About the property

5 bedroom stone house with gite between Toulouse and Carcassonne

This charming, beautifully situated stone house with attached gîte is a perfect holiday home for one or two families. Located close to the village of Laurabuc, the main house has 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. The kitchen/dining area offers wonderful views of the garden, pool (10m x 5m) and surrounding fields. The large and light family sitting room has French doors which lead out to the landscaped garden. The adjoining gîte has two bedrooms, a sitting room and a separate shower room. The rear garden offers glorious views of fields and the foothills of the Pyrenees. In the grounds of the property are two impressive ruins; one of a wind mill and the other a watermill.

The Moulin is an ideal holiday property situated in 4 acres of land. In addition to the swimming pool and trampoline there is a covered dell full of soft fruit trees, a free flowing stream and the ruins of a disused watermill and windmill. The nearby fields are full of sunflowers and other crops. There is a beautiful walk through pine trees to a small chapel at the top of a hill which provides breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

Around Laurabuc : A short car-drive will take you to the lovely banks of the Canal du Midi, or the markets of Castelnaudary and Mirepoix (the latter in a perfect medieval arcaded town-square), or just a little further to the battlements of Carcassonne. Situated between the mountains of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean coast, there is much to see -- abbeys, old churches, castles, pretty villages and fortified towns – or imposing cities like Toulouse, Perpignan, Narbonne -- museums like those of Toulouse-Lautrec in Albi.

Other Activities: golf (30 mins drive), sailing, canoe & windsurfing (40 minutes drive), sea-sports (60 minutes drive)

Excellent holiday home, "away from it all"!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property, with a main house and a gite, housing easily 9 to 10 persons. We spent our holiday there during two weeks in august 2013 and we were very happy. The garden is spacious, the environment excellent for (mountain) biking. The pool is cleaned twice a week. The owners are very helpful. Upon arrival the kitchen fridge was broken. After a small text message to the owner, a new fridge arrived the next day. Excellent service...

Nous reviendrons!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette belle maison : l'accueil est particulièrement soigné (lits faits à notre arrivée, quelques provisions pour notre première soirée), la maison bien décorée, est très agréable, tout comme la piscine et le jardin. C'était un endroit idéal pour revenir après une journée à visiter la région ou pour passer la journée entière!
