“A medieval paradise”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

If you love France, history, castles, good food and spectacular views, then Walnut Cottage is ideally situated in the heart of Tarn and Garonne, within easy driving distance of the most beautiful medieval locations in France.

The cottage is beautifully and painstakingly restored, with all the mod-cons. The owners' personal touches and effects make this a home-from-home comfortable stay. Set in a small, peaceful country village in St Michel de Vax, Walnut Cottage is where you can enjoy small family barbeques, go for local walks and make friends with the friendly locals. It is within easy access to places such as historic Albi, Cordes-Sur Ciel, Najac, Penne etc, all within a 40 minute scenic drive.

St Antonin (15 minute drive away) is a beautiful medieval village for all local amenities and activities and has a superb Sunday market. We enjoyed canoe rides down the Aveyron river in addition to river-side picnics. We arrived during all the festivities and local fetes. We were lucky to enjoy medieval jousting and costumes and celebrations for the Bastille Day. Go to the Tourist Information Office for details and timings.

We would definitely return to explore the region further. A visit is a must. You'll love it. A memorable holiday.

“Great getaway from it all cottage”
Reviewed 27 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Located in a small friendly village sitting in the hills above Saint Antonin Noble Val Walnut Cottage was a great base for exploring the many local walks, mountain bike tracks & surrounding area.
A vehicle is essential but Saint Antonin Noble Val can be reached on foot in a little over 1 hour on foot.
We found the cottage clean with all the amenities required but the garden was minimal with a hedge blocking the view. There is plenty of parking outside on the quite lane (We had four motorcycles) The steep path down the scrub land opposite isn't really worth a mention.
All in all a good value well appointed cottage.
