Something has landed above Limoux. Set back into a slope of scrubby ever green oak, someone , somehow has managed to get planning permission for this extraordinary house. The plans displayed show a partial grass roof, and of course solar panels. The splayed 'supports' are to be a partially glazed covered terrace all the way round the building. We felt desperately nosy and would have gone over to ask the guy working on the roof loads of questions, but as there was a huge sign saying basically piss off, angry foreman at work, we didn't. Can't really blame them as it's such an amazing sight in a typical Southern French town full of pink and orange crepi covered villa-boxes that they would be inundated with boggle-eyed folks.
