Métairie d'en Bor - 11230 PUIVERT - FRANCE.
You will need around 1h30 to drive from Toulouse or Perpignan to En Bor, 1h from Carcassonne.
Coming from the North or the West, from Toulouse, take roadway A61 towards Montpellier, then A66 (towards Foix) up to Pamiers. At Pamiers, take the exit in direction of Mirepoix (D119). In Mirepoix follow the Lavelanet direction (D625), then at La Bastide de Bousignac, take a left on D7 to Chalabre, where you will turn left, following the sign to Puivert.
Coming from the North or the East and going through Carcassonne, the best way is to follow the direction to Limoux/Quillan (D118 then D211), up to Quillan, where you'll follow the direction to Puivert / plateau de Sault (D117) up to Puivert. You can also turn towards Chalabre in Limoux and join the route described above.
Once in Puivert, and driving on D117, you should follow the indication to St Jean de Paracol by D121 (the métairie is indicated at the crossroads). You will drive past the cimetery, then, approximately 500 m further, you will see the métairie d'en Bor indicated on a very small road leaving the main one on the right in the middle of a left turn.
Good luck, and, most of all, remember that the GPS is your friend :)
For our friends from Great Britain, there are two weekly Ryanair flights between Carcassonne and either London or Liverpool and also flights to Glasgow.
For small shopping:

You'll be in Foix, Pamiers or Carcassonne with one hour of driving, too far away for casual shopping, but Carcassonne is most definitely worth a visit.
