«CHEZ BIQUETTE» that’s the house name!
French friends guided us to this brand new «house» in the TOULOUSE area. «CHEZ BIQUETTE» a former sheepfold! The transformation is outstanding!
First the location: It’s in a small village : ROUMENS (more specifically: Métairie «En Salles») Out of regular tourists routes we were still able to access very easily all of France South-West regions (Toulouse, Carcassonne, Collioure, Albi etc.) As a matter of fact the house is 1 hour 45 minutes away from ANDORRE! We were even able to reach BARCELONE within a 4 hours drive (perfect roads!) It’s also just besides the Canal du Midi.
The HOUSE itself – we could not believe our luck! I guess we were among the first guests as it opened summer 2014! It’s a stand alone house, about 30 meters away from the owner’s mansion. Totally renovated, enlarged and with all the modern facilities and more! Ground level has a totally equipped kitchen, with an induction cooking surface!. A large room with washing machine and a WC (has they say)
A huge living room with a fire place (running with wood pellets) I don’t even have that at home!
Access to the terrace and private pool (sparkling water) is through an 8 feet patio door.
On the second floor, 2 large rooms and a complete bathroom (large shower as a matter of fact). With the hide a bed in the living room you have ample space for a family of 6.
The owners are discreet, yet very amiable. As I speak French fluently I was able to appreciate Philippe’s knowledge on agriculture (the house stands in a rural area) but, as a native he suggested places to see, restaurants to discover. Beatrice, his wife, guided my wife to some local delicacies and market places.
We spent a week (late September 2014) at CHEZ BIQUETTE and can only hope that we can go back again.
