Welcome pack on arrival

The Midi-Pyrénées region

Known for its green rolling landscape and rivers flowing through spectacular gorges, the area will suit anyone who loves walking, cycling, fishing, horseriding and nature in general. There are fortified villages (bastides) and Cathar castles; bustling markets and local fetes or just simply relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

For art lovers, visit Albi and the Toulouse Lautrec Museum.

Moissac - Abbaye St Pierre and jazz festival in July, classical concerts in July and August.

Cahors - Blues Festival in July

Millau - take a trip across the stunning Millau bridge or visit the Roquefort caves.

Saint Projet

Situated in the secluded hamlet of Mas De Guinet, La Petite Grange is the perfect place for exploring the beautful unspoilt countryside.

Just a short cycle along gently winding lanes is St Projet which is home to a 13th Century chateau which boasts quite a story! The village hosts some lively fetes in the summer - the Giant Omelette and Marché Gourmand take place in July and August. Not to be outdone, nearby Parisot has the Giant Paella evening and impressive fireworks.

The rivers Lot and Aveyron are only half an hour's drive away, where canoes can be hired. There are several beautiful villages within easy reach. Our local restaurant is 5 minutes drive and the nearest supermarket is a 15 minute drive.

The local markets are not to be missed - St Antonin has a very lively market on Sunday mornings; Villefranche de Rouergue's market is on Thursday mornings but our favourite is Limogne on Sunday morning which is a quieter farmer's market.

The bastide village of Cordes-sur-Ciel is well worth a visit - on the way you drive through some of the Gaillac wine area, so why not stop at one of the vineyards for a 'degustation'. Try picturesque Najac with its Cathar castle, or St Cirq Lapopie overlooking the river Lot.

Our favourite restaurant, La Grange du Cros, has a lovely ambience and is very popular - don't forget to book!

"great if you want a bit of piece and quiet"

My girlfriend and I stayed at Graham and Marion's cottage just outside Saint Projet for a week in early August, the cottage itself exceeded expectations with a clean bathroom, fully kitted kitchen and a gorgous loft bedroom with exposed rafters and a good finish.

The cottage also had wifi internet and UK sky (which was handy considering the Olympics were on) and a large swimming pool in the garden for cooling off in the hot afternoons.

The hosts are lovely and make sure the kitchen is stocked with the essentials, tea, coffee, salt pepper, oil, herbs, milk on arrival and are there for recommendations.
Our favorite local place was Saint Cirq Lapopie however the Milau viaduct and Galliac wine region are all nearby for day trips and the local markets were also a winner.

The only item we struggled on were there aren't any local restaurants in easy walking distance but if you don't have a problem having a designated driver then you have everything you need around you.

"Great place for couples to stay"

Really enjoyed our stay - excellent hosts with good attention to detail to aid a comfortable holiday. The pool was a great benefit when the spring weather was kind. A quiet location which provided a good base for discovering all the local sites and attractions.

"Perfect peaceful getaway!"

What a superb gite for 2 people! All home comforts provided, and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Marion and Graham. The setting is idyllic and soooooooo peaceful :) A lovely pool to cool off when the sun got too hot, bikes to ride when we fancied a trip out but didn't feel like taking the car and lots of good walks in the area. There are quaint, very 'French' towns nearby, but most of the time we were quite happy just to to chill out, read a book, and soak up the lovely surroundings. A must!!
