The cottage is clean, bright and tastefully furnished with two bedrooms and a bathroom and WC upstairs and a large kitchen dining room downstairs. There is seating around the fireplace which has a log burning fire. In addition there is a separate lounge or snug which still has the old bread oven in the wall. This room is furnished with a four seater sofa. .There is no downstairs loo. Outside there is a terrace with seating for six and a BBQ. The cottage is on a hillside setting with views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside, famous for the Gaillac vineyards. It is set away from other houses, villages and towns and so has a get away from it all feel. A car is essential. There is no public transport. The seclusion means no noise and no nightlife.

Check out the website for the Gresigne Forest which is right next to the cottage. It is a large (3600 hectares) unspoilt oak Forest with deer wild boar and numerous other flora and fauna, an absolute haven for birds and a great venue for ornithologists.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

Set just above the local village, giving the property a totally rural feel being on the edge of the Gresigne Forest north of Gaillac.

Castelnau de Montmiral

Renowned for its vineyards, medieval villages such as Cordes, Puycelci, and Castelnau, this area of the Tarn department is one of the most rural and unspoilt parts of France. With a short drive however you can be in the World Heritage site of Albi. Further afield is Toulouse itself, a university town with a buzzy atmosphere and cafe culture on its pedestrianised streets and squares. Great shopping with many individual clothes and shoe shops.
