Description of Property:
Our south facing Gîte is on one level accessed from three steps to an entrance porch or two steps up to the spacious private terrace overlooking the pool.
The open plan lounge and dining area is 22.5 m2 and has two sets of French doors opening on to the terrace.
There is one double bedroom with king size bed and several chests of drawers.
The other bedroom has two single beds, a fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers.
The bathroom is newly refitted with shower, toilet and washbasin, there is an additional toilet.
The kitchen has also been recently fitted with all mod cons as well as French doors opening onto the terrace.
There is a double size storage cupboard in the entrance hall with hanging space.
Outside Amenities: The pool is 11m by 5m and set in landscaped gardens, if it gets too hot, there is always the shade of our Indian summer house. The pool is heated in summer and is shared with the owner.
For the nature lovers there are many walks and cycling routes through the rolling countryside. There are breathtaking views of the Pyrénées from the hill above Cammas de Bas. Highlights are wild asparagus picking during March and April, orchids and the arrival of nightingales in early summer. The autumn colours of the vines after harvesting in September are a sight to see. Our hens provide fresh eggs for breakfast throughout the year.
Surrounding Area: For the historian there are numerous castles, abbeys and medieval villages in the vacinity. Some favourites are: Montsegur, Lastours, Puilarens, Queribus and not forgetting Carcassonne with its magnificent fortified Cite!
Visiting vineyards and wine tasting can be a highlight with Fitou, Corbieres and Minnervois wines being well known. I would also recommend the lesser known areas of Cabardes and Malepere where there are some hidden gems of wines waiting to be discovered. No trip would be complete without visiting Limoux and tasting Blanquette, a sparkling wine created some 150 years before Champagne was invented.
Driving through the hills and vineyards is as rewarding as climbing to the top of the hill to get to a particular castle. Out of the peak season can be even more spectacular as the autumn colours of the vineyards are followed by a dusting of snow on the Pyrénées. In winter the ski slopes are open to offer winter fun for the more adventurous.
The Mediterranean coast is just over an hour away with beaches at Narbonne Plage, Port Leucat with the oyster beds and the coastline down towards Spain. There are lakeside beaches nearer (Carcassonne Plage and the Lac du Montbel).
