Facade of Belvedere House,  A modern property for sale in France
The facade of Belvedere House


Modern property for sale  in France


I opened Belvedere House as a Chambres d’hộte in late 2009 after 5 years of total renovation of the 18th Century building. It achieved Tripadvisor’s ‘Certificate of Excellence’ for 6 years. As a result it was the #1 listed Chambres d’hộte in the area. The business was closed in 2017, because I was renovating another house completed in 2020. As a result, the Belvedere House is a modern property for sale in France, to those who wish to explore and live in this beautiful  area of Herault. A Studio apartment, independently of the main house, may be used as a granny flat or for rental income.


Quarante is situated on a hill surrounded by the vineyards of Languedoc-Roussillon.  This is the largest wine-producing region in the world at 740,300 acres. Quarante has  wonderful views south to the Pyrenees and north to the ‘Montagne Noire’. Quarante is 20 mins by car to Beziers, Narbonne and St Chinian. The Canal du Midi is a short walk or bicycle ride away. The Romans extensively developed the region and their legacy remains today. The ‘Via Domitia’ being just one example.

The Village

Quarante has two butchers, a baker, a chemist, a Doctor, a Dentist, a self-service mini market, a newsagent, a clothes shop, a gift shop, a TV repair shop and two schools and a population of 1500. Therefore it is a thriving, picturesque, and typical French village. There is an excellent restaurant a short walk from the village, and Bar 40(Quarante) does an excellent value 3 course midday meal for €14 . A regular bus service to Beziers stops at other local villages en-route. There are numerous beaches within a half hour drive.
