Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées region

The Midi Pyrenees/Aveyron is located in the South West of France and includes spectacular countryside, the Pyrenean mountains, rivers and gorges, historical sites including many Bastides (walled and fortified towns), medieval villages, museums and art galleries.There are outstanding leisure opportunities, including walking riding, climbing, mountain biking, kayak and canoe set in wonderful natural surroundings. The area benefits from a vibrant community spirit with a fantastic range of markets, fetes and other celebrations. Or just take a step back, relax, and take in the glorious views!

Najac

The immediate area provides a huge variety of activities, sites of natural beauty and interest. The medieval village of Najac with its imposing hill top château is one of the “Plus beaux villages de France” and a "Grand Site midi pyrénées" important culturally and historically in South West France. For families, friends, young and more mature the area is a delight. If you want to explore the villages; take in a local festival, investigate local crafts and traditions be adventurous and go mountain biking, family kayaking, horse riding or swimming - all facilities are available within a very short distance. There is a very good modern swimming pool minutes from the farm in a lovely spot next to the river, alternatively the surrounding area provides a variety of beautiful safe river swimming locations. By the Najac swimming pool you can hire kayaks, bikes, have a go at acro-branching (tree top course for the brave or young!) start a walk along the river or take a picnic at one of the permanent placements. La Singlarie figures on a number of the well marked circular walks around the Najac countryside. Najac offers a good range of shops, excellent dining options from cafés and gourmet restaurants to the popular pizza restaurant and traditional restaurants with great value meals. From spring and to autumn Najac has a lively weekly market selling tasty local produce in the centre of the village and cafés from which to watch the world go by over a coffee or aperitif. In summer there are weekly night markets where tables are laid out to seat locals and visitors keen to try the local cuisine from the various stalls, taste local wines and listen to a wide variety of live music. The village is full of history: visit the part ruined château, walk along its winding streets and discover its hidden treasures - it is a marvellous place to be so near. The annual Najac Fete is over 3 days in August celebrating Saint Barthelemy, is a feast of local cuisine, music, street entertainment, exhibitions and activities culminating in Fireworks over the château - quite a spectacle for the whole village an its visitors. If you prefer to watch from home the fireworks over the château can watched from your gite. For a relaxing evening treat take a short drive to La Garde Viar to the café/bar by the river and enjoy some night time jazz. The "Epicerie du Coin" is an excellent general store in the centre of Najac and with the boulangerie just a few steps away will satisfy many of your food shopping needs. At La Fouillade (15 minutes from La Singlarie) you will find a large Intermarche supermarket with all the usual produce plus a service station for fuel. During spring and summer months it is possible to shop at one of the many village markets any day of the week and we will be pleased to offer any advice concerning which to visit. The bastide of Villefranche de Rouergue (30 mins) is the nearest large town. It has three large supermarkets and all the other shops you are likely to need. Visit its Thursday morning market, one of the largest in the region, held in its central square with medieval arcades, imposing church and visit one of the many restaurants, cafés, bars, explore its history or take a walk along its river front. The larger towns of Albi (home to a spectacular cathedral and enthralling history, plus the Toulouse Lautrec museum, great shopping and restaurants) and Gaillac (famous for its wines) are easily accessible as are other noted attractions such as Cordes-sur-Ciel, Saint-Cirq-lapopie, Figeac, Conques, Belcastel and the Millau viaduct.

“Lovely gite, beautiful views, helpful and friendly owners.”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2011

We liked to stay at La Singlarie - our childreen (we, too) loved to feed and to stroke the animals. The gite is fantastic, and the views are even more. The nature and quietness are really helping to slow down. Jamie and Ali are really helpful and friendly. To experience an organic farm is how it is intended to keep animals. Thank you for that.

“Paradise !!”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2011

The place (location) in it self is amazing, the house and it's luxeries comfortable, the owners are friendly, the area is overwelming and the nature by day and night is PARADISE. No sounds of traffic, people but only countryside noises of animals. wind in the trees and the rushing of a stream. The breaking af the day and the setting of the sun at the end of the day is something you really must see and enjoy! We had a splendid time; see our images on Picasawebalbum june 2011 from Jan-Ernst de Planque
