    Although deep in the countryside we are only 15 mins drive from medieval St Antonin noble val and the spectacular Aveyron river and gorge and endless old French villages and markets. its great for walking, cycling and canoeing!

    This secluded country house is set in the rugged plateau landscape of SW France.
    The delightful "bergerie" has been transformed into a simple but spacious and comfortable single-storey house with immediate access to nature.

    It is located centrally on it s own eight acre patch, and there is a 500m dirt track leading up to the house.


    The land immediately surrounding the house is unique.
    Three lay lines meet at a spot in the woods and the pool has been filled with blessed water.
    The garden has been sensitively landscaped with rock features, little stone pathways and beds of beautiful flowers.
    There is a stone roundhouse not far from the lodge surrounded by zinnias and marigolds.
    35 different species of butterflies and moths have been spotted on the lavender bushes and wild deer occasionally come to visit.
    The woods are full of nature spirits, ancient pathways covered in moss and magical shady glens.
    From there you can walk out into the countryside for miles without meeting another person.
    The whole garden merges seamlessly into the indigenous Oak, Juniper and multitude of other shrubs that make the "garrigue" of SW France so unique.

    We are far removed from the intrusion of traffic.
    You can enjoy the natural sounds of the cuckoo in spring, and later the nightingale, cicadas in the heat of the summer and a host of other birds to the full.

    Suits people who like nature and a quiet life.
    Great for cycling walking and canoeing in the Aveyron river at weekends.
