Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Classic end of terrace house near centre of town yet in a quiet corner. 3 bedrooms. Sleeps 6. Steep original staircase. Not suitable for people with mobility issues. Cosy living area with extendable dining table. Fully equipped kitchen for self catering. Fast Wifi and smart TV with Orange TV stations (mostly French) and Amazon Firestick with Live TV, Netflix, Youtube, Disney and many more. Light filled, cosy and on 4 levels including private south facing courtyard. Spectacular view south across agricultural fields all the way to the snow capped Pyrenees. View north across rooftops to historic St. Vincente Collegiate Church. Montreal is a hilltop market town in Aude. 15 minutes by car to of bustling Carcassonne and the famous C12th Cite. 45 minutes to Toulouse. One hour to Foix in the Pyrenees foothills. Some fabulous markets are all within 30 minutes drive in Mirepoix, Castelnaudary, Carcassonne, Bram, Revel. Just over an hour to cosmopolitan and chic Narbonne with fantastic shopping in its historical centre, close to the Mediterranean. The Canal du Midi flows through nearby Carcassonne and Castelnaudary with boat hires for any duration. The region is famous for vinyards (specialty is Merlot) and sunflowers. It has a rich history as a centre of the Cathar rebellion in the C13th. The local St. Vincente Collegiate Church was the scene of a debate between the Catholics and Cathars 800 years ago. There are many Cathar ruins that dot the area, all within short half day drives.

Montreal itself has a permanent population of around 2000 and this figure has been consistent for the past 3 centuries. It's pedestrian heart is ancient but it also has all modern conveniences including petrol station, convenience stores, cafes, bars, restaurants, motor repairers, pharmacies, patisseries etc. There is a supermarket 5 minutes away in Bram. Montreal also has a school, a police station a fire brigade tennis court and communal swimming pool, walking distance from the house. It can get quite busy at peak times on work days but could best be described as 'sleepy'.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Montreal is a village centrally located in a vibrant region of South France near the Pyrenees. Its is a small village with most conveniences nearby the house (walking distance) but close to major regional centres like Carcassonne and Narbonne. From near the centre of town (close to the church) there are stunning 360 deg views of the region. Most of the town is pedestrian, which enhances its charm, however there is free parking in the small square in front of the house, which is an added bonus to those arriving by car. Great walks abound around and within the town. Beyond the lake on the hill behind, there are wonderful photogenic views of the town of Montreal, which is topped by the church and its bell tower.
