    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    Our Castel incorporates two recently converted self contained holiday rentals (gîtes), both have magnificent views and are named after the local (Griffon and Egyptian) vultures that often fly overhead. The one referred to here is the smaller Egyptian gite that can be rented with 2 or 1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (for each of these options refer to the pricing for 5 and 2 guests).

    We are situated in the Aveyron department at the south-west corner of the Cévennes National Park just 80 minutes from the Mediterranean. A 30 minute drive down the beautiful Dourbie valley brings you to the historic town of Millau where the crystal clear Dourbie (ideal for fishing) meets the river Tarn that then winds through the town and passes under the world renowned Millau Viaduct. More locally, a 10 minute d...

We stayed in the Egyptian Gite in Castel Cantobre in mid May 2015. This is a Hill walker's & Bird Watcher's paradise, with Eagles, Vultures & Kingfishers seen in the 3 days we were there (plus many others I have no name for, not being a "twitcher"!). The gite is spacious, well equipped and easy to live in, with UK... more

It was all we were hoping for and more. We got remote but not too remote. The bed was comfortable and the gite had everything we needed with our own terrace overlooking the valley. The garden simply had the best views. The village is quite remarkable but above all the owners are very special, nothing is too much trouble. The... more

Our stay over the Christmas/New Year period was exceedingly peaceful and relaxing.

The gite was clean, warm and very well equipt. We loved the location- the whole hamlet clings to the rocky...
