Newly restored, this light and airy house takes its name from the south facing terrace with glorious views out over the Sanctus valley.
The interior furnishing marries contemporary and traditional, with as centrepiece an original handturned wooden spiral staircase.
The two bedrooms offer a choice of kingsize double or three single beds, either side of a bathroom with separate shower and tub.
The large private pool, shared between all the gites, is just a stone's throw away.
A handsome wood burning stove, toegether with electric radators, keeps the house warm during the cooler months.
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.

We have spent 2 wonderfull weeks in this holiday cottage and have enjoyed every single minute. Everything was perfect. We will come back!!!
je conseille vivement cet endroit, une maison coquette, très propre, tout ce qu'il faut dans la maison, et ....de la terrasse, cette vue à couper le souffle...un endroit idéal pour se ressourcer en osmose avec la nature...merci à Carlos et David pour leur disponibilité et leur chaleureux accueil.. je ne voudrais pas trop en dire car j'ai peur que tout le monde y vienne et que je ne puisse plus y revenir faute de place!!...
Everything was as I expected. It is a perfect hide-away. The house was charming and had all mod cons which made it easy and comfortable. We felt welcome and enjoyed our time there. I'll gladly recommend Blanc to my friends and hope to return one day.
