The age and design of the property means that it cannot be toddler proof in all respects.
Come and relax; explore if you wish !
There is a substantial Intermarche Supermarket on the near outskirts of Moissac, where you can buy everything you would want, but do not fail to visit the pretty market square of Moissac and its VII Century Abbey and Cloisters.
In the town there are several good restaurants and an excellent Cave (Wine Shop), if you wish to buy some superior wines. The local plonk of Fronton or Gaillac is excellent, can be bought in draft at the Cave. Ensure it is chilled in the fridge in hot weather- more refreshing. A local white you will enjoy from Pau is Juracon Sec - good plonk: Juracon Doux- excellent with Foie Gras -a local speciality.
There is a market somewhere everyday of the week within easy distance of the house. Details are in the house.
The wild life is extensive and there are many walks from the house through the forests and fields to be enjoyed.
Down at Moissac and the surrounding area you can enjoy walks along the Canal de Garonne/ Canal du Midi and the rivers Tarn and Garonne. If waterskiing on the Tarn is not for you, there is a large watersports centre at St Nicholas de La Grave (15k).
Further afield is the Gorges D'Averyon at St Antonin de Noble Val, and the Lot Valley. The area is peppered with fortified Bastide Towns, a hangover from the Cathars and the 12 Century. A long, but memorable day trip is to the Millau Viaduct.
If really desperate there is a Zoo in the Dordogne near to Rocamadour, which in itself very spectacular.
If you want to go to the Pyrennes/Lourdes via the Gers region it is about three hours through spectacular countryside, full of sunflowers, and fascinating towns of Nerac and Condom, both in the Bas Armangnac region!
