House 2: All set on one floor, there is a large kitchen with dining area, large living room with log burner, two bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, two additional bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
Outside: The house faces due south so benefits from the 300 days of sunshine the Aude department is lucky enough to get. In addition to the large pool (16m x 8m) and adjoining pergola with summer kitchen, there are three separate terraces, a ‘secret garden', a vegetable garden, young orchard, fire pit, chicken house and a large studio (50m2).
