    Property description
    Castelnau-de-Montmiral
    |
    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Approached by a long drive, this beautiful old stone farmhouse sits in total seclusion on five acres of garden and wooded hillside. Spread out before it lies a panorama of rolling countryside, woodland, vineyards and, on clear days, the distant peaks of the Pyrenees. The house itself is charming. While retaining the beauty and simplicity of an 18th century farmhouse, Lasserre is a very comfortable family home.

    The rooms are graced with original hand hewn beams, heavy oak doors, and original plaster walls with exposed beams and lovely old terracotta floors. The owners live in the property for a portion of the year and, consequently, it has been furnished to a comfortably high standard with favourite pictures and books, antique family furniture, and quality appliances.

    Lasserre is very well served by Rodez (Ryanair from Stansted) 1 hr, Toulouse (Easyjet, BA, Air France, Jet2, BMI Baby etc from LGW, LHR and Dublin) 1 hour and Carcassone (Ryanair) 1 hour. These airlines also offer a choice of UK departure points. There are a number of car hire facilities at both airports .

    If driving from the channel ports, follow signs to Paris until you see signs to Bordeaux and then on to Toulouse –this will take you east around Paris. It is a good day's drive from all the channel ports, a bit less from the Brittany ports.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay and the house is large and comfortable (the bed in the master bedroom was a bit too firm for our liking and creaks awfully everytime you move - which initially woke us up but eventually we became used to it!). Some aspects are a bit dated and in need of refurbishment but that said everything... more

We loved this house. The kitchen had everything needed including cake tins and an ice cream maker and wonderful recipe books. The huge main bedroom was a lovely room to hang out in as a family in the mornings. The pool was a tad chilly for adults, but not for children (and there was the option to pay for heating,... more
