You can take a boat ride on the canal from here or eat in a restaurant beside the canal. Castelnaudary now has a Hyper supermarket and a wide range of new shops. Nearby there is a Michelin star restaurant. Revel has a huge Saturday market with stall holders selling local produce and where you can sit and drink a coffee and catch the ambiance of the market. Just outside Revel towards the Black Mountains is the lake of St Ferreol where you can go fishing, walking, swimming or take a ride on the lake in a pedalo. The Rigole which is a feeder stream for the Canal du Midi coming from the Black Mountains is just one kilometer from the house and you can walk by there or take a bike ride with the bikes we provide. Nearby there is horse riding, canoeing, tennis and golf. A little further away are the wine regions of the Corbières and the Minervois where you can sample some wine tasting. Toulouse which is less than an hour is worth a visit. The city with its red brick construction and different styles of architecture. The Cité de L'Espace or Space City is a good day out for the children with its planetarium and copy of the MIR space station. The city of Albi is close which houses the Toulouse-Lautrec museum.
