Lodgings.


The Hothouse is a real 'chambre d'hôte' in that we only have one 'guest' room.
It is a comfortable  double-bedded (queen size) room with garden view and direct access though the  French windows.
A childs futon can be added to the room if required.

We also have slightly more... rustic accommodation (no bathroom or loo - access main house for the 'facilities') in my writer/artist studio. Sleeps one, two or three (double futon and day bed)

Summer relaxation.


Yes, it also gets very hot here...a few days last year were around 40 degrees in the garden. Again exceptional.
Limoux has a mostly mediterranean climate, dry hot summers, and fairly mild winters with the odd very cold snap. Lots of sunshine!

Winter sports.



Yes, it does get cold here......Fairly exceptional winter this year with serious snow for here! Limoux is well situated as a base for skiing, the nearest ski station being just an hour away. The view here is taken from one of our favourite walks up on the hills above the house.

Welcome to the hothouse.


Follow the blog for pictures of the house, garden, food etc...

Lunch, dinner, parties.





We can provide you with lunch, or dinner, or cater for larger parties if you have friends staying locally. We use organic produce, and local foods where possible, curry a speciality of the hothouse!

Hothouse food.





We grow as much food as possible, still learning! these are some things the garden produces without much help from us...chilies, almonds, figs and pomegranates.
