  • Description

    Description

    We live in old converted farmhouse in southern France with spectacular views of the Pyrenees mountains close to the town of Castelnaudrey.

    We are in easy reach of ancient walled "Le Cité" in Carcassonne and the "Rose City" of Toulouse with the added benefit of being located in the quiet french countryside with local walks.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our location can be described as remote, stunning views in all direction, but we are close to two world heritage sites, the Canal du Midi and the medieval walled cite of Carcassonne. We are only 30 minutes from the city of Toulouse which is known as the Rose city because of the stone used to build a number of the older buildings. Toulouse is also known for being in the forefront of the aeronautical and aerospace technology.

    All of this gives our visitors a wealth of choice to mix the old with the new. Also staying with us as a family of three nationalities, French, Scottish and Canadian (Wilf Snr was born in Canada) and as previous visitors have said there is always something going on to entertain them.

    What else ...

    We enjoy living in this quite area of southern France which gives us all the benefits of country living. We are close to the ancient walled "Le Cité" in Carcassonne and the "canal du midi" two World Heritage Sites. We are also close to the city of Toulouse.

    Our nearest town, Castelnaudry has all the amenities and a lovely market every Monday morning. We have spectacular views to the south and the Pyrenees mountains and to the north over the plain of Lauragais.

    It is a location that allows you, within one or two hours, to visit the Mediterranean coast, the High mountains of the Pyrenees or the lovely city of Toulouse.
