A village house in Najac...
Najac is one of the most beautiful villages in France and Maureen's much loved little home is right in the middle of it. Built along a ridge leading up to a castle, the walk to the local patisserie is a bit of a climb, however, when you stop to catch your breath and turn around, the view is absolutely worth it. So is the pastry at the end. The most apt way I can think of to describe this little village house is that it felt like home. It's charm and comfort, not to mention the view from the terrace, far outweighed any of the disadvantages of living in such close proximity to others. Something I'm not used to. I would like to thank Maureen for her care and thoughtfulness. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Thanks for the review:
I must say though that the hill to the bakery is probably necessary to balance the temptations to be found there!
Thank you, Maureen, for your warm welcome and charming property in Najac, a magical town in France. Wonderful terrace overlooking gardens and expansive tree-covered hills, comfortable bed and two toilets. Strong, effective wi-fi and landline phone. Glad to have GPS to get around on country roads. Local grocer and baker very friendly and helpful too. So much character: we highly recommend.
Well equipped ,furnished,clean
The property is very central, clean, well equipped and perfect for exploring Najac and the surrounding area. Lots of towels , bedlinen, a well equipped kitchen and good internet connection makes it a perfect base. Maureen's response time was fast as we were already in France. The terrace at the back gets the sun all day and has great views. Would definitely recommend it and stay again. Many thanks.
Another wonderful stay in this magical spot
People say that you shouldn’t go back to a place you really enjoyed. But there ARE exceptions! We revisited Maureen and Peter’s Najac townhouse in September, and were once again enthralled with the location and presentation of this atmospheric gite. Maureen was once again, very hospitable and accommodating. Everything we said in our posting of two ago, stands.
The hosts have thought of everything, which is so rare when you rent as a stranger from overseas. Proper cooking facilities, comfortable furniture (including a lovely bed) and lots of information on the local area (and wifi to help you obtain more information or catch up on emails etc)
Please visit the beautiful village, stay in this wonderful little townhouse with the BEST views from the rear deck, and understand why there are some places in France that are truly magical. Thanks once again, Maureen and Peter, for a wonderful stay.

Najac is perched on a ridge of rock high above a horseshoe bend in the Aveyron River. The village snakes along the spine up to the château. Most of this imposing castle is 13th century & was fortified by Alphonse de Poitiers, Comte de Toulouse, during the Albigeoise crusade (Cathar). Later, under the King, Phillippe le Bel, it was requisitioned as a prison for the Templiers. It fell into English hands during the hundred year’s war, until in 1368, it was returned to the Comte de Toulouse. Most of the houses in Najac are XVIth century & some of the older dating from XIVth century. There are two fountains, the oldest carved from a single piece of granite. This is the fountain in front of the house. The countryside is cut with deep wooded valleys, perfect for walking or visiting the historic sites nearby; hill top villages, bastide towns, the Toulouse Lautrec museum in Albi site UNESCO , or visiting the weekly markets, fetes & antique markets that almost every village has over the summer.
