The Hothouse is a real 'chambre d'hôte' in that we only have one 'guest' room.
It is a comfortable  double-bedded (queen size) room with garden view and direct access though the  French windows.
A childs futon can be added to the room if required.

We also have slightly more... rustic accommodation (no bathroom or loo - access main house for the 'facilities') in my writer/artist studio. Sleeps one, two or three (double futon and day bed)

Summer relaxation and winter sports.

Limoux has a mostly mediterranean climate, dry hot summers, and fairly mild winters with the odd very cold snap. Lots of sunshine!

mid-summer vines and pyrenean foothills, near Limoux

And, when it does get cold, (snow in Limoux is fairly exceptional) the town is well situated as a base for skiing, the nearest ski station being just an hour away. The view here is taken from one of our favourite walks up on the hills above the house.
