Popular with ambassadors and diplomats on holiday, La Bomba is a fabulous, classic rustic-chic French farmhouse in the heart of Languedoc countryside, about an hour from Toulouse airport.
The house is divided into three sections. At the west end
is the Grand Salon, which was converted from a grenier (grain barn) and covers two floors. Next is the original central section (the Wellington Wing), which includes the kitchen, dining room, den and three bedrooms. Finally there is the east end (the Soult Wing), which includes the library and bedrooms four to six.
Both the Wellington and Soult wings have their own staircase, making them perfect for a family each. These wings were named in 2014, to mark the 200th anniversary of the armistice to end the Peninsular War, after the two signatories of the agreement, the Duke of Wellington and his adversary in the Napoleonic Wars, Marshal Jean-de-Dieu Soult.
