Our Location

SunflowersWe are in the village of Léran, a traditional French village 100 kms from Toulouse and 50kms from Carcassonne, which are the nearest international airports. Access to and from the Toulouse/Blagnac airport is extremely easy as Toulouse is 'girt' by a peripherique which bypasses the centre of Toulouse. It connects to the autoroute going west to Bordeaux/Paris and east to Carcassonne, Narbonne and the Mediterranean. The Salvaza airport at Carcassonne is serviced by budget flights via RyanAir.

Trains run from Toulouse to Foix and Pamiers, although it is easier to hire a car at Toulouse (Blagnac) airport or Carcassonne.

photo no. 32 Carcassonne and carouselIt is suggested that people hire diesel cars because it is cheaper. Smaller cars are easier here because you will be driving through villages with narrow streets and wandering along winding country roads hedged by wild herbs and flowers. Don’t forget that the luggage storage in small cars is fairly restrictive, and for a family travelling with larger suitcases, small cars may not allow sufficient storage.

We are 3.5 hours from Barcelona and 2 hours from Andorra.

It is possible to drive to the Mediterranean from here (approx 90 minutes) or into the Pyrénées to find towns with thermal spas.
