Trois George Sand is just 2 kilometres away from the quaint small town of Cransac with it's thermal spa and mineral spring. It borders on the Forest of Vaysse with its Acacia trees and pretty walks.
The ancient towns of Figeac, Rodez, and Villefranche de Rourgue are all less than a thirty minutes away. In less than a half hour's drive you will also find the Beaux Villages of Belcastel, Conques, Sainte-Eulalie d'Olt, Estaing and St Come d'Olt. The river Lot with its fishing opportunities is just 5 minutes away.
There is plenty to entertain the children in the region with Chateau Colombier and its animals of the region, Micropolis and the amazing Monkey Forest.
A little further away, visit the caves at Padirac, Rocamadour, Dordogne river, Toulouse, and the majestic cite of Carcassonne.
For the more adventurous there is also canoeing and kayaking on the rivers Lot and Aveyron, mountain biking, rafting, hang gliding and rock climbing. The local equestrian centre is just 1 km away. Within half an hours drive you can also visit adventure parks.
Alternatively you can relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding area whilst sitting on the deck around our beautiful swimming pool.
The Aveyron region is a real must for all francophiles. It is a traditional, rural delight with endless rolling vistas and changing scenery from the dramatic foothills, to the endless plateau, to the spectacular Gorge and rivers. This is truly a snapshot of the real France, a France where time almost appears to standstill.
The region is steeped in history from the prehistoric tribes living in the caves of the limestone plateau to the 100 years war and the settlement of the Knights Templar in the region. The region also boasts more Les Plus Beaux Villages de France than any other, so culture is never very far away.
The region is proud of traditional regional products of impeccable quality which feature in its unique cuisine. Sample traditional Aveyron dishes including aligot, le Laguiole, la fouace, Aubrac beef, foie gras, tripous, confits, stuffed cabbage, Estofinado, thrush pâté with goose liver, lamb, feuilleté au roquefort, ewes' curds and the inevitable Roquefort accompanied by wines from Marcillac, Estaing or d'Entraygues.
In Aveyron, a meal is not a meal without a traditional patisserie: Fouace cake flavoured with orange-flower water, almond croquants, échaudés à l'anis, Gateau a la broche (a cone-shaped cake cooked for several hours on a stick by the fire). Followed by a liqueur or eau-de-vie brandy (walnut, quince or plum) to conclude the meal.
We recommend some eating at Auberge du Fort in Aubin to get a true flavour of the Aveyron.

Nous avons séjourner dans cette maison 1 semaine pour les fêtes de fin d'année 6 couples d'amis. La maison est très jolie tout en pierres avec le cachet de l'ancien. Depuis la terrasse la vue est magnifique et nous avons pu cet hiver clément apprécier les couchers de soleil. La maison est confortable très bien entretenue. Les lits étaient faits à notre arrivée, la maison chauffée, un sapin ornait le salon et du bois était prêt pour préparer le feu dans les 2 poêles de la maison. Le wifi fonctionnait très bien seul inconvénient sur la télé on ne reçoit que les chaînes anglaises mais nous n'étions pas là pour ça mais pour visiter les beaux villages de Conques Najac ... Une voiture est nécessaire les premières boutiques sont à 6 km et l'endroit est vallonné. Je recommande cette location même l'été car il y a une jolie piscine sécurisée pour les jeunes enfants.
Thank you for your wonderful review of our property. We are pleased you and your friends enjoyed the property and the region. We will be looking to install French Television in the future, along with the English satellite TV.
