Fantastic holiday here in 2017

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a relaxing holiday with our extended family (three sisters, husbands, and children) in August 2017 and it was fabulous. The accommodation was spacious, well equipped, well maintained, and very clean. The pool was great and a real suntrap (although you have to mindful of splinters from the decking in places). The table tennis was a particularly big hit with the more competitive members of our family.

We've stayed as a large group in many villas in France over the past 10 years, and we all agreed that this was one of the best. We enjoyed being able to walk into the village of Angles for croissants and other daily essentials, as well as an expresso at the café (many of the previous villas we've stayed in have been very isolated).

We also liked the slightly cooler evenings due to the elevation of Angles - we all slept really well! All in all, a great week and we hope to return again.

Véritable "maison de famille"

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné une semaine à la Tourelle avec nos enfants et petits-enfants.

Il y a 8 chambres décorées avec goût, ce qui fait que tout le monde a son intimité et 4 salles de bains très jolies également.

La cuisine est fonctionnelle et comme il a fait très beau, nous avons toujours mangé dehors à l'ombre d'un grand arbre.

Une grande piscine bien abritée du vent.

Et une petite forêt où les enfants ont pu faire des cabanes ainsi qu'une grande pièce qui leur servait de salle de jeux.

Bref, nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans cette maison.

Tom, le propriétaire est très gentil et accueillant. Il n'a pas hésité à rentrer d'Angleterre pour résoudre un problème électrique.

A 20 min, il y a une baignade aménagée et surveillée sur le lac de la Raviège. Sinon il faut savoir que dans ce coin du Tarn, les routes sont très sinueuses.

Si il y avait un seul petit bémol, ce serait pour le peu de place de parking. Vu la taille de la location, on arrive avec 3, 4 voitures et il n'y a pas d'autre solution que de les garer devant la maison.

Mais c'est mineur au vu de tous les attraits de la maison.

A beautiful property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at La Tourelle last summer 2016.

We came as a large group for an active break- offering a cycling swimming and running getaway to active families on a WholeHealth holiday. We took over the house for three weeks, and it was perfect for our needs. The rooms are beautiful, and the large grounds were perfect for the kids in our group to play in, as well as the pool which kept them entertained most days.

A car was needed to get to the nearby towns, but we did lots of our exploring by bike on the lovely quiet roads, through villages and up climbs in the area. Everything we needed could be bought in the local village, and we enjoyed the regular markets including the night market. Supermarkets were further afield, but were combined with a trip to the pool at Castres, which again was a big hit with the kids with its massive slides, and adjacent restaurant providing a full day's entertainment.

Tom and Liz could not have been more helpful in making us all welcome, helping us to discover the area, and feeling like friends when we shared a barbecue at the end of our stay. I would recommend the property to anyone who is seeking a peaceful break in the French countryside, especially those who like us enjoy an active break.

Thank you, and we hope to be back again!

A great find for a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two weeks at La Tourelle and loved every minute. The first week was with 9 family members, and in the second a number of friends joined us, maxing out at 13 staying. The house coped with us all well, especially as the weather allowed us to eat al fresco. The bedrooms all had their own character, all were clean and uncluttered. Everyone in my party commented on the comfort of the beds, and duvets were provided all round. Towels were also provided as well as towels for round the pool as well. The 4 bathrooms had a boutique hotel feel about them, nicely laid out and decorated - with just the one on the 2nd floor being a little smaller, but with a large walk in shower. Downstairs there are 3 rooms (no toilet though), large kitchen with all the appliances and utensils you would need, a dinning room which was great for late night cards. The lounge had a large flat screen TV with freeview, which was perfect for the Olympics!

We used the pool everyday, although it is at the front of the property the bushes have grown up well and it is now completely hidden from the road. It's not a diving pool but was perfect for playing on lilos and rings. We just had to beat the younger members of our party to the sun loungers in the morning!

It was worth heading this far south for the excellent weather, some of us drove the whole day from northern France, whilst other flew into Toulouse and hired a car. Angles was a friendly village with all the basics covered as far as food was concerned. A great local cafe as well which was a good stop after collecting the bread in the morning. The restaurant in the village was closed, but we went to auberge de la souque, which is just 7k down the road and was excellent with simple food cooked well.

Tom the owner ensured we had everything we needed and was contactable when we had questions about anything. The house is old and has character, so is not perfect, but had everything we needed to ensure we had a great holiday. Visit gorge d'heric which is about 50k west of angles for a good day playing in river pools (not white water rafting!).

The sun hits the front of the house in the morning so it was great for sitting outside for breakfast. In the evening the house is shaded from the sun, but it was still a great place to sit outside and eat before it got dark. It was a long way to travel, but the house worked beautifully for us... A great find.

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

Three families - 6 adults and 6 kids had a great time. House is absoloutely fabulous, very large, spotless and tastefully decorated. Location is authentic France, away from the crowds. The kids loved the pool, the garden, the grounds. There was always something for them to do, areas to be explored. The bedrooms were so comfortable that all of us managed to sleep in most mornings.

Les Angles down the road provided our morning croissants, evening wine and most groceries that we needed.

Lac de Raviege was the favourite spot with fab lake beach, playground for kids, boats to hire and nice picnic area.

Highly recommended.

Mairead.

accueil très agréable

  • 3 of 5

La Tourelle est une maison très agréable qui a été rénovée en conservant le charme de l'ancien. Elle est très bien équipée et sa superficie permet à chacun d'avoir son petit espace. Les propriétaires bien qu'habitant juste à côté sont d'une extrême discrétion et très sympathiques.

Seul petite bémol la piscine un peu vieille autour de laquelle nous nous sommes mis plusieurs échardes à cause de l'usure du bois et qui était assez fraiche.
