We had a great time at the Schoolhouse in Blanc. David and Carlos were fantastic hosts and provided us with helpful local information and advice and some local produce which was much appreciated . The cottage was in a fabulous woodland setting off the beaten track, a great place to get away from it all with some fabulous walks right from the doorstep. We enjoyed seeing the local wildlife such as wild boar, deer, eagles and other animals in their natural habitat. Blanc proved to be a good base for exploring the wider area whether you are interested in wine and food, exploring local history or doing something more adventurous with places like Albi, Lac du Laouzas, Lacaune, Castres, Millau and the Tarn Gorges all within a reasonable distance in the car.
We thought we might miss UK TV and broadband but our hosts had an extensive DVD library which we were able to put to good use in the late evenings, relaxing with a glass or two of fine wine in front of a nice log burning fire. Overall we had a great time - thanks David and Carlos for helping to make our holiday such a good one.
La Violette is one of two gites adjoining each other, with the owner's house nearby. The gite has thick walls and small windows and has been nicely renovated by the owner. It is comfortable and well-equipped, everything you need is there. On arrival the fridge appeared to be filled with more food than we could consume in a week, never seen that before. John and Joanne are extremely hospitable and John is an excellent cook. The spot is perfect: Millau, Rodez, Lodève, and other interesting places can be reached in an hour. And Aveyron is beautiful, unspoilt and undiscovered yet by tourists. We very much enjoyed our stay.
