Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Historic sites near Le Combal are Najac, Cordes-Sur-Ciel, Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, Villefranche-de-Rouergue as well as the gorges of the Aveyron (Castles of Bruniquel and Penne).
Also nearby, the vineyards of Gaillac cover the hillsides where many of the chateaux offer wine tasting.

Quercy-Rouergue in West Aveyron is a greatly undiscovered region with stunning natural beauty and unspoilt charm. Aveyron is famous for Laguiole knives and gourmet cuisine (Roquefort cheese, beef, duck, wild mushrooms, sweet chestnuts, walnuts, foie gras and possibly the best food in the world: Aligot!)
The region is dotted with medieval towns and villages, local markets, ancient castles, wild rivers and chestnut forests. The clean rivers are great for swimming in & fishing. During the autumn, a variety of wild mushrooms can be gathered in the extensive oak & chestnust forests including the famous cèpes (porcini) mushrooms.

Saint-Andre-de-Najac

Gîte Le Combal is situated just 8km (5miles) from the picturesque village of Najac and its medieval hill-top castle. The holiday property is on the outskirts of the smaller village of St-André-de-Najac which has a very good restaurant and café (Relais Mont Le Viaur), a general grocer's shop, post office and music bar. All within an easy 15 minute stroll from the property.

“Gite delight in the heart of France”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

Le Combal is a perfect gite for a large family holiday, well placed on the edge of a small village with an excellent restaurant. The pool is one of the best we have encountered over many years with magnificent views over the countryside (almost an infinity pool). The shaded eating area by the pool (one of two outside) was used by us for lunches and dinners throughout a sun-drenched week. Nearby was a poolside room with toilet and washbasin - only lacking was a poolside shower. Four loungers and two seats were provided - two more would have been welcome - we were six. The layout of the rooms in the house - bedrooms and kitchen and lounge on one level - was very convenient. We know the area well and we were able to visit old haunts like Najac and Villefranche and Laguepie as well as river swim in the valley in the Viaur. We renewed our family battles at the nearby quirky 22-hole mini-golf. Easy access to supermarket, excellent patisserie, pharmacy about six kilometres from gite on main road - and many other facilities in La Fouillade, including, importantly for us, a doctor.
