French doors lead from the dining area to a balcony with steps down to the cottage garden and upper dining terrace.

Access: The property has level access throughout, including level threshold, wide doors and a large walk-in shower/large bathroom. Whilst the internal accommodation is fully accessible to people with restricted mobility and wheelchair users, the gardens are sloping with some steps and sloping grassed areas so assistance will be necessary. Driveway and front entrance area are generally level (gravelled - no tarmac or hard paving).

Fire: there is a fire extinguisher and fire blanket located in the kitchen/dining area.

Further details outdoors

There are 2 terraces with flower borders and grassed areas to relax in. The pool enclosure is gated and includes a pool-side terraces with sun loungers, a barbecue and large table for dining alfresco. From here at 420m above sea-level, you can enjoy panoramic views and superb sunsets.

The outdoor pool is 9m x 4.5m and 1.5m deep. It has a shallow area for toddlers and a salt system (no chlorine) with additional solar boost which raises water temperature on sunny days. The adjacent pool house holds a summer kitchen with sink & fridge (for preparing salads/BBQ food) plus a changing room with toilet.

Children will enjoy the gardens, pool, swings and toddler slide as well as the toys/games provided inside the property.

There is a clothes line in the garden and ample shady flat parking near the entrance of the property.

Further details

The property is semi-detached with no other neighbours within half a kilometre. The pool and gite gardens are exclusively for you and your guests use during your stay. In accordance with French regulations the pool has security fencing and child safety gates. The house is non-smoking and pets are not admitted.

Note: The outdoor swimming pool is open in June, July, August and September. Weather permitting, it may also be possible to swim from mid-May through to the end of October. We like to provide a swimming temperatures of between 20 to 30 degrees C in summer, but cannot guarantee this if the weather is unusually cold. The pool is not heated but has a solar piping boost which raises the water temperature on sunny days.

About this location

The Midi-Pyrénées region

Historic sites near Le Combal are Najac, Cordes-Sur-Ciel, Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, Villefranche-de-Rouergue as well as the gorges of the Aveyron (Castles of Bruniquel and Penne).

Also nearby, the vineyards of Gaillac cover the hillsides where many of the chateaux offer wine tasting.

Quercy-Rouergue in West Aveyron is a greatly undiscovered region with stunning natural beauty and unspoilt charm. Aveyron is famous for Laguiole knives and gourmet cuisine (Roquefort cheese, beef, duck, wild mushrooms, sweet chestnuts, walnuts, foie gras and possibly the best food in the world: Aligot!)

The region is dotted with medieval towns and villages, local markets, ancient castles, wild rivers and chestnut forests. The clean rivers are great for swimming in & fishing. During the autumn, a variety of wild mushrooms can be gathered in the extensive oak & chestnust forests including the famous cèpes (porcini) mushrooms.


Gîte Le Combal is situated just 8km (5miles) from the picturesque village of Najac and its medieval hill-top castle. The holiday property is on the outskirts of the smaller village of St-André-de-Najac which has a very good restaurant and café (Relais Mont Le Viaur), a general grocer's shop, post office and music bar. All within an easy 15 minute stroll from the property.


St-André-de-Najac is great for outdoor activities such as: hiking and walks in the adjacent chestnut woods, cycling on the lanes, mountain biking on woodland tracks and tennis on the village court. Pottery classes & mini golf are available just outside the village.

Lagarde-Viaur is just 2km (1.2miles) from the holiday cottage for: swimming in the river Viaur, fishing and rock-climbing. During summer evenings, on the banks of the Viaur river, there is a welcoming café/restaurant with live Jazz.

Nearby Laguépie has a campsite with cafe, childrens playgrounds, waterslide and crazy golf -all open to the public.

Najac, awarded 'one of the most beautiful villages in France', has excellent canoeing, fishing, a tree top zip-wire adventure course, rock-climbing, mountain bike rental and horse riding. Explore the medieval cobbled streets, old buildings, boutique shops, bars and restaurants. The climb up to its church and ancient fortress is well worth the effort.


Najac has a good bakery, newsagents and gift shops. Laguépie and La Fouillade villages have more choice for food shopping and are less than 10 minutes drive from the property. Both villages have a good butchers, bakeries, grocers, chemists, newsagents and small foodstores. La Fouillade village also benifits from a reasonably sized Intermarché supermarket with petrol station. A Larger selection of shops and big supermarkets can be found at the town of Villefranche-de-Rouergue -20 minutes drive north of the property.
