This beautiful converted stone farmhouse in an excellent touring location, sits on a metaphoric ’crossroads’ of the Tarn, Tarn-et-Garonne, Aveyron and Lot. The lovely green valleys, dramatic gorges and dense woodlands make this a wealthy domain for bird watching, walking, cycling or wild flower spotting. With all creature comforts, in a bright and inspiring atmosphere, look out onto the beautiful surrounding countryside (no nearby neighbours). There is a good combination of ancient and modern with original beams, stone walls and contemporary fixtures and furnishings. Enter via the front gravelled area of the lower level or via two stone staircases. Whatever the season, there is plenty to see nearby. Visit Cordes, Najac (Aveyron Gorges), Albi (Toulouse Lautrec Museum), St. Cirq-Lapopie (Lot Valley) and Bruniquel. Fly via Rodez or Toulouse.Lower level: Living room with French windows.
