General description

  • Main home
Nestling in the beautiful foothills of the Ariege, our home, designed and built by my architect husband, combines comfort and modern amenities, with a rustic charm, so that it seems a timeless part of our tiny hamlet. But Foix, with its fascinating history and multiple amenities, is only 15 minutes drive away.

Needs and Animals

  • Many plants
  • 2 dogs
  • A cat
  • Farm animals
The two dogs are very friendly, and just need fuss, excercise and feeding. The cat is only 5 months old, but clean. He finds the world fascinating to explore and just needs a little play and cuddle. as wekk as feeding.The chickens are let out as soon as they have laid their eggs - but not the chicks yet.
The garden is mainly laid to grass but there are 2 greenhouses that need watering - eat the produce -and I have a terrace with pot plants that need regularlar watering if it doesn't rain.
