FAQ

We’ve compiled a list of answers to common questions.

What child facilities do you offer?

We are very family oriented, with an enclosed swimming pool. An in-ground trampoline with enclosure. There is a wooden play tower for 5-12 year olds. An enclosed area in the play barn for under fives. As well as table tennis and games consoles for older children. We can supply cots, high chairs and stairgates for smaller children. DVDs and books can be borrowed from the information room between the Farmhouse and the Grange.

What is the nearest town and what are the facilities?

Lautrec is our nearest village, about 10 minutes. It’s a medieval village with an ancient windmill. There is an exceptional boulangerie (Marti) on the roundabout into Lautrec. A small convenience store ‘Utile’ for vital items. There is also a bank and post office off the main square.

Where are the nearest supermarkets?

We are well serviced for supermarkets. A large E. Leclerc is about 15 minutes towards Castres. Intermarché in Graulhet is around 20 minutes. Super U is 20 minutes in Soual. A large Auchan is located on the Route de Toulouse just outside Castres about 20 minutes.

Which airports are nearby?

Toulouse is the main airport, about an hour from La Bastide. Carcassonne is also around an hour, Rodez is about 45 minutes. Easy Jet flies from London Gatwick and Bristol to Toulouse. Ryan Air flies from Manchester and East Midlands to Carcassonne. Jet2 flies from Manchester to Toulouse. British Airways also flies these routes as well as Air France.

Best route for coming via car?

The routes to La Bastide from the UK are varied. The shortest drive involves taking the ferry from Portsmouth overnight to St. Malo and the drive is 8 hours roughly non-stop. For Euro Tunnel to Calais it’s about 12 hours non-stop drive. Driving of course allows a more leisurely arrival stopping off at various places on route.
