Sunny and childfriendly family house near Toulouse, S-W of France. Open for summer 2020.

 We live in Escalquens, a village close to Toulouse (13 kms ), in a very quiet place, with a friendly neighbourhood. You can find many local shops in Escalquens, and a large shopping center with restaurants at 10 min drive.

Toulouse is at 20 minutes (10 min drive to the subway, then direct to the center with free car park). Toulouse is a very nice and interesting city with many historic places to visit, museums, attractions and fine restaurants :

About 5 kms from the house, is the "Canal du midi", which connects Toulouse with Sete. It's totally shady and you can safely walk or bike :
