Our Castel incorporates two recently converted self contained holiday rentals (gîtes), both of which have magnificent views and are named after the local
(Griffon and Egyptian) vultures that often fly overhead.
The larger gîte can sleep up to 7 people and the smaller one up to 5 people, see below the photo panel for more information about each gite.
We are situated in the Aveyron department at the south-west corner of the Cévennes National Park just 80 minutes from the Mediterranean.
A 30 minute drive down the beautiful Dourbie valley brings you to the historic town of Millau where the crystal clear Dourbie (ideal for fishing)
meets the river Tarn that then winds through the town and passes under the world renowned Millau Viaduct.
More locally, a 10 minute drive up the Dourbie valley takes you to the 10th century village of Nant equipped with a variety of shops and restaurants.
From our rock we have a 360 degrees view looking up and down the Dourbie valley and also up the Trèvezel valley.
The area is a paradise for people with a variety of interests including walking
