The house

This beautifully restored 100 year old farmhouse is located in a quiet hamlet and until recently used exclusively by the owners family. Steps from a spacious courtyard and garden lead up to a terrace large enough for 8 to dine. The house offers spacious accommodation on two floors.

Entrance is to the very large and comfortable living and dining area with a fireplace at each end. There is a fully fitted kitchen with double patio doors leading out to the large terrace that is ideal for outdoor meals for up to 8 people. On this floor too are the large master bedroom,and a good sized twin bedroom. These two rooms are linked by a Jack & Jill en suite bathroom effectively giving each bedroom an en suite bathroom with shower, hand basin and granite worktop with plenty of cupboard space. There is a separate w.c. with a hand basin and bidet.

Stairs to the upper floor give access to a third twin bedded room, a huge attic bedroom with twin beds and easy chairs and a Pembroke table and this floor has its own large shower room, hand basin and bidet, a separate WC,

There is a large private garden with fruit trees available for picking in season and a private 10 x 5 metre pool with an electrically operated telescopic cover and in one corner a trampoline.
Visitors comments include the following:

Peaceful setting in a tiny hamlet near Naucelle about 40 minutes from Albi. Everything you need for a family holiday including a lovely pool, garden, terrace and very large rooms throughout. Set in lovely rolling countryside close to the River Viaur and an easy scenic drive to medieval villages such as Najac, Sauveterre de Rouergue and Villefranche. We found our perfect French retreat in La Redondie.JB

We love the house and the wonderful views from the swimming pool over rolling farmland dotted with little households. Nothing has beenforgotten - excellent laundry facilities, a well eqipped kitchen, recipe books galore - everything in good condition. PW

Further remarks

The property is the perfect place for extended families or families sharing - due to its layout it allows larger groups to be together but also to have their own private space in the main house. The house has been a private family home and has been lovingly renovated by the present owners who have now decided to rent their property.
The large private swimming pool has an electrically operated retractable cover which means you can swim whatever the weather and the pool can be completely secured when you do not want to use it making it ultra safe for families with small children.

'Our second visit was as happy and successful as the first. This delightful house proved a wonderful base; spacious comfortable, homely. Plenty of all the creature comforts such as an endless supply of hot water - to say nothing of the delights of the pool! '

Perfect home from home with everything we needed. JB August 2017

Visited in July 2018

Wij verbleven in La Redondie in juli met zijn zevenen. Het huis is hiervoor zeker groot genoeg.
Toen we pas aankwamen was het toch even schrikken in het huisje. De rondleiding gebeurde vlugvlug. Overal stonden apparaten op de grond te tikken tegen de muizen. Het huis rook muf, overal stond rommel en het huis gaf geen propere indruk. Op dat moment voelden we ons niet erg goed bij onze keuze. Sommige kinderen vond het huis zelfs akelig.
Tien dagen later hadden we de keuken een serieuze beurt gegeven, het huis super goed verlucht en gezien dat er geen sprake was van ongedierte (dat de apparaatjes dus hun werk deden). Het was leuker geweest als we dat vooraf hadden geweten, dan hadden we van de eerste dagen meer kunnen genieten. De rommel moesten we er wel blijven bij nemen. Er staat echt veel te veel in dat huis. Het leek wel of alle gasten er vanalles achterlaten dat gewoon blijft liggen. Een degelijke opruiming zou het huis goeddoen.
Dit alles klinkt minder positief maar eens je een voet buitenzet verandert alles en kom je in het paradijs terecht. De tuin is enorm en het zwembad ook. We hebben ontbeten in de boomgaard. Je hebt een ongelofelijk uitzicht met elke avond een zonsondergang. Het is er ongelofelijk rustig maar je bent dan ook wel een 10 minuten autorit van elke voorziening verwijderd. Een wagen heb je hier echt wel nodig. We hadden in onze periode erg veel last van vliegen. Dat kan je verwachten in een landelijke omgeving maar soms werd het zo gortig dat we niet meer buiten konden eten. Dat was jammer.
Toeristische plaatsjes zijn aanwezig maar door de kleinere wegen altijd verder weg dan je denkt.
Juli is een aan te raden periode. In de heuvels gaat de zon vroeg onder en zo kan je toch nog van lange dagen genieten.
De eigenares stuurde na afloop een cheque om de waarborg terug te betalen. Dat is fijn maar het innen van zo'n cheque koste ons wel zo'n €23 aan bankkosten.
Gemengde gevoelens al bij al maar toch zeker een fijne vakantie.

Het is een prachtig huis en het ligt op een heerlijke plek. Er is een prima zwembad en de inrichting van het huis is zeer compleet.
