The house is situated in a typical French hameau (hamlet) Lasbinals which exists out of 3 premises. The house is located at a dead end road, so you can enjoy the quietness of the countryside. You can walk down to the river for a private swim and the surroundings offer bike tours (we have 2 available), walking, canoeing, fishing, climbing etc. The area is famous for it’s culinary dishes, like confit de canard, duck liver, sausages, local cheese. Visit the farmers markets in the neighbourhood. On 20 min distance of the Gaillac AOC wine region, where you can do wine tastings and buy wine at the producers (Domaines).
At a 10min drive there is the main village where you'll find a good bakery, gourmet butcher, an ATM, postoffice and other stores.
You will need a car for your transportation.
No pets, no smoking
We had a wonderful time in Lasbinals. The house was great, the view was amazing, the fog in the morning in the valley was wonderful, the river was beautiful. Very well equiped kitchen, good regional ingredients and all the herbs you need in the garden. Nice villages to visit on a short distance. We had a great holiday with our 2 and 4 year old sun!
une maison vraiment charmante, en pleine nature avec une vue a couper le souffle, idéale en famille avec tout le confort nécessaire. La cuisine est super avec tous les ustensiles.
Un chouette moment entre copains.
La maison est décrite comme luxueuse ce qui n'est pas le cas. C'est une jolie maison rustique mais les photos sont particulièrement flatteuses!!
Nous n'avons pas eu de connexion Internet durant toute la durée de notre séjour et personne n'a été capable de régler le problème. Malheureusement nous avions besoin d'Internet pour des raisons professionnelles ce qui nous a sérieusement compliqué la vie.
De plus au niveau téléphonique il n'y a quasiment pas de réseau ce qui n'a pas facilité les choses.
Il n'est pas précisé dans le descriptif que même si la maison est isolée elle est quand même accolée à une autre maison habitée en permanence. Cela n'a pas été un problème mais mériterait quand même d'être mentionné pour ceux qui recherchent à être vraiment isolés!
Dernier point: la literie (matelas et oreillers) est dans un état de propreté des plus douteux avec des taches et sans aucune protection
Beautiful house, beautiful landscape. Highlights are kitchen that looks great and truly has all you need for cooking, the dining space, the terrace with the great view and of course the river. You can walk down to the river within 10 minutes and will encounter a totally secluded spot that permits you to swim in the warm and mellow river. Unforgettable! When you need more than two bedrooms be aware that the bedroom under the roof can get quite hot during the summer. Great overall experience! To be recommended and to be repeated.
What more can we add? This is an exceptional property. The house was beautifully prepared, and the rental was dealt with efficiently at every stage. Our hosts could not have been more thoughtful or generous.
Well, we loved Siang-Lan's place so much we came back for a whole month. Just as beautiful in the Autumn and we hope to return again one day.
We had a really wonderful few days in this house. The area around is so beautiful and full of history. The views when you open the doors at the back of the house are amazing. We are a young couple and wanted a few days to relax and this was the perfect place to do it. The house is so well equipped and we loved having the bbq in the garden. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine from the local region and there was a really detailed manual which gave us plenty to do. The shop owners in the local town were so friendly too and the local produce was really tasty!
