How rural is the location, and how far is the nearest large town?
We are situated in a mountain region, which is rural and quiet & very scenic. We are at an altitude of 400m (1320ft). So the air is always clean and fresh. We are 5 minutes walk from the Village of Cambounes which has a Church, Primary school and a little grocery shop. The lovely town of Brassac is 10 minutes drive. This town has everything you need, Bakery, Butcher, News agent, convenience stores, cafes and restaurants, Tourist office, Post office and bank. There is also a market every Monday. We are equal distance between two large towns, Castres & Mazamet. They are both under 20 minutes drive from here. Both towns have lots to see and have markets a few days a week, where you can buy fresh local produce from the region. They have plenty of great restaurants to eat out at very affordable prices.
Is it possible to rent all of the houses to accommodate a large group or extended family group?
Absolutely! Each house is self contained and is perfect for extended family groups, or large groups of friends.
The accommodation is self-catering. How can we arrange activities?
Even though the accommodation is self-catering, we will be on hand to arrange any activities you may be interested in. For Kayaking or Horse riding we will arrange the equipment hire and pre-book for you. For walking and Mountain biking we have lots of ideas and suggestions for routes and can advise on the best length to match your fitness level. We can arrange mountain bike hire on-site and usually recommend that you try a guided outing unless you are experienced. It's a pretty strenuous experience but very enjoyable. But if you're not into too much activity, there are lots of really nice places to visit and relax and just enjoy the sunshine and nice surroundings. Not to mention the great local wines and food.
