Description from owner

Description

Gorgeous converted barn set in the tranquil rolling hills around Cordes. The barn was built in the early 19th century and has been part of a working farm and vineyard until recently - the wine vats are still in place in the cellar! The house has magnificent views across the countryside to Castelneau de Montmiral 10km away. There is a large garden of nearly 1/2 hectare with plum, cherry, fig and walnut trees. Some of the garden is maintained for playing and lounging in and some is wilder for exploring. The pool is surrounded by decking and loungers and also has superb views. Ideal for cycling and walking holidays.

The barn was converted in 2009 by local craftsmen and now has the original beams exposed, log burner and luxury bathrooms and kitchen. The deep mattresses on all the beds will ensure a comfortable nights sleep.

The house is surrounded by paths and trails for walking and the nearest wine cave is only 15 minutes walk across the valley for local produce. Hilltop villages

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The "golden triangle" in Tarn has a superb climate where it's warm and dry from early spring to late autumn. Albi is the main city of Tarn and has a magnificent brick cathedral from the middle ages and sits next to a museum dedicated to Toulouse- Lautrec who was born in Albi.

Toulouse, 4th largest city in France, is the centre of the European aircraft and space industry with its space museum and airbus factory.

Andorra and the Pyrenees mountains are 2 1/2 hours away and the beaches of the Med 2 hours away. The walled city of Carcassonne which featured in Robin Hood is an hour away.

Itzac

Itzac is surrounded by fortified hilltop villages - from the medieval city of Cordes-sur-Ciel to the small villages of Puycelci and Penne, and the rolling vineyards of Gaillac - so there is plenty to explore. The countryside is criss-crossed with paths and cycle paths.

Cordes was voted ¨Village Prefèré¨ in France in 2014 in a nationwide poll, and St Antonin provided the backdrop for the Helen Mirren film ¨The Hundred Foot Journey¨

Vaour has a week long music and arts festival in August and all the local villages have festivals throughout the summer with food, wine and music.

There is a large Friday market in Gaillac, a smaller market in Cordes on Saturday and a bustling Sunday market in St Antonin.

“Best holiday”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2015

One of the best times my husband and I have had. Accomodation is excellent , countryside and surrounding towns are beautiful and Colin and Janet are two of the best , friendly people you could meet, was sad to leave. The walks are really enjoyable , and both Colin and Janet are excellent guides, and as I mentioned earlier, the gite is really well appointed, with everything you need. Can't recommend high enough

“A fantastic, memorable, special holiday!”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2015

The gite is situated in a rural area with fantastic views. We opted to do the walking holiday option from the gite. The gite was very well equipped, clean and with a beautiful swimming pool. Colin and Janet made us extremely welcome, nothing was too much trouble and they went the extra mile on everything. The walking each day was beautiful, tailored to our needs with amazing picnics at lunchtime. The walking holiday included all meals. The evening meals were served on the terrace overlooking spectacular views. Each meal was four courses and the standard of cooking was excellent. If you are looking for a memorable, special holiday, this is the one!

“great hospitality, lovely surroundings and views”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2014

we were 8 in our group. Colin and Janet's house was perfect for our needs. They made us feel at home from the first minute we walked into the house. Rooms were great, everything well kept. Great view, especially when dining outside at night, looking at the stars. Meals were superb (we got out fatter than we came...). Colin did a super job guiding us through the walks - everyday a different scenery! Highly recommend. Our group was very happy.

“Fantastic property - don't hesitate to book”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

My husband and I stayed at La Terrasse from 8-15 June this year and had a great time. If you are considering renting this house for your holiday then don’t hesitate – it is even better than it looks in the photos and the surroundings are extremely beautiful and very peaceful. The week that we stayed turned out to be unusually mixed weather for June, including two days of cold rain and two days of hot sunshine. This house is perfect no matter what the weather and we got to use both the log-burner and the swimming pool in equal measure! Itzac itself is a small picturesque hamlet and the only drawback is the lack of a boulangerie, however this is only a minor set-back as you can easily stock up when passing through nearby towns such as Corde (10mins by car) or larger Gaillac (25mins). The facilities at the house are excellent with a very nicely appointed kitchen / dining area, large lounge with comfortable furnishings and vaulted ceiling, and 4 beautifully decorated bedrooms. There are private terraces directly off the two double bedrooms as well – very nice for morning coffee. The house is attached to the owners’ property however it still manages to remain very private, and considering how welcoming the owners are, we actually found this to be a plus. Thanks for the hospitality Colin & Janet – we had a brilliant and very relaxing week in your wonderful house. It’s staying on our list of places to return to and we hope to see you again!

“Wonderful property, great location.”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2013

This truly is a lovely home with lots of space for everybody, both inside and outside. The pool is wonderful and there are great views. An excellent place to unwind and yet close enough to interesting places to visit. At the same time the area offers great walking/cycling opportunities. Colin and Janet will be happy to answer all your questions. Their knowledge of the area is quite extensive. We would have loved to see the sunflowers bloom. The fields must have been beautiful.

“At home in a beautiful and tranquil setting!”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2013

This was definitely a great spot to destress. From the spacious terrace in every direction are countryside views of rolling hills, a distant hill top village, and on a clear day I was even able to see the snow capped pyrenees. I did a walking holiday with full board. The meals were always very good and served with local wine. Colin and Janet made me feel so welcome and at home. We did some great walks and on days we couldnt walk they invited me to see local sites and visit local markets. If you are here independantly with a car there are lots of things to see and do within a very short distance - Cordes, Albi, and Gaillac among others, are very close. All have historical sites, great markets and restaurants. Gaillac is also a good sized wine region and there are lots of nearby vineyards where you can taste and buy wine. Its a wonderful walking area with some great vistas. The accommodations are top notch in tastefully renovated stone farm buildings.. I stayed in a room attached to the main house with private bath which was perfect for me. I enjoyed my time here immensely, and would highly recommend it to others.

“Convenient accommodation with nice atmosphere”

Reviewed 30 May 2013

Despite the unuasual cold weather conditions we had a splendid time. The owners were very helpful and shared a lot of tips. The house was more than big enough for my partner, myself, our 3 teenagers and my father. With 4 big bedrooms everybody had enough privacy. There are many nice authentic towns in the neighbourhood (Cordes-sur-Ciel, Albi, Gaillac, ...) and the kids and we had some peak-experiences in Cap d'Ecouverte (don't skip this when you have older kids or if you are adventurous, it is really worth and not at all spoiled by commercial drive).

“Top class accommodation in a stunning location.”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2012

Perfect for a peaceful, relaxing stay within striking distance of many authentic towns and villages. Friendly, helpful owners with long experience of the Region and its attractions. A must for wine lovers with many top quality vineyards close at hand. Ideal location with easy access from airports at Carcassonne, Toulouse, and Rodez. A visit to Carcassonne is a must, but take time to visit local villages such as Cordes-sur-Ciel which is stunning.

“Fantastic Property in an amazing location”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2012

First class accommodation in the most amazing location- the property is of an exceptionally high standard, and the owners could not be more helpful. Highly Recommended.

“A little bit of French Paradise...”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

The house is set in a picturesque village in the heart of rural Gailliac, surrounded by beautiful countryside, vinyards & fabulous walks, all mapped out for ease. The accomodaton is very spacious and the standard is very high. The beds were very comfortable and all the bedding, linen and accessories are of the best quality. The kitchen has all mod cons and best cooking facilities with a beautiful large dining table to sit and enjoy all the wonderful local produce with friends and family. We loved the pool area which was very well maintained. All in all, a little piece of paradise in South West France. Highly recommended.
