Holiday Rental House
The Parsley Holiday home offers self-catering accommodation in the beautiful department of Tarn. The house is 5 minutes walk from the quaint rural village of Cambounes, situated in the Natral Regional Park of Haut-Languedoc, in the foothills of the Lacaune and the Black mountains, in one of the most scenic regions of the south-west of France. The area is well known for hiking and mountain biking and the local town of Brassac has hosted the French championship in mountain biking descents several times. Walking and mountain biking trails criss-cross every corner of the area and the famous GR36 passes right by the cottage.

The well known pilgrimage trail Chemin de St. Jacques de Compostelle (GR653) portrayed in the recent Hollywood film 'The Way' joins the GR36 in the communal forest of Cambounes. The area has several fresh water lakes with full amenities such as beach, life guards, restaurant, snack bar & water sports. The beautiful market towns of Catres & Mazamet are only 20 mins drive. Both offer fresh markets, good shopping and great dining opportunities. The UNESCO world heritage sites of Carcassonne & Albi are 1 hour away. The capital of the region 'La ville rose' Toulouse is an hour and half to the west. The Mediterranean cities of Narbonne and Beziers are under two hours drive. The region has a proud rugby tradition and is host to several top league clubs such as Castres Olympique, Stade Toulousain, Albi and Montpellier. There are plenty of other interesting places to visit such as the Sidobre national park (and it's amazing granite rock formations), the Millau bridge, Roquefort, Lautrec, Gaillac, too many to mention here. Come and experience real French living in this unspoilt region. The Parsley holiday home is a renovated stone farmhouse dating back almost 300 years. The accommodation is split over two levels. The first level is accessed from the raised wooden terrace and contains an open living room dining area with corner kitchen and a wood burning stove. There is also a little porch on this level. On the next level there is a large open bedroom, bright and spacy with a double and a single bed. The bathroom is also located on this level. There are double doors which open from the living room on to the raised wooden terrace, where there is a garden table and chairs and a barbeque for your use.

Nous étions déçus par ces commentaires. Nous ne sommes pas responsables pour les réseaux portables ni les characteristics de la nature en compagne. Nous essayons de tous faire pour que nos visiteurs passent un bon séjour dans notre petit coin rurale de France.

STILLY, GREENY, AT THE HEART OF SUMMER........AND THE BAND OF CRICKETS FOR MUSIC...
Myself and my son stayed at the Parsley in the month of August and my, what a wonderful experience! The house was charming and quirky in appearance and spotless, with everything we could need to make it a home from home. Add to that the friendliness and welcome of our host Una and her family, and the perfect holiday location was ours! With daily visits from Guinness (a lovely colly dog) and Missy (a little Jack Russell), never a dull moment. The west-facing gite spoilt us with beautiful sunsets and together with the sound of a small nearby river to send us to sleep...sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine was always the perfect end to an action packed day (whether visiting the walled city of Cacassone, spending the afternoon at L'Archipel Water Park, exploring Le Sidobre or The Space Centre in Toulouse)......I would highly recommend this beautiful place to anybody...

Sublime location
Spent 2 weeks here with my wife and 2 children (10 and 8) and have to say that Una and her family looked after us very well,the location is stunning beyond words.The surrounding area is beautiful with plenty of sightseeing opportunities,and many a walk was done. Una was extremely helpful in guiding us to where to go and the many places of interests to visit,she even recommended the best places to eat which was great also as im a bit of a foodie. I have no hesitation in recommending the parsley holiday home and Una in particular and we cant wait to go back on vacation next summer.

Une semaine à Cambounès
Nous avons passé une agréable semaine en famille début août dans le charmant petit village de Cambounès. La région est magnifique, verdoyante, beaucoup de belles balades à faire. Les habitants sont très sympathiques et chaleureux. Nous conseillons cet endroit pour les personnes aimant les beaux paysages, les balades assez physiques, et les rencontres amicales.

Getting away from it all!
We found our stay at The Parsley most enjoyable. The accommodation was lovely and quaint and afforded great privacy. Una, the owner could not have done more for us. She advised us on all aspects of the surrounding area without being intrusive in any way. She and her family made us feel most welcome. The holiday home has everything you would need on holiday. We were a family of two adults and our 5 year old son so it was perfect for us. It is cosy and rustic. The surrounding area is quiet and affords many great walking, trekking and cycling opportunities. It would be typical rural France I presume. A car is essential to get around. Castres. Mazamet, Albi, Carcassonne are within easy reach.It is advisable to stock up on supplies as the nearest shop about 20 minutes away.There are nearer small grocery and boulangerie but they might only open for a few hours or maybe not every day. There are plenty interesting places to visit and Una has many brochures and leaflets available in the holiday home. Overall, I would rate this property highly and have no hesitation recommending it if you are after a tranquil setting.

Thank you very much for your comments. It was a real pleasure for us to share our little corner of rural France with you. We enjoyed having you around and hope we'll have the pleasure again some time. Regards Una
