The La Vele gite is private, well equipped and spacious enough for an extended family, or two families sharing – up to 10 people. It will also appeal to the smaller family or group, including couples, who appreciate lots of space when on holiday.

On the Ground Floor of this comfortable accommodation there is a South facing private access, a large lounge area with an optional additional dining area, a secondary lounge, a large kitchen/dining area, and a shower room/toilet etc. On the First Floor there are four large bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The one-hectare plot [2.4 acres] contains the old converted barn building, swimming pool, and pigeonnier. The rest of the plot is a simple, but imaginatively designed garden. Predominantly grass, ideal for childrens games, with high laurel hedges to offer welcome shade during the summer months, the garden contains a variety of fruit and nut trees.

The pool, patio and secluded poolside barbecue area - alfresco eating for up to 10 people [some 280 sq mtrs of attractive patterned paving] is totally fenced to meet the latest requirements of the French Government, with two ‘childproof’ access gates. The 12m x 6m pool is kept spotlessly clean by means of a ‘robot’ pool cleaner and an efficient filtration system. Unlike most pools it has both a seven foot deep-end suitable for diving, without the danger of a split head, and a shallow end with corner steps, enthusiastically enjoyed by ‘little ones’ of all ages, and also the elderly or inferm..

A feature of the Tarn area, the pigeonnier [or dovecote], houses a selection of inflatables, cushions, loungers and parasols etc., with the pool filtration and cleaning system securely hidden under the floor.

Surrounded on three sides by fields, vineyards and small copses, the only passing traffic to disturb La Vele visitors will be the occasional local farmer examining his current crop. Peace, privacy and tranquility are therefore guaranteed.

Your stay at La Vele can actually be all things to all people! Whether elderly or young, active or sedentary, lovers of the Arts or rock music enthusiasts, depending on the time of year there will be something for everyone to enjoy, either on-site or within a short drive of Le Verdier.

"Truly Wonderful"

This gite was wonderful. Well equipped, spacious, very clean. Pool was beautiful and very private. Eric and Sally wonderful hosts. Area outstanding with plenty going on. Gaillac has all you need but recommend Castlenau and St Antonin. Great holiday, highly recommended.
