Large bedroom (roughly 20 sq.meters) with walk in closet (4 additional sq meters).
Study off bedroom (9 sq m), can be used as bedroom for baby or young child; a separate entrance can easily be created to have two fully independent bedrooms. Alternately, you can very easily convert the study into a second bathroom to create an en suite space.

Ideal situation on very quiet street 1mn walk away from train station (but absolutely no noise), in quiet neighbourhood with all sorts of shops. The city centre is less than 10 mn away on foot: theatres, galleries, cinemas, world famous cathedral and quaint old city streets. Beautiful public gardens nearby.

The region is world renowned for wonderful scenery, hiking and biking, lakes, good food and hospitality.

It is possible to rent one or two car spaces (45€/month per car) in locked parking site 10 meters from the house, or it is very easy to park right on the street.

Albi is only a 50 minutes drive away from Castres Mazamet airport, one hour from Toulouse Blagnac airport, just over an hour from Rodez airport (cheap flights available to and from the UK and Ireland).

Asking price: 278 000€
