We have 2 beach lakes nearby: Boulogne Sur Gesse 25 minutes away and Samatan 35 minutes away. They have plenty of sand, picnic areas, swimming and water slides.
Biarritz is 2 hours to the West and Narbonne Plage 2.5 hours to the East.
Toulouse is just 50 mins drive and can be accessed by most main UK airports. Pau and Carcassone are 90 mins away.
Use of a car is essential.
House is just 15 mins from motorway exit.
House is also 15 mins from mainline train station.
We're are a 50 minutes drive south from Toulouse. It sits on the outskirts of the small farming village of Boussan with views over the Perron Valley and on the gentle foothills of the Pyrenees. The famed medieval town, Aurignac, is a 4 minute drive and offers a healthy mix of food, sport and archaeological remains! Furthermore the road network is excellent, giving us access to the Pyrenees spas and ski resorts within an hour and Lourdes just a little longer.
Families with children - We have a detailed list of the best places to entertain the whole family. The house itself is ready and waiting to welcome children of all ages and their tired parents! There are swings, games and toys galore for younger ones plus basketball, football, badminton, table tennis and local walks and cycle routes in the area. If relaxing by the pool is high on the agenda, there's plenty to keep them occupied.
Cycling and walking - The Tour de France route is never far away and last year was on our doorstep. It is testament to the variety of hills and flat available for the amateur and experienced cyclist alike. We can recommend a number of routes for you to try; ones anchored to market towns, or churches, or bars, or wildlife. The choice is yours! If you envisage a more peaceful holiday then this area is ideal with many marked paths and open countryside to walk. For more of a challenge the beauty of the Pyrenean National Park is only an hour away where you will see eagles, vultures, kites and a variety of mammals in their natural habitat. Birdwatchers need venture no further than the terrace at Esbayles to observe eagles, kites, buzzards and many other species so bring your binoculars.
Food glorious food - The South West is the food hot spot of France and locals more typically eat out for lunch, followed by socialising amongst friends or at eating at home for the evening. Should you not want to slip into this way of life then we can easily guide you to those local restaurants that open at night too. When it suits you to eat at home, you'll have the choice of a farmhouse or an alfresco set up.

About Luke March
Sarah and I live near Salisbury in Wiltshire where since I retired from a career in business I now have non executive roles in health and heritage organisations. With our two sons we rented houses all over France for our annual holidays. Now that they have embarked on their own careers we decided to acquire a property which we could not only use on a more regular basis to share with our friends but which would also be available for others to use.
Luke March purchased this Farmhouse in 2012
Why Luke March chose Boussan
We have always admired this area as it is not only peaceful and genuinely French but it also very accessible for communication links to the mountains and the sea, in addition to its closeness to Toulouse and the motorway network.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The farmhouse is just five minutes from Aurignac which has a range of excellent shops and most important of all three boulangeries. The property is very spacious with 7 bedrooms and 4 shower/bath rooms and yet is still comfortable so that it is ideal from our experience for hosting family groups of all ages and for smaller groups. It has a large garden with delightful eating areas and a heated pool, and sits in an area of over 40 acres of fields and woodland. As two bedrooms and a bathroom are situated on the ground floor there is good access for those who are less mobile. The property now also includes a separate one bedroom converted barn for further guests or helpers available on request at an additional charge.
