Hi, I'm Paulo and it would be our pleasure to welcome you to Xauxou soon! I live both here in France and in Brazil with Peter and together we rescued Xauxou from falling to pieces. It was love at first sight when we saw the house for the first time in 2006. It has been a great journey doing this and now we are delighted to provide peaceful and relaxing holidays in the glorious Tarn countryside to our friends and guests from all over the world! Year purchased: 2007.
Paulo da Silva purchased this farmhouse in 2007

We stayed in this lovely property as a party of 10 celebrating our father's 80th birthday. The size of the property was perfect, it is very large and there are places to hide away and get lost so you are not underneath each other's feet! The decoration of the property is very stylish and done with flair. The bedrooms and un-suite bathrooms are all gorgeous and very large. There are 2 living rooms so that children can escape the adults and watch a movie in their own living room! the kitchen is amazing and fully equipped with every utensil or piece of equipment you could ever need. The pool area contains all amenities so you can spend many days just lounging around the pool, there is even a fridge by the pool for the cold drinks and ice creams! Highly recommended and would love to go back again for another holiday. The booking process was very easy and our hosts were very attentive and responsive during the whole process. Castres is a lovely typical French town where we visited for breakfast once morning. Lautrec is very close and another unique little town on a hill which is definitely worth a visit. Carcassonne is a beautiful, historical, fortified town and a must see. Great supermarkets close by.
If 2 cars drive past Xauxou, you're witnessing the Montfa rush hour, so tranquil and relaxing is this residence. Having spent 2 wonderful summer holidays there over the past 14 months, I can unreservedly recommend this place. Lots of quirky features, but all so well thought-through. This is a great destination for families (we stayed with another family of 4, making 8 in total), and it's at its best when it's a hive of activity, with kids running around the extensive and sprawling grounds, adults enjoying a glass of local rose and some Realmont market-sourced olives in one of the many suntraps tucked around the house. Lots (well, enough) to see locally, and within 90 mins by car; particular highlights being Carcassonne and Lautrec. We'll be back, for sure!
