Rental Home -

The one referred to here is the larger Griffon gite that can be rented with 3 or 1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

We are situated in the Aveyron department at the south-west corner of the Cévennes National Park just 80 minutes from the Mediterranean. A 30 minute drive down the beautiful Dourbie valley brings you to the historic town of Millau where the crystal clear Dourbie (ideal for fishing) meets the river Tarn that then winds throug...

Interaction with guests
We live on site and are here when you arrive to advise on parking and help you in with your bags and shopping. We used to come on holiday here ourselves (which is why we have lived here full time since 2009), so we know a lot about the area and what to see and do - just come and have a chat.

We have stayed several times in this lovely gite at the top of Castel Cantobre. It feels on its own and has breathtaking views over the beautiful valley below. The area is largely undiscovered by tourists; the Aveyron must be one of the most beautiful...More

Thanks for the review, it's really nice having clients that leave as friends. I thought you were not going to do a review, so people wouldn't know about us and you could have us all to yourselves? ;-). Now you are going to have to...More

About the neighborhood
Millau (27kms away at the confluence of Dourbie and the Tarn rivers) is a small vibrant town with enough shops and hyper-markets for most people's needs. Market days are Wednesdays and Fridays while the villages more local to us have markets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is known for its Viaduct built in 2004, outdoor sports activities and Haute Couture leather industry.

More locally, the village of Nant 6 kms away provides us with butchers, bakers, restaurants, bars, convenience stores, a newsagent, post office, swimming pool in high season and an excellent tourist office.

Places to visit include the historic Knights Templar fortified villages, giant limestone caverns big enough to put cathedrals in and Roquefort for its cheese. For me, the main reason to come here is the beauty of...
