For those simply wanting to relax and unwind, Domaine de Badens is hard to beat. Walks and quiet corners are abundant, with the sound of babbling water ever-present. The river is well known among local trout fishermen and fishing permits can be bought locally. Nights are wonderfully quiet, save for a few hooting owls and barking deer. You might see an occasional walker from the village passing through the property from the dam with their dogs on a weekend, but otherwise it is totally private.
The village of Cenne Monestiés is an artists haven. The village is also situated on the southern slopes of the Montagne Noire and is on the edge of the Parc Naturel Régional du Haut Languedoc. It is in the heart of Cathar country and there are numerous castles, abbeys and ruins in the region that can be readily visited during a day trip. The Domaine is situated 12 km from the very pretty Canal du Midi and during the winter skiing can be found within an hours drive.
There are a number of picturesque villages in the surrounding area that have range of restaurants to suit all tastes and where you can sample local foods and wines. There are several Michelin starred restaurants within a quick drive. Good meals can be had at Domaine Gayda, a vineyard that boasts a fine restaurant. Excellent bakers can be found in Alzonne, St Papoul, Saissac and Bram. Traditional markets are held in many local towns with those in Revel, Bram, Carcassonne and Limoux recommended.
Domaine de Badens is about 14 km from the village of Bram where you can access the A61 AutoRoute (exit 22). To reach Cenne Monestiés follow the D4 towards St Martin le Vieil and then follow the signs. To reach the domaine you need to drive through the village towards the barrage; a small panel with ´Badens´ written on it marks the entrance of the drive we share with our two neighbours. Stay on the main track until you arrive at the house.
The city of Toulouse lies 75km to the west, Narbonne (the Mediterranean coast) 80km and Carcassonne 25km to the east and the Pyrenees are less than 50 km away. Barcelona is a four hour drive (assuming no traffic) and Andorra is within two hours. If you are driving to the airport in Toulouse from the Domaine give yourself an hour and a half - traffic can be slow during rush hour. Carcassonne can also reached via the AutoRoute but the local roads are as efficient.
The nearest airports are located at Toulouse-Blagnac (80 km) and Carcassonne (25 km) provide routine connections to many European destinations. Both airports have a range of rental car agencies. A convenient and frequent shuttle bus (the navette) transfers passengers between Toulouse Airport and Toulouse-Matabiau train station.
Trains to Bram and Carcassonne from Toulouse and Narbonne are reasonably frequent (every hour or so).
