House in CASTRES ( region Occitanie near TOULOUSE and ALBI), South-West France

 
Our house, very quiet ( neighbors are not so near from our house), (150m2 with five double beds and a big garden of 2000m2) is situated in the country side, in Castres ( well known for Goya museum, a city ( 50 000 ) about one hour from Toulouse ( 4 th city in France and above all MOST PLEASANT CITY IN FRANCE according to french) and Carcassonne ( and its Castle classified UNESCO among the five most visited monuments in France) and an half hour from Albi (classified Unesco last year with a well known cathedral and Toulouse-Lautrec museum). There is also places to bathe (Saint Ferreol's lake at 30 min) and places to have fun with kids like Cap découverte at 45 min. Moreover we are in a region well known for its gastronomy and wine (Gaillac). The nearest airport are Toulouse ( a lot of connecting flights with easy jet, ryanair, Volotea...) and Carcassonne, both situaded about one hour drive.

We are open for summer 2020 and others holidays ( long week-ends, especially near our home with Spain or near low-cost airport) , everywhere even if we would like to visit Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Slovenia, Morocco, Croatia. But nothing is closed!
 
With Intervac we' ve been with satisfaction  in Belgium (Namur), Spain (Sevilla, Premia de mar,Girona, Barcelona, Valencia, Pego), Italy ( Pelago, Lido di Dante, Ravenna), Sweden (Lund, Stockholm), Germany (Wismar), England (Winchester), Austria (Krems), Nederland (Amsterdam, Harleem). Even if we have favourites destinations, we are open about others propositions.
