Realmont, the nearest town, is a beautiful bastide with a surprisingly large market every Wednesday with a great choice of local produce . It is a thriving place with an excellent range of shops (all of which, apart from the supermarket, are open on Sunday mornings) and several bars & restaurants.
Albi, the capital city of the Tarn, is only 20 minutes away, with the tallest brick built cathedral in Europe - as is the picturesque town of Castres with the river Agout at its centre.
The Tarn cuisine is good country food, tasty, spicy, generous, colourful, but above all greatly varied : there are many restaurants to choose from.
Menus of course include meat : calf meat from Segala, Aveyron, Lauragais, duck, pigeon, poultry, pork and lamb; goat, ewe and cow cheeses. The local wines are from Gaillac, where there are some of the oldest vineyards in France.
Comfort and Luxury
A wood burner with logs provided. A washing machine, electric cooker and oven.
You would have access to a freezer which is in an outside barn.
Tourism and Leisure
It's fabulous country for walking, birdwatching, contemplating.
