Limoux Holiday Home
About the home
The living area is open plan and ideal for socialising. During the summer months the outside area is ideal for lazing around the pool and eating breakfast, lunch and dinner with the compulsory glass of wine. Who needs to go out when you have the sun, food, fine wine and good company.
During the summer the house is cool and the patio pool area is south facing and sheltered. It gets pretty hot but you have the pool to cool off. The pool has a heater but during the summer months June to august you wont need it.
Our house is located in a pretty and friendly village. The village has a smart little pizzeria/bar with terrace, a shop and post office. There is a communal tennis court and basket ball court.
The village shop keeper is wonderfully very friendly and sociable. With a name like Fab what more would you expect?
Just a short drive (5 mins) is the small town of Limoux with a small amount of exclusive shops. The square with coffee bars and restaurants. During the summer months there is always something going on. Friday morning is market day and Tuesday evenings during the summer is the night market.
