Why Kids Love it

This is a kids’ dream house for all ages with plenty of space to roam inside and out and a brightly colored bedroom that will surely delight with its bunkbeds (sleeps 4) and a slide. A separate room sleeps another 2 in a charming rustic bunkbed. The kids’ playroom is where they can dive into the dressing up box, play the board games provided or relax with a film. Outside there are lawns for ball games and skittles, indoor games in the barn darts, pool table and table football, and the heated swimming pool with a large shallow end – perfect for toddlers and younger kids who like to paddle. There’s also a play area with 2 swings, slides and a climbing frame. The local village 2km away has a playground and a pizza van that visits the main square every Wednesday in summer.

About the Location

La Félicité is situated just outside a small hamlet in the Tarn et Garonne department, Midi-Pyrénées. There’s a village 2km away and the nearest town is Caylus (12km) – pick up local produce at its market on a Tuesday and Saturday morning. Further afield is the beautiful Najac (20km) with medieval architecture including a 13th ruined chateau surrounded by green forests. Other places to explore are the Sunday market at Saint-Antonin Noble Val, the 12th century hilltop village of Cordes-sur-Ciel and Albi. If you love the outdoors, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy with here – try your hand at canoeing, kayaking, caving, climbing, mountain-biking, fishing, tree-top trails or exploring the incredible Aveyron gorges. Fly into Toulouse-Blagnac Airport (around 1 hr, 30 mins by car).

Style Notes

Glorious rustic luxury. The magical ancient farmhouse is as enchanting as it is beautiful. Ancient wood beams criss cross whitewashed walls. There are ancient fireplaces, natural stone floors and bare stone walls. Splashes of color abound with deep velvet sofas and armchairs or the scarlet woodburning stove. Rustic character has been preserved with the original bread oven in one of the bedrooms and the individual shape of each annexe hints at its history. Hand-crafted additions include the incredible walnut sliding doors in the main bedroom, the elm window seat in kitchen and the wonderful custom-made bunk beds in the kids’ rooms. We love the decadent roll top bath next to the woodburning stove in La Pigeonnière; the beautiful heated pool with views that stretch to the mountains; and the open plan, double height kitchen, just made for entertaining.
