St Chinian Property

Property in St Chinian - A Guide to St Chinian

St Chinian is perhaps best known for its wines. Popular the world over, St Chinian grapes have been grown since the 9 th century. Producing a strong red wine, St Chinain grapes are grown on the sides of hills that face the sea. These are called coteaux.

Property in St Chinian can be good value for money compared to other parts of the Languedoc. I’ve seen two bedroom village houses that are in OK condition for under 100,000€, although 120,000€ will get you something much nicer. I’ve also seen a four bed townhouse for 150,000€. One of the problems with St Chinian property, like most property in the Languedoc is the lack of outside space. Most of the old period properties don’t have any form of garden or terrace. Even if you find a large, double fronted house over four floors with 6 bedrooms, a lot of the time it won’t have a garden. Don’t lose faith though, as you can find good St Chinian property with gardens and terraces, you just have to look a little harder.

St Chinian is located about 30km north of Narbonne and about 30km North West of Beziers. The nearest beach is Valras Plage which is about 40km away. If you’re thinking of buying a St Chinian property then the chances are that you’re either looking to do so as a holiday home or as a permanent move. Either way, one important factor is how you’re going to get there. The nearest airport to St Chinian is Carcassonne, which is about 80km away. The roads are quite good so this journey should take you about an hour or so.

St Chinian is a small town but with most of the facilities of a large one, including banks, four restaurants, three bars, supermarkets, a newspaper shop (selling some in English), hairdressers, doctors, pharmacies and numerous butchers and boulangeries. It also has a market twice a week.
