Barbecue on the terraces, soak up the views, and listen to the children splashing in the pool. The landscape surrounding this former farmstead is rural and quiet in every season. Relax to the chatter of cicadas, the buzzing of bees, and the occasional hum of a tractor. At night the skies are studded with stars.
The Aveyron is like a place that time forgot, yet you’re ten minutes from civilisation. Turn right at the lane for little Lunac (3km), with its 12th-century church, bar, square and boulangerie. Turn left for La Fouillard (5.5km) for shops, cafes, restaurants and all you need.
There’s an inviting gîte for four (plus child) as well, which can be booked independently or together with the main house – whatever you choose to book, another group of guests won’t be able to book at the same time so you always have exclusive use of the pool and grounds.
