Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, recharge your batteries in this beautiful stone country cottage nestled in the Gorges of Aveyron. Characteristic original oak beams and stone features from 1809, yet all modern facilities inside. Fields and forest, home to birds, butterflies, horses, goats, owls, squirrels and deer, - yet yards away the Viaur river winds its way quietly west through stunning chalk cliffs to the local villages. Two double bedrooms, (master with private toilet), lounge with wood burning stove, modern kitchen, bathroom with shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet. Wifi throughout. Two outdoor terraces and large garden for barbecues and outdoor games.
Visitors enjoy walking, picnics, cycling, horse riding, fishing, swimming in the river, kayaking, sketching and painting in this artists' paradise. Organic food markets, café's, bars and restaurants, local vineyards, "brocantes" (antique markets) and nearby historic chateaux and medieval hilltop cities beckon. Historic cities from 1200 AD grace the landscape in Najac and Cordes sur Ciel, alongside vines of red, white and rosé lacing the fields next to sunflowers and red poppies. The snow topped mountains of the Pyrenees or the Mediterranean are just a 3 hour drive away.

The Midi-Pyrénées region
This area has stunning scenery, beautiful colours and lots of variety. Very peaceful yet not far from local towns with many historic sites and activities. A week's holiday feels like a month - with no pollution or noise - just the quiet river flowing nearby, a real opportunity to wind down in our busy world of hustle and bustle. Take on the french way of life with good food, family time, places to visit or just rest in the peaceful countryside.
Great restaurants, regular antique 'brocante' and Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday organic local produce in the open air markets - savour the local goats cheeses or just sit and chat in the local bar. Visit the local vineyard for an impromptu wine tasting and pick up a bottle to two to take home. Major Shopping and nightclubs are all available in Gaillac, Albi, or Toulouse a short drive away.
This area is an artist's and culinary delight. Vibrant colours reflected from the bright sunshine lends itself to the rolling hills, chalk gorges and winding rivers.
If you're feeling more adventurous, the river offers swimming, fishing or attempting the rapids in a kayak! In Laguepie there is a riverside bathing area with pontoon which occupies the children for hours. Local mountaineers test their skills in Bor et Bar with supervised mountain climbing for all ages - it's also where athletes come to train on the cycling trails for the Tour de France, which passes nearby every year. Visit Cordes sur Ciel with its falconry and pageantry from days of old, walk up the cobbled streets in this 1200AD hilltop city and discover wonderful 'boutique' shops and restaurants in a unique historic setting.
The climate is ideal, average 25-35 degrees C, (77-95F) with warm sunshine from May to October with low humidity.
Lots to explore, however active you want to be! Or just soak up the peace and quiet and enjoy some good food and excellent french local wine......
Culture, history, gorges, caves, vineyards, pretty villages laden with flowers "beau villages fleuris de France", cycling and walking routes, kayaking through rapids, mountain climbing - are all on your doorstep....and the snow topped mountains of Andorra and the Pyrenees to explore on day trips with the mediterranean sea and Spain just a 3 hour drive away. This undiscovered region has much to offer, for adults and children alike.
