A very spacious & comfortable 2 bedroomed farmhouse, set in the stunning countryside of the Aude valley. Within reach of Carcassonne & many restaurants, historical sites, wonderful vineyards, swimming lakes & skiing in the Pyrenees. English TV.
The ground floor is accessed through an enclosed veranda which leads to a large sitting room with archway through to dining room with open fireplace and stairs to first floor. Off the dining room is a well equipped kitchen with ceramic hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. Beyond the kitchen is the garage and utility room with washing machine and loo.
Upstairs off the landing are 2 double bedrooms, one with en suite shower, the other with an adjacent shower room, and access to the large covered terrace with ping pong table.
A gas barbecue is available plus a high chair and travel cot. The house is fairly remote, although we have neighbours behind us. A car is essential. We have free WiFi, English TV, a cd player, an i-pod player and radio.
The garden is large and wild, with plenty of parking. It is surrounded by farmland/woods and there are some lovely walks. We have seen deer, sanglier (wild boar), red squirrels, badgers, foxes and coypu on our land. There is no light pollution near us so it is a wonderful spot to do some star gazing.

I enjoy travelling and making new friends, walking, reading, photography and art. I have friends and family in the Caribbean so I spend a lot of time there, but my first love is France!
