Barn Rental

The barn is located in a hamlet in the heart of the Aveyron (Dept 12) in South-West France. Here you

can experience the peace and tranquillity of this stunningly beautiful and unspoiled region of France

at your leisure. No traffic jams, no crowds, just cows, panoramic views, good food and a warm

welcome!

The barn has been converted from a derelict barn into a spacious and comfortable second home.

It will sleep 6 people comfortably in 3 double bedrooms, with a sofa bed on the mezzanine for

another one individual—or 2 close friends.

One bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. There is a second bathroom with a bath/shower. There is

also a separate toilet and a shower cum toilet on the first floor.

The barn, built for cows, is typical to this area of France. It has been renovated and equipped to

make it comfortable and everything inside has been carefully chosen to make your stay as stress free

as possible. Many of the original features have been retained and the new alterations carried out to

complement and enhance the original character of the barn. It is spacious and easily maintained.

The hamlet is on one of the branches of the Route de Santiago de Compostela. In fact, this is a very

popular area for both long and short walks.

It is within easy reach of the River Lot, to some amazing caves and to many Bastide towns ( read

about them on Wikipedia)

A service charge of €75 to cover for the cost of cleaning and laundering is payable by each party. For

those who wish to stay for 2 weeks an optional change of bed linen is offered for an extra €20.

we will do our best to accommodate you even if cleaning is still in progress) . Yo are asked to vacate

AVEYRON ATTRACTIONS & THINGS TO DO.

No matter what your pleasure you will find somthing to keep you occupied in this beautiful and diverse area of France; whether it be relaxing in the sun, discovering the many historical sites, visiting the markets or extreme sports!

For all general information visit: http://www.tourisme-aveyron.com

FOR YOUR CHILDREN.... because happy children make happy holidays!

In the heart of the Aveyron not far from the truely magnificent Millau Bridge, designed by the French structural engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architect Norman Foster, it is the tallest bridge in the world and this fact alone is generally a lure for your children, as is 'Micropolis - cité des insects' a fascinating, fun and educational day out for all the family no matter the age. Visit the web site for all information at:

http://www.micropolis-aveyron.com/

There are various places to take your children swimming, most communes have public swimming pools and everyone is welcome. (fees vary from place to place but none are expensive) To find out where they all are you can visit:

http://piscinemunicipale.net/departement/aveyron-12.html

or ask us and we will direct you to all those we know!

There are also what is known as 'Plan d'Eaux' which are lakes where swimming and watersports are permitted, the biggest (not just in the Department of the Aveyron but in the whole of the Midi-Pyrenees Region) and by far the most popular of these is 'Le lac de Pareloup' near Salles Curan in the south Aveyron, the journey takes about an hour but is well worth it; take a picnic and make the day worthwhile....

If it is extreme sports that you are looking for (lots of grown ups enjoy this too!!), again there is a vast array of activities designed for those of a physically active nature ranging from kayaking on the Lot River or Climbing in the Gorges du Tarn to Paintballing and Accrobranching and much, much more.... There are many websites detailing these activites including the following :

http://www.variation82.eu/

http://www.tourisme-aveyron.com/fr/decouvrir/sport-plein-air.php

www.dkpaintball.com

Last but not least (and I have by no means covered everything here) I would like to mention the small town of Clairvaux, just a 20 minute drive from our holiday home, which hosts such a wealth of activities suitable for children of all ages you will be spoilt for choice!

http://www.lepetitmoutard.be/activites-enfants_39/clairvaux-d-aveyron_34756/enfant.asp

Also at Clairvaux is a wonderful and very resonable family restaurant where a menu full of regional speciialities as well as meals designed for the less discerning palettes are catered for throughout the summer months.... We particularly enjoy the freindly atmosphere and the fact that children who are bored with the whole 'eating thing' are encouraged to wander about with the many different animals and birds that are kept there for just this purpose!

This restaurant is popular so it's not advisable to just turn up, there is no website but the phone number for reservations is 0565 72 71 40, if your French is not up to telephone conversations please ask and we will gladly help.

Cransac

Cransac is famous throughout France for its Thermal station ( http://www.cransac.fr/thermalisme.html ), in the 1800's thousands of peaople visited the health spa each year due to the reputed healing properties of the water, including royalty!!

Today, the spa offers many treatments and is still frequented by clients the length and breadth of the country.

http://www.cransac.fr/thermalisme.html

Aubin, once a thriving market town boasting over 40'000 inhabitants, is now a sleepy French village with just 4'000 people residing, most having left when the coal mines were closed in the 60's. The old town, where you will find a good restaurant (see link below) still attracts many visitors each summer and the Mining Museum (opposite 'Le Marie' is busy from May until October.
