Property

Updated: 28-Nov-2016
Country Cottage near Gaillac, 30mins from Toulouse, Pool, WIFI, Sat TV, Sleeps 5

Stunningly situated on top of a hill overlooking the rolling unspoilt Tarn countryside, Les Tournesols is only a short walk from a small village and is 5/10 mins from three pituresque market towns with access to all amenities. It is also only 20mins away from Albi and 30mins from Toulouse. Les Tournesols sleeps 2/5 in great comfort in 3 bedrooms with 1 bathroom and 1 modern walk-in shower room and 2 wcs. The spacious open-plan living & dining room, with WIFI internet and Sky SatTV. Three large windows look onto the pool and beyond to spectacular views. The south facing terrace is sheltered, totally private and has big table, chairs, large pergola, and a stone-built barbecue. A fragrant lavender path leads to the very large swimming pool 12x6m (40’x20’) (with saline water which is much kinder to the skin...!). There is a great number of poolside loungers around the pool, which has a southerly aspect enjoying sunshine all day long.
