Description of Property:   The property is situated in a quiet, private corner of the village. The downstairs is open plan and has a distinctive 'loft' feel. The separate areas - kitchen, dining and lounge flow harmoniously into each other. The effect is cosy but spacious. French windows lead out onto a terrace bordered by mature plants, and the terrace leads out to the very pretty sunny garden with mature plants and trees, plus a chalet for wood and garden furniture storage, a fridge, a coffee machine, a kettle and relevant crockery to save having to go into the house all the time. The bathroom is downstairs with a large shower, hand basin and toilet. Upstairs guests will find 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom in spacious and boasts a beautiful Spanish head board. It has a private dressing room with loo and hand basin. The second bedroom is small but pretty and cosy. The upstairs landing makes an ideal 'work station' as does the space under the stairs downstairs. The property is fully equipped and tastefully decorated throughout.

Surrounding Area:  La Force is an historic 'circular' village and although definitely 'on the beaten track' it nevertheless offers all the advantages of a countryside location. The neighbouring villages of Montréal de l'Aude and Fanjeaux (4 and 5 kms away respectively) offer all amenities: shops, bars, restaurants, bakers, garage, chemist. Vineyards abound in the area, and wine tasting is 'de rigeur'! The village has it's own Pizza van every Friday evening, and butcher in the afternoon. La Force is almost equi-distant from several lovely towns: Carcassonne (with la Cité medieval), Limoux on the river Aude (with it's Italianesque square and 3 month Carnevale), Mirepoix (with its colorful timbered houses and couverts) and Castelnaudary famous for Cassoulet! All these places lie about 20 mins from La Force. The nearest coastal resort of Narbonne Plage in one hour away, as is the nearest ski resort of the Pyrenees. the area is great for walking or cycling (the Canal du Midi can be reached at Bram, 10 kms away). Montréal has a public outdoor swimming pool, and Mirepoix an indoor one. Go canoeing on the river Aude, and local horse riding can also be arranged. There is a tele-ski-nautic on a lake in Bram with bar and outside eating. For those interested in history, Cathar castles abound...discover the mysteries of Rennes le Chateau! Many towns have lively markets, festivals, exhibitions and antique/brocante fairs. Plenty of activities to suit all tastes!
