About this listing
Gary and Andrea Yelen are an Australian couple who are loving the village of St Antonin Noble Val. Your rooms are on the top floor of our gallery & studio home - in the heart of the village. We offer: one freshly painted big yellow bedroom; a small comfy sunroom - with kitchette for some basic the/cafe/baguette preparation; your own bathroom and loo.
We can lend you a bicycle or two, show you around the place, and we can also make time for some painting or (website hidden) Antonin Noble Val - is a beautiful historic village on the Aveyron River among the Gorges Averyon. That means excellent canoeing (loads of canoe hire within a few hundred metres), endless Pied Radonnes (?) (walking tracks); great cycling and rock climbing.
And of course - we have a boulangerie, brocante, sunday market and streets dotted with artisans and ateliers. :-) Everything you need within walking distance!
The nearest train stations are Caussade, Lexos, and Montauban - and we can pick you up and show your around (for a small transport fee).

Had a great overnight stay in Gary's house in the beautiful town of St Antonin. Gary was an interesting person to meet and helped us to enjoy the place. We loved canoeing next morning on the river. Loads of room in the second floor apartment we stayed in but watch the low beam near the bathroom.
Gary was my knight in shining armour and came to rescue me when I had a major problem with my bike. Thanks also to his wife in Australia for forwarding the messages ( sorry for disturbing your sleep!)
Their house is very conveniently located in the centre of town in a very interesting and quirky building above Gary's gallery.
My mother and I loved our stay at Frukt. Gary welcomed us offered us refreshments and after some conversation about St Antonin, showed us up to our room. Which we were happy to discover was the whole top floor, including a spacious bedroom and bathroom, and a little dining area, with fridge.
We felt very welcome to make ourselves at home, and come and go as we pleased.
Gary is the perfect host, with a natural ability to make guests feel at home, and a fun sense of humour. He was happy to respond to all of our questions, and also allow us our independence.
We highly recommend a visit!
We had a wonderful time at Frukt with Gary. He made us feel so welcome, introducing us to several locals and having dinner with us one night. We loved the three story historic building. We had most of the top floor, the bottom floor is Gary's studio and he lives on the second floor. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and Gary was very quiet and unobtrusive. Saint Antonin Noble Val is a beautiful oldtown with exceptionally friendly people. Sunday is market day and well worth going to. It is surrounded by other lovely historic villages. We would thoroughly recommend both Frukt accommodation and Saint Antonin for a visit!
We had a magical timein st. Antonin and the Frukt Galerie is an interesting creative space. We stayed in the upper room with beautiful views overlooking the Marie. Gary was very welcoming , I can highly recommend the spot and have high hopes for a return visit . Tracy Davey April 2015
Gary est très gentil, nous avons été très bien reçus. Nous avons très bien dormis. L'endroit est extrêmement calme. Et malgré, la fraîcheur en cette saison nous n'avons pas eu froid.
