About the property

Bars, Restos, Boutiques, Supermarkets, Big Sunday Market, & Sports activities Free parking. Bikes provided. Mature garden & external terrace

NB (The property is fitted with a large upright fridge/freezer with smoked glass doors. Therefore acceptance of children is subject to confirmation (& a higher refundable security deposit charged).

Unusually quiet location for a town house, with free, shady parking outside the door. Garden to relax in or step outside the gates, & wonder around the cobbled streets of St. Antonin (less than 1 mins walk away) where you will find everything you need.

The medieval town centre of St. Antonin Noble Val is right on your doorstep.

Free, shaded off street parking is available directly in front of the house.

This is also a Great base, from which to explore the many bastide towns & villages within easy driving distance.

The best of both worlds : Being so close to town (for morning bread / croissants / papers) & all shops, the Sunday morning market coming right to the door, yet less than 5 mins drive will bring you into the countryside with dramatic views - There are also numerous walks from the doorstep (Tourist Office has a complete guide to these).

Nearby are Medieval villages, Bastide towns, Chateaux, Abbeys, Churches and magnificent natural sites of outstanding beauty; whether it be wooded valleys or the meandering River Aveyron with its dramatic gorges.

Also wine growing regions.

ACTIVITIES

Horse riding, canoeing, cycling, fishing, bird watching, rock climbing, tree wire, paragliding, wine tasting, museums, tennis and of course walking.

An afternoon's excursion by canoe through the Aveyron Gorge is considered a 'must' by nearly all guests.

Golf: Golf is a delight in this part of France ~ courses are often clear, even in the high season.

There is an excellent18~hole golf course at the beautiful city of Albi (45 min)/another smaller golf course @ Gaillac (40 min)

Why not take the whole family for a half day visit to the medieval town of Albi, to explore the boutiques and cafes, and then meet up at one of the many restaurants in town. There is also a public water park @ Albi for the children.

2 adults bikes are available on request (there are also hire shops in town if further bikes are required)

About Jayne

This region is just my favourite place to be, to relax, unwind and take pleasure in the nature and beauty of the surroundings, and the wonderful slower pace of life.

That, combined with the many summer events, night markets & weekly markets makes this a perfect place to enjoy everything that is on offer.

Jayne purchased this house in 2007

Why Jayne chose Tarn-et-Garonne

Fabulous to be right in town, & in an unusually quiet spot at the end of the square with shady parking just outside.

The house has the added advantage of a good size, walled garden to enjoy & relax, providing privacy and sunshine.

less than 5 mins walk from the Public (heated) swimming pool, so its possible to have an early refreshing swim before most peoples day even begins!

What makes this house unique

A perfect location to enjoy a great social life & all summer fetes / night markets of the town, plus all other benefits the town has to offer, yet in a relaxed quiet location.

Off road (free) Parking immediately outside a definite benefit too.

Some Great (marked) bike rides or numerous walks from the town & beyond.

Highly recommend property, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property, in a great location close to local amenities. The house has everything you might need, it's a real home, tastefully maintained and Jayne is the perfect host - on hand if necessary but never intrusive. The garden is beautifully kept and provides an ideal space for sunbathing and eating alfresco. It is a short walk to the shops, the swimming pool and the pretty medieval centre of St Antonin with its cafes and restaurants. The Sunday market is right on the doorstep. Other activities include walking and canoeing and there are numerous impressive hilltop villages within a short drive, including Puycelsi, Najac, Penne and Bruniquel. Highly recommended.

What a gem of a property.

  • 5 of 5

One of the best houses we have stayed in in France, fully equipped with anything you could need truly a home from home. Being a short walk into town to great cafes and shops is a real bonus. Jayne the owner is very helpful and knowledgable about the local area and is only too pleased to be of help. We had a lovely holiday and are looking forward to returning in the future.

This area was at the heart of ‘The Hundred Years War’ and touched by the Cathars, Huguenots and the Knights Templar.

All properties are just short drives from Medieval towns steeped in this history and still enjoy a quiet simplicity, together with friendly local people who have a warmth to match their lovely countryside. (Apart from mid July - mid Aug when the area is extremely popular with visitors), it is unspoilt by the over-crowding of tourists experienced nowadays in many parts of France.

Nearby are Medieval villages, Bastide towns, Chateaux, Abbeys, Churches and magnificent natural sites of outstanding beauty; whether it be wooded valleys or the meandering River Aveyron with its dramatic gorges.

Also wine growing regions ~ ideal for a half day excursion to sample some of the local wines.

ACTIVITIES

Horse riding, canoeing, cycling, fishing, bird watching, rock climbing, tree wire, paragliding, wine tasting, museums, tennis and of course walking. Golf is available at Albi (18-hole delightful course), also a water park for children.

An afternoon's excursion by canoe through the Aveyron Gorge is considered a 'must' by nearly all guests.

A number of local villages and towns have interesting and colourful markets.

Be sure not to miss the local market in St Antonin held on Sunday mornings and Villefranche de Rouergue on Thursdays.

For more information on the area, please visit website :

http://www.france-voyage.com/guide/tarn-et-garonne.htm

CORDES SUR CIEL : a medieval bastide town whose history includes the Cathars and Huguenots;

ALBI with its Toulouse Lautrec Museum;

NAJAC voted one of the most beautiful villages in France;

CAHOR & GAILLAC, for their wines;

ST. ANTONIN NOBLE VAL : fabulous in its own right ; Montricoux ~ the Château, an old seat of the Templar Knights and Bruniquel - all of which are well worth a visit.

The larger towns house excellent restaurants to cater for all budgets.

WALKING / CYCLING

Cycling has become increasingly popular in this area. Guides are available from the local Tourist Offices - you can also get the french equivalent of the Ordinance Survey maps at local newsagents. There are numerous walks / cycle tracks, clearly marked - to suit all abilities. St. Antonin has its own local Walking Club.

Spring & autumn are the very best times to visit for walkers & cyclists.
