The Local Area
The local village is within walking distance where you will find all amenities, including a small but very well-stocked supermarket, boucherie, boulangerie, and a bar/restaurant. There are plenty of places to explore nearby, including Albi, Castres, Cordes sur Ciel and Gaillac. The local area is teaming with wildlife too.
We're Pippa and Marcus Evans. We moved to France from the South of England in Oct 2016. We spent the first year here renovating parts of the main building and adding a pool for our guests. Since then, we've explored much of the wider area and local restaurants together and with friends and family and will happily provide recommendations of places to visits, things to see and places to eat.
We live on site with two labradors and a cat. Marcus is a French speaker with a passion for cooking and Pippa runs her own business as a Virtual PA and is enjoying countryside living.
