Cordes Sur Ciel is a spectacular bastide town perched on top of a hill whose steep cobbled streets can be leisurely explored.

Children love the face painting and the musical performers while the parents can enjoy the food and wine. There are several museums , art galleries and restaurants where lunch can be enjoyed from terraces with spectacular views

The area is of particular interest to those who may want to enjoying canoeing on the Aveyron river , cycling, walking, rock climbing , caving, horse riding and bird watching. There is a small resort with a swimming pool less than 20 minutes away by car. For the children there is a water park with heated pool and activities at nearby Cordes

A local train journey from Cordes through the gorges to the historic village of Najac is not to be missed.

The countryside around St Michel is teeming with wildlife including deer, wild boar, owls, bats and many species of bird life.

The area around the nearby town of Gaillac is famous for its local wines and there are many producers where you will be invited to taste the wine and tour the vineyard. Competitions are held every year.

There is a golf course just outside Gaillac where the view of Albi from the hole number 10 is quite superb and several others in the area.

The managers of the house who live nearby will be happy to provide plenty of information on local activities to ensure an enjoyable holiday.

"Peaceful relaxing holiday"

If you're looking for a peaceful relaxing break then St Michel de Vax and Walnut Cottage is a must with all the wildlife and country lanes that provide good walks, although a vehicle is essential St Antonin Noble Val is a short drive away. The large market here is well worth a visit. All in all we had a very relaxing holiday and would return.
