Very quaint space with french doors that open out onto a terrace overlooking the river. There is table and chairs at your disposal on the river bank. Ideally positioned for country walks, either to the village of Livinhac le haut where there is a boulangerie, tabac, convenience store, butcher and bar/restaurant, or to Boisse Penchot where there is a boulangerie and a restaurant. The boulangerie at Boisse Penchot bakes in an 800 year old wood fired oven for delicious natural breads.
Within 2 km there are kayaks to rent, across the river and walking distance there is a public swimming pool. About 2km on the other side of the river there is a wonderful camp ground with a swimming pool and tennis court very inexpensively priced for full day use. There is also many hiking and mountain biking tracks in the area, in fact, the area is well known for it's ruggedness and vtt trails. This is also a fabulous area for road cycling and the Tour de France often passes fairly close by.

The Midi-Pyrénées region
The Region is large and there are so many things to see within an hour or two's drive such as the Millau Bridge or the underground caves and river near Rocamadour. There is a local train to Toulouse which takes two hours. In this region you will find vineyards, beautiful valleys, mountains and ruins.The region is home to one of the chemins of the St Jacques de Compostelle pilgrim walk, and it is possible to walk a section of the trail which is close to our location. The region is not heavily frequented by tourists, and is very agricultural and retains a lot of the French traditions and festivals. Many of our guest comment that they wished they had taken longer to see everything that was on offer, which ranges from 12th century villages, underground caves and many street markets and weekend festivities.
Rodez. and Villefranche are the epicentres of the Aveyron, they are surrounded by many beautiful villages such as Salle la Source and Belcastel. La Maison Rouge is conveniently located near Rodez without being in the busy city, it takes just 20-30 minutes to get to the Rodez airport. Closer to home you will find the gorgeous medieval villages of Conques, La Vinzelle, Peyrusse le roc and Capdenac le haut plus many more. We provide GPS coordinates to all of these villages and sites. It is a fantastic cycling and walking area, with many things to see and do within a shot distance of La Maison Rouge. Between May and September, there is a daily restaurant boat which travels up and down the Lot River, and passes La Maison Rouge. It is very popular, and the meal and trip is well reviewed.

"Beautiful accommodation in a stunning, tranquil part of the world"
Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip, it was so relaxing and refreshing, just what we needed! We took advantage of the cycling facilities available, such a stunning area to see my bike. We will be going back to enjoy this place again!
You are always very welcome!!
