High quality barn conversion in a beautiful rural hilltop village
- english, french
We are a laid-back Scottish couple who have taken early retirement to live our dream. Keen on the outdoor life, we love walking around the fantastic countryside surrounding our home.
Owner purchased this Barn in 2008
Why Owner chose Itzac
Looking for a view and we found one - down a small valley to the Hilltop village of Castelnau de Montmiral, and on crisp days the Pyrenees reaching up behind over 100 miles away, vineyards, sunflowers....
What makes this Barn unique
We are on the edge of one of the most beautiful and well-maintained villages in the area, only 10 minutes from the medieval charm of Cordes sur Ciel and Castelnau de Montmiral. Albi is less than 30 minutes and Toulouse less than an hour. Walk through the vineyards to our local vineyard to taste the less known Gaillac appellation wine.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Just as described. We found nothing wanting at the property and the owners, Colin & Janet, were on hand if needed but also discrete and low-key. A lovely area to visit and the house and pool were just right for afternoon relaxing. We will visit again for sure.
Beautiful property, fantastic scenery, perfect hosts.
Thanks very much to Colin and Janet for a wonderful stay at your property. Everything was fantastic and any tiny hiccups were resolved straight away. The property was brilliant for our group, 6 adults and a 6 month old baby. We’d recommend this to any large group wanting to stay in an idyllic area of the French countryside. Thanks again, Paul, Adele and the rest
Beautifully restored barn, fabulous surroundings, great hosts. Perfect!
It's a beautifully converted beam with lots of original features. Beds were really comfortable (a huge plus, we all slept magnificently). Lots of cute features such as a library of books and dvds. The pool is perfect. Great size and shallow enough for adults to stand up to their chest in, which is great for swimming and playing dumb team ball games alike. There was absolutely nothing that I could add that this property is missing, it was just perfect.
The property has been converted to a very high standard and great care has been taken to preserve features and the "feel" of the barn conversion. The situation is idillic and peaceful but with amenities close to hand. The owners were happy to share their local knowledge and advice when asked but do not intrude on your holiday. Overall a brilliant place to stay.
Fantastic gite in an ideal location for a quiet relaxing holiday. The gite was very well equipped and Jan and Colin were excellent hosts. Close to a host of medieval villages and hour's drive to Toulouse. Cahors is also well worth a visit, which is easily reachable from the gite.
cadre exceptionnel pour une semaine en famille
Nous avons passé une super semaine avec nos 2 enfants (6 ans et 8 mois) chez Colin et Janet. La maison est très agréable (reste fraiche malgré la chaleur) et jouit d'une vue exceptionnelle sur la campagne du Tarn. La piscine est top pour se rafraichir en fin de journée! La maison est idéalement située pour aller visiter tous les magnifiques villages environnants (Cordes sur Ciel, Penne...) ou faire des activités avec les enfants (canoé, accrobranche...). Nous reviendrons avec plaisir!
