FIG TREE COTTAGE

La Salvetat-Peyrales Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Stunning setting in 9 acres of rolling countryside- for parties from 2 to 17.

IMPORTANT NOTE: DURING HIGH SUMMER, FIG TREE COTTAGE IS ONLY AVAILABLE WHEN RENTED ALONG WITH THE FARMHOUSE- IT WILL NOT BE RENTED SEPARATELY DURING THIS PERIOD.

Welcome to Les Chataigniers, where two houses, an enormous games room and heated swimming pool overlook nine acres of garden, fields and woodland.

Visitors remark on the beauty and tranquility of its setting, at the end of a country lane in a tiny hamlet on the Tarn/Aveyron border. Exploring the glorious countryside around, on foot or by bike, is a delight. A short drive or woodland walk brings you to our nearest village with its bakery, butcher and general store. Further afield are historic bastide towns, vineyards, castles, lively markets and wonderful outdoor leisure opportunities.

If you are a group of friends or extended family looking for a place to enjoy each others company but escape to your own space when you need to - you will find it at Les Chataigniers.

SURROUNDINGS: COURTYARD

This large open space allows an evening game of boules, a barbeque by the farmhouse steps and freedom for young children to run around in safety.

CLUBHOUSE

Cross the courtyard to this enormous space where you can hide from the noonday sun and enjoy a game of table tennis or billiards.

SWIMMING POOL

Out of the clubhouse, across a terrace with tables and chairs and down the steps is the 8m x 5m pool with its decked surround and sun loungers. It is fully fenced and all access is individually locked. Spectacular view!

LAWNS & TERRACE

Near the pool is a shaded seating area beneath a willow tree for those who wish to escape the bustle of swimmers. Below the pool is a level, grassed games area perfect for croquet or other ball games.

MEADOW

Below the complex of Les Chataigners is the meadow; play a game of rounders here, or adventure across it to the woods above the stream.

A wood burning stove in the large lounge offers out-of-season holidaymakers a warm welcome after an exhilarating walk in the surrounding beautiful countryside. Outdoors, guests are free to relax in 9 acres of grounds and gardens, as well as benefiting from a private south-facing terrace with built-in barbecue.

Relaxing holday, stunning cottage

  • 5 of 5
Fig Tree Cottage was the most beautiful, relaxing holiday let we have been to. The welcome was very warm, great friendly couple. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. I would recommend the cottage to anyone with no hesitation. The pool was very clean and well placed to relax looking at the amazing scenery. Chris even baked a cake for our arrival and it went down a treat (had to get the recipe)
Our grandson loved going to collect fresh eggs from the 'girls' every morning.
This is by far the best holiday we have had in years and we will be back to stay in the house the next time. Thank you both so much Mark and Chris

Home to 10 of France's 'Most Beautiful Villages' - as well as the world's highest bridge at Millau - Aveyron is rich in culture, history and natural beauty, yet remains relatively undiscovered. This is the place for people who love the outdoors! Walking, riding, photography, cycling, fishing, kayaking - all can be enjoyed amidst stunning surroundings, clean waterways and pure air. Those with an interest in history will delight in exploring its bastide towns, its castles, its churches and cathedrals. For gourmets, there are several Michelin-starred restaurants close by - or shop for the freshest of ingredients in a vibrant marketplace then bring them home to cook at leisure. If you can drag them away from the pool, children will find much to entertain them in the area too - Cap Decouverte is a theme park with a difference; Micropolis, the city of insects, is fun AND educational. During the summer, street theatre and festivals are common, and of course every village has its own fete!

Notes

  • Please remember that during the high season, Fig Tree Cottage is only available as supplementary accommodation to the main Les Chataigniers farmhouse, which is why no price is listed for the cottage alone during this period. The price shown is for both properties rented by the same group.

    Throughout the rest of the year Fig Tree Cottage is available for rental as a separate unit.

    For winter or longer-term lets, or if you are interested in chambres d'hotes/bed and breakfast, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
