Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées region

This area is rich in varied history and beauty. From the first planting of grapes by the Romans in the 4th Century AD, to the history of the Cathar religion and their destruction in the 12th and 13th centuries. There are many Bastide or fortified villages in the area including the walled city of Cordes sur Ciel. The UNESCO heritage listed medieval city of Albi is 20 minutes away along the Tarn river which is also home to the Toulouse Lautrec museum. To the east is the new viaduct at Millau and the natural grandeur of the Gorges du Tarn. There are many markets in the vicinity and you can drive to the Pyrenees in 2 hours and then on to Spain or Andorra.

Gaillac

Brens is a quiet and relaxing village making it an ideal base from which to visit the surrounding areas. Across the river is Gaillac a largish town that supports the surrounding areas with banks, supermarkets, hospital and business services.

Gaillac has a lovely brick abbey, tourist office, museum, art museum located in a a very pleasant garden and a major market each Friday as well as a smaller market on Sundays.

One of the special pleasures of staying in this area is the charm of provincial French people going about their lives free from tourist crowds.

“Delightful residence with a wonderful ambience”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2012

Chevrefeuille is a delightful cottage close to all amenities. Situated in Brens, it is a short distance from Gaillac - a quiet village if you are looking for a peaceful holiday. The cottage is comfortable and has most mod cons. It's a great base to do day trips around the district. Highly recommended and offers great value.

“Excellent holiday venue, great value,”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

Four of us shared this spacious and well appointed restored three storey house for a week, We could not fault the place. The rooms are spacious, kitchen well appointed, sufficient bathrooms and toilets, well furnished. Great views of the river. Excellent location for exploring the countryside and neighbouring villages. Close enough to walk to supermarkets but very peaceful location, photos do the place justice.

“absolutely maganificent”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

Words can not describe how maginifcent this place is. A 400 year old house in a medival village with a wonderful ambience which s brillantly maintained. It has all the facilities and is great. Brens itself is a delight (its Baker, Tabac and the mobile pizza van amongst other things)as is the near town gaillac. There was a wonderful atmosphere and we were fully made to feel welcome in the area. Thenear area is maignifient incluidng such towens as Albi (The cathedral), Cordes San Antonin De Val(best street market in France). Further away places like Toulouse Carcasonne and millau are really worth the efforts. Be ready for some uncharted pleasant surprises. It is even worth the effort to go to places like rockamadour and Andorra. Make sure you have a car. What makes all of this though is the house. The real statement is that when we return to France we will be staying here again. Please we implore you top book this place and have the pleasure of the expereinece we had

“Very comfortable atmospheric historic home”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2012

Just the right sort of home to stay in during a French holiday-old and historic but very comfortable and well equipped inside. Liked that instructions for use of equipment, eg washing machine, were in English. A very good supply of tourist maps, brochures, bus timetables, and English language books in the house as well as a fascinating book in which previous guests have written multiple suggestions about places to visit and things to do. Easy parking in the village of Brens near the house. The house has 3 levels so would be difficult if stairs were a problem or with very young children. Excellent website by owners to help plan your holiday in this part of France.

“Sympathetically restored village cottage by the Tarn, close to bastides, wineries and attractions”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2011

Sympathetically restored historic village cottage. All the facilities required at a reasonable price. Good boulangerie and bar for lunch in the village. Close to historic perched villages, Albi, wineries, scenic drives and walks, notable gardens. Good markets at nearby Gaillac and other towns in the area. Great having our own private walkway right on the river Tarn. Easy parking nearby. Still comfortable with 6 adults and a baby.

“Comfortable house, wonderful location”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2011

We found the house comfortable and wonderfully well equipped. It is the sort of house where there is a welcoming atmosphere - a bottle of wine on the table and basic items such as salt, pepper, sugar, oil are there to be used and replaced by each successive tenant. That atmosphere of welcome and trust really sets the scene for the holiday. Brens is a great location. The Tarn river area is really very beautiful with lots of places to visit and even in August was not full of tourists. It was a pleasure to go out in the morning in the village to buy croissants and baguettes from the local boulangerie. We had a wonderful time in this lovely old village house which has been modernised enough for comfort but does not detract in any way.
