La Vele in Tarn, a cottage in Midi-Pyrénées: Swimming Pool

4 bedroom luxury house with pool - sleeps 8/10. 3 bathrooms. 20 mins to many attractions and sports

La Vele is located at the end of a small lane, and is surrounded on three sides by fields, vineyards and copses, a location that is proving to be equally attractive to adults, teenagers and young children. The gite is well equipped and spacious enough for a group of 8/10 people, such as an extended family, or two families sharing, but also appeals to smaller families or groups, including couples - in fact anyone who is likely to appreciate privacy, peace and quiet and lots of space when on holiday.

On the Ground Floor of this comfortable south facing gite there is a large, fully equipped modern kitchen/dining area, a large comfortable lounge with an additional dining area, a secondary lounge, and a shower room/toilet etc. On the First Floor there is a family bathroom, four large bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. Two of the very large bedrooms can easily accommodate an additional single bed or large cot.

Gardens, Pool and Pigeonnier
The 2.4 acre plot contains the old converted barn, swimming pool, pigeonnier, garden and small field. The garden is simple, but imaginatively designed, with a variety of fruit and nut trees. Predominantly grass, and therefore ideal for children’s’ games, the garden also has high laurel hedges that offer welcome shade during the summer, with the field becoming an additional play area.
Designed for sunbathing and alfresco eating, the pool, patio and secluded poolside barbecue area is totally fenced to meet safety legislation, with two ‘childproof’ access gates. The 12m x 6m pool kept spotlessly clean by means of a ‘robot’ pool cleaner, has both a seven foot deep-end suitable for diving, and a shallow end with easy to manage corner steps, enthusiastically enjoyed by ‘little ones’ of all ages. The large gas BBQ, makes alfresco dining a joy, whilst the 'Abri' brings some welcome shade to guests whilst eating at the two tables and 10 chairs.
A feature of the Tarn area, the pigeonnier [or dovecote], houses a selection of inflatables, sun loungers, and parasols etc., for the use of guests.

Places to Visit, Things to Do, and Sporting Activities
The Tarn is arguably France’s best kept secret holiday location, with La Vele being ideally placed to benefit. Within a 20-minute drive there are:
• Bastide Towns and other historical places of interest to visit,
• over 130 vineyards producing quality wines,
• a wide selection of eating places from bistros to Michelin star
• open air leisure parks,
• horse riding, golf, tennis, etc.
Extend the driving time to 40-minutes, and the selection of things to see and do increases three-fold. Culture, sport, magnificent scenery, excellent shopping - you name it and the Tarn has it, ... and yet Toulouse [the Paris of the South West] and France’s fourth largest city, is also only an hour's drive away.
