We took both properties - the farmhouse and the gite. They were excellent. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were efficient and everything was very clean. Both kitchens were well stocked with cutlery and crockery, and there were excellent indoor and outdoor eating areas. Wifi worked well and a signal booster meant it got to the pool. We have been hiring villas as a group for ten years now and this is one of the best.
It was also good for our kids. The pool was very child-friendly because of the steps down into it, and there was plenty of space in the meadow around the property for letting off steam.
You'll need a car. There are countless vineyards with 15 minutes, a couple of bakeries, and a big supermarket open Sunday mornings 20 minutes away. You can have a good day out in St Antonin or in Albi, with culture, restaurants and watersports available.
The owners and their local representative were easy to deal with, and the financial side all worked smoothly...
