About Mr & Mrs Ross
When we're not in France relaxing at our lovely villa, we live and work in north Buckinghamshire with, from time to time, an assorted collection of children and stepchildren and an abbyssinian cat - Morag - whose shape bears a passing resemblance to a butternut squash.
Mr & Mrs Ross purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Mr & Mrs Ross chose Hounoux
Having visited Carcassonne for the first time some ten years ago and fallen hopelessly in love with it, when the opportunity arrived to buy a house in France it just had to be in this wonderful area of the Aude. While Carcassonne and its magical medieval castle is an easy half hours drive away, Villa Toto itself is in a tiny hameau in an area of unspoilt peace and tranquility with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The house needed total renovation, and we have had a happy time turning it into the perfect holiday home. It is beautiful throughout the seasons - surrounded by soft greens of the vines in the spring, fabulous fields of yellow sunflowers in the summer, rich browns and oranges of the vineyards in the autumn and spectacular snow-covered mountains in winter.
What makes this Villa unique
As the property has only just finished being renovated, everything is brand new and has been designed for the sole purpose of creating an idyllic place to relax. A few steps from the kitchen/dining room take you to the table under the pergola where honeysuckle and trumpet vines provide you with shade. There you can sit with a glass of the local wine and gaze out over the pool and beyond to the rolling hills of the beautiful countryside and gently think about what you might want to do - or not do - tomorrow. Villa Toto is so easy to get to as it's only 30 minutes from Carcassonne airport and the car hire deals are excellent, even in the summer. The Mediterranean sea is about an hour away, but there are fabulous sandy beaches at inland lakes just a few miles away.
