A beautiful restored farmhouse, nestling in an acre of garden, just 4km from Fanjeaux, 15 mins by car from Mirepoix and 30 mins from Carcassonne. A very private and peaceful property. The house faces south with large poolside terraces & gardens rolling downhill to the wood. In the distance you can see the Pyrenees.
There are 2 double & 2 twin bedrooms. We have 3 ensuite shower rooms and a separate bathroom. There is an upstairs sitting area with wood burner and sofa and an enormous principal lounge with dining table, comfortable sofas and open fire. The kitchen is well equipped for all your catering needs. Outside is a shady eating terrace overlooking the pool. The house has TV, DVD, satellite, internet with wi-fi, & a CD player with external speakers for lazy days.The large swimming pool (12.5M x 6.5M) is freshwater, using UV sterilisation, we use a little chlorine in the maintenance. It has an approved safety fence which is compulsory under French law.
We are lucky to have some wonderful places to eat within a half hours drive. The Chateau at Camon is wonderful and very atmospheric and Domaine Gayda is a winery which also has a superb restaurant. Mirepoix has lots of restaurants and there is a friendly, family run restaurant in Fanjeaux, La Table Cathare. Great value.
The area is famous for it's Cathar castles and many are within easy reach. Don't miss Mirepoix market on Mondays, it's a perfect place to enjoy a coffee and people watch. Le Cite of Carcassonne is quite stunning and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants. Try to go early or leave it until later in the afternoon and perhaps have a meal there in the evening. Fanjeaux is worth a visit too, if only to see the amazing view from the Seignadou (viewing place), where on a clear day you can see for miles around. You can take a little boat from Bram or Trebes along the Canal du Midi and take a picnic with you, or visit one of the many wineries in the area for a Degustation!
