Relaxing and peaceful location with fabulous views and sunsets
Just returned from a really great holiday at this lovely Gite. This was such a peaceful and restful location. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful, the house was very comfortable with everything you needed. The living room was spacious with comfortable sofas to relax on in the evening. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and a BBQ was also provided. The outside seating area is great with a beautiful view across the fields and the most amazing sunsets night after night. There is plenty to do in this area - walking, cycling - including a very safe path for cycling with children which is flat and goes for miles. Lots of beautiful towns and villages with their regular markets and fabulous fresh produce to explore. A very large intermarche is just a couple of miles away and the local shop which you can walk to has fresh bread and croissants plus any other essentials you may need. A really great holiday location - the Tarn is a beautiful area.

Tarn glory
We had a wonderful stay in Joan and John's gite in rural Tarn. It really was a get away from it all week in the middle of fields and rolling countryside, even if the weather wasn't always playing ball !! Joan was a great host and was there to answer any queries we had. Very relaxing and just what we needed. Martin & Sue Wilkinson

5/5 Excellent

Charming Gite in beautiful Tarn
We had a wonderful holiday, the Gite is well equipped, a real home from home, set in beautiful countryside and well situated to explore the surrounding area. We visited Albi and Lautrec, and also did a walk around Hautpoul. The village shop is an easy 10 minutes walk away, fresh bread and croissants for breakfast are a must. Joan is a wonderful host, making us feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

Une belle propriété, très au calme...idéal pour se ressourcer... Les enfants se sont bien amusés dans la piscine et les environs sont propices à de belles promenades...
