    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...

As others have stated before, this gite matches the photographs and the description. The views across the countryside are stunning and the gite is immaculate. The building is old but has been beautifully restored and much thought has been put into presentation and equipping the rooms with all one could need. The open plan living area is spacious and the... more

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
