Situated in a pretty garden with its own private terrace it is the ideal location for exploring both St Antonin Noble Val and the surrounding area. Great for those who want to enjoy all that this region has to offer: cycling, hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, fishing and birdwatching. Alternatively visit the local Sunday farmer's market, explore ruined castles and narrow caves as well as gothic cathedrals and local vineyards. Spend the evenings dining at the local restaurants and leave the car at home!

The studio itself is open plan with a double bed, kitchenette and shower room. Tea and coffee are provided as well as all bedding and towels (for the pool shower and kitchen). There is a TV / DVD player with plenty of films to choose from as well as games and local guide books.
The terrace overlooks the above ground pool and is equipped with sun loungers as well as a table and chairs shaded by the walnut tree.
There is plenty of wildlife to see - red squirrels, woodpeckers and owls and 100m from the studio there is access to a private fishing spot where you can catch Barbel, Pike, Carp, Zander to name a few. Sadly mine always gets away!
The village has everything you need for your stay; supermarket, bank, post office, cinema (often with English films), newsagents. There are plenty of restaurants and bars too, some which overlook the river and cliffs as well as some great local places to go for a lazy afternoon either next to one of the beaches on the river or in yet another vibrant medieval town.
Throughout the year there are a whole host of festivals to go to. A few are:
Fete de la Musique - 21st June - a country wide festival whcih celebrates the true diversity of music (St Antonin's is 3 minutes from the studio!).
Fête des Battages - 1st weekend in August - a day long festival of traditional farming techniques culminating in a 6 course open air meal.
Fete de la pomme - Oct- where you can press your own apple juice!
Fêtes Médiévales - July (Cordes sur Ciel) & Sept (St. Antonin) includes all manner of medieval activities.
Plus during the summer months each village has it's own week long summer festival which can include drama, night markets, outdoor discos and generally a firework display.
In the village of St Antonin the festival is in August and has a magnificent firework display over the river.
