This charming, 3-bedroom, ground floor apartment is situated in a quiet spot in the city centre, a few paces from the hustle and bustle of this fabulous city and only 20 minutes from Toulouse International Airport. It has a studio which could provide rental income. The apartment comes with a garden and swimming pool and also a garage.
Right in the heart of the city centre, in a prestigious area, and quietly situated, this lovely apartment was created from a 19th Century house of character. The apartment has six main rooms and has a very spacious feel to it.
It consists of an entrance hall which gives access to the reception room which measures an enormous 65 m² and opens on to the terrace, the garden and swimming pool. The room has large windows, with the dining area on one side and well fitted, open-plan kitchen on the other. Linking with this area is the sitting room, a comfortable space with a working fireplace. Beyond are two large bedrooms measuring 26 m² and 18 m², each with lovely en suite bathrooms and built-in cupboards.
Our French colleague says that the property ‘exudes a light and serene atmosphere, complemented by a carefully selected décor with original features preserved’ and we tend to go along with that. The property also has a separate office on the same level, ideal for anyone wishing to have a home office, and a utility area. In an annex, the apartment has a studio that could be a good source of rental income. Importantly for the city centre, there is also a garage. The apartment has plenty of authentic character and a unique charm which will, more than likely, establish this as a real favourite for the viewing shortlist.
Toulouse is one of France’s most vibrant cities. It is often referred to as ‘La Ville Rose’ thanks to the rose-coloured buildings which give the city its famous warm glow. The city centre is a compact warren of winding cobbled streets and is a joy to explore on foot, especially since few cars brave the narrow streets. The Place du Capitole is the heart of the city and there can be few better places to watch the world go by.
Toulouse is known for its gastronomy and there are no less than 5 Michelin starred restaurants in the city, as well as countless less formal eateries of course. The Victor Hugo covered market is recognised as one of the best produce markets in the whole of France. The city is home to more than 50 art galleries and a dozen major museums, ranging from the cutting-edge to the traditional. The lively music scene ensures that every genre is catered for and there are many live events throughout the year.
The Canal du Midi runs through the city and this famous waterway adds a tranquility to the place. A gentle journey (by bike, foot or boat) along the tree-lined banks and a picnic provide the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle.
One of the most attractive aspects of Toulouse is its position. Both Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts are accessible, as are the Pyrenees, Spain and the Basque Country. Toulouse International Airport is 9kms from the city centre and Paris is only 4 hours away by TGV.
