From the moment we set foot inside the gate we loved this place. The first thing that hits you is the view over the water. On entering the house you can see everything is as the writeup says and as the pictures show. For the first few days we were, apart from a little light exploration, content to just sit on the patio and enjoy the peace and tranquility. Eating meals outside into the late evening is also a joy.
The village of Lincou doesn't have any shops but the the camping, a short walk along the river, sells bread etc to order and they also cook great pizzas and other things. The nearest supermarket is about 6km away.
M. Lamy is very welcoming and extremely helpful but you will need at least your school French. He is still working at adding some great facilities in the lower garden which will attract us even more to go back again.
Once you have exhausted yourselves relaxing there is the beautiful Tarn valley to explore with it's medieval villages and stunning views. There is a large collection of leaflets and maps in the house showing attractions for young and old alike.
We have stayed in gites all around France over the years and this is one of the best that we’ve visited. It is very rural, private and set in beautiful rolling and wooded countryside in a small hamlet, with the village of Rignac about 10 minutes away. We should have stayed longer than a week because there was so much to see in the surrounding area, Chateaux, gorges, medieval villages, rivers, castles and market towns are all within easy reach. The gite was perfect, well laid out and is very well equipped, even the TV has UK channels! Having a large private solar power heated swimming pool was just an added bonus. Lynne and Gary, the British owners, live nearby and were very welcoming and helpful.
