Overview

About the property

Farmhouse in Aguts, Tarn, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Peaceful Location, 5 Min Walk From The Woods, 10 Min Drive From Nearest Town And Many Attractions!

Our house has been recently renovated. It is fully furnished but the exterior has been left in its original state to preserve the charm of the property. It is situated on the outskirts of a tiny village called Aguts! The people in the area are welcoming and will stop you for a chat if they see you going for a walk into the woods. The house is perched and is looking down a big field. There is a private lake nearby which you can see from the house. It is very quiet and the neighbours are extremely welcoming even knowing they are far away!

About Cathy Vaissieres

Hello everyone!

Here is a picture of my little family! What is there to say about us? Well, we live in England, even knowing I am a French national. Our son is fluent in French and spends most of his holidays in France with mami and papi! I am a teacher in a secondary school so I try to make the most of my time off. We love to travel and have recently come back from New York! Next stop should be Vegas!

Our house is a family house so there will be family pictures etc... We have not set the house up to rent it out as we would prefer to consider the whole experience like if friends were staying in our house. Clearly the price reflects this!

We hope to meet you soon!!!

Why Cathy Vaissieres chose Tarn

My parents live 3 km from the property and it is in a lovely rural location. I grew up in this area and have always been drawn back to it. Our son loves it and has been building the best memories any child would dream of over the years!

Our house is in the countryside on the outskirts of a tiny village called Aguts. It is 7km from Puylaurens and 12 km from Revel and Saint Ferreol! These three little towns have so much to offer! In fact the market in Revel has been voted the best market in France! Puylaurens is so authentic, a place where the real French people live! And Saint Ferreol is just to die for with its lake and waterfalls! It takes 2 hours to walk around the lake!

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is very comfortable and clean. There are a few quirks which gives the house a lot of charm. There is a lovely open fireplace to make you feel romantic. During the summer in the evenings, you will be able to hear the frogs from the nearby lake which you can see from the house. Traffic on the road nearby is practically non existent.

Lovely accomodation in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very reasonable and easy to deal with. The house is beautifully renovated and the big kitchen/dinning/living room area is fantastic for group holidays. Lots of space to enjoy, relax and spend time together. Highly recomended.

Lovely and peaceful

We enjoyed a lovely stay. The house is spacious with some lovely features. The setting is quiet and peacefull, with some great views over the valley.

Directions and the advice given by the owners was very helpful.

If you are looking for a relaxing, get away from it all holiday, then this is perfect. We were able to sit, read, and generally enjoy the warmth. Had a very lovely time.

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fabulous seven days at this property.

The quality of the furnishings and in particular the main bedroom were unbelievable.The kitchen was the highest standard we have seen.

The views are stunning from the master bedroom.

If you want peace and quiet this is for you, nearest neighbours about 1/4 mile away.

We would not hesitate in booking this property again and can highly recomend it.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable Damage Deposit £150

Booking Notes:
Deposit is 200 euros (150 pounds) to be given on arrival in cash to my parents who will show you the property when you arrive (they live 3 km away). The deposit will be given back to you on the day of your departure. It is imperative the house remains well looked after during your stay just as you would treat your own house.
The full payment is due when you place your booking and is non refundable due to the price being so low. This will change over the years as we are intending to increase the rental fee.
If you wish the house to be cleaned for you on the day of your departure, it will cost 60 euros in cash (50 pounds) (cleaning of sheets and towels of 30 euros is included in the 60 euros). If you would prefer to clean the house yourself then there is no charge except for an extra 30 euros to cover cleaning of sheets and towels.

Changeover Day:
Saturdays but open to negotiations. I also accept a Friday or Sunday changeover for an extra £45.
