About the owners

Nicki & Ady

We moved to Montengrand from London in 2004 when our daughter, Mo, was little. It’s a peaceful and beautiful rural setting in the midi-Pyrenees.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Book a babysitter for the evening and head off to enjoy a sumptuous five-course dégustation menu at the wonderful, romantic L’Abbaye-Château de Camon.

  • For a real taste of a bustling traditional French market, head to Mirepoix on a Monday morning. Kick things off with breakfast at a cafe on the main square.

  • The massive Lac de Montbel is a great place to head for the day, with boats for hire, swimming and little ponies that can be taken for walks during the summer months.

  • At Parc de la Préhistoire you can learn all about the daily lives of prehistoric people; it’s a fun day out, complete with spear chucking, fire lighting and cave painting.

  • Kids and adults alike will delight at Carcassonne’s fairy tale La Cité; jousting exhibitions are held in its centre in July and August.
