L'Oustal du Viaur is a recently renovated farm complex on the edge of a small rural hamlet perched high up above the Viaur Gorge on the Tarn/Aveyron border. Bleuet is our third and final gite on the complex and will be open for rental from July 18th 2009.

Situated half way between the historic departmental cities of Rodez and Albi means easy access to both of these fabulous cities which provide wonderful architecture, rambling backstreets and dozens of pavement cafes and restaurants to suit all pockets. In the immediate area are a number of bastide towns, unique to the SW of France, Sauveterre, Monesties, and of course the well know Cordes-sur-Ciel, being just a few.

You need a car if you are staying here, there is nothing within walking distance. Naucell is the nearest place for daily shopping and has most things you would need (supermarket, chemist, tabac etc) Pool was great, cleaned very... more
