    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Tarn Owls nestles peacefully in a tranquil rural location amongst vineyards and sunflower fields close to the Gresigne Forest. The stunning countryside with excellent walking tracks has some of the loveliest mediaeval towns and villages, and some of the most inspiring gorges and valleys in France. The forest is one of the largest and oldest oak forests in Europe, it abounds in wildlife and is said to have been planted by Louis XIV.

    The spacious accommodation has been refurbished to a high standard, retaining original features including lovely oak beams and part exposed limestone wall. The beautiful house was the central location for a new film that had its première recently.

    There is no other let property - only the owners share the extensive grounds.

During our fortnight here we were blessed with hot, sunny weather which afforded many opportunities for relaxing in the park-like grounds and swimming in the magnificent heated pool. The whole experience was one of perfect relaxation. The area is rich in medieval hilltop villages, such as... more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here for two weeks in August. The gite is in a beautiful tranquil setting, in glorious countryside. The rooms are large and spacious , with the downstairs sitting room a little dark, as it is slightly below ground level. Most of the rooms overlook the nearby vineyard, with only the master bedroom overlooking the gardens and pool. There...

This guest stayed with us nine months ago, and has just posted this review. We were told that the guests had had ‘a lovely holiday’, and had no complaints at all when they left, so we are very disappointed and saddened to learn that this guest now feels less positive about what , at the time, we were assured was... more

And I mean it! This was our first visit to this part of France and were not disappointed. I must admit my girlfriend was inspired to look at this area by the recent film with Helen Mirren, but we need little excuse to holiday in France, regardless! The gite owners were very welcoming and helpful in suggesting places to visit,... more
