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.
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 Trevezel valley.
The area is a paradise for people with a variety of interests including walking, bird watching, fly fishing, cycling, paragliding,
canoeing, geocaching, butterflies, orchids,
the Tarn & Jonte gorges, fantastic scenery, Roquefort cheese, Knights Templar fortified villages...
This year we have bought hand held satellite GPS (Global Positioning System) devices and are programming them with the local walks to help you make the most of all our paths and tracks.
The GPS devices also contain hundreds of local Geocaches to turn your sightseeing trips into treasure hunts, ideal if you have children!
Both gîtes have very well equipped kitchens, washing and drying machines and for the occasional rainy day the living rooms are equipped with Terrestrial Television which provides French channels
and a Satellite receiver to watch UK Freesat channels and more.
We share our own library with you so you can read a book or two while you stay with us, the library
also contains many CDs and DVDs that you can play on the DVD player provided. Free secure WiFi internet is also available.
For more information about each gîte see below the photo panel and

gîte can sleep up to 7 people and has 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with 2 single beds
and one with a double and single bed.
It has 2 bathrooms and the kitchen/dining room has a large 10 person oak dining table.
The living room opens onto a south facing patio terrace with magnificent views over the river Dourbie and the valley.
If needed, an adjoining double bedroom (that we normally keep available for bed and breakfast clients) is available with an en suite bathroom
and its own independent entrance. This increases the capacity to 9 people.
gîte sleeping up to 5 people is built against the rock face so it keeps cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
It has a double bedroom and a larger second bedroom with a double and single bed. Shower and washing facilities are provided by a shower room, a separate WC and sink, and a bathroom with shower, WC and sink.
The kitchen opens into the dining/living room which in turn opens onto its own south facing patio terrace overlooking the river Dourbie and the valley.
Both gîtes can be booked separately or together. A 100m walk gets you from The Egyptian gîte to The Griffon gîte or the garden.
