Farmhouse in Tarn-et-Garonne, a cottage in Midi-Pyrénées: Farmhouse exterior

Setting for nature lovers, walks, cycling from the doorstep, swimminglake nearby

Beautifully set in a romantic valley with views over fields in close proximity to the medieval village of Bruniquel and its most impressive castle. There are 2 restaurants, cafes, bars all year round and an excellent Pizzeria in the summer, shops, and post office. The charming neighbouring village of Montricoux boasts pretty timber-framed houses and the Marcel Lenoir art museum which is worth a visit.
The culturally impressive towns of Montauban and Albi (museum of Toulouse-Lautrec) are only a short drive away.
Popular, traditional markets are in St. Antonin Noble Val and Caussade. The bustling market in St Antonin is located in the centre of the medieaval town and there are restaurants and cafes, where one can sit and watch people buying their fresh fruit, vegetables, olives, wine and clothes. A 30 minute drive through the countryside and vineyards brings you to the medieaval hill town of Cordes-sur-Ciel with art and craft galleries.

The river Aveyron with its beautiful gorges is a popular destination for cannoeing (but booking is advisable).

The house ''Borio'' offers calm and tranquility at the start of the Gorges d'Aveyron. Rambling and bicycle tours can start straight from the front door into rolling hills. The house catches the sun throughout the day but there are shady areas to relax in. You can choose a place outside the kitchen on the large terrace or in front of the bedrooms on gravel or even in front of the house. There is plenty of choice for parking in the sun or deep, cool, shade. All around there are views to the forest of La Gresigne and there is plenty of wild life to view: Deer, hares and rabbits.

A 15-minute drive will bring you to an idyllic leisure-lake, where you can swim, paddle, dive or slide into the water. There is also a beach and shady lying area. In Negrepelisse you will find an open-air swimming pool.

In June, the first two weeks in July and in September there is a 10% reduction when booking for two consecutive weeks.
