About The Owner

My Husband and I purchased the house in France for a change of life but Malcolm is still running his Plant business in London and gets home as often as he is able. Being middle aged I love the quiet pace of life here in this little village very close the Medieval City of Carcassonne and I share my apartment with our two small dogs Charlie and Rosie. I love having people around as my work life in HR revolved entirely around People. We enjoy sharing our house with people from many Countries and are always happy to offer our knowledge of the area by recommending places to visit and suitable restaurants.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Fontiès-d'Aude

Having spent holidays in the South of France since 1988 I fell in love with the way of life (My husband had been visiting since the 1970's - and he introduced me). For many years it had been a dream to live here, but never thought that we would ever take the plunge. However, the idea became more and more possible and we reached a certain age and we lost people close to us and we decided that Life was for Living and we needed to get on with it - so we visited many areas all around France and did our research and decided that the Languedoc was still unspoilt and this was the place to really experience the French vie.

What makes this villa unique

If you are looking for a comfortable home with which to spend a relaxing family holiday either with your relatives or friends - there is something to occupy you all the year around. I am living here closeby and can organise and advise on local activities and even organise them for you. Le Castel is centrally located for the Med or you may prefer to visit Airbus at Toulouse. Carcassonne Plage which is nearby makes a perfect day. Alternatively relax by the pool, taste the local wine BBQ in the evening. There are many sports nearby to keep you occupied, Accro Park, golf, visiting historic sites, canoeing, white water rafting, cycling, horse riding, walking or many other water sports at the coast. The best of both worlds with a rural setting but the action is no more than 10 mins away.
