Our Castel incorporates two recently converted self contained holiday rentals (gîtes), both have magnificent views and are named after the local (Griffon and Egyptian) vultures that often fly overhead. The one referred to here is the smaller Egyptian gite that can be rented with 2 or 1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

We give a discount of 10% for couples who only want to use one bedroom so let us know when you send your request and we will adjust the cost for you. For more on pricing see the 'Pricing' notes below.

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 throu...

Cantonese is in itself a wonderland of history and mountain views. The site was everything we hoped for and more. Lionel and Peggy were the hosts we all wish for when we book a rental.

Well equipped and comfortable gite in a beautiful and peaceful location. The Egyptian private terrace provides a panoramic view across the Dourbie Valley. Use of the garden was great for our 11 year old daughter and two dogs, especially in the evening when we enjoyed...More

About the neighbourhood
Millau (27kms away at the confluence of Dourbie and the Tarn rivers) is a small vibrant town with enough shops and hyper-markets for most people's needs. Market days are Wednesdays and Fridays while the villages more local to us have markets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is known for its Viaduct built in 2004, outdoor sports activities and Haute Couture leather industry.

More locally, the village of Nant 6 kms away provides us with butchers, bakers, restaurants, bars, convenience stores, a newsagent, post office, swimming pool in high season and an excellent tourist office.

Places to visit include the historic Knights Templar fortified villages, giant limestone caverns big enough to put cathedrals in and Roquefort for its cheese. For me, the main reason to come here is the beauty of...
