La Vieille Maison in Tarn-et-Garonne, a cottage in Midi-Pyrénées: La Vieille Maison exterior

"Real France" - full of character, peaceful location, 5 minute walk to river

Our house enjoys a very peaceful, rural situation in the small hamlet of Succaillac. We spend a lot of time here and we hope you'll want to aswell. The house dates from the 18thC, has been recently renovated and has a brand new kitchen. The house is full of character and recent guests even described it as having a magical feel! It's of a simple traditional French style and has oak beams, polished floorboards and whitewashed walls. Leading out from the kitchen is a small terrace and a flight of steps down to a courtyard. In front is another small terrace, perfect for sitting on and soaking up the sun in the day, or bat watching at night. One minute round the corner is our garden. We've always spent family holidays here and it's well equipped for children – toys, tractor, bikes, high chair etc. Our children love it!
It is also a perfect romantic getaway and we are delighted to say that one couple got engaged on our terrace!
Offering two good sized private double bedrooms it would equally make a great base for two couples to spend their holiday together.
We aim to provide a comfortable holiday at a reasonable price.
We can forward you a detailed and informative list of the surrounding area and what it could offer you on your holiday. We hope what follows will whet your appetite.
It's a perfect base for exploration of the Midi-Pyrenees region and the area offers something for everyone. Visit some of the most beautiful and historic villages in France including St Antonin Noble Val, Najac, Bruniquel and Cordes sur Ciel - all close by. Your journeys will take you along some of the most breathtaking gorge roads in France. The Gorges D'Aveyron, Lot and Tarn are stunning. If you are into photography, you will be spoilt for choice.
Our nearest village, Varen, is full of medieval charm and has a lovely river beach which makes for a great day of swimming, paddling and sunbathing. If you want a proper swim head for the friendly small town of Laguepie 5 minutes away. A platform for river bathing and large inflatables are set in the river which is overlooked by the castle of Laguepie - floodlit at night.
If castles are your thing then Bruniquel and Najac won't disappoint!
Wine tasting is a stone's throw away in the Gaillac wine region.
If you want to get active the local area offers many opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, walking, climbing, riding, swimming (pool and river), tennis and cycling and the exciting activity park Cap Decouverte is an easy drive away.
It's great cycling country for both keen cyclists and beginners and we have bikes (plus child seat) that you are welcome to borrow free of charge. Our children learnt to ride their bikes on the quiet roads of the hamlet.
The natural world also beckons, from the herons and kingfishers on the river, red kites soaring above to the lizards and praying mantis soaking up the sun.
This is a real taste of unspoiled rural France - come and explore.
Well behaved pets considered.
