THE SCHOOLHOUSE

Peux-et-Couffouleux House Rental Photos and Description

A haven of tranquillity for walkers and nature lovers

The little hamlet of Blanc overlooks the beautiful Sanctus valley. Hawks, deer and wild boar roam its chestnut woodland, the pure air and mountain streams allow rare plants to thrive, and with no ground light you can still see the Milky Way.

The village consists of the remains of a 9th century chateau, a church and several stone houses with 8 hectares of grounds overlooking the valley.

Blanc lies in the middle of two regional parks, the Grands Causses and the Haut Languedoc, whose landscape is among the most beautiful and unspoilt in France and is therefore ideal walking country. There are several walks, with a specially edited walking guide, which leave from the village, lasting between 45 minutes and 6 hours.

The region is widely recognised for its wide range of outdoor activities. Horse and donkey riding are available locally, while for those in search of water, there's an abundance of streams and rivers, the breathtaking Tarn and Aveyron gorges, a swimming pond in the next village, and the Med's only 80km away.

There's no shortage of culture either: at hand are the historic chateaux and bastides (walled towns) of the Rouergue, the Templar and Hospitaller sites of the Larzac, and the Cistercian abbey of Sylvanes, with its respected summer festival of sacred music.

For refreshment, try the local delicacies: the famous cheese of Roquefort, charcuterie from Lacaune and wines of Faugeres.

Need more inspiration? Just take a look at what's on offer on the sites of the three neighbouring counties: the Aveyron, Tarn and Hérault.

There are also occasional activities in the village, especially during the summer.

Details for The Schoolhouse 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Half Bathrooms

This two-bedroom restored stone cottage faces across the village to the chateau. It's comfortably furnished in a contemporary style in wood and terracotta. Front and rear terraces offer the choice of spectacular village views or wooded seclusion. The bedrooms are normally set up with either one kingsize or two single beds. Two doubles are available on request, as is an extra single bed or child's cot. In summer, guests have the use of a large private pool 10 minutes' walk away which is shared between all the gites. A wood burner and electric radiators keep the house warm and cosy when it's cold outside. See our website (link below( for further details.

Nid douillet en pleine nature

  • 5 of 5
Avons hésité à formuler une appréciation, car nous ne sommes pas certains de vouloir voir cet endroit envahi…Séjour en 2013 à l’Azais, déjà réservé pour 2014, à l’écart, , nature profonde et belle, calme, horizon, nuits étoilées, gîte confortable très propre et agréable à vivre même si il pleut (très occasionnellement). Tout est beau. Accueil chaleureux, respectueux et discret. Nous n’en dirons pas plus.

MAGIQUE

  • 5 of 5
Notre fils de 4 ans et demi nous a demandé déjà à plusieurs reprises "quant est ce qu'on retourne à Blanc?". Ce n'est pas dans notre habitude de retourner deux fois sur le même lieu de vacance mais il est vrai qu'on retournerait sans hésiter à Blanc! L'acceuil y est chaleureux, la maison agréable, et que dire du cadre: MAGIQUE! Carlos et David font de ce lieu des vacances inoubliables!

Nature et calme. Inoubliable !

  • 5 of 5
A conseiller à toutes personnes à la recherche de calme, appréciant la nature, la randonnée, le vélo, ... en famille avec ou sans les enfants ... Pour les passionnés d'astronomie, le ciel le soir et la nuit est somptueux, profond, ... pas de pollution lumineuse artificielle qui gênerait l'observation.

Nous occupions le gîte "L'Ecole" : propre, spacieux, confortable. Tout y est. Sans oublié la piscine commune, les petits et les grands apprécieront.

Merci pour votre aimabilité et vos conseils et à 2013 !

au calme

  • 5 of 5
la description correspond bien au site: très joli endroit et jolie décoration avec des hotes vraiment gentils, interessants et amoureux de leur site-intarrissables sur de bons conseils et pour des visites L'escalier de l'école est cependant dangereux: il est très raide avec des petites marches, non adapté à des jeunes enfants (mais les toilettes sont à l'étage!!) une poele de petite taille pour la cuisine et une casserole c'est un peu juste de plus, les draps étant fournis, ils doivent etre changés à chaque locataire!!!!!ce qui n'est pas le cas:le drap blanc, entre la couette et le drap housse, est changé à chaque locataire seulement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Dans ce cas, mieux vaut ne pas fournir le linge de lit

Owner's Response: Tout escalier porte un risque potentiel pour des jeunes enfants, et il faut alors toujours les surveiller, mais notre escalier n'est pas 'dangereux' - les petites marches doivent même mieux convenir aux petits pieds! Nous avons augmenté la batterie de cuisine. Le linge de lit est toujours changé, sauf ce qui n'a pas servi - par exemple la couverture d'un deuxième oreiller, ou une housse de couette inutilisée en plein été.

Magnifique et inoubliable

  • 5 of 5
L'endroit est magnifique, calme, au coeur de la nature, la restauration des bâtiments a été faite avec goût et dans l'esprit des lieux, les intérieurs sont bien plus que confortables, ultra propres et chaleureux. Enfin, les maitres des lieux sont amicaux, prévenants et généreux, riches en bons conseils. Une adresse à recommander absolument aux amoureux de la nature, du calme et du confort.
