La Terrasse - Fantastic 200 year old converted barn with stunning views


Details of the Barn

We converted our 200 year old barn in 2008 to form a gorgeous 4 bedroomed gite on the edge of a tiny hilltop village in the golden triangle area of Tarn. After spending countless holidays in gites, we took great care in making sure our barn is ideal for providing the perfect accommodation for a relaxing holiday. Each floor has a twin and double bedroom, with both the top floor rooms having a large ensuite shower room and the lower floor rooms sharing a bathroom which also has a large shower. All the beds have comfortable mattresses with down toppers, down pillows and light summer duvets to give you a great nights sleep. Both the double rooms have french doors leading to private patio areas in the garden.

The first floor living room has a double height ceiling with huge original oak beams and large windows looking over a valley to the vineyards. There are 3 large couches, tv with English channels and lots of books and games. A hand-made oak staircase leads down to the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is fully fitted and has a dishwasher, smug range cooker with 2 ovens and a smug fridge. The large dining table comfortably seats 10.

Outside the kitchen is a large patio area with table and chairs for alfresco eating with stunning views. A path leads to the back of the barn where the 10 x 5 roman-ended pool sits surrounded by a fence for safety. The pool is surrounded by a large decked area with sun loungers and its elevated position gives great views.

La Terrasse is located in Cordes-sur-Ciel, Tarn

Itzac is in the middle of the area in Tarn known as the golden triangle between St Antonin, Gaillac and Cordes Ciel. The village sits on a hill and surrounds the little church at its heart. The buildings are all made from the local white stone and the oldest dates from the 13th century.

We are on the edge of the Gaillac vineyards with the nearest only 15 minutes walk away. There are numerous beautiful medieval hilltop villages such as Castelnau de Montmiral and Puycelsi dating back to cathar times within 15 minutes drive of the house. Cordes sur Ciel - the city in the sky - is one of the most visited villages in France and is well worth the walk to the top to see the ancient fortified gates and views across the surrounding countryside.

The oak covered causses are criss-crossed by old tracks so its a walkers and mountain biking paradise. You can kayak down the river Aveyron from St Antonin and Najac, play golf in Albi or visit the leisure park with lake swimming near Castelnau.
