About the property


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.

Blanc is paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Blanc is a very special place and we have stayed there on 2 occasions - in the Schoolhouse and the Presbytery. The gites are beautifully maintained, everything is done with taste. The surroundings are amazing and a paradise for walking. We have never stayed in a place so peaceful and beautiuful. Carlos and David are perfect hosts and made us feel at home. We would recommed it without any hesitation to everyone but really don't want to spread it around.

Le Presbytère..Le rêve !

  • 5 of 5

Un gîte aussi beau en vrai qu'en photo ! Dans un endroit de rêve, isolé. Nous avons été reçus par 2 hôtes charmants, souriants et disponibles tout en restant discrets.

Une piscine magnifique, une nature préservée.. Le rêve..

Blanc, un vrai paradis !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé trois étés au Presbytère avec nos trois enfants. Le hameau de Blanc est un endroit absolument superbe auquel Carlos et David ont redonné vie avec talent : vue superbe, gîte aménagé avec goût, piscine très agréable.

David et Carlos nous ont très amicalement conseillés pendant nos séjours et se rendent disponibles pour répondre à toute question.

On ne peut que s'attacher à Blanc et à ses hôtes !
