Les Châtaignes in Tarn, a gite in Midi-Pyrénées: Garden and Grounds

Set in a tranquil setting offering fabulous views over the Tarn region

Les Chataignes is part of an old farmhouse set in an idyllic rural part of the Tarn with fabulous views stretching out over the Viaur valley and the Montagne Noire to the south. Its large outdoor swimming pool and garden are shared with our second gite, La Grange (ref: 14025). Both gites are adjacent to one another and have their own individual outdoor eating/barbecue area.

It is a spacious and detached holiday home with a part-covered planted courtyard which includes a charcoal barbecue and outside dining area. Adjacent to this is a small utility room which houses the washing machine and dishwasher. The kitchen/dining room, with beamed ceiling, is fully equipped. The dining area leads through to a very comfortable sitting-room which has an open fireplace and wood-burning stove. The staircase leads from the kitchen to the first floor, which consists of a large double bedroom, a spacious shower-room with washbasin and WC, and a separate bathroom (with shower over) which also has washbasin and WC. On the second floor there are 2 bedrooms, a mezzanine-style twin room which can be curtained off to provide privacy if required, and the second double.

The owners, Simon & Lizzie and their dog Mossy, have their home on the same site and are therefore available if needed. Most of the unfenced garden is set aside for guests' enjoyment. However, the owners do retain a section for their own private use, but the pool area is screened from their garden and balcony area offering a large degree of privacy.

In the local area, you have the Viaur river (3km) with its delightful picnic spot and swimming/paddling area and the village of Mirandol Bourgnounac (7km) which offers essential amenities including mini supermarket, bar/restaurant, bakers, bank, filling station, doctors surgery, pharmacy and tourist information.

The nearest town is Carmaux (22km) which offers a full range of amenities and a bustling Friday morning market - well worth a visit.

With a short journey of between 30/40 mins you have the world famous brick built cathedral in Albi, the beautiful village of Najac, with its spectacular castle, and the ancient bastide town of Cordes sur Ciel which is one of many in the Tarn and Aveyron regions to explore. Just a bit further, and you can also reach the local wine region of Gaillac.

For those who enjoy a more active holiday, we are surrounded by walking routes which vary in distance and level of ability, cycling routes (some not for the faint-hearted) and further afield, kayaking for the family at Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, golfing in Albi, exploring the gorges of the Tarn and Aveyron, sailing, tennis, the list goes on........
