Property Summary

In an elevated position overlooking the beautiful Dourdou valley, this ancient red sandstone property has been carefully and lovingly restored to modern standards, while retaining much of the original charm and character.

Surrounded by fields and chestnut woods the tranquil location will suit those who love nature and the countryside. A walker’s paradise.

The property consists of a main floor split between two adjoining rooms, one a large open plan farmhouse kitchen with dining and cosy seating areas. The other a spacious triple aspect sitting room, with oak floor and traditional fireplace.

The upper floor consists of three light and airy double bedrooms, one en suite. There is a further family bathroom and separate WC. On the lower level there is a useful utility room, a fully tiled shower room with WC., a boiler room and a 'cave'.

Together with pretty gardens, woodlands, and in-ground swimming pool the property extends to more than 2 acres (9500m2).

The property’s situation is peaceful, but not isolated, and is afforded a high degree of privacy being accessed by a long tree-lined driveway. Close by you will find the charming market town of Marcillac-Vallon with shops, lively Sunday market, supermarket, doctors, cafes, restaurants and well renowned schools. In 30 minutes, you can be in Rodez, the bustling Aveyron capital, with hypermarkets, theatres, museums and many cultural events staged throughout the year. Picturesque Conques, a UNESCO world heritage site, is a scenic 25 minute drive away. The river Lot, with activities including canoeing, kayaking and fishing is within the hour. There is also skiing on the Aubrac (1hr) or at Lioran (2hrs).

Rodez airport is an easy 25 minute drive from the property, with flights to London Stanstead, Paris, Brussels and Dublin. Rodez SNCF railway station provides good connections. Cross channel ferry ports and tunnel are reachable within a day.

Steeped in history, the Aveyron is one of the least spoiled, most authentic regions of France. Rugged, rural and little known by many it truly is “la France profonde”. Boasting ten of "les Plus Beaux Villages de France" the region remains proudly traditional, but is equally acclaimed for embracing modernity, with the likes of the breath taking Millau viaduct, the Soulages Museum and several Michelin starred restaurants just waiting to be discovered.
