  • Description

    Description

    John and I have lived in this amazingly beautiful part of France for 15 years. We have 2 children and 6 grandchildren all living in the UK. We share our house with 3 dogs and 5 cats, outside we have 4 horses 1 pony, and 13 chickens. If you like to ride horses we have lovely countryside all round us, where we can ride for miles and miles. We both love all animals and I volunteer and raise funds for the local dog rescue kennels . We are 4 kilometres away from the beautiful medieval town of Mirepoix, 30 minutes from Carcassonne and 1 hour from Toulouse.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is a great area for hiking, cycling, mountain walks, canoeing/kayaking, white water rafting etc etc. This is Cathar country, so lots of old castles to explore, caves with underground rivers, in fact the whole region is steeped in history. There is a very popular, weekly, local market in Mirepoix .
