Pour passer de belles vacances dans une jolie maison et dans une belle et reposante nature.
Il s'agit d'une jolie maison, conviviale et agréable à vivre qui se situe dans une très belle région avec plein d'endroits à visiter; la piscine est très agréable et la vue vaste et belle. Le cadre permet de passer des vacances détendantes.
Thanks for your kind words Emmanuelle. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay in the Aveyron.
an absolutely lovely place!
lots to do
we would love to come back !
Jasmin you have been a pleasure to deal with and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I would certainly welcome you again, perhaps next year?
Très belle maison de charme
"Les Portails" est une résidence de campagne super charmante ! Le style rustique et chaleureux nous a beaucoup plu. La cuisine attenante au jardin ensoleillé est très appréciable pur un séjour d'été.
Nous avons séjourné à 6 adultes, et avons tous beaucoup apprécié la maison ! De plus, les équipements sont très confortables, et nous avions tous les consommables nécessaires à notre séjour, à disposition dans la maison. On s'y sent comme chez soi à peine arrivés !
Nous n'avons pas eu besoin de l'intervention d'un tiers, mais de toute façon un Monsieur passe régulièrement pour vérifier la piscine.
N'oublions pas la superbe vue sur la vallée depuis la piscine justement !
I am delighted that Johanna and her party enjoyed their stay in the Aveyron and appreciated my home. I would be very pleased to have them as renters again in the future - johanna etait tres sympa.
Beautiful and tranquil setting, large garden and pool. Interior a bit dated and lots of flies
The house is in a gorgeous and tranquil setting with lovely views across the garden and valley beyond. There is a lovely big garden with a nice (unheated) pool. There were lots of kids toys available which was perfect for our 2 year old. There were bikes which we used to cycle the pretty local roads (which were quite hilly, but I liked that...!)
The kitchen in the house had everything you needed and all the appliances worked well. There wasnt a lot of space in the kitchen and lots of the rooms were very dark and a bit dingy and the decor was dated. This property is best enjoyed when you want to spend time outside. There were also lots and lots of flies which was a bit annoying sometimes.
There were also a lot of rules and requirements for guests which in other houses we've been to have been done for you such as uncovering the pool, getting all the garden furniture out, cleaning the house etc but as long as you are happy to do that then its not problem.
Overall i would recommend this house.
Thank you very much for your feedback, which is very helpful. We are undertaking significant refurbishments during this winter and we will take your comments into account. We agree with you about the rules for the swimming pool but we have to comply with French Health and Safety Regulations which were introduced in 2006. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Oubax and that you would recommend it to others. We look forward to seeing you again in the Aveyron.
A very charming house in a beautiful region
We recently enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful house. The house itself is full of character, and beautifully situated in a rural environment with very nice views on the surrounding hills. The property has all the facilities you need (including good WiFi - vital for our kids ;-)) and is very comfortable. The garden is huge, with enough trees to offer shadow during a canicule. Shops, markets, restaurants nearby in villages Sanvensa (5 min) and La Fouillade (15 min).
We enjoyed a nice balance of exploration and relaxation during our stay (with a lot of sun), and would really recommend this house. After 2 weeks, it felt a bit like we were leaving home instead of returning home.
What better comment could you have made than to say our beloved home in the Aveyron feels like home. Thank you Philippe
Fantastic house in the beautiful Aveyron
We spent 2 weeks in Oubax & had a wonderful holiday. The house is lovely, very comfortable & certainly has the best equipped kitchen of any rental property I’ve ever stayed in. We didn’t use the TV but it was available with English & French stations & the WiFi was excellent inside & out.
The terrace, garden & pool overlook beautiful countryside which was everchanging during our visit as the farmers harvested their fields.
Although rural, shopping facilities are within easy driving distance, & there are plenty of restaurants to suit all tastes. The area has many great markets selling such fabulous fresh produce that you want to buy everything & take it back to the house & start cooking.
As well as visiting the markets, beautiful bastides & the rivers, it’s a great area for crafts - we visited a number of artisan potters & jewellery makers & watched them at work before buying.
I would highly recommend Les Portails to anyone looking to visit this region of France. It makes an excellent base for exploring but is also perfect for staying put. It’s such a good place to relax, have a swim, cook local produce, drink local wine & eat on the terrace looking out at the countryside. After all of that you sit for hours and stargaze.
Thank you so much for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Sanvensa er den nærmeste landsbyen to mil unna, som har en baker, en barrestaurant, en vinhandler og en frisør. La Fouillade ligger fem miles unna, og har en utmerket bakere, to barer, en slakter, en landhandel og et nytt supermarked fra Intermarche. I juli og august har La Fouillade et lite lørdagsmarked for lokale produsenter av mat og vin.
Villefranche de Rouergue ligger åtte miles unna. Det er en ‘Bastide Royale’ eller befestet by bygget av Alphonse de Poitiers under hundreårs krigen. Senteret har et bredt utvalg av tradisjonelle butikker og det unødvendige torsdagsmarkedet i Place Notre Dame. Lokale mennesker og turister strømmer til byen for å kjøpe lokale råvarer eller bare for å absorbere den fantastiske atmosfæren. Det er også tre supermarkeder, så vel som andre store butikker utenfor byen.
De lokale vinene er Cahors, Gaillac og Marcillac, så vel som andre mindre produsenter. Det er mange restauranter i Villefranche så vel som fire i Najac og en i St Andre de Najac mindre enn åtte mil unna.
