Away from the tourist hotspots here is the real country France. We've been twice and greatly enjoyed this quietly old, spacious and nicely serviced house, including another smaller one across the road. It's in a group of old houses clustered around a communal green. There are logs to burn in winter and cycles to ride in the summer, and it has a lovely modern pool. A splendidly equipped kitchen but if you don't feel like cooking there is a typical country restaurant in nearby Parisot village where you also find the basic shops - boulangerie of course.
Plenty of good walks to explore, even canoeing on the river Aveyron. Towns within easy distance are Saint Antonin for its overflowing weekly street market, Villefranche for serious shopping, Najac with an extraodinary castle on a hill, and Albi steeped in history and art.
A great place for a mostly restful Gallic holiday.
