The house

This beautifully designed and fitted out gite is compact but surprisingly roomy to live in. The spec on the property is very high and each area flows easily into the next providing ideal accommodation for a couple . The property consists of a private patio looking out onto a large garden and fields, an open plan kitchen/lounge, a spacious shower room and a romantic master bedroom with a view straight out to the fields and beyond. The property is all on one level. The grounds and laundry area are shared by a second gite, but the two gites are totally independent.
The property is really out in the countryside and you are immediately dropped into the quiet of rural France. The property is deliberately low tech in that there is no TV, no Internet - but of course if you have 3G mobile access you can still be in touch if you have to!

There is a large range of restaurants within 20 minutes travel time. These range from simple local establishments to a reknown Michelin 1 star in Sauveterre de Rouergue. There is also an excellent restaurant in Naucelle - L'Aromatique but you do need to make an early reservation as it is often fully booked weeks in advance. We offer a drop off and pick up service (for a small cover fee)if you prefer to enjoy the delights of the local wines without having to worry about driving to the restaurants.

Further remarks

If you don’t know the area it is well worth the effort to discover. If you have been already - then it speaks for itself. Ripe for tourism but as yet unspoilt, our visitors are amazed at how much there is to do and see here - and yet you remain in a very traditional unique area of rural France.
We offer a number of additional services which can help to make your stay that bit easier. You can select a first shop service so that food can be ready waiting for you in the gite, order a welcome meal so there is no worry for the first evening, have a night off cooking by ordering the Table d’Hote, book a babysitter to go off and enjoy that Michelin Meal. (There are small charges to cover costs of these additional services to be paid locally).

Wij hebben hier een heelrijke vakantie gehad! Mijn partner en ik en onze hond Louie hebben genoten van de fantatische afgelegen ligging van dit huisje. Wat overigens een prachtig uitzicht heeft. Het huisje is voorzien van alles wat je nodig hebt en heeft een schattige landelijke inrichting. De badkamer en douche zijn heel fijn. We hebben heel veel wandelingen gemaakt in de prachtige omgeving (naar de rivier is een aanrader), velen hele leuke avondmarkten bezocht, paardgereden, en uitstapjes gemaakt. Het stadje Albi is heel erg leuk om te bezoeken, ze hebben ook een fijn museum met het werk van Toulouse-Lautrec. Er is veel te beleven in de buurt, er zijn atractieparken, zwembaden en veel outdoor-activiteiten. De avondmarkten zijn er ook heel veel in de zomer. Julie de gastvrouw is heel behulpzaam en weet alles van de omgeving dus schroom niet om haar om tips te vragen. Je hebt wel echt een auto nodig. Ik zou dit huisje zeker aanraden!

Huisje is prima, hele fijne douche, keuken goed uitgerust. Meubilair binnen zou iets beter kunnen. Er staat binnen een bank die erg is doorgezakt. Omgeving om het huisje is erg mooi, je hebt vanuit het huisje een prachtig uitzicht over de landerijen. Je hebt echt heel veel privacy. Enige nadeel van het landelijk verblijf is dat er muizen rondlopen. De gastvrouw is een zeer hartelijke, vriendelijke vrouw. Je voelt je echt welkom. Kortom als je van de rust en privacy houdt, is dit een prima locatie.
