About this conversion.

For lovers of raw architecture, opportunity for amazing conversion

Former wine cellar dating from 1960 with 350m2 of exploitable potential. A vast industrial volume that will inspire wine and concrete lovers alike, those who dream to live or work in an open and airy loft/workshop atmosphere in the quiet French countryside. Roof in very good condition, ideal for starting an atypical project or immediate use as a workshop.

How to get there​

Airports: Carcassonne 45 min (Ryanair), Beziers 35 min, Perpignan 1h, Toulouse 1h30, Montpellier 1h30

Train: Narbonne 25 min. Due to be completed by 2040, is a new TGV station that will be built just 15 mins away in Montredon-les-Corbières. This will link the area to Paris (3 hours) and to Barcelona (1 hour) radically transforming the area and its potential as a shrewd investment.



Ground floor: There is 165m2 of open concrete floor area, with access onto a large to courtyard space. The building also has 14 enormous concrete wine vats (400 hectolitres each or 5x4x3m varies) If these were to be opened/cut you have the potential for much more space: storage or habitable spaces (see the house listing on this site which consisted of these same vats in another building)


Access is via a large metal roller door (4x4m) or a metal secure door to the laneway behind the building


Second floor: Two 111m2 open concrete floors, linked by 2 bridged concrete walkways. At the moment there is a temporary workspace with shower, tables, light kitchen and bed. The windows are single-glazed industrial metal windows frames. Upper spaces have steel balustrades.

Outdoor area

A recent boundary survey has been carried out. There is a North facing courtyard of 150 m2 enclosed by the building wall of the main cave cooperative (retired) to the South and a fence to the North. There is a double steel secure gate to the street. 


The roof to this building was retiled in 2010 and is in good condition allowing a great hassle free starting point for your project.


Rural/agricultural building in buildable 'U' zone.

Please note the property requires connection to services which are located on the East boundary – A relatively straight forward exercise, with an easy approval of the friendly local marie.


Architectural opportunities

A lap pool of 14m in length in existing polished concrete ground floor vats, wine cellar, indoor garden, south facing trapezium roof terrace, rainwater storage, solar panels allowed. 


In the heart of the Minervois vineyards, you will enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside on the outskirts of a village of 600 inhabitants with artists' residences and a thriving local cultural life (concerts, garage sales, exhibitions, vernissages, etc.). Sainte-Valière is situated on a small plateau in a unique elevated position from the surrounding countryside.



On the edge of the mountain bike trails and the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. 10 minutes from swimming in the River Cesse, 15 minutes from the most beautiful street markets in the area and hiking in the Montagne Noire, 25 minutes from the Halles de Narbonne and the Grands Buffets, 35 minutes from the lively beaches of the Côte du Midi. Countless wineries in the surrounding area for lovers of Languedoc wines.



150m away: grocery store/post office, primary school, tennis courts, coworking space. 

15 minutes: supermarkets

Property Tax

Currently an agricultural property:  hence there is no tax required as is.
Property tax once converted: this will depend on your project (quantum of habitable, offices, workshop etc). As an estimate you could allow approximately 2600€+ / year for 200m2 habitable space.


Selling price: € 109,000
