Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A very comfortable home from home, this house is more than a gite. The house, set in a mature garden with wonderful views has it's own private swimming pool.
The location allows you to feel away from it all and yet have easy access to the wealth of activities, history, places of interest. The provision of internet and i-pod docking system means you can feel at home and stay in touch - if you really have to.
This comfortable house is a wonderful base for families and groups alike having an en-suite per bedroom. In the high summer the pool is just what's required for a chill out holiday, but in the cooler months the area is popular with walkers, cyclists and historians

The remaining bedrooms, both with ensuit facilities are on the first floor. The interior is to a standard higher than holiday homes generally as La Barabie is a home over the winter.

The Midi-Pyrénées region
The area is renowned for the Medieval towns steeped in history which still enjoy a quiet sophistication, together with friendly local people who have a warmth to match their lovely countryside.
Medieval villages, Bastide towns, Chateaux, Abbeys, Churches and magnificent natural sites of outstanding beauty; whether it be wooded valleys or the meandering River Aveyron with its dramatic gorges.
A number of local villages and towns have interesting and colourful markets. (NB: Be sure not to miss the local market in St Antonin held on Sunday mornings and Villefranche de Rouergue on Thursdays).
The village of Parisot (5 mins by car) has bar, restaurant, small store for daily provisions & bakery... together with Parisot Lake : a lovely setting for walking, open~air restaurant & child activities (also a large firework display and music on the first weekend of August).
The medieval market towns of Villefranche de Rouergue just 20 mins away, Caylus (15 mins), St. Antonin (25 mins) for bars, restaurants, night markets & for sporting activities (canoeing, horse riding, rock climbing, etc.) Other delightful medieval villages/towns nearby with bars, restaurants, speciality shops and night markets.
Horse riding, canoeing, fishing, bird watching, rail trips, rock climbing, wine tasting, museums, pot-holing, tennis and of course walking. Golf is available at Albi (18-hole delightful course), where there is also a water-park for children. An afternoon's excursion by canoe through the Aveyron Gorge is considered a 'must' by nearly all guests.

"Great place to chill out and relax!"
Great place for R&R. Great host - very knowledgeable and helpful. Can't fault the food or wine! Plenty of it too! Lovely setting and pool area. Nice strolls down to the lake. I would definitely recommend La Barabie. Will definitely be back!
Delighted you enjoyed your stay, as you say the host is appreciated by everyone. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay.

"Delightful weekend in late Summer sun"
We arived for a family wedding late on aThursday night to be met by the genial host with a slection of charcuterie, fresh bread and some great local wines. The weekend got better thereafter. The house itself is in great shape with x4 nicely proportioned en-suite rooms. All of the ensuites were in good conition and recently refubished. The living areas both inside and outside the house ae great for socialising and the pool area captures the sun from early morning until late at night. Great views over the local countryside and only a 15-20 minute walk back into Parisot or to the local lake complex (bar/restaurant/bike hire). The house is one of 4 in a small hamlet and is about an hours drive from either of the main airports in the area. The owner of the property was on call to help support any of our activities for the long weekend and delivered some outstanding meals based on locally sourced raw ingredients. All in all a great place for a couple of famillies or a group of friends to wile away a summer vacation. The accommodation would also be a great retreat for a festive break.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review; you certainly seem to have made the best of your stay in this lovely area. The house is a great base from which to explore either by car or by bike.

"Excellent facilities & wonderful pool!"
We've previously found it difficult to get a house where all four bedrooms are well proportioned & all have en-suite, so nobody feels like they drew the short straw. La Barabie has it all in this respect.
A well equipped kitchen, big garden with a generously sized pool, BBQ & superb views top the property off.
A pleasant 20 minute walk down pretty country lanes takes you to the lake or village, so easy access to bars & restaurants. Plenty more choice of picturesque villages, restaurants & markets nearby if you do want to explore in the car.
This property represents good value for money & I would be inclined to say the pictures don't do justice for it's beauty & charm.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review La Barabie, very glad you had such a great time. If you have any photos you feel reflect this lovely old house please feel free to send them to me, I'd love to include them for others to see.

We stayed here for a week on full board while doing a walking holiday in the area. The hospitality was first class and the meals were wonderful. I think we put on weight in spite of walking 22km each … More
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at La Barabie, delighted you had such a lovely time. We look forward to welcoming you back before too long.
