Large "maison" with big airy rooms and lots of space both inside and out for a family to enjoy. We bought the house in 2013 and have done lots of renovation. It is still not 5 star but it is comfortable and has everything you need for a great holiday. Hoping for wifi by summer 2018. It is situated about an hour from Toulouse, the pink city, with the aerospace museum and other interesting sights. The house is also an hour from the Pyrenees where you can, ski, hike, raft or go canyoning.
If you would prefer to relax near home it is easy not to leave the garden! However close by you can cycle and walk around the deserted lanes or enjoy swimming at the outdoor pool in Boulogne sur Gesse (3km away) where you will also find tennis and crazy golf. About 6km away is Saint Blanchard where there is a beach for lake swimming, it is easy to spend the day here as there is a snack bar etc.
Boulogne sur Gesse also has a butchers, two bread shops and two supermarkets as well as several restaurants, bars and a pizza take away. You don't need to go any further!
If you would like some culture you can venture to Auch to find D'artignan or Carcassonne with all its medieval history.
This area of France is famous for its duck and in the summer you can visit one of our favourite restaurants "Duck and Chips" where they have live music on Saturday nights.
There is a market in Boulogne sur Gesse on Wednesday and other towns in the local area with markets mean that there is one every day of the week.
