Aquaval outdoor swimming pool is a great day out for families. Regular summer events and free live entertainment take place in Lautrec and nearby towns. Just a short drive away is Castres with everything from boutique shops to Michelin restaurants and Realmont, which hosts one of the best local markets in the area. Gaillac is the home of the local wine. In the month of August you can blend music with wine tasting at Gaillac's music festivals. Albi (30kms) the capital city of the Tarn region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its also home to the world famous Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, housing a major collection of the artist's work. And why not treat yourself to an aromatherapy or hot stone massage with the owner, Sheda Savage, a perfect start to your holiday. NOTE: If Gite Martinet is booked why not stay in Gite Rossignol for the same price as Gite Martinet if there are only 2 of you.More

Additional amenities & feature info
The location of South Tarn Gites is rural but not far from Lautrec Village (less than 5 kms), Castres (10 kms) and Albi (30 kms) all of which have restaurants, bars, cafes and supermarkets.There is a walking and cycling trail close by (1.5kms) so ideal for discovering other hamlets and villages. Or you could just relax and stay in the large garden (7000 sq mtrs) by passing your time away birdwatching. There are golden orieles, variety of woodpeckers, nuthatch, red squirrels, etc. Too numerous to mention them all. They are attracted to the orchard as are other fauna and flora. When the fruit trees (and walnuts, hazelnuts,almonds) are ripe you are welcome to help yourself.

About the neighbourhood
The Tarn region as a whole is an ideal place to relax and unwind; said to be a 'a little tuscany' in France. There are a variety of outdoor activities for you to choose from, such as horse-riding, golf, swimming, sailing, wind surfing, canoeing, off-road buggies, walking, cycling and nature trails, a bird sanctuary and many more. Castres is a beautiful town built on the banks of the River Agout and is just a ten minute drive. It has a return boat trip from the centre to Parc Gourjade, where you can spend the day playing golf and park games or visit the large indoor and outdoor swimming pools and ice skating at L'Archipel. Or simply take a picnic. For art lovers, Castres has one of the largest Hispanic collections in France, at the Goya Museum in the Town Centre. Albi is the capit...
