Indoors & Outdoors

This beautiful and characterful maison was created by cleverly combining three former farmhouses which once served the chateau next door.

  • Chic and stylish, with luxury touches, Abri has plenty of space for the whole family - in fact several families - to relax in comfort.
  • Large living room with plenty of seating and a door to the garden
  • Games and TV room
  • Huge dining kitchen, fully equipped and featuring a Spanish planch barbecue
  • Study/additional TV room with sofa bed and patio doors to play area
  • Summer kitchen with access to the terrace area
  • Handy shower room and downstairs loo
  • Up the gated stairs are six bedrooms
  • Master double with dressing room and stunning en-suite bathroom with copper bath
  • Three further doubles, two with en-suite shower rooms, one with a wash basin
  • Single room with pull out bed to convert to a twin
  • Bunk room
  • Family bathroom

Parent Points:

  • For winter rentals there are two open fireplaces with guards provided
  • One double bedroom has a staircase to the garden with a door which can be locked at the top
  • Low upstairs windows have locks for safety

Outdoors

The outside space at Abri is extensive and perfect for children and grown-ups alike. The two hectares of flat grassy garden edged, with mature trees and bushes, is a fantastic area for children's ball games or simply running around and letting off steam.  

There are toys to play with, swings and a slide, and plentiful shady spaces to escape the heat of the midday sun.

A furnished terrace close to the house is the ideal spot for relaxed outdoor meals - or enjoying an evening tipple after the children are in bed - and more seating is available in an enclosed lawned garden.

The 12.5m x 6.5m enclosed, heated swimming pool is sure to be a magnet for the whole family and is a great size for both swimming and having fun. There are ample poolside sun loungers and seating.

The long drive ensures safety for little ones playing outside and plenty of privacy.

A former railway track, now a nature trail, running along the outside edge of the garden is excellent for walking and wildlife spotting.


What's Around?

The Midi Pyrenees is a region steeped in ancient mysteries and intrigue...and it's all on your doorstep.

So, when you're ready to leave the peaceful surroundings at Abri, take off to explore the land of the Cathars, medieval chateaux and historic towns alongside a wide range of family attractions.

Revel

The market town of Revel is just 8km from Abri and was not only made famous by the celebrity chef John Burton Race during his year in France, but is also renowned for its antique shops - particularly those selling and restoring furniture.

Revel's lake Saint-Ferreol offers plenty of activities for children from swimming, a high wire course, pedaloes, kayaks as well as an educational centre for learning about nutrition, you can visit the farm and discover odeurs at the l'Explorarome.

Castres

A 25 minute drive will bring you to the lovely town of Castres with its river and boat trip - not to mention the excellent restaurants.  

Just outside the town is the Parc de Gourjade with its 53 hectares of relaxing walks, picnic areas, play parks for children and roller skating area.  Minigolf, a large swimming complex and a miniature railway can also be found here.

Castelnaudary

Castelnaudary, famous for its delicious duck cassoulet and the Canal du Midi, is just half an hour from Abri and is a great outing.

It's a real pleasure to wander the narrow streets admiring the fine old mansions, restored windmill and 18th century semaphore tower, stopping to enjoy a coffee while you watch the world go by or shopping for a picnic in the market.

There's a lovely view of the town from the canal's Grand Bassin, from where it looks remarkably like a Greek island town, with its ancient houses climbing the hillside from the water's edge.

Carcassonne

Take your little knights and princesses on the one-hour trip to Carcassone to visit the ancient walled citadel, a fairytale collection of drawbridges, towers and atmospheric cobbled streets reputedly the inspiration for Walt Disney’s The Sleeping Beauty.

This medieval marvel is France's second-most visited tourist spot after the Eiffel Tower.

Although officially a city, Carcassonne is rather sleepy and small, with a pleasant central square and interesting shops and restaurants.

The lower town features typically French bars, charming boutiques, cafes, eateries and, in the winter, a temporary ice rink.  Drink in the atmosphere and enjoy the authentic gallic experience.
