Bournazel Barn Rental Photos and Description
3 beautiful gites sleep from 2 to 14, ideal for holidays with family or friends
Welcome to Le Roc and gîtes; Cerise, Noisette and Amande. Le Roc is situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Bournazel with views over the Renaissance Château and the undulating countryside of the Aveyron. Set in two acres of meadowland close to the 10m x 5m swimming pool, (fitted with security cover and security fence), a honey coloured stone barn has been sensitively converted to create the three comfortable and stylish gîtes. The barn is a short distance from the stone farmhouse where we will be living during your stay, available to help with any requests.
Guests comment on the high quality of the accommodation and its ideal location for experiencing French village life, exploring the natural beauty and the many and varied attractions the Aveyron has to offer.
The Aveyron is a beautiful and largely undiscovered départment of France, rich in culture, history and natural beauty. The landscape is varied and provides a mixture of mountains, gorges, plateaux, forests, rivers, woodland, rolling ‘causses’ and lakes. The tranquil undulating countryside is ideal for walking and mountain biking with the many ‘chemins’ leading to magnificent panoramic views. In amongst the beautiful scenery can be found Medieval bastide villages, churches and châteaux, including many of the ‘plus beaux village de France’, such as Conques, Najac and Belcastel. There are also vineyards to visit where the local AOC Marcillac wine can be sampled. In the summer numerous night markets and village ‘fetes’ provide an opportunity to sample regional food and drink and join in with local festivities. The dramatic Vallée de Lot and Gorges de l’Aveyron also provide opportunities for canoeing and swimming. Le Roc provides an ideal base for exploring the region.
The village of Bournazel, where Le Roc is located, has at its centre a château which is said to be one of the finest examples of Renaissance architecture in Southern France. The château is currently being renovated to include extensive gardens in the Renaissance style and is open to the public daily. The village has evolved around the château in the bastide style with narrow streets accessed by gateways in the ‘walls’ and with closely packed houses that look inwards. At the foot of the walls of the château, shaded by plane trees, is the village square which is often the centre of activities and the place where the villagers gather to play pétanque and sit and chat. On the edge of the square is the village bar and restaurant.
