About the property


The little hamlet of Blanc overlooks the beautiful Sanctus valley. Hawks, deer and wild boar roam its chestnut woodland, the pure air and mountain streams allow rare plants to thrive, and with no ground light you can still see the Milky Way.

The village consists of the remains of a 9th century chateau, a church and several stone houses with 8 hectares of grounds overlooking the valley.

Blanc lies in the middle of two regional parks, the Grands Causses and the Haut Languedoc, whose landscape is among the most beautiful and unspoilt in France and is therefore ideal walking country. There are several walks, with a specially edited walking guide, which leave from the village, lasting between 45 minutes and 6 hours.

The region is widely recognised for its wide range of outdoor activities. Horse and donkey riding are available locally, while for those in search of water, there's an abundance of streams and rivers, the breathtaking Tarn and Aveyron gorges, a swimming pond in the next village, and the Med's only 80km away.

There's no shortage of culture either: at hand are the historic chateaux and bastides (walled towns) of the Rouergue, the Templar and Hospitaller sites of the Larzac, and the Cistercian abbey of Sylvanes, with its respected summer festival of sacred music.

For refreshment, try the local delicacies: the famous cheese of Roquefort, charcuterie from Lacaune and wines of Faugeres.

Need more inspiration? Just take a look at what's on offer on the sites of the three neighbouring counties: the Aveyron, Tarn and Hérault.

There are also occasional activities in the village, especially during the summer.

A delightful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spot in which to spend some time of total relaxation in the middle of beautiful countryside. We stayed in Anais house, a well equipped modern house with fabulous views from the spacious veranda. David and Carlos are charming and helpful hosts. There is plenty to do in the neighbourhood. If it all gets too hot, return to Blanc and enjoy some time in the beautiful swimming pool. We can highly recommend a stay in Blanc and look forward to returning.

une belle halte à Blanc sur Sanctus

  • 5 of 5

J'avais recherché un havre de paix, un endroit tranquille dans lequel poser les valises, le stress, la hâte et laisser couler le temps ... l'Azais a répondu à mon attente... C'est proche de tout : les routes sont belles, les villes (les journaux, les commerçants et internet si besoin) et les chemins de randonnées ne sont pas loin. C'est loin de tout en même temps : de l'Azaïs, on n'entend pas les bruits en provenance des autres gîtes, ni même les voitures. La nuit surtout. Ce silence tel qu'on ne l'imagine pas ; les étoiles au-dessus, telles qu'on ne les voit plus beaucoup... si peu de bruit la nuit, les oiseaux à peine au lever du jour, les grillons parfois, des biches qui se perdent ... et le vent qui dessine du fait de l'allée éclairée des ombres magiques sur les arbres environnants. Le gîte est esthétique, beau, apaisant, simple et fonctionnel... c'est un très bel endroit pour se défaire quelques jours des bruits et de la fureur du monde, tout en y restant présent. C'est ce que je cherchais. Merci à David et Carlos de la bienveillance et de l'accueil. claude fluck
