Castelnau de Montmiral
The house is located in a particularly pretty and unspoilt part of south west France. This is the area of Bastide towns such as Cordes sur Ciel and Carcassonne, fortified hill towns rising up into the sky with enchanting twisting streets and covered market places. There are fields of grapes, sunflowers, and cattle. The countryside rolls gently up to the Forêt de la Grésigne, the largest oak forest in Europe.
The property is just a few minutes drive from the pretty town of Castelnau de Montmiral with a boulangerie, small shops, pharmacy, café, post office and excellent restaurant. The market town and wine centre of Gaillac is about ten minutes away with shops, restaurants and cafés. The cultural centres of Albi and Toulouse are within 45 minutes.
Kayaking down the Gorges, walking the national walking tracks, horse riding, cycling or swimming, relaxing by the pool or simply driving around this beautiful countryside exploring towns and villages that have hardly changed in centuries - it's all here, waiting for you to enjoy.
The Aveyron Gorges are about half an hour's drive away, through beautiful scenery, and even novices will enjoy the not-too-demanding pleasures of kayaking or canoeing down the river, to be picked up and driven back to your car by special bus.
Nearby is the Vere Gresigne centre, with its boating/pedaloe lake, swimming lake (with water-slide and life-guard), tennis courts, crazy golf, boules, bar and ice-cream parlour.
Walking and cycling are a favourite activity among locals and holiday-makers alike, and there are national walking trails on the doorstep. Local walking groups (French and English) will be pleased to welcome real enthusiasts!
The local area abounds in bird life, and bird watchers are rarely disappointed. There are scores of vineyards in and around Gaillac, 22 of them Apellation Controle; wine tasting and sampling is a must!
