Big house with garden near the Pyrenees
Welcome to our home in the mountains!
We have a lovely family, impatient to meet you!
Our Home & Location
We live in a large comfortable house with a large walled garden full of plants and trees in the beautiful small mountain village of Nébias, 1 hour south of Carcassonne, 1.5 hours from Perpignan and 2 hours from Toulouse. The nearest villages are Quillan (10km) and Puivert (7.5km). Puivert has a nice old castle and a small lake where you can swim when it is warm enough. There is a nice view of the surrounding hills from the house, and plenty of options for hiking and off or on road cycling. Nebias is famous for the green labyrinth forest hiking trail which starts 10 minutes walk from our house.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our very loving and enthusiastic girl dog Yuki loves her daily long walks (1 to 1.5 hours) in the surrounding countryside and forests, where she can spread her legs and run to her heart's content. She also really enjoys fetching sticks or balls. However, she is less enthusiastic about going out for a walk if it is raining.
Freya is our eldest girl and is extremely affectionate. She requires her daily dose of cuddles and will let you know about it. Don't be surprised if she jumps on your lap as soon as you sit down, especially if you've been busy around the house and not paying her enough attention....
Yuki and Freya always sleep in bed with us, Freya usually cuddling up on your arm under the duvet and Yuki normally on top of the duvet between us, and more often than not, leaning against one of us.
Maya is quite shy. It normally takes her a few days (and a few meals...) before she starts trusting newcomers. She is very affectionate once she knows you, but you need to allow her to come to you when she is ready. She may or may not sleep in bed with visitors, it depends on each individual.
Batu is our only boy and the youngest member of our family. You might notice him most when you wake up in the middle of the night, or in the morning, with him lying in between your feet on top of the blanket. He is usually quite friendly, especially at meal times.
Milou is the latest addition to our family. He's a 4 years old border collie that we adopted in August 2018. He is extremely affectionate and always looking for a cuddle. He loves going for walks with Yuki and they have a great time chasing each other and running around like crazy.
They all get their breakfast around 9-10 am, and their dinner around 8pm. For the exact proportions, we will let you know when you are here. We try to fill up their water bowl as often as possible, especially in the summer.
Finally, our cats like a clean toilet, so we try to clean their toilets daily.
When we leave the house without Yuki, we generally close her inside the house, and leave the bathroom window open so the cats can move around freely. + More info
