Stunningly situated on top of a hill overlooking the rolling unspoilt Tarn countryside,
our traditional barn has been sensitively converted to form the very comfortable
gite « Les Tournesols », a true home from home. (Whilst the main house is situated on the property and we are close at hand to assist you if needed, the accommodation in « Les Tournesols » is totally separate and away from the main house; and access to the pool is reserved exclusively for your private use.)...
« Les Tournesols » is a short walk from a small village, which has a corner store/post office, bakery, café, a restaurant (great for Sunday lunch...!) and is only a 5/10 mins drive from each of the pink brick market towns of GAILLAC, LAVAUR,
RABASTENS and LISLE SUR TARN. These offer all services (weekly colourful street markets, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, cinemas, banks, post office, doctors), as well as being charming and interesting places to visit, surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers.
« Les Tournesols
» is only 20 mins away from ALBI a national heritage UNESCO site with its magnificent 12th Century Cathedral & Toulouse Lautrec Museum, and 30 mins from the dynamic and cosmopolitan city of TOULOUSE, cultural & artistic capital of SW France.
This unspoilt area of France, the SOUTH WEST, has the French charm and tranquillity needed for a restful holiday, but should you wish to be active and sporting, there is riding, kayaking, tennis, golf, cycling, rambling all in the immediate surroundings...
