“perfect house, perfect location - perfect holiday!”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Blancou was everything I had hoped for - a beautifully restored and well equipped farmhouse in a gorgeous location, (some might call it remote, but it was our ideal spot) with a lovely garden and a pool with a view of the Aveyron gorge. The house is spacious and the family could be together or have as much privacy as we liked. The 'Tower;' was an additional delight! We enjoyed eating in the lovely farmhouse kitchen - and outside. Playing games (equipment provided) in the huge garden was lots of fun for us all - but we also enjoyed many quiet moments listening to the birds or watching the sun go down.
Alison and Peter are warm, welcoming and helpful - readily on hand but not at all intrusive.
The area is a delight - St Antonin is a gem but our top highlight was canoeing down from Feneyrols to Cazals.
Our only wish was to stay longer - we will definitely be back!

“Magical place”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent 2 weeks at this lovely place. The house was lovely, the garden was a joy and the views were fantastic, not to mention the pool. Alison & Pete were the perfect hosts and we hope to return.

“Special place close to a lovely village”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A wonderful location on top of a hill overlooking open countryside and opposite a gorge. What a fantastic spot. A warm welcome on arrival from Alison and Peter who were always on hand when needed. St Antonin is a gorgeous place with lots of lovely places to eat. Lots to do and great places to visit. The Tour de France came through while we were there which was super exciting. Everybody friendly. Would definitely return if we were in the area.

“Beautiful refurbished farm house”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Beautiful farm house refurbished to a very high standard set in an idyllic elevated position above the St. Antonin Nobel Val gorge.

The house is surrounded by large lawn areas with abundant wildlife. The property is secluded and you can relax next to the pool and listen to the wildlife.

The house has wifi and satellite TV although we never felt the need to watch the TV being to busy sitting outside in the evening drinking wine.

Pete and Alison where most welcoming hosts who gave us great advice about some bars/restaurants and sent us to a great kayaking company. When one of our party had a minor medical emergency they immediately arranged a local doctor to attend the property.

In short we had a fantastic holiday and we would definitely like to return.

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From first coming through the gates we knew we were going to have a perfect holiday. House and grounds are beautifully maintained with lovely views over Averyron gorge....what better place for a swim? House is a converted farmhouse with lots of period features with plenty of living space.

The owners v helpful and friendly. They gave uis lots of advice about local places to visit and best vineyard etc....

Chickens and geese are managed by the owners and add to the character and holiday experience as does the herb garden to dip into..

You must visit and we will definitely be returning!
