Lovely stay - shame the weather went off the boil. Vet in Parisot speaks good English and couldn't be more helpful, but make an appointment. Have fun!

Fantastic, Beautiful, gorgeous - just a few words to describe this lovely place. Houseis amazing. we had such a rlaxing time here. Everything to hand, pool area was well used as we were lucky enough to have brilliant weather (30+ most days) Visited Najac, Albi, Montauban, Villefranche, St Antonin Noble Val and di a big day out to Carcassonne. Saw red deer on a bike ride, a fox, red squirrel and countless lizards, butterflies and wildlife. a haven for nature lovers. Would definitely recommend this place to others! A little piece of paradise in a beautiful region. Thank you so much.
