    Description

    Hi, we are Marc and Bev! We recently moved to France and live on the outskirts of a small quiet village 5km from Limoux with fantastic views to the Pyrenees and surrounding countryside. We like company and enjoy our time out, we like to explore the area as it is still new to us (usually with a picnic) and of course we enjoy our food and a glass of red!
    We will look forward to hearing from you.

    We are easy going and very flexible with our plans which are to update the property a little (mainly DIY) and to make room on the land for maybe a cabin or two and if possible create a 'garden' of some kind.

    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 ...

    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!

    If you like to explore the area then we would be more than happy to have you join us on our outings, or if you prefer there is a bus service from the village and also a train and bus service throughout the Aude (1€ each way) otherwise we could provide a car if necessary.

    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.
