About Farzana Tubby

I arrived in 2004 with my husband who sadly passed away 12 years ago. I love living in France and from time to time go to the UK to visit my daughters and grandchildren. Love going back to Blighty but love it even more when I am back to the peace and tranquility of Pérard and realise why we left the UK in the first place.

I now live here with my partner and three little dogs, 2 cats and several chickens to keep me busy when I am not cleaning Gîtes or changing beds.

Farzana Tubby purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Farzana Tubby chose Caylus

Came to the SW of France on holiday after several holidays and property searches in the Provence when my children were very young and rented both Gîtes. Fell in love with the property and area immediately. The weather was much more temperate then in the Provence. Asked the then owner if they would sell us the house and she said yes, but in 10 years. 10 years later, kids all installed in Universities we bought the house in 2003 and moved in 2004.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is isolated and away from the hustle and bustle of a town. Lovely countryside all around the property. No roads or cars so children and animals are free to roam totally safe. South facing so sunshine all day.

The property since we bought has evolved. The previous owners pristine English gardens have all but gone and are now a wild natural, chemical free garden blending in with the rustic charm of the medieval house and stone walls.

Fabulous family friendly holiday

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this holiday accommodation to anyone, we had a fantastic holiday. We have two children aged 5 and 7 and the farmhouse was very comfortable and well equipped complete with toys, dvd's and books to keep you entertained. Stunning views of the most magnificent countryside. You really are in the middle of no where yet still a short drive away to some gorgeous little villages. Everything included for a lovely relaxed holiday, pool was well maintained albeit a touch chilly! Farzana was very welcoming, attentive and a lovely lady, we will definately be coming back!

A lovely, unexpected gem near Caylus, France

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had were so delighted when we turned the corner to see Perard for the first time.

The farm house is very pretty and in a lovely setting and we received a very warm welcome from Farzana, which made us feel at home immediately. Our Gite was simple but perfect for us and absolutely immaculate.

We had ordered chicken basque in advance, it was absolutely delicious and served up in a lovely Le Creuset Pot.

The pool was a good size for the number of guests and set at the front of the farm-house, very picturesque.

We also loved the dogs, so cute.

The evenings were relaxing, we were able to barbecue and eat outside - no need for the TV, although there was one.

Our favourite trips were to St Cirque Lapopie for a delicious lunch and canoeing down the gorge from St Antonin Nobel Val.

Farzana also invited us to a Paella night, which we accepted, but didn't feel any pressure to do so. Farzana and her family and friends were great - a fabulous night.

We really loved our stay.

Perfect rural gite

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week here in August 2013 with our 4, 3 and 1 year old girls. The gite is like a home from home - comfortable and well equipped. We loved the view from the terrace across the fields and the fact that our girls could run freely in 'our' garden, watching bees, collecting flowers. We had some lovely walks in the surrounding village and countryside, and lots of swims in the pool. There are some wonderful villages to visit (Najac, St Cirq). Swimming in the river near Cazals was a highlight. Highly recommended if you want to get away from it all in a breathtaking area of France.

Welcoming wildflower paradise by the pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Perard. The owner was totally welcoming and helpful as well as being a great cook. The gite was very comfortable and clean and set in stunning wildflower gardens with uninterrupted views of surrounding countryside. Lots to do in the surrounding area too. Definitely recommended.

Wonderfully peaceful

  • 5 of 5

After a stressful year with work all of our worries melted away as soon we laid eyes on this picture perfect French farmhouse. The accommodation is clean, spacious and most importantly the only thing we could hear was the trees rustling in the wind. For the first 3 days we cooked, drank and relaxed reading books by the pool. We then decided to venture further a field to visit the local market towns and even managed a horse ride and canoe trip down the river! I would recommend this for anyone looking to totally relax in traditional France. We will certainly be returning to marvellous little utopia.

Our wonderful week at Perard, Caylus!

  • 5 of 5

My young Family and I were on our first driving holiday to the Tarne-et-Garone region of France on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed at Perard a few years back. We had high expectations and we were not disappointed as we pulled in and were immediately blown away by the charm of the house and spectacular surrounding views. Farzana the warm and welcoming owner settled us in and was tremendously helpful in providing information on the region and things we could do. The property was very family friendly, spacious yet cosy. My kids loved playing in the pool and grounds not to mention our dog Bruce had a jolly old time too! It was such a peaceful and magical week to treasure that I have a sneaky suspicion we'll be back next year!
