Thirteenth and 21st century history blend beautifully in this stunning setting. With its various apartments this ancient fortified farm is ideal for families sharing.
The charming small town of Millau is 5km away. It offers an extensive range of good restaurants, a twice-weekly market (Wednesdays and Fridays), and very good shops and services.
There are many beautiful villages close by. Within 15km are Peyre (one of the 'Plus Beaux Villages de France') with its troglodytic church, Paulhe, St-Georges-de-Luzençon and Compeyre, and within 25km Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, Castelnau Pegayrols, Mostuéjouls, Peyreleau and St-Véran. Many of these no longer have shops or bakeries but do have day and evening markets depending on the time of year (all information supplied at the property).
A day touring the fascinating templar villages in the Causse du Larzac is well worth doing: Ste-Eulalie-de-Cernon (29km), Le Viala du Pas de Jaux (38km), St-Jean-d'Alcas (35km), La Cavalerie (23km), La Couvertoide (44km).
Located at the heart of the Grand Causses Regional Nature Park in the southern Aveyron close to the Cévennes National Park, this vast historic property dating back to the time of the Templars faces the impressive Millau Viaduct (read about the viaduct >> ). It enjoys easy access to the fabulous Tarn and Dourbie Gorges as well as the stunning landscapes of the various 'Causses' (limestone plateaus). The property enjoys impressive views over the vast Larzac Causse.
The area thrives with outdoor activities due to its mountainous landscapes and rivers: paragliding, caving, rock climbing, hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking are all possible nearby.
