Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Being quite far South in France the weather is naturally a definite plus for this area. We have the added advantage that we are at quite a high altitude on the south of the Massif Central. This means we benefit from very pleasant long Spring and Autumn conditions, but also have slightly cooler temperatures in the main hot summer months compared with other locations this far south.

The region is dominated by plateaux dissected by wide meandering rivers providing stunning gorge scenery. Add to this the fantastic array of bastide towns and villages, castle fortresses and Chateaux and the two historic cities of Rodez and Albi and you are spoilt for choice.

Teillet

The hamlet of Teillet lies on the Aveyron/Tarn border, half way between the two historic cities of Rodez and Albi. Both cities offer a wealth of architecture, amazing Cathedrals, bustling backstreets to explore and endless outside dining possibilities.

Within the area are many bastide villages, many ranking in the category of 'most beautiful villages in France'. Most noteable are: Conques; Sauveterre de Rouergue; Villefranche de Rouergue; St Antonin de Noble Val; Najac; Cordes-sur-ciel and Monasties and the list continues. All of these villages offer unique shops, crafts, markets, and festivals. The 'nocturne' (night markets) in the summer months are not to be missed.

Day excursions:
Albi/Rodez - great for a glimpse of the history + architecture in the region (stylish shopping too!)
Toulouse - for that 'has to be done' shopping experience
Millau Viaduct - well worth a visit + can be combined by coming back through the famous 'Gorges du Tarn'.
Cap Decouverte - adventure park for the whole family, ski, waterski, swim, taboggan, or even ride the longest zip line in Europe
Micropolis - city of insects - fascinates the children, but a good day out for the whole family
Bastide d'Albigiouse - car circuit to take in the key bastide towns around Albi

For those who prefer to stay closer to home the area is ideal for walking, cycling, birdwatching and generally taking in this calm serene area.

There are many activities for children in the local area including children's farms, wildlife parks, outdoor swimming complexes, canoeing, sailing to name just a few.
