Ariege is described by most travel writers as wild but accessible. This is a good description. Walkers on the 3000 foot peaks can occasionally encounter bears, and there is top class trout fishing, kayaking and walking in the area. Also, for those interested in cycling, there is a stage of the Tour de France starting in Areige.

The Aveyron and Tarn valleys can also offer fabulous fishing, cycling, skiing, potholing and golf, but Aveyron is most noted for the pre-historic ruins especially at Najac, and fortified chateaus, as well as the world's tallest bridge, the Millau viaduct. Also not to be missed on any Midi-Pyrenees holiday are the Roquefort Caves, or the gothic Ste-Cecile Cathedral at Albi.

For gastronomic delicacies or culture, Lot villas and the surrounding valleys are the place to find truffles, goose, duck and dark Cahar wines to finish a feast prepared from a self-catering holiday cottage. The traditional fairs and music festivals in Gers are vibrant and fun for individuals, couples or families.

But otherwise I found everything we needed. It is a charming place to stay because the high ceilings give it a real sense of space which is also helped by the fact that it is not over-furnished. The view is somewhat obstructed by the trees in front but one could see for miles by looking to the right Our request for extra sheets was met promptly and efficiently and all emails were also answered promptly which is a great help when one is trying to synchronise dates and flights. We hope to go back.....

The barn has great cooking facilities so we ate in every night. The neigbours are friendly (if you like donkeys, horses and deer). Col d'Aspin and the Tourmalet are nearby for cycyling enthusiasts and great walks with fantastic views. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would consider going back.

A car is a necessity as there is no transit in the village, and you will want to tour the nearby villages of Carennac and Rocamadour. Madame Diane is a gracious host.
