Location

Villefranche-d'Albigeois, Occitanie, France

We are situated close to the village of Villefranche d'Albigeois, 5 minutes in the car or 25-30 minutes walk. There is a good small supermarket, butcher, bakery, bar/restaurant and pharmacy.
The gite is close to the Tarn Valley and the river is normally quiet in the summer, allowing swimming, canoeing and fishing. Cycling is very popular and there are marked cycle roads and trails. Battery assisted cycles can be hired from the tourist office in Ambialet, about 15 minutes drive.
There are good markets in the surrounding towns, and interesting places to visit such as the bastide towns, Cordes sur Ciel, Puycelsi, Castelnau de Montmiral, as well as Lautrec (for Pastel) and many more.
For walkers, there are many trails, including sections of the GR36 which are easily accessible from the gite.
La Merise nestles in a quiet, rural part of France, in beautiful countryside yet close to amenities and the city of Albi. Being surrounded by farmland and woodland, we have a great variety of wildlife. Birds seen here include Buzzards, kestrels, Hoopoes, Swallows, House Martins, Woodpeckers, both green and spotted, and many finches and buntings.
There are deer and foxes and the deer often come into the garden early in the morning.

We live in the house next to the gite. We do not use the pool when we have guests in the gite. There is a comprehensive information pack and we will do our best to answer any questions or suggestions on places to visit. We will be happy to do this over an apero!
