Gite Les Capelanies, with its own entrance, is attached to our stone Corps de Ferme built in the 1800s, situated down a private drive with parking set in 4 hectares of undulating farmland with beautiful views.
Conveniently situated to explore the surrounding areas with traditional markets, bastide towns, at least 10 of France's most beautiful and ancient villages - such as Najac, Cordes sur Ciel, Belcastle, Conques, to name but a few.
