Riverside holiday apartment in the beautiful department of Aveyron. Situated on the edge of the medieval village of Entraygues Sur Truyere.
The Gite has a through diner, living room/kitchen area with beamed ceiling. There is a sofa, TV, DVD player, table and chairs and book case of books and DVDs (English and French). Patio doors open onto the sun terrace over looking the river.
The well equiped kitchen has a microwave, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster, gas cooker, grill and hob and many cupboards.
The bedroom has a double bed, built in double wardrobe, ironing board, iron, safe, bedside lamps and tables. It also has a beamed ceiling and window over looking the terrace. Bed linen is included.
Out of the bedroom is a seperate WC and a bathroom, consisting of a shower and wash basin. Bath sheets, hand towels and beach towels are provided.
The terrace has two sun loungers, BBQ, and a patio set with sun brolly.
Up the steps from the terrace is a private pool, where there are more sun loungers and a swing seat. The pool is spring water fed.
There is a large private garden next to the river Truyere with views of the medieval gothic bridge and two sun loungers beneath the Walnut tree. Great for reading and relaxing with a glass of wine or for fishing. The garden also has fruit trees and a pigeonier.
Opposite the gite is off road private parking and there is a garage available for use by our guests.
The apartment is road side so there is some road noise, but this is reduced by it being above road level and having double glazing.
Entraygues is just a short walk over the medieval bridge and has many shops, restaurants, bars, bakers, butchers, cinema, a bank and a winery.
The village and surrounding area are great for walking. The roads are excellent for biking (Motor or Pedal).
There is a wide variety of wild life, our guests have seen king fishers, herons, buzzards, deer, coypu and lots of fish while sitting by the river.
There are lots of activities including canoeing, fishing, horse riding and cycling to be done in and around the village.
Vue Du Pont is ideal for two but there are zed beds available for two more.

The Midi-Pyrénées region
The beautiful Aveyron in the South west is one of France's best kept secrets.
It has more of the plus beau villages than any other department of france.
The world famous Millau viaduct is the gate way to the Med from Aveyron.
There are countless historic chateaus and castles available to visit.
The department is full of hills and valleys. Beautiful lakes and rivers including the rivers Lot and Truyere.
The area is rich in history, such as the wild boy of Aveyron, the knights Templer and the Resistance.
The people are friendly and the food is excellent.
Roquefort and Aligot are some of the local delicasies.
The wine isn't bad either.
Entraygues has many festivals through out the year including weekly farmers markets.
There are several excellent restaurants in the village and many near by for those who want to travel a little further. All serve locally sourced and seasonal food and wine.
For those who don't want to travel, once they have arrived, the village has all the amenities needed.

"Lovely view, pleasant hosts but noisy road."
This is a review of two halves. The host, Caroline was welcoming, generous (bottle of wine and milk in the fridge) and, after the initial greeting left us to our own devices. The area is delightful an… More
Thank you for your review. Carolyn always tries to be helpful. We continually review our pricing for our self catering gite with it's own terrace, private swimming pool, off road parking, private garden and the free use of a garage. Perhaps if we did not include the washing machine, iron, hair dryer, WiFi, DVD player, English and French DVDs, English and French books, English TV, toiletries, safe, six sun loungers and cushions inclusive in the price we could charge less initially, but as some of our guests fly these extras are welcome. We decided not to over develop or commercialise the riverside garden as a lot of our guests like to relax under the walnut tree, either on the chairs or sun loungers, and let the world go by. Some sit on the river bank and fish. There are apple and cherry trees for shade and in the pigeonier is a croquet set for those feeling a little more energetic. The private terrace has furniture for dining, furniture for lounging as well as two sun loungers, a parasol, planters and two BBQ's. Any more would make it too crowded. The road into our medieval village is the D920, it is a mixture of single track and passing places. The 14th century bridge is one way for preservation purposes. Entraygues is a working village, primarily agriculture and secondary tourism. It has bars, restaurants, shops, bakers, butchers, a bank, a cinema and a vets, but still retains it's medieval character. We are on the edge of the village, in other gites a car would be needed to go into Entraygues, where as we just walk over the gothic bridge and back again. we thank you for your positive comments left in our visitors book.
Acceptez de différer. Paul and Carolyn chez Vue du Pont.

We have stayed at Vue du Pont 2 summers in a row, we love it so much. Owners Paul & Carolyn are very pleasant, helpful, yet unobtrusive people, staying next door if you need anything. Entraygues is a … More
Thanks for your glowing review, we do try our best to please and getting such praise does make it worthwhile.
We will gladly welcome you back and hope to share a glass or two of wine on the terrace, by the river or by the pool or all three.
