The Space

Luxurious house in Southern France, Aveyron, between Cahors and Toulouse. The house is build in the 15th century and has a fantastic view over the valley with the river Viaur.

Totally renovated, stylish and colorful decorated, living with fireplace, 3 bedrooms for max 8 pers., large bathroom with bathtub, shower, large living kitchen fully equipped. Comfortable by the B&O stereo (iPod-ready), B&O TV’s, DVD players, washer, dryer, dishwasher, 2 fridges, 1 freezer, bread baking machine. And of course: WIFI.

The house has a terrace with a view over the valley and a spacious garden. During the Summer, usually all activities are in the kitchen and outside on the furnished terrace or patio.

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.

  • 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!

  • We are a family of 5 with 3 children including a newborn. We immediately felt like home. We were very well welcomed with a nice bottle of local wine waiting for us (thanks again for that!).
    Very nice and big kitchen (very well equipped!), very pleasant terrace with an exceptional view on the river and the countryside, house very well furnished.
    The area is extremelly quiet - you discover what silence really means! At night the sky is breathtaking.
    The only negative point with young children is the access to the river which is a bit difficult.

  • Tha Siang-Lan house is a like a sweet confortable cocoon in a beautiful country, a perfect place to spend relaxing holidays with family and/or friends. Everybody talks about the view, but no picture could explain the sunrise just in the axe of the river.
    When we arrived the house was very clean, bedrooms so spacious, and the kitchen is fantastic to cook; I have the feeling that the hosts like good food and good wines, like us !
    There is a lot of things to do surrounding : sport in the rivers, villages (Najac @15mn), markets... Albi city is at 50min driving, and so beautiful, don't miss the Toulouse Lautrec Museum.
    Siang Lan was also a perfect host, and so it was a real pleasure to live in her house. We will keep this adress as one of the best we know !!

  • My husband and I have never felt so sad to leave a holiday home as we were leaving Lasbinals. The pictures can't do the place justice, especially THAT view. We were given some local tips from Siang-Lan and as a result enjoyed some local river swimming and exploring. We'd also highly recommend the food market at Najac, lunch at nearby Relais Mont Le Viaur and going further afield, a day trip to the spectacular Cevennes National Park. The house is clean, stylish and bohemian with loads of really cool objects and and a wonderful kitchen which is equipped with everything you could want if you are a keen cook. The area is stunning with amazing views at every turn. The locals are really friendly and the area isn't nearly as touristy as others like the Dordogne. Siang-Lan has been a pleasure to correspond with, answers emails very quickly and provided lots of info about the house. We can't wait to go back!

  • This house really has an spectacular View! The surroundings are beautiful. I stayed here with my family and we had an excellent time. The owner, Siang-Lan, provided us with a lot of interesting information about the area (chateaus, supermarkets, swimming locations, markets etc..).
    In the house books, kitchen equipment etc is available in abundance.
    The house is clean and has an big kitchen with a long kitchen table were you can comfortably enjoy diner with 10 persons.
    Siang-Lan was a great host and answered messages always really quick. I really can recommend this place!

  • We had a lovely week at lasbinals, felt like paradise. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The patio and garden was stunning, with the most amazing view. We brought food and wine from the markets and dined outside every night. The river is about a 10 minute walk down the hill and is very secluded and a perfect swimming spot, we had it to ourselves each time we went. Lasbinals is perfect for a very relaxing and chilled out time with family and friends. But if you want to be more active, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. We visited a few villages and markets, and spent an afternoon kayaking down the river. Would definately come back and recommend it to family and friends.
