About Martin Symons
For many years with young children in tow we holidayed all over France. The children loved the outdoor life, with plenty of sunshine, and we loved the French way of life, the people, the large open spaces and last, but not least, good food and wine. It became a dream to one day own a little slice of that French life and to find a haven of peace from our frenetic English lifestyle. After several years searching we found En Magne. Our children have now left home, but we all visit frequently together with our friends. We have had many happy times, so the house is full of fond memories. Current commitments mean we cannot spend as much time as we would like in our French home, so we thought we would take this opportunity to offer it for holidays.
Martin Symons purchased this Farmhouse in 2000
Why Martin Symons chose Bertre
Having spent 4 years looking in various parts of France, our then quite young children wanted to be near skiing and the beach. We both wanted an old farmhouse in a relatively rural, but not too isolated, location with plenty of space. The edge of a hamlet was ideal so we could get to know local people. When we saw En Magne on a hillside overlooking this glorious countryside, we knew it was for us. The children loved it too. Discovering much more of the area came later and we still find so much to do, although many of our friends who visit don’t want to leave En Magne and its environs.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Apart from the stunning location (surrounded by sunflowers in the summer), the area is very peaceful and the locals very friendly. Puylaurens (5kms) has a good supply of supermarkets, boulangeries, butcher, banks (with ATM), cave, tourist board and post office. There are several restaurants and cafes and a market on Wednesday. There is a Roman road within a 1km offering walking (randonees) and cycling. It is within an hour of Toulouse and Carcassone with easy airport access. The surrounding area has a vast selection of delightful towns and villages, many offering wonderful markets.
