We are a family site and whilst we are happy to have adult only groups we are not really suitable for large groups of young adults who like to party late into the evening, out of respect for the other gite renters and our neighbours.

I stayed here last October with my family for my sixtieth birthday and we used the whole site. Julie and Andy couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Andy chopped the firewood and showed the men how to light the fires (yes, very definately sexist!)...More

A super place for a family holiday - we've stayed on three separate occasions! Julie and Andy are on site so it's great for getting info quickly. Very quiet area and you really feel you're experiencing the real France. A great base too for exploring...More

Stayed for a two week family holiday; Julie and Andy very helpful before, during, & after our holiday. Lots of nice extra services like making a meal for us to arrive to. The gites were both very nice, we had a lovely time.

About the neighbourhood
The hamlet of Teillet lies on the Aveyron/Tarn border, half way between the two historic cities of Rodez and Albi. Both cities offer a wealth of architecture, amazing Cathedrals, bustling backstreets to explore and endless outside dining possibilities. Within the area are many bastide villages, many ranking in the category of 'most beautiful villages in France'. Most noteable are: Conques; Sauveterre de Rouergue; Villefranche de Rouergue; St Antonin de Noble Val; Najac; Cordes-sur-ciel and Monasties and the list continues. All of these villages offer unique shops, crafts, markets, and festivals. The 'nocturne' (night markets) in the summer months are not to be missed. Day excursions: Albi/Rodez - great for a glimpse of the history + architecture in the region (stylish shopping too!...
