Labastide-d'Anjou Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Old stone farmhouse near canal with terrace, spacious lawns and boules cou
This self-catering holiday rental apartment has been recently renovated to a high standard. Midway between Carcassonne and Toulouse, it is easily reached from the A61 yet is peaceful and secluded. Set at one end of a 17th c. stone farmhouse it is private, spacious, and well-appointed. The swimming pool is hidden among hedges in rolling countryside of wheat and sunflower fields, far from the nearest road or neighbour. The predominant sounds are birds and church bells across the fields. A small canal with a shady hiking and bicycling path is a short walk from your front door. A small village with baker, butcher, bar, restaurants and groceries is 5 minutes away. The World Heritage site Canal du Midi is 7 minutes away. There is plenty of room for children to play while you rest in the shade with a glass of wine or try your hand at a game of petanque on our own boules court. The gite and grounds are strictly NON-SMOKING. See comments from our guestbook, below.
Calm, quiet, restful. We are in the middle of gently rolling countryside, well away from the nearest road or neighbour. Ride bicycles from the gite to the tree-shaded canal path one minute away, or enjoy our two and one-half acre garden with pool, swings, and boules court. Although secluded, our farmhouse is only a 5-minute drive from a village with butcher, baker, bar/cafe, restaurants (including the best cassoulet in the world), pharmacy, medical clinic, post and grocery market. The Canal du Midi just a few minutes away.
Convenient. We are about 45 minutes' drive from the airports and train stations in Carcasonne and Toulouse. We can be reached from the A61 motorway in 15 minutes. Most necessities are available in the village 5 minutes away; major supermarkets are 15 minutes away.
Central. We are ideally positioned for visits to all of the major sights in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Fête du Cassoulet was interesting & we added Limoux to places visited. Ste's highlight had to be the Millau Viaduct - a long trip but we have now seen it from every angle - he has the photos to prove it.
Thanks - as always - for a wonderful holiday & à bientôt!
