  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our house is often full during some holidays, so we have fewer opportunities to welcome during these times.
    We can pick you up at the station of Castelnaudary (30 minutes from Toulouse by train)

    Notre maison est souvent pleine pendant certaines vacances, donc nous avons moins de possibilités d'accueil durant ces périodes.
    Nous pouvons aller vous chercher à la gare de Castelnaudary (30 mn de Toulouse en train)
