Description of Property:
At the end of our private drive, you enter the stone-built farmhouse across a gravelled courtyard. The large living room has a well equipped kitchen at one end with oak work tops, a dining area, and a living area with comfy sofas, rugs, and a log burning stove. The main room opens onto your own private walled garden. Up the open stairs, there is a generous hallway. The main bedroom has a superking-size bed with Tempur mattress, the second bedroom has twin beds, and there is a modern oak-topped shower room. Separate utility room. We combine the traditional look of an old French farmhouse with tiled or wooden floors and big open beams with our own more modern uncluttered style, with original art work and silk hangings from our travels. Wifi, internet, TV, DVD, telephone. For occasional visitors, you could consider using additional en suite double or twin rooms just across the courtyard. There is a swimming pool for summer use, table tennis, and loads of books, games, and things to do.
Outside Amenities: The farmhouse has its own private garden with plants, trees and a small lawn, with garden furniture, BBQ, etc. It is part of an ancient farming estate, which once belonged to the 1000 year old Chateau next door, so you will be surrounded by gardens, mature trees, and orchards leading onto our own fields and footpaths, a small lake and oak woodlands, and you can walk in every direction from the front door. The bird, animal, and plant life is remarkable and has been surveyed by experts. From the highest part of our land, its possible to see about 200kms of the length of the Pyrenees, from the Med coast almost to the Atlantic. The area is one of lovely rolling hills, often wooded, and hill-top villages; we are on the same latitude as Sienna and the countryside can be similar, although with the magnificent Pyrenees in the background.
Surrounding Area: The surrounding area is full of interest and is different in every direction. Our local town of Mirepoix is one of the most lovely medieval market towns in France and has a broad range of shops and restaurants. Carcassonne (and airport) is about 30 mins away; Toulouse (and airport) about an hour. To the north are the Montagne Noire, Castelnaudary, and the Canal du Midi. South are the mountains, with skiing, walking, caving, water sports, and the Cathar castles (you can see Montsegur and a ski station from our land). East are the high mountains and great caves and rivers of the Ariege, and the thermal baths and skiing at Ax les Thermes and Andorra. West is wine country, and the Med with its pretty fishing villages and wide sandy beaches is just over an hour. There is a lot to see and do, even in the winter.
