    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Les Hirondelles is part of a traditional white stone building in the beautiful Tarn, close to the historic town of Monesties. The gite, which is situated on the first and second floors of the building, is attached to, but entirely independent of, the main house, where the British owners live. It has its own access stairway and large first floor terrace with a panoramic view. It has been sympathetically renovated giving a modern living space whilst retaining traditional features such as some interior stone walls.

    Les Hirondelles, named for the swallows who nest around us and keep us entertained with their acrobatics, is situated in a quiet hamlet, in deep farming country. You may hear a tractor going by but other than that the main sounds you will hear will be birdsong and the local c...

Location was important to us; wanted to be away from main roads and busy life, and that's exactly what we got. An easy drive to a couple of villages for food (Mirandol-Bourgnounac or Monesties) or Supermarkets just a bit further. The scenery around the gite was outstanding. Ornithologists who like Buzzards and many other birds will love it here. There...

Directly we turned into the drive, we saw the gite in front of us, immediately recognisable from the publicity photos, and the swimming pool to the left with the beautiful views beyond: we knew then we had chosen well. The site (buildings and grounds) is immaculate. The gite, itself, with its generous patio, is well equipped. The interior is finished... more

I have to say staying at Les Hirondelles was a pleasure. The gite itself was very clean, excellently presented, well equipped and Roger and Sara had made nice little touches that made the difference. The pool was large, clean and hot. The location of the gite was excellent, in a nice quiet area but local villages and towns were easily... more
