Here you are in the heart of France and its traditional way of life. This property is privately situated in 90 hectares of private farming estate owned by a charming couple (Madame is English) who breed sheep, pigs and ducks with their own pond. They make their own products such as foie gras, confit de canard and charcuterie; these along with their organic vegetables and fresh eggs can be purchased from them. They are proud of their work and, only if you are interested, will be delighted to show guests around their estate. La Ferme de Madeleine is in easy reach of many historic spots like the Cathar castles, Le Canal du Midi, the medieval city of Carcassonne or Toulouse. It is also 5 minutes from the village of St Papoul where you will find a grocery shop, boulangerie, a cafe and a fabulous Benedictine Abbey. 15 minutes drive away is the medieval village of Saissac known for its Cathar castle. Revel is also about 15 minutes and has a good range of shops plus traditional workshops with furniture restorers, stone cutters, and most importantly, some excellent restaurants. Also, you must not miss the market of Revel on Saturdays one of the best around. 
You are also at the foothill of La Montagne Noire and its lakes ideal for bathing, windsurfing, canoeing and many other activities. From the house you can go on marked walks and discover the local wildlife, go horse riding or cycling. 
 You are one hour away from the coast and 1.5 hours from the Pyrenees, which you can see from the property.
