Aude house description
This home from home is in its own wooded grounds. Set in glorious countryside near a charming small village, there is little to hear apart from bird song, cow bells and the chiming of the church clock. On the doorstep are a variety of beautiful circular walks with panoramic views across to the Pyrenees. The garden has lawns, an area of mixed wood, table tennis, and a swimming pool. A grassy ride winds through the trees past a chalet style summer house. It is great for children or anyone wanting to commune with nature. The Villa has a cool airy living area with antiques, leather sofas and chairs, and a wood burning fireplace. For entertainment there is ADSL broadband internet access by wifi or cable for your laptop, UK freeview satellite colour TV, a DVD player, a radio/cassette/CD player, a selection of books and some games.
