Arrive to find an enchanting stone farmhouse and barn from the 1800s, with a traditional tiled roof and dormer windows. You stay in the barn, divided into two spaces and connected via a door in the living rooms – super for multi-generational groups or those wanting privacy. Inside, the two living rooms are airy and well-equipped kitchens are immaculate – you’ll find bread, wine, juice and walnuts from the garden for your arrival. Slopey-ceilinged bedrooms are spacious and warm. A balcony runs along the entire west side so you can catch the evening sun.
Head to stunning hilltop Najac (16km) for its medieval streets, castle, restaurants and weekly night markets; climb, swim and kayak in the Aveyron Gorges.
Come home to table tennis and board games, barbecues by the pool… spot golden orioles, woodpeckers, hoopoes, owls and tiny pipistrelle bats. Surrounded by oaks, walnut trees and grassy sloped terrain, it’s as peaceful as can be.
