We retired to France in 2003 and converted two barns. One for us to live in and one for visitors to stay. We know a lot about the area and are very willing to share our knowledge if you wish to use it.

|Why this location?||The cottage is two miles from our well serviced local village, close to the UNESCO site of Albi surrounded by vineyards where you can discover the Gaillac wines set in magnificent landscapes featuring ancient medieval villages in an idyllic and peaceful setting.|
|Unique benefits of property||The cottage adjoins our home and provides a comfortable well equipped place to stay with your own pool, two areas in which to sit and enjoy the sunshine and a large garden which you are welcome to explore.|
We provide a booklet in the Gite full of information about the area, restaurants, shopping and activities you can read at your leisure. I can send you this booklet before you come if you request it.
Our English friends own a local vineyard and are very happy to give tours of the vineyard and tasting sessions.
Spacious, clean and well appointed accommodation, as described, for up to 6 people. Owners living next door very helpful. Many interesting bastide villages to visit and the countryside in the Aveyron is beautiful. Being set almost in the centre of the Gaillac wine region set the scene for a relaxed holiday. Toulouse, Rodez and Albi within easy reach.
What a lovely home from home for a week in this part of France.
Even before we arrived Peter and Shelagh were amazingly helpful with directions and had the tv set up for us to watch the world cup in arrival!
Fabulous pool to relax in and wonderful seating areas at front and back of the house.
Everything you could have needed was provided in the house, and bed was wonderfully comfortable.
Beautiful area too. Basic but great amenities in the village with a friendly local bar.
Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit this area.
