  • Description


    Hi, we are Marc and Bev! We live on the outskirts of a small and quiet village with fantastic views to the Pyrenees, surround by vineyards and just 5km from Limoux. We are very easy going, extremely flexible and like to enjoy our life here. We have a small and scruffy (but very cute) dog and 4 cats, we like to go for the odd picnic here and there and explore a bit, and of course, we enjoy our food and a glass of wine!

  • Help


    We have a few projects on the go (small and large). We have a large house with a large plot of land that needs attention and also a small town house which needs almost a full renovation (new bathroom, new electrics, new kitchen and a few small interior walls removing so we very much need people to help us to finish them off. If you have any experience in construction and can bring your talent to the table as it were, then you should definitely contact us, if you are just happy to learn or help out and are adaptable then so should you.

    We are open to suggestions on the work needed, we work well together and also with others, we appreciate extra help and input and take nothing for granted.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The bustling town of Limoux with restaurants, shops, supermarkets, trains etc only 5km away by local bus or lift from the village or us. Limoux boasts the longest carnival in Europe (from Jan to March) and is only half an hour from Carcassonne airport and the impressive medieval City. The area is great for cycling, motorbiking, canoeing and rambling but best of all, is seriously known for its good wine! There is a train and bus service throughout the Aude which costs 1€ each way!
    There is plenty to see and plenty to do or if you prefer the quiet life then there is always the hammock or the movie room (den) available.
