Domaine de Lasfonds - Figuier in Aveyron, a gite in Midi-Pyrénées: Terrace

Luxury converted barn with character set in 2 acres of beautiful countyside

Gite Figuier was originally a barn which we renovated in 2011 to provide luxury accommodation whilst keeping its original features. The main lounge with luxury fitted kitchen, cool tiled floor and exposed oak beams opens directly onto the garden. A hand-crafted chestnut staircase leads to the first floor double-height bedroom with its stone walls, exposed oak beams and four-poster wrought iron bed. There is also a single bed, dressing area and double doors lead to the ensuite bathroom with luxury spa shower.

For parties of 4, there is plenty of room to add an extra single bed and the kitchen is fully equipped for 4 persons. Note that the prices quoted are for 2 people, for 3-4 persons there is a supplement of £30 per week. We can also provide baby cot, bath and high chair and there are safety gates at both the top and bottom of the stairs.

We are ideally situated in the Aveyron countryside but within easy reach of some of the Aveyron's 10 most beautiful villages. Belcastel is a beautifully restored village on the banks of the Aveyron with a fabulous chateau overlooking the village. Sauveterre is one of the many bastides in the area set out on a grid pattern where all the narrow streets lead to a magnificent arcaded central square. Najac is another bastide, with arcaded houses on the main street running along the crest of a hill to its imposing fortress.

Every Thursday Villefranche-de-Rouergue (20 mins away) hosts one of the biggest markets in the region. This is a typical French country market which has been taking place since the 13th century. Make sure you sample our local delicacy of veal and aligot (creamy, cheesy mashed potato) washed down with a glass of local Marcillac or Gaillac red wine.

Looking further afield, we are under an hour from the beautiful village of Conques with its Romanesque abbey, the medieval walled city of Cordes-sur-ciel and the birthplace of Toulouse Lautrec - Albi recently classified as a UNESCO world heritage centre. We are also just over an hour to the highest road bridge in the world - the spectacular Millau viaduct.

When you’ve had enough sightseeing, relax in our large garden. As well as your own private terrace, our garden has several other terraces and sitting areas where you can relax with a glass of local wine and watch the sun go down. There is also a table tennis table, boules and our 2 donkeys always need feeding! For children we have swings and a real wooden chateau to play on.

We are happy to cook for you any time during your stay. Our vegetable garden and orchard produce a bountiful supply of fresh organic fruit and vegetables which we use in our evening meals and our very own range of liquers and digestives!
