The Long House, the Mas and the Petite Maison of the Mas d’Arjac, built in the 18th century, have been completely renovated by local artisans using traditional methods. They now combine charming stone and timbers with modern comforts to provide the perfect holiday home in the heart of the French countryside. Situated at the meeting point of the Aveyron, Lot and Tarn et Garonne departments, Arjac is a perfectly situated base for exploring this most beautiful corner of France. Najac, Villefranche de Rouergue and Saint Antonin Noble Val are all within a short drive. The accommodation to rent (30 June til 28 September 2018) consists of :
• The Long House with two double bedrooms (one en suite) and a further bedroom with three beds, a kitchen/dining room, a living room and a bathroom. There is a walled patio at the front of the Long House, and a lawn area to the rear.
• The Mas, the very stylish and comfortable owner's own home with one double bedroom with a kingsize bed or twin beds, and a second bedroom with two double beds, a living room, a kitchen/dining room and a bathroom.
• The Petite Maison, which consists of a double bedroom on the mezzanine level and a further single room on the ground floor would suit younger guests. Please note that guests in the Petite Maison use the bathroom facilities in either the Mas or the Long House.
Guests are invited to make the most of the meadows and woodland which form the Arjac estate. Guests of the Long House, the Mas and the Petite Maison have exclusive use of the 16 x 4m pool and its surrounding terrace.
The Mas d'Arjac is ideal for families and friends travelling together who require a little more space, and the accommodation is only available as one single booking. However, during the period 17 April til 30 June 2018 and 29 September til 2 November 2018, the Mas is unavailable and the Long House is the main rental unit and can be combined with the Petite Maison for additional accommodation, on one single booking.

About Simon Clark
Hi, my name is Simon Clark and I am the owner of Le Mas d'Arjac. I love this part of France and am completely in love with Arjac and the surrounding area! After a long career in tour operating working for a couple of Britain's best known travel companies, I decided to retrain as a teacher and have worked in one of the UK's most prestigious schools for the last 10 years as a teacher of French and Spanish. I love my main job, but the 18 weeks holiday a year has given me the chance to develop the Mas d'Arjac into a wonderful holiday home where I have been lucky enough to welcome and look after families from all over the world over the last nine years.
Simon Clark purchased this Farmhouse in 2007
Why Simon Clark chose Vailhourles
The Mas d'Arjac is superbly situated at the head of a valley, surrounded by woodland and fields, and is very green and very peaceful. The collection of stone buildings which forms the Mas is exceptionally picturesque, and the gardens, terraces and pool area are ample and well maintained for the benefit of our guests. I bought the property to create a haven of relaxation and good-living, and also to run a small arts centre in my upcoming retirement based on the recently restored Atelier which is a beautiful recital room and rehearsal space in the grounds. See my own website for details of yoga and other catered specialist weeks in the Spring and Autumn seasons.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
I had visited 29 properties in SW France before setting foot in Arjac. It was love at first sight! Most of all I loved its setting, the beauty of the stone buildings and the extensive terraced gardens and pool. Since restoring the Long House and the barn (now the Atelier) the Mas is attracting guests who appreciate the tranquility and high standards of accommodation. They also like the discreet service which we are able to provide (when required) for ideas for visits, restaurants, local markets etc enabling our guests to settle in and start relaxing more quickly.

Although we are in La France profonde, it is just 15 minutes by car to the ancient town of Villefranche de Rouergue. Villefranche is not only handy for its excellent shopping, restaurants, and Thursday market, but also has a fascinating history as a bastide – a fortified mediaeval town with a fine, arcaded central square and an imposing collegiate church. As a market town serving a huge rural area, Villefranche provides all ones practical needs in a stunning setting. There are no fewer than 10 of Les plus beaux villages de France within an hour’s drive of Arjac, as well as two Grand Sites de France, Conques and Albi. Easy half or full day outings can also be made to Saint Antonin Noble Val, Corde-sur-Ciel, Cahors, Figeac, Rocamadour, les Gouffres de Padirac, the Lot valley, St Cirque la Popie, Roquefort, the Viaduc de Millau, and the Gaillac wine region – all attractive and fascinating destinations.
Other Activities: Canoeing/kayaking from Saint Antonin Noble Val
