Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday home in Tarn-et-Garonne - Carroue

9 bed Country house, Sleeps 20; 5 baths; gardens with pool and private cinema

The property is a 19thC Country house with high ceilings and large rooms, situated in a parkland setting. It is a 9 bedroomed Country house that is situated in a peaceful setting with views of the River Tarn, hills and surrounding farmland of sunflowers and fruit trees near the historical town of Montauban and Toulouse.

There are 2 terraces with dining furniture for 20 guests and a BBQ - perfect for al fresco dining on the warm evenings.

Enjoy the beautiful gardens from the covered terrace while having breakfast or in the evening with candle lit dinners.

Lounge by the pool while having cocktails or in the open plan pool house with kitchenette for that quick snack.

The pool is surrounded by lights with a large terrace area for dining. The pool has a safety cover and is fenced off for the security of children.

There are also 3 beautiful pigeonniers in the gardens of this country house, one of which is a private cinema room. A mini orchard with walnut, cherry, plums, figs and mirabelle trees.

This Country house is situated opposite the Tarn River with exclusive rights for fishing on the banks of the river due to its direct access. The river is great for fishing throughout the year. There is also an inflatable boat on site for a leisurely row down the river.

There is a horse riding school nearby and tennis courts, along with football and rugby pitch within 1 km.

This Country house is situated in an area that is quite popular with cycle enthusiasts. There are many beautiful cycling routes in the vicinity.

The property is equi-distant to 2 villages, Corbarieu and Reynes. This allows for a greater choice in local butchers and bakers. We are also only 10 mins drive from Montauban with its magnificent 17th Century Square and boutique shops and 40 mins from Toulouse.There is also a magnificent Cathedral near the Square in Montauban.

There are many local festivals in the summer and we sometimes have a fireworks display on the banks of the Tarn

River on the 1st Monday in August .

There are many activities through out the year and even an ice-rink for skating in December.

Toulouse is only 40 mins away and we are spoilt for choice in picturesque villages nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The swimming pool and grounds, the plums (crumble delicieux !) the cycle rides for the baguettes in Corbarieu. The expeditions out to Bruniquel, Montauban market (Sat), wine tasting at Fronton evening market & delicious local food at St Antonin Noble Val.The thrilling canoeing on the Averyon(we got soaked !), the Grottes Peche Merle, wandering around Villemur Sur Tarn ( wonderful hanging baskets ). The delicious fresh melons, peaches .....& of course the cheeses - the visit to the local farm ( La Ferme du Ramier ) mercredi.

We finished with a delicious meal at Auberge du Trinquet where we were wined and dined well & a superb end to a holiday formidable; enjoyed by everyone from 98 yr old great grannie to 2 yr old Felix. Many thanks.

Lovely, enjoyable holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary, with our three children, their partners and our grandchildren. We had a really enjoyable week and the children loved being in the pool every day. Also the cinema room was enjoyed every day. Tot was brilliant - there if we needed her but not if we didn't. She came with us to translate when our daughter needed the Doctors. Bruce was invaluable when my husband's MG broke down and we had to send to UK for parts - he loaned us tools to fit the new part. The house itself was lovely - perfect for playing cards (or games) in the evenings. Thank you for helping to make our holiday a success!

Un très beau lieu de vacances Great holiday scene

  • 5 of 5

We very well enjoyed our stay here with the great garden, pool and even some fruit trees. We ate some tasty mirabelles et prunes. The house is spacious and secure. We were a large group of 16 adults and 13 children between 7 months and 7 years old. And we were all fine in the spacious rooms. The swimming pool is large and the area lovely. We will come again :)

An Amazing Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in this beautiful old house, it was an ideal location for our wedding blessing. The gardens and surrounding countryside made this a stunning setting. We stayed for a week and rarely left the property except to visit the local village and nearby supermarkets for supplies. We had 13 adults and 5 children and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is extremely spacious spread over three floors all and the views were fabulous. The outside pool area was just perfect and became the the focus of most of the family gatherings, with it's covered kitchen area and ping pong table and large heated pool. Tot and Bruce were very accommodating and really made us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend this property you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: We are absolutely delighted that we were able to play a part in your wedding celebrations. The house is perfect for weddings and other family celebrations or just to get together with family and friends. The heated pool and gardens has wonderful views. There are many things to do onsite for the young and not so young or to do nothing at all. We also have fishing on the Tarn River.There are many beautiful villages to visit and Wine Tasting Houses nearby.

belle grande maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous sommes restés à Carroue à l'occasion d'un anniversaire lors d'un long week-end prolongé avec une vingtaine d'amis et enfants (dont des très petits).

La maison s'y prête très bien. Beaucoup de chambres de salles de bains et de toilettes font que l'on ne se marche pas sur les pieds, la cuisine est grande est bien équipée, les extérieurs sont aussi spacieux et bien entretenus.

La propriétaire est très gentille et discrète. nous en avons été très satisfaits!

Week end de fête entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 jours à 20 à faire la fête dans la maison.

Le cadre s'y prête à merveille: pas de voisins aux alentours et grands espaces.

Nous envisageons de relouer prochainement la maison tellement le WE était top!
