Spring, summer and autumn in South West France - come and stay at 'Chez Mackenzie' our luxury cottage in the depths of the French countryside an ideal spot for your vacation to relax and explore this hidden part of France.
Ideal for 2 to 4 people, our recently restored 2-storey vacation cottage and swimming pool is situated in a small hamlet in the depths of the French countryside about 10 minutes drive from the pretty town of St.Antonin-Noble-Val and the beautiful little village of Penne du Tarn.
Downstairs is an open plan kitchen, dining area and living room, light and airy with the 3 french windows giving access to the swimming pool, the front courtyard and the ‘inside/outside’ room.
The living room is open plan and includes the kitchen. There are also two 'Inside-Outside' rooms where you can enjoy the outdoors in a cooler environment out of the sun!
Upstairs are 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. Bedroom 1 has 2 single beds (which could be pushed together for an extra large double). Bedroom 2 has a large double bed and french windows that open onto the large upstairs balcony which overlooks the garden and swimming pool areas (great for star gazing at night). I decided on a white and black décor for the bedrooms - light, modern and fun to sleep in!
There is one bathroom that has a shower, toilet and wash basin.
For cooler nights at the beginning and end of the season, there is a very efficient wood burning stove that heats the very well insulated house.
The pool, the sundeck, the outdoor 'rooms' - for swimming, relaxing , reading, barbecue, eating, playing - or whatever - you are on holiday!
The swimming pool is 4m x 8m with wide shallow Roman steps which are ideal for young children and less sporty types who feel toe dipping is enough and sun worshipping on one of the chic black loungers is more to their liking. Yes, the sun deck is expansive and the parasols are on wheels, so you can move around and follow the sun or find some shade.
Lots of places on the River Aveyron at St.Antonin-Noble-Val to rent kayaks for half or full day.
We have 4 bikes to use here at Chez Mackenzie!
There are many marked footpaths for walking in our area of St.Antonin-noble-val/Penne/Cordes/Vaour - departments 81(Tarn) and 82 (Tarn-et-Garonne). We have maps and guides here at the house and know quite a few of the tracks if you need any advice. Chez Mackenzie, is in a small hamlet - Fabre de La Grange - which is on a marked footpath a 'GR du Pays' between Cordes and Penne, so lots to explore!
