Additional Location Information

A CAR IS NECESSARY

CANOEING and KAYAKING is very popular on the river Aveyron - there are may places in St Antonin-Noble-Val where you can hire them.

WALKING and CYCLING. There are many varied and well-marked paths for ramblers to enjoy - the tourist Information centres have books and maps of all these routes and we also have two sturdy mountain bikes for you to use.

The Bastides or fortified hill-top villages such as Cordes-sur-Ciel, Bruniquel, Castelnau-Montmiral, Puycelci and Penne du Tarn are well worth a visit. This area formed the northern part of the Cathar region during the Albigensian Crusades, and its history makes fascinating reading.

The Local outdoor markets are wonderful places to buy your fresh local vegetables, cheese and wine, then sitting down at one of the numerous cafes for a much needed coffee or 'pression' (beer). Our nearest markets are St. Antonin-Noble-Val on Sunday mornings, Caussade on Mondays, and Gaillac on Fridays.

And what about the LOCAL WINE? A 15 minute drive south from Fabre towards Albi or Gaillac and you’re in the heart of the GAILLAC vineyards. Most are small independent ‘domains’ and are open for visitors to taste and buy these fine wines. We particularly like the reds, and for summer there is a light slightly fizzy white wine called Perlé - delicious served chilled on hot summer evenings! You will also find local champenoise, white and rosé wines made in the Gaillac region.

Restaurants - there are many in the area serving mainly traditional French cuisine.

Flea markets/garage sales/antiques fairs are known as vides greniers/brocantes here in France. Many of the villages and towns have at least one sale during the summer months and we go to as many as possible, so if you are interested let us know and we’ll pass on the details.

Music and street theatre festivals are a plenty. The best is at VAOUR - Eté de Vaour - the first week in August.
