Rives St Maury in Tarn, a cottage in Midi-Pyrénées: Rives St Maury exterior

Beautiful ground-floor apartment with stunning views across River Tarn

A warm welcome from Robert & Michèle awaits you at Rives St Maury, which nestles within the Golden Triangle, sloping gently down to the River Tarn, at Labastide de Lévis, midway between Gaillac and Albi, near the vineyards of Gaillac and the Pays des Bastides.

The views from the villa and ground-floor apartment (for two people) across the River Tarn are spectacular, as are the sunrises and sunsets. Our garden slopes down to the riverside itself. Because of the dam a few kilometers downstream (no fear of flooding), the river opens out looking more like a lake. The water is usually very calm, giving wonderful light and reflections of the banks, trees and bridges. You can fish in the river (for carp, perch, sandre, catfish, bass, etc.) from our garden banks; watch the herons, egrets, golden orioles, red kites, hoopoes or kingfishers; take the pedalo on the water; or just simply sit back, unwind, relax and enjoy the peaceful serenity of the beautiful countryside.

This very luxurious and comfortable self-contained apartment for two peole is on the ground floor and all on one level. The owners of the property live on the second floor and they are only too willing to help with any queries or difficulties you may have. There is a good, fully equipped kitchen, with fridge, hob, oven and microwave. The spacious dining area leads into a sitting room, where there are English TV channels and a DVD player. The pretty and cosy double bedroom has a pleasant ensuite bathroom with large shower area.

Sheets, towels, tea towels, etc. are also provided. There is a fan for mid-summer or central heating during the cooler months. People staying for 2 weeks may ask to use the owner's washing machnine. If you wish to barbecue, the owners have one you may borrow. The property is not suitable for young children or pets.

Bookings are encouraged to go from Wednesday to Wednesday, but do enquire if other arrival and departure days required. A refundable deposit of £100 is asked for before arrival.

This quiet and unspoilt area offers many local culinary delights and the Gaillac wine must not be missed, as Gaillac is the capital of this wine region. Albi, with it’s famous cathedral and Toulouse Lautrec Art Centre, is now a World Heritage Site. The countryside is spectacular, as are the medieval bastide towns which are steeped in history. We can assure you that you will not be bored or disappointed with this wonderful and historic area of south western France. Fishing is possible from our garden as it is beside the river. See our own website for details.

Toulouse, Carcassonne and Rodez airports are all within fairly easy reach.
