Sparkling B&B in a big rambling 18th century farmhouse with polished mahogany and family memorabilia. The blue-shuttered exterior is prettier than a picture while bedrooms are sunny and charming, more English than French. The garden has lovely woodland and pastoral views with a rare weeping beech in the field. Harriet is a Cordon Bleu-trained cook and dinners are convivial and delicious. Splash in the big swimming pool, stroll woodland walks with stunning views of the Pyrénées. Mirepoix, once an important cathedral town, is just down the road for country antiques and pottery shops. Carcassone is a nice day trip.
