A comfortable holiday home of 85m2 that sleeps up to 5 people. It has a spacious bathroom with walk-in shower and two bedrooms. The gîte has French doors that open to the garden with your own, secluded terrace equipped with a dining table and chairs, deckchairs and a barbecue. The open kitchen is fully equipped to make self-catering easy and pleasurable.

The living room is equipped with comfortable three-seaters, a low table and a wood-burning stove. There is a large dining table that seats 8 and a play area with a play rug and school bench with paper, pencils, glue and the like for children. We left the old manger as it was, it now serves for stocking wood, as a book shelf (with books in English, Dutch and French). We have a large collection of English books to borrow from during your stay. Our gîtes do not have a television but you'll have free WiFi access and ample sockets to plug in your own equipment.

Our gronds of 2,5 hectares are home to age-old chestnut and fruit trees. There is little more relaxing than whiling away the afternoon gently swaying in a hammock under the walnut tree. We've created several spots with picnic tables and seats where you can enjoy the views. Or you could take a refreshing plunge in the pool (5x8x1.40m) to just come out and bask in the warm sun afterwards.

We heave made an effort to build our gîtes in an ecological way. This means that warm water is provided by solar-energy, we use low energy light bulbs and heating comes from woodstoves in which we burn wood from our own land. The toilets are flushed with rainwater from a 50.000 litre reservoir and the vegetable garden is watered with water from the well.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

Albi, the City of the red cathedral, the museum of the painter Toulouse-Lautrec and the explorer Lapérouse is 20 minutes away. Since 1 August 2010, the old town of Albi is on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. The red brick and terraces give the city an almost Italian atmosphere.

The Tarn and Aveyron are known for their bastide towns. Wonderful medieval town squares surrounded by arcades and half-timbered houses. Pick your favourite village or take a nice day trip.


In the surrouding area you'll find several places where you can swim and enjoy the sunshine. The banks of the Viaur river offer a shady relaxed spot, with a pebble beach so that you can build dams, and there's a patrolled sandy beach at the Lac de Roucarié. The river Tarn is ideally suited for canoeing (for children over the age of 6). And there are several small scale attractions such as the Château et Parc du Colombier where you can see wild animals AND a medieval castle, the Parc animalier de Pradinas (zoo and playground) and the Aventure Parc Saint-Pierre de Trivisy which offers outdoor activities for children and adults.
