Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself and my family (wife and 3 kids aged 11, 8 and 7) had a great time. The house we stayed in was very clean and had plenty of room for all the family. Even though the weather was very hot, the house was pleasantly cool at night.

There was some great mountain walks in the vicinity of the house and we also went kayaking with the whole family. There is also some spectacular scenery, especially La Sidobre, in the area.

We were within easy driving distance of popular tourist destinations of Carcasonne, Castres and Toulouse. We also visited the village of Roquefort and the Millau Suspension Bridge, which was a longer drive at about 2 hours. There are also plenty of supermarkets and restaurants within 30 minutes driving of the property

All of the kids said they would love to go back and stay there, which is always a good indicator for me, as if they didn't have a great time, they would not have said that.

The Sage Holiday home offers self-catering accommodation close to Brassac in the beautiful department of Tarn. The house is 5 minutes walk from the quaint rural village of Cambounes, situated in the Parc Naturel Regional Du Haut-Languedoc, in the foothills of the Montagne Noire, in one of the most scenic regions of the south-west of France. The area is well known for hiking and mountain biking and the local town of Brassac hosted the French championship in mountain biking descents in May 2011. Walking and mountain biking trails criss-cross every corner of the area and the famous GR36 passes right by the cottage. The well known pilgrimage trail ‘Chemin de St. Jacques de Compostelle’ (GR653) portrayed in the recent Hollywood film ‘The Way’ joins the GR36 in the communal forest of Cambounes. The area has several fresh water lakes with full amenities such as beach, life guards, restaurant, snack bar & water sports. The beautiful towns of Catres & Mazamet are only 20 mins drive. Both offer fresh markets, good shopping and great dining opportunities. The UNESCO world heritage sites of Carcassonne & Albi are 1 hour away. The capital of the region ‘La ville rose’ Toulouse is an hour and half to the west. The Mediterranean cities of Narbonne and Beziers are just an hour and half drive. The region has a proud rugby tradition and is host to several top league clubs such as Castres Olympique, Stade Toulousain, Albi and Montpellier. There are plenty of other interesting places to visit such as the Sidobre national park (and it's amazing granite rock formations), the Millau bridge, Roquefort, Lautrec, Gaillac, too many to mention here. Come and experience real French living in this unspoilt region.
