Holiday Rental House
The Sage 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 Parc Naturel Regional Du Haut-Languedoc, in the foothills of the Montagne Noire, 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 hosted the French championship in mountain biking descents in May 2011. 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 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 just an hour and half 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 house is over 200 years old and built from granite stone from this area. The original features have been maintained and the house has electric heating in all rooms, and also a woodburning stove in the livingroom. The accommodation is very comfortable and designed to be your 'home from home' while you are staying with us. The Sage house has 2 bedrooms, both with a double bed, and a mezanine bedroom with double bed, and sleeps up to 6. The house has a fitted kitchen, with electric hob, fan oven, fridge and microwave. They are furnished with everything you could need for your stay with us including laundry facilities. If there is anything else you need, we're on hand to help. We have laundry facilities available in the complex. EXTERNAL FACILITIES Outside there is a lovely garden terrace with barbeque where you can sit and relax in the sunshine and the herbs. There are garden tables and chairs, and sun loungers for your use. The area is very tranquil and relaxing and the views are lovely. More

About the neighbourhood
Tarn offers a beautiful living environment and is the perfect location for an activity holiday. Nature has kindly provided us with glorious hills and valleys offering an abundance of hiking & mountain biking trails. The rivers and lakes offer canoeing and swimming and water sports. The mountain roads are perfect for cyclists & offer plenty of challenges for the more serious cyclist. But apart from the range of activities it's a beautiful place to spend a relaxing holiday and just enjoy the scenery, the lovely places to visit and the renowned regional foods & wines. Some of the great places to visit from our area; The beautiful city of Albi with it's incredible cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site / Castres with it's lovely old quarter & the famous Goya museum / the beautiful market to...
