Auvillar, listed as one of the prettiest villages in France, has both Mediaeval and Roman origins with cobbled streets, an unusual covered circular corn exchange and stunning views. The market is still used today as a focal point for village life and a weekly farmers market. The village has a butcher, a baker a corner shop, gift shops, tea shops, restaurants, a museum and tourist office, all the amenities you will need for your holiday.
Nestled in its own little valley, Le Farat is Minutes from Auvillar in the Tarn et Garonne (dept 82), as yet a relatively un-discovered corner of Midi Pyrenees in South West France. It is renowned for its beautiful villages, stunning scenery, châteaux, fresh fruit, wine, Armagnac, foie gras, Agen prunes and much more. Just two hours South East of Bordeaux, under an hour from Toulouse and 7 hours from St Malo. It has easy road, rail and air access and is an area full of great things to explore and enjoy.
Apart from the obvious tourist attractions there are lots of other things to keep you occupied, for example fishing (on site as well as in the river Garonne), golf, horse riding, sailing and windsurfing, walking, shopping, theme park if you want one! wine tasting at a local vineyard and many restaurants within 10 mins.
We offer weekly afternoon wine tours to two local wine caves where we do the driving so you can do the drinking! ask for details.
For those looking for a more modern approach to their holiday there is a large shopping town, a theme park with roller-coasters and a great go-karting track within half an hour! What more could you want.........oh yes the weather, guess what, you've got that too!
