Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed a fantastic two weeks at La Vielle Ferme in August 2014. The house was one of the very best we have stayed in over many years of holidaying in France. The house has been refurbished to a high spec with a beautiful kitchen, outdoor eating area and large swimming pool. The owners were extremely helpful throughout our stay and the bed linen, towels and all amenities provided were to a very high standard. Not only is the house beautiful but the surrounding area is stunning with many places to visit for families. There were 6 adults and 6 children in our party and it was perfect for us.

A hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

That time had come to plan a holiday for 2017 with our ‘bestie’ friends, two families together (8 children in total) for a holiday that was going to create lifelong memories. After many an evening of scouring the net looking at French holiday accommodation we stumbled across ‘La Vieille Ferme’ which was not only available at our required dates, but it was also within our budget. Andrew and Diana, the property owners, answered our questions quickly and we booked. Finally the day came to start our holiday - as we stepped out of the car and everyone started jumping for joy that the trip was finally complete, you instantly felt the warm air around, heard the crickets and looked up to the sky to see the most amazing star constellations including the Milky Way.

The Farmhouse is exactly as described on the web, although much larger than we expected (more than enough room for two families of 12) you could see first-hand the attention to detail that Andrew and Diana had undergone when restoring this beautiful rustic farmhouse. We had everything we needed including a lovely kitchen area, more than enough cutlery and all the usual gadgets. The bathrooms were perfect, tastefully finished with modern shower equipment (nice pressure). We had an amazing time visiting the local towns including ‘St Antonin’ where we spent a whole day Kayaking 10km along the river Aveyron taking in the beautiful gorge backdrop with huge limestone cliff faces that shoot up into the blue sky from crystal clear water teaming with fish.In Laguépie they have inflatables on the river that are free to use. Cap’Découverte, a 40 min drive away, really topped the holiday experience, great value for money offering water skiing, kayaking, toboggan, go karting, mountain biking, pedals, aerial runway etc. Najac and Albi were really pretty and there always seemed to be something going on which made for a nice surprise.You can walk to the two boulangeries in the local villages of Varen and Verfeil 1km and 3km away but will need a car to drive to St Antonin where there is a medium sized Carrefour which stocks most items you would expect to see in the UK.Getting to know Andrew and Diana was really nice and we all felt that they went out of their way to try and ensure we had a great time and on the morning we left Andrew, Diana and Twiglet (their gorgeous dog) came up to wave us off as they readied themselves for their next visitors. We do hope to see them again one of these days, perhaps back in Blighty.

Fabulous French Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse is exceptional in every way. Everything you need (and more) is there and is good quality and well looked after. The owners, Andrew and Diana, go out of their way to ensure that you are well looked after and are a great source information about the local area if you need it.

The kitchen and dining area are fabulous and great for entertaining and the pool and garden outstanding.

We have stayed in many holiday rentals across Europe and this has to be one of the very best. Recommend it 100%.

Fantastic stay in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house, superbly renovated and very well kitted out in an absolutely stunning part of France. Andrew and Diana were incredibly helpful and kind from offering jeep tours of the surrounding countryside to expert expat advice on moving to France, which we all wanted to do the minute we set foot in La Vielle Ferme.

Truly a stunning property and within a few minutes of Saint Antonin Noble Val and a short drive to many beautiful bastide towns.

Not to be faulted. A wonderful holiday and we will most definitely be back!

Fabulous Gite in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely farmhouse surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside. The interior is very well appointed and comfortable - even better than the pictures suggest. The highlight is the exterior with the pool and covered barn which provided us with the opportunity for hours of relaxation and a convivial place to enjoy the wonderful climate, local wine and lots of BBQs

Super house and very friendly, helpfull owners!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the house in the summer of 2017 with 6 adults and 5 children (between 2 and 7 years old)

We really enjoyed our stay because the house has everything we needed:

- Big pool with fence and alarm

- Big house with 6 bedrooms

- Big kitchen with all the things you need to cook for a big number of people

The fence around the pool and the 'built-in' alarm is definitly a big plus point when you have children. The gate to the pool is also a childproof locked gate.

The kids have also a big garden to play in it, so entertainment enough!

The 6 bedrooms are really big enough.

Long story short: a wonderfull house where you can enjoy the silence and the wonderful views!

Last but not least: the owners, Diana and Andrew, are very friendly & very helpfull people. If we had questions, there were always there to help, they were always reachable to give advise.

We have visit a lot of houses in France, and this was one of the best!

I cannot recommend La Vielle Ferme highly enough. We have stayed in this beautiful region of France the last few years, and this is our best experience. Andrew and Diana could not have been better hosts. If they offer a tour of the surrounding area in their 4x4, grab it!

The house is amazing, website photos do not do it justice. Our group consisted of three families and the way the house is designed it is easy to section off into seperate areas for privacy. Everything inside and outside the house is finished to an exceptional standard, plenty of kitchen utensils, towels etc. which is unusual in rental properties.

There are lots of fantastic towns and villages nearby to visit, the water sports and mountain- biking in St. Antonin worth checking out. Cordes-sur-ciel is one of the most beautiful villages we've been to and the closest village Varen is lovely too, it has a fantastic river for swimming in. Andrew and Diana provided us with lots of information and are so enthusiastic about the french way of life.

We hope to return again soon..
