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.
The 7 of us had a superb week! The house is full of character, the rooms comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with utensils. The pool is superb and the children enjoyed the table tennis. This house is located in a very peaceful rural setting - sitting having dinner watching the sun set, the local church become floodlit and the stars come out was the perfect end to each day. Albi is well worth visiting, as is Cordes-Sur-Ciel. We also enjoyed a day canoeing down the Tarn from Trebas to Ambialet (take swim stuff and a picnic). Would definitely return!.
