Overview

About the property

2 bedroom house in much visited medieval village

Maison Fleurie offers an unrivalled combination of character, homely comfort, peace and utter seclusion with ready access to cafes, restaurants and shops. A home at the centre of all you could desire and yet as quiet as the countryside. In the heart of an ancient citadel, the house retains its medieval character with modern convenience. Décor is soft and understated. Fully tiled showers boast powerful thermostatic delivery. Beds have supportive mattresses and feather pillows. Looking onto the spectacular gorge of the Aveyron river there is an adjoining private courtyard with unshared in-ground circular heated pool, four metres across, typically heated to 25C during season. In another garden there are dining table, chairs and sun beds for six. Take the sun to the chime of the village clock, doze in shade, float on water - or just enjoy a short stroll in some of the nation’s most fabulous scenery.

Monthly rentals available from September until May; September £1300, October £800, November - February £550, March/April £800, May £1200.

During summer we rent the house weekly from Saturday to Saturday, please contact us if you need a different start day.

Why Clare Simmons chose Tarn-et-Garonne

Outdoor space in the centre of Saint Antonin is so precious, and with not one but 2 courtyards we had to buy it!

A little gem in a historic setting.

  • 5 of 5

The village house is little gem, being situated in the heart of the medieval town, it was wonderful to walk 100 yards to a bar, restaurant or ice cream shop. We lived in the courtyard garden and the pool was perfect for the children, 9 and 13. The house had everything you needed and very comfortable. It was such a pleasure to look out onto the roof tops from the bedroom windows. The kitchen was well appointed, there was plenty of tea and coffee and the welcome pack meant was god send after a long drive. We enjoyed walking to the river in the evening and the Sunday market. The canoeing was really touristy, but such good fun - a must. The owners were super friendly and just round the corner, so any problems they were there in seconds. We would highly recommend this holiday, we loved the historic setting, made a change from the secluded villa's we normally go for.

Maison Fleurie

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two very enjoyable weeks in Maison Fleurie. The gite is very well equipped. From the kitchen to the master bedroom quality dominates. Two excellent showers, an endless supply of hot water and plenty of towels and clean linen make this truly a home from home. The king-sized bed was a real bonus for us.

Steve is a thoughtful host who has spared no effort to provide plenty of recreational items, lots of books in English, TV channels from England as well as France and a DVD player. The unusual thing for us after over 40 years of gite rentals in France was that there was no question of paying extra once you passed a set limit in electricity usage Everything was included in your rental fee even the clean up when we left. The king sized bed was a real bonus for us.

St Antonin Noble Val is a photographers' paradise and provided many hours of enjoyment.

We heartily recommend this gite to anyone interested in exploring medieval French villages from a very comfortable base.

A Place to Feel at Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks at this property late February and early March 2011. The weather was very good for this time of the year. The apartment is kept very clean and is quite comfortable for four. It is well equipped for eating in. For those liking to take showers you will not be disappointed. The two shower stalls are more than adequate with plenty of hot water. A car is essential if you want to go further afield, which is a must as there are many interesting places to visit, all within an hour and a half drive. We found the owner within easy reach by 'phone in the event any questions arise. If you want to stay in a town that takes you back several hundred years, this is the place to envisage how people lived back in those days. Saint Antonin-Noble-Val has a lot of character. One of the best bakeries we know is just steps away from the apartment.

We're sorry we only had a week!

  • 5 of 5

We were twy couples with only a week to spare in third week of September. Excellent weather perfect for walking. We particularly appreciated local walks guide among literature supplied. House is well equipped and spotless and hosts quick to fix any problem (replacement lightbulbs in our case). Would strongly recommend. We wished we had three weeks at least!

The ancient midi-Quercy region is a mosaic of natural topographies. It is a land of stone, water, gorges, valleys, lakes, river plains and forests, bathed in sunlight and full of colour at all times of the year. Vineyards and orchards colour the countryside, and in the markets the air is filled with the smell of apples, plums, peaches and melons. There are many farms and vineyards to visit where visitors can sample local food and wine produce. Activities nearby include swimming, canoeing, kayaking, walking, golf, fishing, caving, rock-climbing and riding - as well as museums and places of historical and cultural interest to visit. Standing-stones, dolmens and rock caverns all attest to human occupation since Paleolithic times. Medieval churches, temples, castles, walled towns, chapels, abbeys and perched cliff side villages wait to be discovered. An in-depth on line guide covering all aspects of the area within a reasonable day's excursion is available on request.
