Estaing, Aveyron, Occitanie
Le Douluch is a converted seventeenth century stone barn with metre thick walls and exposed beams situated in a quiet spot overlooking the village of Le Monastere. It is located in the Aveyron, a rural area of the Midi Pyrenees region close to the village of Estaing, one of Frances “Beau villages”, in a largely rural area in the southwest of France. The area is not part of the usual tourist trail which is one of its great attractions to the independent traveller and those who want to experience real French life. While it is remote enough for a lazy holiday or for a restful break on a longer trip, it also offers many sights and activities.

Le Douluch sits high on the shoulder of a ridge and enjoys spectacular views into the adjoining valley. On clear days, you can see as far as Rodez, the departmental capital nearly 40 kms away. The barn...

We returned to Le Douluch for an extended stay of 7 weeks from mid September 2016, having stayed there for 2 weeks in 2012. Returning to Le Douluch felt like coming home, as it is a home away from home with a relaxing atmosphere and great views over the rural and forested valley. We enjoyed relaxing days at Le Douluch...
