set within the rolling hills of the Aveyron The Barn at Pertus is a converted 17th century traditional stone and slate barn, completely restored to provide self-catering accommodation for 6/7.
Restored by local craftsmen, the ancient exterior, with its beautiful stone walls and traditional fish scale slate roof, is complemented by a contemporary, cool and airy interior, with tiled floors and full height vaulted ceiling. Large windows and doors flood the living area with light and lead out to a fabulous deck with views over the countryside.
The ground floor consists of a large open plan kitchen and lounge area, bathroom, and double bedroom. There are French windows that lead out to a terrace which has a dining table and chairs.
Upstairs has two twin bedrooms, one of which has an additional pull out bed if required and another bathroom. It has a fully-fenced garden with orchard and a newly installed heating system for the swimming pool. (The pool is open May to October). There are swings and slides for younger children. There is excellent WiFi and Netflix.
The Barn is ideal for families or for those looking for peace and quiet in a stunning area of south west France.
Pertus is a tiny hamlet situated at the end of a rural lane amidst the rolling hills and woodlands of the Aveyron department of south-west France and lies within the Midi-Pyrenees region. We are the only full time residents of the hamlet. The grounds of the property are divided into 2 parts. One being the holiday property with its own private garden (not overlooked in any way) with the pool being on a lower terrace. Our house is in the other part with our own private gardens very separate from the holiday cottage. It is 1.5km from La Bastide L’Eveque, an ancient village dating from the 15th century with a boulangerie and bar/restaurant. Approximately 10km from Villefranche de Rouergue, a traditional medieval town with great shopping including weekly food markets and large supermarkets. The river life is vibrant, offering canoeing, kayaking and an array of cafes and restaurants.
From Pertus there are wonderful trails and quiet roads for walking, cycling and mountain biking.
Other nearby famous bastide/medieval towns include Najac, Cordes, St Antonin, St Cirque Lapopie, Belcastel and Sauveterre de Rouergue. The medieval cities of Rodez, Albi and Cahors are all within easy driving distance, as are the magnificent Tarn gorges, beautiful Lot river and amazing Millau viaduct.
There is plenty here to entertain you, including mountain bikes, children's swings, badminton, pool inflatables, games and more...
Winter Breaks -
The barn is ideal for winter breaks as it has central and under-floor heating, plus insulated/double glazed. Prices are inclusive of heating, linen etc. There is plenty to see and do but without the heat and crowds! The pool is open from spring to autumn.
We look forward to welcoming you to Pertus, a special holiday location for all to enjoy....
