Maison écologique Proche Montagne Et Mer

Our Home

Bright and sunny ecological house, 180 m2, set in grounds of 1,500 m2, in a little village ten kilometres from a small town called Quillan, and close to mountains and sea.

Built with environmentally friendly materials along bioclimatic principles, our house is very pleasant both in the summer and in the winter.

More about this property

The large living room of 65 m2 is very bright thanks to three large, south-facing windows, creating a feeling of direct contact with the nature outside.

This room opens on to a deck which is protected from the summer sun by the shade of a beautiful walnut tree.

There is also a play area for children in this room, as well as a mezzanine from which one can admire the surrounding mountains.

There is a master bedroom with a double bed, two children's bedrooms, and another bedroom which is currently used as a home cinema.

We have also all kinds of baby equipment, which you are very welcome to use if you so wish.

Our Neighbourhood

Small, quiet village without any through traffic.

Very nice view of the mountains.

There are many hiking trails and walking paths nearby which are easily accessible from our home.

More about the neighbourhood

The small town of Quillan, seven kilometres away, has all the amenities you need: public swimming pool, shops, restaurants, banks, etc. It is also a good place for white water sports, like kayaking, rafting, canyoning, etc.

In the surrounding area there are also many Cathar castles, which are well worth a visit, not only for the buildings themselves, but also for the splendid views they provide.

Carcassonne, fifty kilometres away, is a medieval town which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the most beautiful towns in France, and also has an airport used by Ryanair, among others.

The Mediterranean is sixty-five kilometres away, and you are less than an hour from the nearest ski resort, thirty-five kilometres away.

Other nearby cities with airports and Ryanair connections are Perpignan, Toulouse (one hour twenty minutes), and Girona (two hours fifteen minutes).

The city of Barcelona is about three hours from the house.
