France) however I believe a prior post said it WAS for sale three years ago but alas, not any more. It is fantastic!

  • Trish Dee
    October 2, 2016, 9:03 am

    Patricia Schneider….Yes, we would be competing for this house. I don’t speak French, but it is on my bucket list. I’ve dreamt of living in
    a small village there as well. Stone houses are my passion and I’ve collected a few special plans for those over the years. When will I win the lottery? LOL!

    October 4, 2016, 10:51 pm

    Beautiful Cottage…! I could find myself very comfortable in a house like this….! Very warm, friendly, and inviting….!

    Pretty sure this is the house they used in an episode of Absolutely Fabulous the British television show.

      It is pretty fab 🙂 Not sure about cost of living in France, though/

  • Chuck
    February 3, 2017, 11:34 am

    What is the thing in the living area in the corner next to one of the heating units??
    I love this house and seems like such a deal. But what about property taxes and other basic costs to live there?

  • Duke Zimmer
    May 12, 2017, 6:42 pm

    Be careful what you wish for. While the cottage is cute, French taxes are not and can eat up as much as 45% of a residents’ income. For example if you earn between 26, 819 Euros and 71, 898 Euros you’ll pay 30% at the national level and anything over 71,899 Euros will be taxed at 41%. Ad to this local and property taxes and pretty soon you’ll wish you were back in the US.

    • Kay

      Only slightly higher than the country I live in, but I also get a quality , free education for my children, and universal health care. So I am happy.

  • Richard Zapata

    I’m very interested is it still for sale and is the asking price negotiable some what.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      May 15, 2017, 7:25 pm

      I’m afraid it looks like it has sold.

    I cannot even begin to count the ways I love this building. The French countryside is absolutely beautiful. The home itself is is just dripping European Old World charm. I can’t wait to win the lotto to get my hands on this one : )

    Alex…we are not scared of dates, I noticed you took the dates off the links. I saw this before and I am absolutely thrilled to see this gem of a house again. 😀 These are so nice in the middle of what has become commercialized cookie cutter THOW’s.

    I would like to ask how the electrical was done – wired into the walls because that is what it looks like and not a surface install. Perhaps the person who this lovely house belongs to can answer?

    • Alex
      July 1, 2019, 1:06 pm

      Thanks for letting me know, Denise! And glad you enjoyed it again. It’s one of my favorites. That’s a good question for an electrician… You’ve got me wondering myself. 😀

      I did buy a small (50 square metres) house in rural France that is now our holiday home. I spend time there with my dog, and sometimes with hubby and our adult children!
      There are lots of small stone houses available all over France. This area is much more expensive than the area we bought in, where houses are available for €40,000 or so. Our house has plastered walls, but we also own barns with stone walls that could be converted. However, we are aware that this would be expensive and we haven’t got the money at the moment.
      We love our little house and have had many happy holidays there.
