We recently stayed in this spacious, wonderful gite, Maison de Tourelle in rural France in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It was an ideal holiday home with both charm and modern amenities including the fabulous pool, especially essential in the July heat and the perfect house in which to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary with our family. Who enjoyed running and cycling locally. We particularly loved the quirkiness of the ancient tower in the property . Nothing was too much trouble for our amazing hosts, Janine and Tony who facilitated so many extras to make our visit especially memorable, such as providing cycles and putting us in touch with a local baker for a celebration cake, among many other things. Villages including Monesties, Cordes sur Ciel and the stunning towns of Albi and Toulouse, were within easy reach by car and all have good restaurants and shops.. Book it now; you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at this beautiful property at the end of June and had a very memorable time. Janine and Tony are perfect hosts keeping everything ticking over but allowing peace and privacy or advice and company in equal measure. The gardens and pool are pristine and the properties themselves are spacious,well equipped and retain that typical French Charm that is what I want in a French rural location. Its a lovely step back in time but with all the modern conveniences added. The only disappointment was that the restaurant next door was closed but I'm sure this will be bought and reopened soon. Also Tony will provide meals if given notice even a curry if you are missing England ☺. All in all a beautiful French rural location excellent cycling roads (I am advised by my cycling mad husband and great hosts. Thank you
