Swimming in the nearby Viaur river is a family favourite, followed by crepes and live jazz at the riverside café.

Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées region

Only recently easily accessible by air links and the new A20 motorway, Aveyron has been described as one of the last secret areas of France.

The Aveyron has 10 of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France" (the most beautiful villages in France), more than any other department. The major rivers of Lot, Aveyron and Tarn each have stunning gorges and now the world's highest viaduct bridge which spans the river Tarn at Millau has really helped put the region on the map.

Our SW corner of the Aveyron is an undiscovered delight. The area is heavily forested with oak and chestnut and full of river valleys which keep the region green even in high summer. The rivers are unpolluted and great for swimming. Medieval villages and towns abound but traffic jams and crowds are scarce even in August.

The pace of life is slow and traditional markets still play an important part in this rural region as does gastronomy - cheeses from Roquefort, Rocamador, and Laguiole; wines from Gaillac, Cahors and Marcillac; locally produced pate du fois gras and saucisson. Plenty of good local restaurants including Michelin starred.

La Fouillade

La Fouillade is a bustling village with great shops - artisan bakers, grocers, pharmacy and supermarket with 24hr petrol station. It also has cafes, doctors, bank and post office.

Nearby activities include: horse riding, canoeing, sailing, climbing, accrobranche, mountain biking, and pottery. Medieval towns within an hour's drive include: Najac, Villefranche de Rouergue, Cordes-sur-Ciel, St Antonin-Noble-Val, Belcastel, Figeac, Cahors. Also, Albi and Conques - both classed as World Heritage Sites. Prehistoric caves at Pech Merle & Rocamadour.

Summer festivals include: medieval pageant at Cordes July 14th weekend; AfriCajarc music festival end of July; Najac fete 3rd weekend in August.
