Description

Recently converted stone barn, with two good sized bedrooms (one twin, one double), modern kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, walk-in shower and separate wc, WiFi, in a charming village at the end of no-through road, perfect for walkers, horse riding, cycling, or academics, writers and artists retreat.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The western Languedoc takes in the eastern Pyrenees, an area full of medieval history, stunning scenery, fascinating wildlife and loads of things to see and do, particularly for "adrenalin junkies". The climate is a little cooler than the eastern Languedoc, but still boasts an enviable sunshine record and summer temperatures often exceed 30 degrees - the "hairdryer winds" are left far behind here in the higher Valleys, and "fresher heat" is more usual in June to August. It is far greener and suited more to lovers

The Occitanie region

The western Languedoc takes in the eastern Pyrenees, an area full of medieval history, stunning scenery, fascinating wildlife and loads of things to see and do, particularly for "adrenalin junkies". The climate is a little cooler than the eastern Languedoc, but still boasts an enviable sunshine record and summer temperatures often exceed 30 degrees - the "hairdryer winds" are left far behind here in the higher Valleys, and "fresher heat" is more usual in June to August. It is far greener and suited more to lovers of the Great Outdoors than those desiring a traditional beach holiday, however day trips to the Med are easily done with a journey of about 90 minutes by car if you need your fix of sun, sea and sand, or a day out snorkelling or scuba diving. Vineyards are found aplenty to the north of the region

Belcaire

The Plateau du Sault is an outstandingly beautiful area, with a picture-postcard backdrop of the high Pyrenees mountains,wide open rolling meadows, quaint old French villages and huge forests, perfect for walkers and hikers, horse riders, cyclists (with both vertical and flatter terrain) and climbers (who may wish to try out the new climbing wall facilities at Belcaire). Wildlife watchers will be spoilt, with Birds of Prey including vultures and eagles, Sangliers (wild boar) and, who knows, maybe a glimpse of that rarest of creatures the Brown Bear.

Adrenalin Junkies are also in luck! In Winter and early Spring, great Skiing and snowsports are a short drive away, the nearest at Camurac is only 20 minutes, but more extensive areas at Ax-les-Thermes (40 minutes) and Les Angles (80 minutes) are well worth visiting, with Andorra's huge Grand Valira domain also only 80-90 minutes away. From late Spring to Autumn, White Water rafting, Canyoning and Acrobranche (assault courses through the trees and over waterfalls) are all "must do" activities, with Quad biking safari's, Karting (at an international outdoor track) and Paintball all nearby. A trip out to Gorges further to the South is not for the faint hearted, with narrow paths sitting aside spectacular huge drops!
Equally exciting, but less strenuous, are the many fascinating places to visit, highlights of which include:
• Carcassonne Cite - probably the largest and most impressive medieval structure in western Europe (the torture museum is a must for the kids or grown ups alike!)
• Cathar castles and medieval Abbeys - Peyrepertuse could be a filmset for the Lord of the Rings, or, closer to home, Monsegur has a fearsome climb and fascinating tale
• Large prehistoric caves around Tarascon (including one you need to traverse in a boat)
• Thermal baths at Ax-les-Thermes and other towns and the very large Spa complex at Andorra,
• The medieval town of Mirepoix with its renowned market and attractive fishing lake
• Animal lovers must visit the wolf sanctuary near Ax and the Parc Animalier at Les Angles showcasing local fawna
Wherever you choose to go, you will find spectacular landscapes, especially driving to and through the National Parks, fertile ground for artists, writers and photographers, or simply for truly idyllic and memorable picnics. Perhaps try a trip on the Yellow Train from the highest station in western Europe at Latour de Carol to Villefranche de Conflent (itself a beautiful medieval town with high walls). Book lovers may recognise some of the local landmarks made famous by Dan Brown and Kate Mosse, such as Rennes le Chateau and the legends of the Holy Grail.

Foodies are very well catered for. There is the usual wide selection of local markets, and you will find excellent produce, some with Cathalan/Spanish influences (being close to the border), some with Meditteranean influences and of course the local farm cheeses, sausages and pate. To the North (within an hour) are the vineyards of the Corbieres wine region, Limoux (the original Champagne, it is said) and the lesser known Razes Valley producing the excellent Malapere reds. If you are not in the mood to self-cater, then there is a restaurant at Belcaire, and several at nearby Espezel.

Fancy a swim locally? The nearby lake at Belcaire also has tennis, whilst 25-30 minutes away is the Puivert lake and beach (famous for its "son et lumiere" fireworks display) and the huge Lac Montbel with watersports.
