    this is all what you can do in this aera. including all water activities at 15 km (windsurfing, pedalo, sailing, swimming). Here, close to the farm, there is a beach by the river a few minutes by bike ( 2 km) . We have bicycles available. (They may need a little maintenance), if you have to move further we will take you to the train station. There are also great hiking trails all around. And the neighboring village festivals are great and good quality music. (at 4 km from here). You have also bus going to Carcassonne and, further, the sea (45 minuts and 1:30 hour) . Andorra is 1:30 hour from here too. And Spain not very far too for a week end in Cadaques or Barcelona...
