refrigerator
As you can see the house is heated with wood burning units. There are two electric heater on second floor, however refrain from much use do to cost.
I find my home warm and inviting.
I have oriental rugs, antiques and a nice collection of art work. The kitchen is created with wood counter tops and open shelving. I would call my taste very eclectic.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
I have two indoor cats, once they get to know you they are friendly, a little stand offish till that time. Lilly and Mac, are litter mates I rescued.
Being indoor cats they have a litter box which I scoop twice a day, morning and evening. This keeps any odor away and makes for happier cats. I lock them in the attic at night, this has been our routine since kittens. It saves on night roaming and more restful for all.
I feed dry, one small cup in each brown bowel morning and night. If there is food left I just add a little. Sometimes I give small teaspoon of wet at night when they go to bed.
They of course will have their flea medication and worming before I depart.

You will need a car.
Lots of hiking and historical places like Peyrepertuse, Quuèibus, and lovely little villages dot the area,
lots of eye candy I would say to take you on a journey through your imagination.
In the winter things a quieter, my village has a marché every other friday, where you can buy local
organic produce, beer, wine, bread, and cheese, vegan cheese. In the spring the marché moves to every friday outside, with music, pizza, sausage.
We are forty minutes to Lezignan, and hour or little less to Narbonne, in the opossite direction is
Carcassonne, Limoux and lots of wonderful small villages in-between.
Lezignan has a local marchê every Wednesday, Limoux's marché is Friday.
