Beautiful House, Stunning Pool (sole use), Gardens. Piano
Roubert is a beautiful white stone house with a large pool set in 3 acres of gardens, meadow and partly wooded land. It is a little piece of paradise in this charming part of south west France which benefits from the southern sun, lush greenery, excellent food and wine and bastide towns. Villages are especially charming as the local stone is creamy white.
The pool has been especially appreciated by guests as it is longer than most (42 feet long) allowing for a more satisfying swim. It has a very pretty setting, having a wide limestone surround, lavender borders and trees and meadow beyond. We also have a range of pool toys for children.
The spacious interior is light, modern and well appointed. Renovations have respected and enhanced the original character and features of this 19th century farmhouse. Outside the extensive grounds provide opportunities for swimming, table tennis, boules and croquet but also quiet gardens and sitting areas cater for those preferring more contemplative pursuits. There is a Yamaha Clavinova Electric piano available for use.
The gardens are extensive and include a herb garden, woods, meadow, a table tennis area, croquet, boules ...and several seating areas with tables or loungers and parasols.
The house is situated at the edge of a picturesque hamlet, in an area known as the golden triangle formed by the 3 medieval towns of Cordes sur Ciel, Gaillac and Albi (designated a world heritage site) and is a perfect base for exploring the many fortified hilltop bastide towns. The local countryside is undulating with vineyards - it is part of the famous Gaillac wine region - and outstanding restaurants are within easy reach. Just a few miles away, the Aveyron region brings dramatic contrast with deep gorges and fast flowing rivers, with kayaking and white water rafting available.
