The Midi Pyrenees/Aveyron is located in the South West of France and includes spectacular countryside, the Pyrenean mountains, rivers and gorges, historical sites including many Bastides (walled and fortified towns), medieval villages, museums and art galleries.
There are outstanding leisure opportunities, including walking riding, climbing, mountain biking, kayak and canoe set in wonderful natural surroundings. The area benefits from a vibrant community spirit with a fantastic range of markets, fetes and other celebrations.
The immediate area provides a huge variety of activities, sites of natural beauty and interest. The medieval village of Najac with its imposing hill top chateau is one of the “Plus beaux villages de France” noted as places of special beauty and culture.
For families, artists, walkers and trekkers and those wishing to get back to nature the area is a delight. If you want to explore the villages; go mountain biking, family kayaking, horse riding or swimming - all facilities are available within a very short distance. There is a very good swimming pool 5 minutes from the farm. Alternatively the surrounding area provides a variety of safe river swimming locations.
Najac, a very short car ride from the farm, offers a range of shops for food, local crafts and gifts and has excellent dining options from cafes and gourmet restaurants to the popular pizza restaurant. The surrounding area and the larger town of Villefranche de Rouergue (20 minutes) and many of the smaller villages offer even more enticing choices.
