The domaine is situated near Fanjeaux (where the Romans had a temple to Jupiter), the medieval fortified Carcassonne, the Cathar castles of Queribus, Peyrepertusis and Montsegur. The lovely medieval village Mirepoix is close by and has a market every week. These markets can also be found in Revel, Castelnaudary and Limoux. The canal du Midi is a world heritage site where boats can be rented or walks can be made along the shaded banks of the canal (ideal for a picnic). Around the farmhouse there are walkings set out that are also suitable for mountain bikes. For those who like mountain-hiking, the Pyrenees are at less then one hour drive. Famous wine regions like the Minervois, the Corbieres, the Cabardes, Limoux (sparkling white wine) and Fitou are nearby. The Mediterranean beaches are at only one hour drive. Furthermore there is the lac Ganguise (sailing and windsurfing), Toulouse (city of the squares), Albi (birthplace of Toulouse Lautrec), Montolieu (village of the books) and Andorre. We regularly arrange a wine-tasting in a chateau nearby.
