Enjoying lovely views across a valley, with a two-thirds of an acre garden and swimming pool, this former farmhouse and adjoining barn has been refurbished into a delightful and substantial holiday home. Enjoying a quiet, rural location on the edge of the farming hamlet of Trebessac deep in the Aveyron countryside, the 5-bedroomed house makes an ideal place for two to three families to enjoy a classic French country holiday. Walking, cycling and fishing opportunities abound and the house is ideally situated for local amenities.

Trebessac is just 3 kilometres from the town of La Fouillade, and a 20 minute drive from the vibrant market town of Villefranche de Rouergue.

Having spent two weeks at Le Mel last yea we decided to return for a week this year. Having had such a wonderful time previously it was difficult to see how the house could be improved.

Trying to find accomodation which ticked all the boxes was a challenge but Le Mel exceeded all our expectations. The owners Inga and Simon were extremely helpful from... more
