Our two well appointed gites, Oriole and Rossignol, are set in a peaceful, rural location & have been created from a barn adjoining our house. They are a 10 minute drive from the market town of Realmont and 20 minutes from Albi, the capital of the Tarn. Realmont has a lovely market, shops, cafes and a number of restaurants. The wine region Gaillac is only 30 minutes away with Toulouse Blagnac airport being just over an hour away.

Champagnol is situated in the Tarn, Midi Pyrenees region of Southern France.

The two gites, Oriole and Rossignol, are set in 4 acres of attractive gardens in a hamlet 7 miles from the picturesque market town of Realmont. Realmont has a lively market on a Wednesday morning, restaurants, cafes and a wide range of services and shops.

Albi, the capital of the Tarn is only 14 miles away with its magnificent Cathedral overlooking the Toulouse Lautrec museum, excellent restaurants, cafes and shops.

The area offers a wealth of historic towns - Cordes-sur-Ciel, Carcassonne and Castres to mention but a few. Lots of country markets and summer festivals are all within close proximity. Numerous walks, 4 golf courses (including a championship golf course which is about 20 minutes away) & a leisure lake are all nearby as well.

Each gite has a fully equipped kitchen with hob/oven, microwave, washing machine, bathroom with full-size bath & shower, large living/dining area with mezzanine bedroom, private garden with BBQ & access to secluded heated pool with views over the well kept gardens. Prices include electricity, gas, bed linen, bath & pool towels.

If the Oriole gîte is unavailable I may have availability in Rossignol which is adjoining Oriole gîte. This property can be booked with the Rossignol Gite to accomodate 4 people.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept children or pets.

We keep going back!

A little slice of Heaven away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. You will feel very relaxed anytime of the day here as it is so lovely, quiet and peaceful, just the sound of the odd dog bark or the birds in the trees. The pool is so inviting, sun all day, set in a spacious beautifully kept mature garden, with loungers, chairs and tables for you to use. Oriole Gite, is spotlessly clean, bright and airy. It has everything you need in the kitchen to enjoy making tasty French meals to enjoy in the comfy dinning area inside or better still enjoy in your own private terrace or garden. Downstairs you also have a comfy sofa to relax in the evening enjoying the games or books provided, a bathroom with power shower and an enormous bath to sink into. Leading upstairs you have a large changing area, storage and a king sized bed, beautiful bedding, nestled under a skylight, blinds there, but who wants to block out the amazing view of the stars! Open beams also add to it’s warmth and charm. If your looking for a real get away… Look no further!

Amazing property, clean, bright and very comfortable ample room for 2 people

Almost a home from home downstairs quite modern: a kitchen supplied with many cooking utensils, a micro wave, toaster and washing machine. The bathroom had a over bath power shower, but it was the size of the bath that took us by surprize...it was very huge! The living/dinning room was roomy and relaxing to spend the evening. They also supplied and interesting mix of books and a DVD player to play your own music on. Upstairs amongst the open wooden beams(beautiful) is the bedroom in ''Oriole'' we had a dressing room first (great to store all the cases) along with hanging space and big dressing table with lots of draws. In the roof is a velux window if you like to watch the stars. Outside of '' Oriole'' you have a small private garden with table and chairs to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or to sit and enjoy the view. The grounds and distant views are breath taking trees, fields, hills and more trees as far as the eye can see. The ''sound of silence'' will ring in your ears as you relax on loungers or chairs by the very inviting pool or take a dip or swim in it sparkling warm blue water. Location wise it is situated in a very good place to visit Toulous, Albi, Castres to name a few. Castres is a fantastic place to eat, many places French restaurants, including a square with fountain, to eat, but also where you''ll find food from around the world. The owners supply very detailed instructions as how to find the Gites which is very helpful when your tired after a long drive. Also a book with lots of information of what to do and places to visit. Oh! mustn''t forget you must visit ''lac de la bancaile'' only about 10 minutes from the Gites just to look at the breath taking scenery or have a dip in the warm fresh water. All in all we had a fantastic 2 week visit in August 2017 and look forward to visiting again soon.

Great accommodation (super logement)
