The street leading to the building plot is a dead end so it is only frequented by a few neighbours. The building plot is surrounded on one side by 3 houses. The two other sides are just bare fields, the fourth being the street. At the end of the street starts a wooded hill, called Saint Sauveur, well known to local kids to play and build huts.
Vernajoul is a typical rural village of the Ariège with around 600 inhabitants and still a few farms in activity. There are 2 schools in the village.
The village is located on a plateau over the Ariège river. Foix, capital town of the “départment” is just 3 km away. Whereas Foix is built at the bottom of the Ariège valley, Vernajoul is built on a higher plateau, thus enjoying longer period of sunshine, along with nice views of the Pyrenees and their foothills.
The medium size mediaeval town of Foix is just a 3 minutes' drive and boasts a Mediaeval castle, shops, restaurants, regional gastronomy, a frequent picturesque fresh produce market and all amenities including a brand new hospital.
The region offers an impressive range of outdoor activities in the Pyrenees such as ski, golf, hiking, biking, climbing, horse riding, canoeing / water sports, fishing and plenty other summer activities in a wild unspoiled nature.
