About the property

Enjoy peace and tranquility at home with medieval towns to explore close by

Mas de Gibert is an old stone farmhouse standing in 3 acres of its own grounds and surrounded by open countryside, Throughout we have endeavored to create an ambience that is in keeping with its essential character whilst providing comfort and originality.

The farmhouse is beautifully cool and spacious with accommodation on two floors.

Stone steps lead up from the flower filled courtyard taking you into a fully equipped kitchen with dining table and chairs and onto the lounge with wood burning stove, comfy chairs and sofa. From the lounge there is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom ( toilet, shower, sink.There is another door off the lounge onto a large balcony for outdoor eating and relaxing with a staircase leading through a garden to the pool for your sole use

The entrance to the ground floor is off the courtyard. As you enter there is a room with 2 single beds. Leading off this room there is a bathroom (bath, sink,toilet and shower) and another double bedroom with French windows.

Outdoors there is a variety of places to sit and relax with much mature planting. There is a flower lined path to the pool area which has security gates. The pool using a salt system is 10mx5m with large rectangular steps. The depth of the shallow end is approx 1 mtr with a deep end of just under 2 mtrs. There is a large expanse of terrace around the pool surrounded by flowerbeds with recliners, parasols, table and chairs with a hammock in a shady corner.

About Alison Saundry

Myself and my partner live and work here in France and have been gradually renovating Mas de Gibert.

We live in a barn which adjoins but faces away from the farmhouse with a separate entrance and garden where I grow organic seasonal produce among the flowers. Please feel free to pick anything available at the time of your stay.

Alison Saundry purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Just the perfect place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Gibert is all charm and tranquility. The farmhouse is very comfortable and full of character. The pool area is magnificent and the whole property is full of interesting trees and plants, with lots of colour and a wide variety of interesting smells! We especially liked the fig trees and the plum trees, and of course the vegetable and herb gardens. We were a family of five, including small children, and we all had such a fabulous time we hardly moved from the property all week. (Nb: we did spot the comment in the last review about the suitability of the property for small children, but to be honest we didn't see this as an issue at all. The steps between the two floors are easily negotiated and if we had had any qualms about our smallest child being downstairs we would have taken the double room next to the room where the single beds are rather than the one upstairs.)

A corner of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property was simply beautiful! The pool area was so lovely and well equipped as was the whole property. It would not be suitable for a family with young children as you have to go outside and down steps to the 2 other bedrooms, but apart from that, this property really is a little piece of paradise, set in the most stunning area of France and set in a small hamlet and not overlooked in the slightest. Very private.

Not sure I should tell you

  • 5 of 5

This is my happy place. Don't book in case it means I can't get in. You'd only find it too relaxing, special and beautiful...

A spécial place

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Mas Gibert for several years and would recommend it without hesitation. Over the years we have stayed as a couple, and with the whole family. The setting is idyllic. The gite is tastefully furnished and decorated and is always immaculate. The real charm of Mas Gibert is the peace and quiet. There are several spots to hide away and read or snooze, in the hammock, on the balcony or by the pool. If you should want to venture out St Antonin-Noble-Val Sunday market is a must. There several stunning medieval hill top villages for markets, lunch or dinner including Najac, Belcastle and Corde. The more energetic have access to bikes and canoeing from St Antonin on the Averyon. This is a very special place.

This is a region that is known for its tranquility,beautiful scenery and villages of historic interest. St Antonin Noble Val (20 mins away) is a lovely medieval town with a great deal of architectural interest, which holds a market every Sunday morning selling an abundance of fresh local produce, a memorable experience. This village hads been used as a backdrop for 2 international films. Caylus, another medieval village just 10 k away has many shops and restaurants. Villefranche de Rouergue (25mins) is one of the "Bastide" towns which has another wonderful market on Thursday mornings.

Within a few kilometers of Gibert there are lovely villages and an ancient Abbey that holds .contemporary art exhibitions and concerts.

The wine regions of Gaillac and Cahors are within easy reach, wonderful to explore. The well known city of Albi (50 mins) and the beautiful hilltop towns of Najac (20 mins) and Corde Sur Ciel (30 mins) are places not to be missed.Fishing,golf,horse riding and canoeing are among the many activities available in the area.
