Directions to Le Castelou

From Blagnac/Toulouse take the A61 on the peripherique and follow directions to Carcassonne, Barcelona and FOIX PEAGE (not Foix RN 20). Once on the A61, after passing the pèage, look for the A66 fork in the direction of Andorra. At the next péage, the road joins the N20 in the direction of Foix. Exit at junction 6 towards Mirepoix and Lavelanet. Join the D119 in the direction of Mirepoix (first exit of roundabout on right), continue through Les Pujols, Rieucros, Coutens and Besset before arriving at Mirepoix. Go straight on at the first roundabout on the outskirts of the town. At the second roundabout, turn right onto the D625 towards Lavelanet.

From Carcassonne follow the D119 in the direction of Mirepoix. Continue through Montréal and Fanjeaux towards Mirepoix. After crossing the bridge, follow signs “toutes directions”. At second set of traffic lights, turn left and then straight on at the roundabout onto the D625 towards Lavelanet.

Pass through the village of La Bastide de Bousignac, before arriving at Aigues - Vives (approx. 8 minutes). When passing the sign announcing Aigues - Vives, slow down and indicate left because the left turn to Léran is hidden behind some buildings on the left hand side of the road. This is the first and only sign there is for Léran. The road (D28) will take you directly to the village, about 4 minutes drive.
After passing the church, turn right into cours St Jacques. The mairie/school is on the left. Le Castelou is the next building on the left, number 8 Cours St Jacques, just over the little crossroads. The house is pale yellow with white outlines around the windows.
