departement of the
Aude, within a pleasant car-drive of
Caracassonne, Toulouse (both with
airports),the Mediterranean coast and the Pyrenees, these farmhouses
offer peaceful retreats in beautiful French countryside, 'la France
profonde' unchanged by tourism -- and bases from which to tour
mountains and coast, vineyards and forests, fine cities , picturesque
villages, castles, abbeys and places full of history with good wine,
local produce, fine cuisine, music and feasting to help you enjoy them.
The houses are comfortable, well-modernised and well-equipped, in
surroundings where children can have adventure in safety and where
adults can enjoy nature in peace yet with shops, supermarkets,
and restaurants a short car-ride away. You may get here by air-flights
and local car hire, or by fast auto-routes and discounted ferry-fares
for your own car --- but once here you will love the calm of empty
back-roads and quiet lanes .
