About the Owner

I live in England with my husband and daughter near to the Spa town of Tunbridge Wells. We have always loved holidaying in France and it has been our dream to spend more time in this wonderful country and to own a French property.

From the Owner

We bought the house nine years ago to spend more time with Gary's sister and her family who live near to Lautrec. They look after Champagnol when we are not there and the beautiful gardens are down to all their hard work! We like the area as there is so much to see and do yet it hasn't been spoilt by too many tourists visiting the area. Carcassone, Cordes-sur-ciel, Roquefort (the famous cheese) Millau Bridge and the vineyards of Gaillac are all easily accessible.

Activity and Interests


Calais - 620 miles, with the vast majority on autoroute. Toulouse Blagnac airport is just over an hour away, Rodez airport (Ryan Air) an hour and a quarter and Carcassonne airport an hour and a half away. A car is essential.

The Gites are on a no through road yet close enough to the main road to make it very easy to get into Realmont or Albi for their markets, cafes, shops and wonderful restaurants.

  • Notes on accommodation: Oriole and Rossignol Gites are basically the same although Rossignol has a slightly smaller mezzanine area than Oriole but the ground floor is slightly bigger in Rossignol than Oriole. Due to the mezzanine area, the gites are not suitable for children. Outside: Each gite has its own lawned garden area, BBQ, and garden furniture. The heated swimming pool is just a few yards from the gites and is surrounded by paved terraces and lawns. Pool side beds and parasols are provided as well as table and chairs. Two magnificant lime trees provide additional shade if required.
