    Description

    One of three gites, set in outstanding scenery overlooking the Viaur Gorge this beautifully restored former farmhouse offers traditional architecture whilst providing all the modern comforts of home. The property is located on a farm complex which is in a small hamlet. The hamlet is located on the border of the Aveyron and Tarn departments offering easy access to all that these fabulously unspoilt departments have to offer.

    The house is entered via a private patio area which has a table and seating for 6. A BBQ is provided and a sun canopy with outside lighting ensuring the perfect ambiance for al-fresco dining. Views from this patio are stunning and stretch for miles over the surrounding area. Through the front door you enter the large kitchen diner. The kitchen is fitted to a very high standard with separate freezer and fridge, dishwasher, microwave, electric oven and gas hob with extractor. It is fully stocked to enable full cooking facilities including over work-top lighting. Large dining table seats up to 8. Ceiling beams and exposed stone walls provide atmospheric dining.

    Through the kitchen is the salon providing a lovely cool area to relax with ample seating for 6, Satelite TV, DVD + video player. Just off the salon is the hydro-wet room + WC, providing a new experience in bathing and relaxation. Up the restored chestnut staircase leading from the kitchen you reach the two large bedrooms and family bathroom. The large master bedroom is full of character and offers a relaxing calm environment. Built-in wardrobe and enclosed shelving provide ample room to get all your luggage tucked away. (There is plenty of space for an infant cot or 2!). The second bedroom is fitted with 3 single beds, 2 chest of drawers and a large fitted wardrobe. (There is room for a 4th bed if necessary). Both bedrooms have lovely views across the countryside. The modern tiled bathroom has a full size bath, sink and WC.

    In the grounds you will find the newly built 12mx6m swimming pool. It has a large 1m deep area entered by semi circular steps providing a large safe area for less confident swimmers. This slopes away to a final depth of 2m allowing for those who like to dive.

    There is ample pool furniture available so you can enjoy relaxing and taking in the breath-taking views across the Viaur Gorge. The grounds are large with plenty of space for children to play safely. The pool is fitted with safety fencing. Owners play-area is available for guests over 5 to use and there is a special under 5's play area closer to the gites.

    Washing machine, tumble drier and ironing facilities are housed in separate laundry alongside the house where there is internet access and a free phone line to UK and France landlines.
