We are a family living in a newly renovated farmhouse with pool in some stunning countryside in the South of France.
While the house itself feels miles from anywhere, in fact it is just ten minutes from the market town of Pamiers with a market three times a week, supermarkets, boulangeries, pharmacies etc.
There are also several excellent and very reasonably-priced restaurants - it is perfectly possible to have a three-course gourmet lunch for well under 20 euros.
Nearby you can take part in kayaking, canoeing, horse or pony riding or a "parcours dans les arbres" (zip wires, rope ladders etc) suitable for children as young as three, visit the dinosaur park or the Parc de la Prehistoire. Alternatively you might like to take it easy the excellent spa at Ax-les-Thermes with both indoor and outdoor thermal pools. Skiing is also available at Ax Les Thermes- less than one hour away.
