About Lefevre Nadege et Christophe

Many years ago, we found ourselves in the Tarn for professional reasons, were seduced by the charm of the region and found it to be a perfect spot to have a gite; a project that we had in mind for a long time. Passionate about travelling, good food and meeting people, we would be happy to hear from you and share the pleasure of life here. We speak English, Spanish and Italian.

Lefevre Nadege et Christophe purchased this cottage in 2009
