Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
Cantobre, Aveyron, Midi-Pyrenees
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 larger Griffon gite that can be rented with 3 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 and avoiding disappointment (there is a supplementary fee of 170 € for bookings of less than 7 nights - this is not included in initial quotes generated by this website) 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...

We have stayed several times in this lovely gite at the top of Castel Cantobre. It feels on its own and has breathtaking views over the beautiful valley below. The area is largely undiscovered by tourists; the Aveyron must be one of the most beautiful parts of France (in my opinion the most beautiful) and this gite is absolutely delightful...

Management response:

Thanks for the review, it's really nice having clients that leave as friends. I thought you were not going to do a review, so people wouldn't know about us and you could have us all to yourselves? ;-). Now you are going to have to book earler for next year.

The gite itself is very modern with all mod cons including wi-fi, satellite T.V etc and is very well maintained and is very...

Griffon is a great place for a family holiday in a beautiful part of France. It's well equipped, very well maintained and a clever adaptation of an ancient building. There's loads of space, both inside and out, for families either to have fun together or for individuals to disappear for quieter moments! The setting is stunning: at the top of...
