About the property

Oriole Gite & Rossignol Gite

Our two luxury gites, Oriole and Rossignol, are set in a peaceful, rural location & have been created from a barn adjoining our house. They are a 10 minute drive from the market town of Realmont and 20 minutes from Albi, the capital of the Tarn. Realmont has a lovely market, shops, cafes and a number of good restaurants. The wine region Gaillac is only 30 minutes away with Toulouse Blagnac airport is just over an hour away.

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.

ALISON SHIELS purchased this cottage in 2006

Why ALISON SHIELS chose Fauch

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Amazing property, clean, bright and very comfortable ample room for 2 people.

  • 5 of 5

Almost a home from home downstairs quite modern: a kitchen supplied with many cooking utensils, a micro wave, toaster and washing machine. The bathroom had a over bath power shower, but it was the size of the bath that took us by surprize...it was very huge! The living/dinning room was roomy and relaxing to spend the evening. They also supplied and interesting mix of books and a DVD player to play your own music on. Upstairs amongst the open wooden beams(beautiful) is the bedroom in 'Oriole' we had a dressing room first (great to store all the cases) along with hanging space and big dressing table with lots of draws. In the roof is a velux window if you like to watch the stars. Outside of ' Oriole' you have a small private garden with table and chairs to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or to sit and enjoy the view. The grounds and distant views are breath taking trees, fields, hills and more trees as far as the eye can see. The 'sound of silence' will ring in your ears as you relax on loungers or chairs by the very inviting pool or take a dip or swim in it sparkling warm blue water.

Location wise it is situated in a very good place to visit Toulous, Albi, Castres to name a few. Castres is a fantastic place to eat, many places French restaurants, including a square with fountain, to eat, but also where you'll find food from around the world.

The owners supply very detailed instructions as how to find the Gites which is very helpful when your tired after a long drive. Also a book with lots of information of what to do and places to visit. Oh! mustn't forget you must visit 'lac de la bancaile' only about 10 minutes from the Gites just to look at the breath taking scenery or have a dip in the warm fresh water.

All in all we had a fantastic 2 week visit in August 2017 and look forward to visiting again soon.

Vacances très agréables et reposantes.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le calme, la verdure et le confort.

Très bon rapport Qualité / Prix.

Le soleil nous à un peu fait défaut et n'avons que très peu profité de la piscine qui est tout à fait superbe.

Lovely Gite

  • 5 of 5

Would agree with all of the positive comments listed on these gites. We stopped in the one called Oriole and it had everything you would want. It was clean, well equipped and with the pool and the great weather we had a fabulous stay.
