Situated a short walk from the medieval working village of Entraygues, overlooking the river Truyere , our one bedroom Gite is the ideal place for discovering one of France's best kept secrets, the beautiful department of Aveyron.
This department has more beautiful villages than any other department of France.
The accommodation consist of a living dining area with satellite TV, DVD player, sofa, dining set, book case of English and French books and DVDs. There is a well equipped kitchen with gas cooker and hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge freezer and floor to ceiling cupboards. There is one bedroom with a double bed and wardrobe. A separate WC. A new shower room with shower and basin. Bedding, bath and beach towels are included. Gas, electric and water are inclusive in the price. So is the use of a safe and wifi. There is also a washing machine, iron and a hair dryer.
Outside there is a large terrace with views of the bridge and the river. The terrace has table and chairs, sun loungers, BBQs and seats. There is a private swimming pool for our guests to use, which is fed by spring water and has sun loungers and seats next to it, as well as a large private garden by the side of the river with sun loungers and a table and chairs under the walnut tree. We also have off road parking and if required the use of a small garage.
There are other Gites in the area that need a car to get into the village, we are just a short walk over the bridge from the shops, restaurants, bars, bakers etc.
Entraygues sur Truyere is a working village, primarily farming and tourism. There are all the usual amenities including a small cinema and a bank.
During the summer there are weekly farmers markets and festivals through out the year.
The village is situated on the confluent where the rivers Lot and Truyere meet and so there are many activities on the rivers such as canoeing and fishing. The area is fantastic for wildlife watching. We have seen kingfishers, herons, fish, coypu and cormorants on the river as well as buzzards and deer in the garden.
We are road side but the Gite is above the garage and so road noise is reduced.
Vue du Pont would make the ideal base to explore Aveyron and the nearby Auvergne or just to wander round historic Entraygues.
