La Fage in Aveyron, a cottage in Midi-Pyrénées: La Fage exterior

Beautiful character gite in the heart of the Aveyron countryside

Situated off the beaten track in a small hamlet, La Fage is surrounded by beautiful open countryside thus being the perfect place to unwind, relax and explore.

The gite is completely independent and on the ground floor you have an open plan lounge/dining area with a wood burner for those chilly winter breaks. The kitchen is also open plan and very well equipped and has everything you need should you be fed up on being waited on in the local restaurants.

From the lounge 2 double doors open up on to your private terrace where you can sit out on a warm evening and barbecue to your heart's content.

Sun loungers are provided but if relaxing in the sun gets a bit too much then perhaps you could eat your lunch in the shade on the picnic bench under your willow tree.

Upstairs there are two large bedrooms one double and one twin, both with vaulted ceilings

I have furnished the gite to give a homely feel with your comfort in mind and therefore have also placed in the gite a cool box and picnic set so that you can explore the beautiful Aveyron countryside.

Just to make life a little easier for you we can also provide a highchair, playpen, cot and baby bath.

Only a 8 minute drive from the bars, cafes and shops of the market village of Rignac the gite is ideally situated deep in the Aveyron countryside but nevertheless only 15 - 45 minutes of some stunningly beautiful villages.

Rignac holds a small weekly market and has a well stocked local shop / excellent butchers/ a pharmacy/ 2 mouthwatering boulangeries/ post office/ haberdashery and what something that defines every French village...4 hairdressers!

In the next valley is not only Mirabel, a hill top village used by the French resistance to escape capture in the 2nd world war but the picture postcard village of Belcastel with it's chateau and 2 gourmet restaurants.
If you fancy a bit of DIY you could always take a picnic down to the Aveyron river flowing through the medieval village of Previnquières.

Just 20 minutes away there is the bastide town of Villefranche de Rouergue which holds a weekly Thursday market and is said to be the best in the region, or you could book a canoe for an hour, 1/2 day/whole day just to cruise throught the Gorges of the Aveyron, but if you fancy sitting up a bit higher you could go horse riding through the vineyards of the Marcillac valley.But if you prefer to use your own two feet there are lots of walks in the area I can recommend or translate for you.

Places that are also a must to visit are Conques (world heritage site), Najac, Peyrusse Le Roc, St Antonin Val Noble, Cirq Lapopie, Bouzouls, Sauveterre de Rouergue, watch the eagles of Rocamadour or drive over the famous spectacular Millau viaduct.

This is truly a French retreat.........
