In the courtyard there is a well with a stone surround and roof. A herb garden and flower beds are also to be found in the courtyard. There is a covered pond and beside it a seating area makes a wonderfully cool retreat from the summer sun. A private parking area adjacent to the house allows easy access directly to the main entrance. The 5 x 10 metre pool is close to the house and has a large roof terrace at one end with extensive views. There is a ping-pong table beside the house.
The pool is exclusively reserved for the occupants of this property. The property is very private and not overlooked.
In the area you will easily find facilities for canoeing, windsurfing, hot-air ballooning, pony trekking, mountain bike riding, and visits to limestone caverns. The Aveyron Gorges are nearby, the Tarn Gorges are a morning's drive away to the east and the Pyrenees are the same distance to the South West. If you prefer you can simply enjoy the undisturbed peace and quiet of Roucaillou and just venture out to sample some of the many fine restaurants in the area or to visit the vineyards of Cahors and Gaillac. There is a golf course at Albi, 30 minutes away.
The cottage is situated close to Najac, which is listed as one of the prettiest villages in France. It is a town which, apart from being spectacularly picturesque, has a long history and retains many features from the days when its chateau was established as a fortress for the Count of Toulouse. A short drive away is the splendidly preserved medieval hilltop village of Cordes sur Ciel. A little further, and still within an hour's drive, is the red-brick medieval town of Albi with its famous cathedral and Toulouse Lautrec museum. Within easy reach are Villefranche de Rouergue, Rocamadour , St. Cirq Lapopie, Bruniquel, and many bastide villages - most with local markets
