Description

Large stone farm house set on 15 hectares, top of hill overlooking valley and virtually 360 degree views of the beautiful Tarn hillsides. The house, built in 1646, is of typical pale Tarn stone with huge rooms, exposed beams and many stone walls. Four different terraces/patios so that private time is always an option. This is ideal place for both parties with lots of active children and those who just want to sit back and enjoy the French summer. Four "bastide" villages are nearby (Castelnau, Puycelsi, Cordes/Ciel, Bruniquel), each with its weekly market. Very large pool with deck chairs and pool towels for everyone.

The property consists of the main house (3 or 4 BRs depending on needs) and the old stables which have been renovated (additional BR and "kids dormitory" in the rafters). NOTE THE BASE PRICE ON THIS SITE ASSUMES GUESTS WISH TO LET ENTIRE PROPERTY. ; we are happy to provide a quote for just the main house OR the stable flat; the former

NOTE THE BASE PRICE ON THIS SITE ASSUMES GUESTS WISH TO LET ENTIRE PROPERTY. ; we are happy to provide a quote for just the main house OR the stable flat; the former suitable for parties of 6 to 8, the latter for a small family. There are two full kitchens which is ideal with very large parties. three picnic tables (one on covered patio in case too hot), and cutlery, dishes and glassware etc for 24 so that large parties don't have to wash dishes after every meal.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE OLD BARN WING IS NOT HEATED. IN COLDER MONTHS THE PROPERTY HAS 3 BRS, 3 BATHS, A SALON AND KITCHEN WITH DINING TABLE.

House is fully equipped with all that is needed for a holiday in the french countryside. We provide the kitchen basics as well (salt, pepper, spices, cooking oil) and just ask that you replace anything you finish up. We are happy to do grocery shopping for you on first day in case where your arrival is too late (or Sunday) when shops are closed. We can provide on request housekeeping or catering services via local contacts.

The gardens are simple and consist of locally native plants with emphasis on lavendar, sage, rosemary and succulents The pool is 14 metres long so good for morning laps. The property abuts a national forest ("Foret de Gresigne") with tens of miles of hiking trails. There are four "bastide" villages within short drive for breaks from the "rough country life". Wineries to visit, local markets to shop.

Gailac, the local market town with full services, is a 15 minute drive. Toulouse for a night out is one hour.

Numerous hiking trails in the area as well.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The Tarn area one hour north of Toulouse is one of the loveliest and still unspoiled areas of southern France. It remains an authentic agricultural area (grapes and sunflowers being the primary crops) with gentle rolling hills and 1,000 year old stone walled villages ("les bastides"). The Aveyron River is 30 minutes away with canoeing and kayaking, all the local villages have markets one or two days per week. This is an area of remarkable natural beauty that is never crowded with tourists and where you can just kick back and "live like God in France". As the area is not inundated with tourists during the summer, the locals are quite friendly and you will be rewarded with a smile if you try out your rusty french.

Castelnau-de-Montmiral

The house itself is very isolated on a low hill top about five minute drive from the village of Castelnau de Montmrial. Gaillac, the nearest market town, is about 15 minutes away and has full shopping facilities (including two hypermarchés and a large open air market twice a week) and an SNCF train station with regular 40 minute service to the Toulouse main train station.

The Toulouse airport is an hour's drive or about 90 minutes via public transport.
