About the property

Whether you are after an action packed adventure holiday or a peaceful relaxing get away this is the perfect location for you.

The property offers a unique blend of modern contemporary living whilst retaining its original character features such as exposed solid oak beams, original wooden floors and thick stone walls.

The farmhouse has been renovated to a high standard throughout, it’s fully insulated, with a new heating system, electrics, plumbing and roof. Spread over 3 floors with 240m sq of living space.

On the ground floor there is a large Kitchen diner with fully fitted kitchen, separate utility room with washing machine and dryer and a beautiful day sitting room with original stone walls and wood burning stove. An additional snug winter sitting room/ tv room with built in library space. Modern washroom and shower. The original solid wood stair case leads you the 1st floor with 3 large double bedrooms and a stunning family bathroom with free standing bath, large shower and double sink. 2 Further staircases lead you to the converted loft rooms, one master bedroom with en suite and another spacious double room.

The outside courtyard area leads through a stone doorway (Converted from an 18th century bread oven) into a beautiful garden overlooking the rolling countryside.

The house is well equipped and has everything you might need for a family holiday. There is a range cooker, microwave, a fully erected wooden cot. Outside there is table tennis table, swing ball, football goal, large trampoline, sun loungers and a patio that gets the evening sun for those sun downers! There is also a large barbeque.

Situated within a small hamlet and only 3 km from the beautiful village of La Selve, the location is ideal as although rural, it isn’t isolated. The friendly neighbours in the hamlet add to the charm.

About The Owner

Hi. My brother and I own the farmhouse spend a lot of time over there enjoying the area and exploring. My brother and his family moved over to live in and renovate the farmhouse over a 3 year period. He is a builder and put a lot of care and attention into restoring the house while maintaining it's original features. We have all spent many happy years in the area and hope you also enjoy if you book!

A lovely property, with good grounds, an ideal place for a relaxing holiday.

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, we'll equipped house, set in a peaceful rural location. The owner was very easy to deal with to organise the trip and dates, which helped make the whole experience stress free.

This is a lovely location, with access to a range of different days out. A car is needed, but the garden is big enough to enjoy days at home relaxing. The house is well equipped with all you need.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Sehr schönes südfranzösisches Anwesen

  • 3 of 5

Die Gegend ist ein Traum. Mit Albi ist eine tolle Stadt gut erreichbar, der See in Villefranche de Panat einladend und auch sonst ist im Umkreis von 1 Autostunde jede Menge Abenteuer möglich (z.B. Klettern auf den Grand Causses, Kanu auf dem Tarn ...). Tolle Ausstattung des Hauses für Ruhetage, insbesondere die Spiele; Dart, Tischtennis, Grill, Kicker. Auch die Zimmer und Anzahl der Bäder sind perfekt. Wer Ruhe und Entspannung sucht auch mit Kindern, ist hier gut aufgehoben.

Eine Spülmaschine wäre wünschenswert. Da das Haus offenbar nicht durchgängig vermietet ist, war die eine oder andere Staubschicht oder Spinnengewebe beim Putzen übersehen worden. Da mussten wir hier und da etwas nachbessern.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Verena and glad you enjoyed your stay. We will feed back these comments about the cleaning to the cleaner to make sure it's improved for future guests. We've not had similar feedback from others, so hoping she just had an off day! Thanks

Grande maison accueillante

  • 4 of 5

Cette maison est idéale pour une semaine entre amis.

La cuisine est fonctionnelle et vaste (malgré le manque de matériel pour cuisiner et l'absence de lave-vaisselle). Il y a deux salons douillets dont l'un avec une cheminée et l'autre avec un écran XXXL. Les chambres sont grandes et très confortables. Deux des trois salles de bains sont très bien équipées (dont une avec un baignoire qui appelle à la détente). Les enfants pourront s'amuser avec le babyfoot (pas de compétition malheureusement pour les adultes), les jouets et la table de ping pong.

L'emplacement n'est pas forcément central en Aveyron mais vous pouvez vous balader à Brousse le château, dans la vallée du Tarn, Albi, Saint Izaire, les lacs de Pareloups et Villefranche...

Pas de réseau mais du wifi vous serez donc au calme !

La propriétaire est disponible et répond rapidement à vos questions.

Bon séjour
