Peacefulness, genuineness and charm are the characteristics of this old farmhouse.
The large welcoming living room is organised around the stone fireplace. The chestnut ceiling warms up the room. A splendid “monastery” table awaits the guests. This is the perfect place for holidays with your family or friends.
In front of the living room is a private courtyard perfect to enjoy your meals around the barbecue. The region is renowned for the quality of its meat, the “Aubrac beef”.
From June 1st to September 30th the swimming pool is open; it is heated thanks to the solar panels you can see on the aerial photo. Sheltered by a natural wall of rocks, it boasts a unique view on the Lot Valley.
The owners live in the house next door, they have donkeys for hikes, and occasionally they rent them. In love with this region and its heritage, they will give you some ideas of excursions. A hiking trail starts from the house.
