Description from owner

Description

The village of Blanc overlooks the unspoilt valley of the Sanctus in southern France, where wild boar, deer and hawks roam freely through the natural chestnut woodland. Pure mountain air and streams provide a protected environment for rare plants, and with no ground light you're guaranteed fantastic night skies.

Surrounded by protected parkland, Blanc consists of the remains of a 10th century chateau, a church, and several traditional stone houses, with an orchard and terraces overlooking the valley.

This two-bedroom restored stone cottage faces across the village to the chateau. It's comfortably furnished in a contemporary style in wood and terracotta. Front and rear terraces offer the choice of spectacular village views or wooded seclusion.

NB: the first floor has a sloping roof, which may be unsuitable for taller guests.

In summer, guests have the use of a large private pool 10 minutes' walk away which is shared between all the gites.

A wood burner and electric radiators keep the house warm and cosy when it's cold outside.

Besides its abundant natural riches, Blanc is well placed for exploring the region's cultural heritage, from the gastronomic delights of Languedoc wines and Roquefort cheese to the historic Templar and Hospitaller citadels of the Rouergue. And the Mediterranean coast is just 80km away.

Come to Blanc and experience a way of life that only the south of France can provide.
