St. Antonin barn description

The Grange at La Valette is a fully renovated barn with two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a very large living area. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob units. We provide all the equipment required including TV, video, BBQ, mountain bikes, and linen and towels. The pool is exclusive to the gite and is situated in its own grounds within the 2 acre garden.

The area is peaceful, yet only 20 minutes by car from Albi (famous for its cathedral and Toulouse-Lautrec museum). The beautiful Tarn valley is very close, where there is canoeing, cycling and walking. In the region there is lots to see and do including the bastide villages, wine growing, activity centres and wildlife parks.

With easy access from the airports of Toulouse (1.15hrs) and Rodez (1.15hrs) this is a lovely part of France and well worth a visit. We will make you very welcome at La Valette.

Golf: There is a very good golf club in Albi (Lasbordes) and another two nearby. Clubs are available for hire and green fees vary but are around 35-50 Euros.
