This 19th century cottage is situated in the medieval village of Valon, located on the edge of the Carladez, North Aveyron, (Midi-Pyrénées). The cottage is tucked away at the end of the village, providing comfortable accommodation for 2 people.

A 12th Century Château sits in the centre of the village which is surrounded by sweet chestnut forest. The River Truyère lies below the village, creating dramatic gorges on its way down to join the River Lot at Entraygues-sur-Truyère 21 km away.

Set in over 50 acres of unspoilt forest, an extensive terrace garden and 140 metres sq of living space there is plenty of free space to enjoy.

Our location allows a very relaxing holiday, enjoy the peace and calm of this unspoilt countryside. Those who wish to explore further we are close to many activities, excellent restaurants and other picturesque towns and villages.

We recently opened a contemporary gallery in Valon and create new pieces for sale in the workshop below it.
