Overview

Tarn House Rental Photos and Description

Large 60 sq m lounge, 2 bedroom sleeps 4, pool, garden, open all year

Gite Solterre is located amongst the vineyards of the famous Gaillac wine producing area in the Tarn department of Midi Midi-Pyrenees. Gite Solterre was converted from an old winery into a luxurious two bedroom accommodation with a spacious lounge, underfloor heating, private plunge pool with saline water and walled terrace. Large about 60 sq metres (600 sq foot) open plan living room – dining – kitchen with high ceilings and large panoramic windows over the fields, hills and vineyard. Tiled floors. Comfortable TV area with plasma screen and two sofas. Large dining table with sitting for six; Tasteful combination of old and new. Brand new solid wood furniture. New kitchen and bathrooms. New appliances. Underfloor heating. British Freeview. WiFi. iPod compatible audio system. Plasma TV and DVD. Quality bedding, linen and toileteries provided. Suitable for elderly and wheelchair access (main door 80cm, all other doors 78cm, no steps inside the property).

The area north of Gaillac is full of gently rolling hills, green valleys and delightful medieval villages (bastides) and is often referred to as a ‘French Tuscany’. Some call it the “golden triangle” between Albi, Gaillac and Cordes-sur-Ciel. It is a perfect holiday base to explore the region full of history and natural beauty – forests, mountains, hilltop villages, great full and wine, Mediterranean atmosphere and climate.

Modern and well equipped in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about this lovely place, but to name just a few: modern fixtures/fittings/bathrooms, bigger than it looks in the pictures, sun-trap private courtyard, very comfortable beds, good quality towels and linen, absolutely silent at night (a Londoner's dream!) and a beautiful view and sunset from the field opposite. We also felt that the gîte was very well and thoughtfully stocked - a mostly new and very comprehensive set of kitchen equipment, many detailed recommendations for local restaurants and sights in the welcome pack, good quality selection of books/games/DVDs, and some really lovely soaps left for us to use! We would highly recommend both this gîte and the local area, and can't wait to go back.

Wonderful - modern and well-equipped gîte in the middle of stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

We can't find enough good things to say about this place, but to name just a few: modern fixtures/fittings/bathrooms, comfortable beds, great quality linen and towels, private sun trap courtyard, stunning views from the field opposite, absolutely silent at night (a Londoner's dream!) and the rooms are more spacious than they look in the pictures. We also felt the gîte was really thoughtfully and thoroughly stocked: good quality and comprehensive selection of kitchen equipment, a great range of books/games/DVDs, many personal and detailed recommendations for local restaurants and attractions in the welcome pack, and lovely soaps left for us to use! We can highly recommend and would definitely return.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely Gite for a week. If you want a relaxing holiday in a stunning area of the Midi-Pyrenees you need not look any further.

The Gite is spacious and very we'll furnished. George the owner met us when we arrived and very kindly supplied us with a free food pack including a bottle of nice wine and some beer!

The position of the Gite gives you easy access to stunning bastides and medical villages.

If we went back to this area Gite Solterre would be our first choice!

Relaxing, luxurious and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying here and would highly recommend it if you are thinking of booking.

It felt like a home from home, we were astounded at how comfortable everything was and how much space we had. Beautiful bedding, great pillows, comfy sofas, wifi, tv, great kitchen. Also beautifully clean and well maintained. Everything you could need had been thought of!

The views and local area are stunning. I went for some lovely walks and there are so few cars, very relaxing.

If you book this I'm sure you would have a fantastic time.
