“Totally exceeded my expectations!”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in September 2016

What a beautiful little place you have in Le Douluch. It totally exceeded my expectations,we all loved the area and were blown a way by the views .We went on a few day trips to Rodez , Albi,Roquefort and Conques but mainly stayed around the area. My favourite village is Estaing and I loved just sitting on the river drinking Rose'. We went to "Bras" for dinner which was totally decadent and amazing.
We met David the caretaker and had many chats with him about the area and France in general ,what a lovely man.
I want to thank you for sharing this wonderful valley with us Its truly magical.

“Idyllic setting in the French countryside”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in June 2016

This lovely old barn had all the conveniences and comforts we needed for a relaxing stay. It looked out over stunning views and was a great base while we took day trips and explored the beautiful towns, castles and surrounding countryside of this wonderful area of France. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The barn itself catered for 6 people comfortably with all you needed to cook and enjoy dinners and lunches around the large dining table or outside around the outdoor table. We loved buying fresh produce pates, cheeses baguettes and fresh fruit and vegies from the markets we went to on our trips. A bottle of wine only cost a few euros too, but there is also the 'local pub' in Estaing with amazing food. We had to go twice in our 2 week stay. The old villages and buildings are just like out of picture books, it was truly an experience to remember for a lifetime.

“A perfect place to experience "living In France", a home away from home.”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in September 2016

We returned to Le Douluch for an extended stay of 7 weeks from mid September 2016, having stayed there for 2 weeks in 2012. Returning to Le Douluch felt like coming home, as it is a home away from home with a relaxing atmosphere and great views over the rural and forested valley. We enjoyed relaxing days at Le Douluch in between day trips near and far to see the beautiful villages, and landscapes, and to visit highly recommended restaurants.
The house itself is comfortably furnished to a high standard with all the conveniences to self cater. One of the highlights was enjoying an authentic Sunday lunch at a nearby farmhouse inn. Also shopping for knives at nearby Laguiole is recommended.

“A highlight of southern France — great accommodation, great views, superb rural base for exploring”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in June 2014

If like me you like to get off the beaten track a bit, as well as city delights, this is just great! Perched high on a ridge in a really interesting mix of farmland and forest, with spectacular views, this is a peaceful retreat in amongst farms, tiny villages and quite challenging hilly terrain. The main local village, Estaing, ten minutes drive away, is on one of the ancient pilgrimage routes, so in summer you see plenty of walkers. The barn is a superb base for exploring the rural landscapes, vineyards, towns, markets, national parks and many historic sites and cultural monuments of the region. Don't miss a meal in the local pub! The barn itself is a marvellous spot for a memorable al-fresco meal on a long summer evening. Don't miss the Gorges du Tarn [a day's drive]. The local markets will tantalise your tastebuds with wonderful flavourful produce.

“Supremely relaxing”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I and our 9 year old stayed here last September/October 13. The house is perfect for a wind down. The scenery is breathtaking. It is very peaceful but quite remote. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is extremely well equipped and it was great to read all about the surrounding countryside and the list of suggested things to do, which are all well documented in the literature at the house. Highly recommended if you need some rest and want to enjoy living in the countryside for a spell. The supermarket is about a 10-15 minute drive away and has everything you need to stock up. The pool was also a bonus (although a tad chilly) with a child!
