About the Property

Countryside house close to Espalion

Peacefulness, genuineness and charm are the characteristics of this old farmhouse.
The large welcoming living room is organised around the stone fireplace. The chestnut ceiling warms up the room. A splendid “monastery” table awaits the guests. This is the perfect place for holidays with your family or friends.
In front of the living room is a private courtyard perfect to enjoy your meals around the barbecue. The region is renowned for the quality of its meat, the “Aubrac beef”.
From June 1st to September 30th the swimming pool is open; it is heated thanks to the solar panels you can see on the aerial photo. Sheltered by a natural wall of rocks, it boasts a unique view on the Lot Valley.
The owners live in the house next door, they have donkeys for hikes, and occasionally they rent them. In love with this region and its heritage, they will give you some ideas of excursions. A hiking trail starts from the house.

Farendès is located at the foot of the Aubrac Mountains, bare plateaus with endless spaces, final point of numerous hikes. At the end of May you can see the transhumance in the Lot Valley, which brings herds of cows from the whole department to spend the summer there.

The Lot Valley has a milder climate and buildings with heavy slate roofs. Saint-Côme and Estaing, nearby, are among the “most beautiful villages of France”.

Further South is the Causses with golden limestone constructions.

Rouergue has kept numerous castles or fortified buildings, often built in the XV century.

The proximity of the town of Espalion gives you access to the numerous animations, concerts, conferences…

As for gastronomy, you will have a large choice, from inns to star rated restaurants.
