"Tranquility and beauty in the French countryside"

After driving through beautiful countryside you arrive at the villa set in rolling hills, fields and forest. The stone villa is very spacious and comfortable. It's well equipped, satellite tv, dvd and cd players. A good selection of books and dvds. The kitchen is well equipped if you enjoy cooking the wonderful French produce, and the beds are comfortable. Very light and roomy, the villa has lovely views all round.
You can sit on the front terrace and have breakfast and watch the buzzards hunting over the fields. A few feet away birds sit in the hedgerow and sing their hearts out. In the garden the lavender attracts a variety of bees and butterflies, great to watch, they never bother you, their only interest is in nectar. There are places to sit around the villa whether you like sunshine or shade.
The pool has the sun on it all the time, we had 2 weeks of unbroken sunshine and the pool was warm, no shocks! Great for swimming or just lazing, floating around soaking up the sun. Some lovely walks nearby. La Fouillade is just up the road, 5 mins by car. There's a café and Bistro where you can have a light lunch if you don't want to go far. A good supermarket also. A little further is Najac, a beautiful mediaeval town. To the south, Albi is about an hour away via Cordes-sur-Ciel. To the north the lovely town of Villefranche de Rouergues, 40mins. Both highly recommended. A few times we got ready with the intention of exploring the area, but it was just so comfortable at the villa, we ended up lazing around the pool!
We went for peace and quiet and were well rewarded, we will definitely go again.

"A delightful cottage in a stunning location"

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely, modern, clean and sunny cottage. Everything was perfect when we arrived and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. My family really enjoyed the beautiful location and we got full use out of the pool. Local visits to the towns and villages were a delight and the countryside is so unspoilt. We will definitely go back, there is much more to see and do.
