Along with my husband and two-year-old son, and our friends with a five-year-old, we stayed in the gite called Bleuet. It was a brilliant property for a large group with spacious rooms and an open-plan living space ideal for relaxing together. Outside the property was an outside dining area with BBQ and chimena provided as well. The grounds were extensive and beautifully planted. The swimming pool is gated making it safe for smaller children, excellent for our little troublemaker! In addition, a great play area makes it perfect for families with younger children.
There are plenty of walks from the property, so although you need a hire car to travel from Rodez Airport which is about 45 minutes away, we weren't reliant on the car every day. Small local towns such as Pampelonne and Naucelle provided enough shops and markets to give us a real feel of french cuisine! Albi, at around 25km away is also worth a visit, it is a really interesting city sporting the largest stone cathedral...

We've just returned from a stay in Tournesol, the smaller of the 3 gites. Whilst the weather was slightly cooler than is normal for this time of year, we (2 adults a 5 year old and a 2 year old) had a fantastic stay. L'Oustal du Viaur is set in Teillet, a beautiful little hamlet 1 hour and 10 minutes drive from Toulouse airport and 20 minutes drive from the town of Albi. It was easy to get to and everything was as had been described. We were fortunate that there were other young children staying at the same time so the kids were happy around the pool (although we had checked this with Julie beforehand). The hosts (Andy and Julie who live on a fourth property on the site) were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. They recommended excursions and restaurants and were able to provide babysitting to allow us to go out for a couple of meals without the kids. All of the properties have beautiful period features (beams, shutters etc.) and have been renovated by...
