Description

Le Domaine du Colombier lies on the edge of the village of Pennautier, 3 miles from Carcassonne. It is a spacious, south-facing, detached property with a copse and large walled garden, private and not overlooked. The swimming-pool 11x5ms is situated in one corner of the copse, with an extended paddling area 3x3ms. The garage offers secure parking for at least two cars. Le Domaine has bags of space inside and out, and is absolutely ideal for children.

Pennautier is a lively village with a lot going on. It has its own theatre and it organises a piano festival in the summer. Le Domaine is a 5-minute walk to the village shops - baker, butcher, general store, bar etc. and a good middle-range restaurant near the river. Groups with children tell us that easy access to local shops has been a great convenience to them. Pennautier is three miles from the nearest autoroute access, and from there it is a quick, easy drive to the coastal resorts of Narbonne Plage and Gruissan, or to

Groups with children tell us that easy access to local shops has been a great convenience to them. Pennautier is three miles from the nearest autoroute access, and from there it is a quick, easy drive to the coastal resorts of Narbonne Plage and Gruissan, or to Toulouse in the other direction. Carcassonne airport is also about three miles away, but the few daily flights will cause you no disturbance. The Canal du Midi, a World Heritage Site, is a short drive away, offering a delightful stroll along the tow path or an easy bike-ride for the family. You can take boat trips from Carcassonne, Bram or Homps. Carcassonne is Europe's largest medieval fortified city, an incredible place with its multiple ramparts and fortifications. It has plenty in the way of entertainment and historical interest, with good restaurants and fun for the children. Further afield, you have the Montagne Noire to the north and the Corbieres hills to the south, both well worth exploring. They offer good walking country, with spectacular caves on the slopes of the Montagne Noire,

Back to Le Domaine: you enter through big metal gates into the courtyard, with the large garage to your left. Upstairs, you have two double bedrooms, one with en suite shower, bath and basin; and three twin bedrooms. The main bathroom has bath and shower, and there is another separate shower also. You will like the decor and the high level of comfort and convenience. There are two living-rooms on the ground floor, one with satellite TV, DVD player and many books in English, the other 'sun room' running along the south side of the house. The TV receives UK programmes. The house has wi-fi. From the sun room, French doors take you out onto the south-facing dining terrace which overlooks the garden. The walled garden is grassed with shrubs and bushes, and there is a double swing for the children. A boltable gate lead you into the copse with its gazebo and its fine view to the Pyrenees. The exclusive swimming-pool, 11x5 ms with extended paddling area, has a broad patio decked as ever with loungers, hammok, swing, table and chairs. The patio has a child-proof entrance.

We have had Le Domaine for about ten years and it has proved very popular with many regular 'returnees'. You will not be disappointed, we assure you.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Pennautier is a lively house-proud village, fiercely independent of Carcassonne 2-3 miles away! The church stands aloft the medieval centre with its narrow streets and alleyways. The river Fresquel flows by at its foot, near a good restaurant associated with the Chateau de Pennautier. The village bar serves meals too. The Pennautier wine is very good value. . The village has its own sports hall, a theatre and other leisure facilities. A local piano festival is held in the summer. There's a bus into Carcassonne. The main road into the city is about a mile away. While you could easily live off the shops in the village, Carcassonne bypass has the big supermarkets for stocking-up - again only a mile or two away.

Pennautier

Worth getting a guidebook to Carcassonne before your trip. It's a wonderful place with good things for children. You can get boat trips on the Canal du Midi at Carcassonne and Bram - very relaxing. Our papers will list for you the interesting places to visit within 50 miles. The many ruined abbeys and castles recall the area's sanguinary history. Again, worth reading about the Cathars before your stay. The autoroute 3 miles away makes exploring very easy - to the coastal resorts or to Toulouse. The Montagne Noire is to your north, where there are deep, safe caves are open to the public; the Corbieres hills are to the south. Nearest coastal resorts: Narbonne Plage and Gruissan. We like Peyriac de Mer. Montpellier, Sete, Agde and Nimes are all within a day's round trip.
