Le Douluch is a converted seventeenth century stone barn with metre thick walls and exposed beams situated in a quiet spot overlooking the village of Le Monastere. It is located in the Aveyron, a rural area of the Midi Pyrenees region close to the village of Estaing, one of Frances “Beau villages”, in a largely rural area in the southwest of France. The area is not part of the usual tourist trail which is one of its great attractions to the independent traveller and those who want to experience real French life. While it is remote enough for a lazy holiday or for a restful break on a longer trip, it also offers many sights and activities.

Le Douluch sits high on the shoulder of a ridge and enjoys spectacular views into the adjoining valley. On clear days, you can see as far as Rodez, the departmental capital nearly 40 kms away. The barn is surrounded by fields and woodlands, and is located on a quiet country lane, making it the perfect tranquil setting for your holiday. The barn is comfortable, fully furnished and equipped with electric convector heaters in every room.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

The Aveyron is a department of the Midi-Pyrenees region. It is famous for having more of the Beau villages of France than any other department. The climate in these deep river valleys is mediterranian. Summers are hot and the autumn is balmy with glorious colours in evidence everywhere. The region is rich in historical culture with many chateaux and bastides.


Estaing is famous for its chateau and its owner the ex French president Giscard d'Estaing. The village is famous for its medieval fairs that happen each June and September. The river Lot flows through the village and because of its proximity to the route Compostella there are always walkers travelling the GR65 and crossing the ancient bridge.
