Up the restored chestnut staircase leading from the kitchen you reach the two large bedrooms and family bathroom. The large master bedroom is full of character and offers a relaxing calm environment. Built-in wardrobe and enclosed shelving provide ample room to get all your luggage tucked away. (There is plenty of space for an infant cot or 2!).

The modern tiled bathroom has a full size bath, sink and WC.

Further details outdoors

The farm complex is large and is situated on the edge of a small hamlet overlooking the Viaur valley. The grounds and pool are shared with the other two gites and the resident English owners. A large 12x6m swimming pool was added to the property in summer 2006 and is completed with fencing to comply with French regulations. The views from the pool side are beautiful.

Despite being a shared complex, there is plenty of space for privacy. Older visiting children may use residents adventure playground which is situated below the pool, younger visitors can make full use of the toddler area located in the main grounds.

Further details

The shared swimming pool is open when the weather permits, usually from May to October and is shared with the owners. All bedlinen, towels and swim towels are included in the rental price. There is a surcharge of €50 /week to cover heting costs and wood during the low season letting period. Special walking/cycling/painting holidays are available during low/mid season. Changeover day is Sat but this is flexible during mid/low season to enable clients to make best use of very low Ryanair flight prices (eg £10 + taxes). Please contact owners for further details.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

Being quite far South in France the weather is naturally a definite plus for this area. We have the added advantage that we are at quite a high altitude on the south of the Massif Central. This means we benefit from very pleasant long Spring and Autumn conditions, but also have slightly cooler temperatures in the main hot summer months compared with other locations this far south.

The region is dominated by plateaux dissected by wide meandering rivers providing stunning gorge scenery. Add to this the fantastic array of bastide towns and villages, castle fortresses and Chateaux and the two historic cities of Rodez and Albi and you are spoilt for choice.

Teillet

The hamlet of Teillet lies on the Aveyron/Tarn border, half way between the two historic cities of Rodez and Albi. Both cities offer a wealth of architecture, amazing Cathedrals, bustling backstreets to explore and endless outside dining possibilities.

Within the area are many bastide villages, many ranking in the category of 'most beautiful villages in France'. Most noteable are: Conques; Sauveterre de Rouergue; Villefranche de Rouergue; St Antonin de Noble Val; Najac; Cordes-sur-ciel and Monasties and the list continues. All of these villages offer unique shops, crafts, markets, and festivals. The 'nocturne' (night markets) in the summer months are not to be missed.

Day excursions:

Albi/Rodez - great for a glimpse of the history + architecture in the region (stylish shopping too!)

Toulouse - for that 'has to be done' shopping experience

Millau Viaduct - well worth a visit + can be combined by coming back through the famous 'Gorges du Tarn'.

Cap Decouverte - adventure park for the whole family, ski, waterski, swim, taboggan, or even ride the longest zip line in Europe

Micropolis - city of insects - fascinates the children, but a good day out for the whole family

Bastide d'Albigiouse - car circuit to take in the key bastide towns around Albi

For those who prefer to stay closer to home the area is ideal for walking, cycling, birdwatching and generally taking in this calm serene area.

There are many activities for children in the local area including children's farms, wildlife parks, outdoor swimming complexes, canoeing, sailing to name just a few.
