Les Hirondelles is part of a traditional white stone building in the beautiful Tarn, close to the historic town of Monesties. The gite, which is situated on the first and second floors of the building, is attached to, but entirely independent of, the main house, where the British owners live. It has its own access stairway and large first floor terrace with a panoramic view. It has been sympathetically renovated giving a modern living space whilst retaining traditional features such as some interior stone walls.

The whole property has stunning 180 degree views to the Black Mountains 40 miles (64km) away - on a clear day the Pyrenees are visible more than 100 miles (160km) away. The property has a large, 12 metre by 6 metre unheated swimming pool equipped with loungers and parasols to laze away long sunny days.More

Thank you Paul and Dawn for your comments. We're delighted that you had the quiet holiday you were looking for, and that the local restaurants met your wishes for evening meals. Best wishes, Roger and Sara

The location is a perfect centre for site-seeing and for the more active there are many outdoor activity centres nearby. The gite with the pool was perfect with every conceivable piece of equipment you would need (and more). Sara and Roger were delightful hosts.
