Property Benefits Opinion by Vendor:


Weather in Villardonnel - During the summer (June, July, August until late-September), expect daily temperatures to be between 25c and 35c in the shade. With very little or no wind, there are many perfect days and evenings for eating al fresco. At dusk, the property is automatically lit by many outside lanterns.

Villardonnel Climate - The geographical location of the property benefits from a Mediterranean climate rather than a Mountain climate and is perfect because you truly do have a Spring, Summer and Autumn. December is a 'wild-card' and the weather can be as warm as a spring day or it beckons the ambiance of your open-hearth fireplace. But regardless of the season, what Villardonnel does have is a lot of sunshine and clear skies.

Panoramic View - Folk arriving here for the first time usually exclaim; " Wow! - what a view! "

Neighbours - It takes about 20-25 minutes to walk to the nearest neighbours. So if you like your music really loud, no problem !

The Ideal Property Buyer for Domaine la Royale? - This Villardonnel property for sale near Carcassonne may be an ideal business opportunity for a keen semi-retired couple who seek to earn extra income to supplement their pension by offering tourists a holiday gîte, camping, and Table d'Hôte.
