TARN-ET-GARONNE FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL IN STUNNING LOCATION

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Verfeil - Le Dragon Vert

Stone 3 bed house wiith internet/email, rural location yet close to amenities

Le Dragon Vert is set amongst woods and fields in the lovely Vallee du Seye. It is reached via a drive, set away from the road and is in an elevated position with glorious views acros the valley. The house has a private pool (8m x 4m, depth 1m to 2.5m), together with a brick-built barbecue, within its large, secluded garden.

The pool has an alarm and is fenced, in accordance with French law. There is a large table and chairs in a shaded patio area of the garden, perfect for outside dining. The farmhouse has three bedrooms, sleeping six people in total. The master bedroom is tastefully furnished with white French country-style furniture and has views across the garden and valley. This has a double bed and a single bed, with wardrobe and chest of drawers. The second bedroom is full of light and is equally beautifully furnished with a double bed, sofa/divan/day bed (which can be a double or single bed also), a large chest of drawers and a floor to ceiling height window with doors and Juliette balcony. The sunny, large kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, etc, plus another large dining table and six chairs. French doors lead to the garden. The house is one hour from Toulouse Airport or Rodez Airport. Nearest facilities are in Verfeil, a five-minute drive away. Stunning St Antonin-Noble Val is a fifteen-minute drive away - not to be missed.

St Antonin-Noble-Val: This stunning Medieval town is considered to be one of the most picture-perfect towns in France, with its winding streets, shady squares and many cafes and restaurants. The backdrop to this lovely town is the towering Roc d'Anglars, part of the spectacular Gorge. The Gorge stretches for miles and presents perfect opportunities for exploring by foot, bicycle or on horseback. The River Aveyron is the centrepiece for the area and St Antonin is an excellent base for canoeing along the River's tranquil course through the Gorge and picturesque wooded valleys. This whole area of the Tarn-et-Garonne is known for its stunning woodland areas and totally unspoilt bastide towns and villages - a retreat from the modern world and the perfect place to unwind.

Villefranche-de-Rouergue: Villefranche is another stunning 13th century bastide town, 20 miles from the property, easily reached by car. It is a lively town, with many cafes, restaurants and designer gift and clothes shops. The town has two charming main streets, with a spectacular main square - Place Notre Dame - which is known as the loveliest bastide central square in the region. The old bridge and riverfront are delightful, with hotels and cafes situated alongside, affording beautiful views and excellent dining!

Albi: Albi is simply 'to die for'! It is a wonderful Medieval town, with its architectural heritage totally preserved. The old bridge, dating from 1035, is still in use today. Albi - besides being a beautiful place to visit - is the home of the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum and holds the largest public collection in the world devoted to Toulouse-Lautrec.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We liked the gite very much - it is very pretty and lovely on a hot day. The interior of the house is very pretty, as is the exterior. Loved the pool area. Overall, a fantastic relaxing stay and we would very much like to return.

Lovely property and friendly, helpful owners

  • 5 out of 5
We had a really excellent fortnight at Le Dragon Vert.

I'll mention the only criticisms first. The third bedroom is very small and wasn't appropriate for an 18-year old, especially given it had bunk beds in! Also note that there is only one WC and it's on the ground floor; that is in the description though. Neither are enough to detract from a five star rating.


The property is well maintained and was immaculate on arrival. The pool is great, especially on some very hot days we had.

The housekeeper, Mimi is really helpful and friendly and goes out of her way to answer any queries.

The location is very good. The village bakery is about 15 minutes walk away. There's a restaurant too. There are immediate neighbours but they are quiet and very nice. Plenty of walks nearby in lovely, unspoilt countryside.

Within an hour's drive, there are loads of beautiful towns, such as Albi, Cahors, Cordes, Caylus, St Antonin, Villefranche and Varen and others we didn't get round to visiting.

The owners answered lots of questions before we went. No hesitation in recommending this lovely house.

Thank you Caralyn!

Enjoyable family holiday

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great week at Le dragon Vert, we found this property very clean and comfortable the living room was particulaly cosy with a "home from home" feel. We came to this region to visit friends and this property was perfectly position for that reason but there are many places of interest and stunning scenery around and anyone visiting with children must get directions to
Cap D'Couverte, it is well worth the journey (about 45 mins). We were very lucky with the weather and therefore made full use of the pool,Bar BQ and table tennis. All in all we had a very enjoyable week and hope to return again.

Close to beautiful St Antonin-Noble-Val, this restored farmhouse with private pool and three bedrooms sleeps 6 easily. It is in a rural area, overlooking the lovely wooded Valee du Seye. Canoeing is available on the River Aveyron nearby. The abundant wildlife in the area is a great attraction, as is the soaring height of the Gorge, where exploration is a must. The Gorge can be explored by bicycle, horseback or on foot or even paragliding! The area around the house is stunning and there are lavender fields and vineyards all around. There is a patisserie and bar/restaurant in nearby Verfeil-sur-Seye, with a full range of facilities available in St Antonin (15 minute drive) or Villefranche-du-Rouergue (25 minute drive), where there is a large selection of restaurants, cafes and designer shops. The house offers comfortable, cosy accommodation for a romantic, relaxing holiday in stunning surroundings all year round. It also has Sky TV, dishwasher and wood burner.(www.ledragonvert.com)
