Holiday Rental House
The property lies midway between Toulouse and Carcassonne, amid the rolling hills of the Lauragais, the Pays de Cocagne (the land of plenty!). We live on the edge of Aguts, a quiet little village, with its beautiful church, 12th century castle, magnificent calvary and shady footpaths. The rolling hillsides hereabouts, with stone farm houses and their 'pigeonniers', old windmills and country lanes lined with plane trees and cypresses, illustrate why the area is known as “Little Tuscany”. Especially beautiful is the month of June, when the heavenly jasmine perfumes the whole garden and poolside. The long evenings and beautiful mornings are not to be missed!

Chante-Colline offers everything one could need for a restful and fulfilling holiday, in a beautiful region of the South-West of France. An entirely new gîte, finished in June 2008 in the west wing of the owner's house, but fully independent and private; surrounded by fields of wheat and sunflowers, with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. It is the only gîte on the property, which is a former post-house dating from 1790, built in pale stone on a very quiet country road. Two bedrooms (one large double, the other with two single beds) - both have en-suite bathrooms. A fully equipped kitchen/dining area plus flexible lounge space (with sofa bed) complete the internal arrangements. Outside there is a covered patio with good quality metal table and chairs plus a big garden (more furniture, plenty of shade and full-sized boule court) with fantastic views and sunsets. The large pool is on the left, in front of the main house - you will usually have it all to yourselves!More

Additional amenities & feature info
Living rooms The living rooms are finished throughout to a very high standard and decorated in pale, restful colours. The open plan lounge / dining area has a table and four chairs, sofa-bed, two comfortable armchairs, a flat screen TV with DVD player and a radio+CD player. With the sliding doors into the second bedroom fully open, the area becomes an L-shaped sitting room. There are independent electric radiators in all rooms and polished terracotta flooring throughout. The gîte is cool during the long, hot summer and cosy out of high season. Triple-panel sliding aluminium doors lead to the private sunny patio, which is fully tiled and covered by a translucent poly-carbonate roof, so is sheltered from rain and wind. This area, of approximately fifteen square metres, has a mosaic metal table and four chairs, flower tubs, parasol and barbecue. There are lovely views and breathtaking sunsets all through the year. Bedrooms The master bedroom has a king-size bed and solid pine furniture, with full-length mirror on the wardrobe. Door leads to en-suite bathroom. The wide picture window gives views over the garden towards the sunset and double-panel aluminium sliding doors on the left lead to the covered patio. An electric hair drier is available and the room also has an antique pine rocking chair, for those who like to read in peace before bed or early in the morning. The second bedroom is equipped with two single beds (which can be pushed together to make a large double), solid pine furniture and en-suite bathroom. The room has a good view south onto the swimming pool and double-panel wooden sliding doors lead into the lounge and kitchen area. All bed linen and towels are provided in the rental price. Both en-suite bathrooms have large shower cubicle, hand-basin with built-in cupboard, mirror and shelf, wall-mounted toilet and heated towel-rail. The bathrooms are fully tiled throughout from new. Kitchen facilities The kitchen is equipped with two electric rings, stainless-steel sink, cupboards, shelves, electric oven, micro-wave and fridge (freezer and washing machine nearby). In addition there is an electric kettle, cafetière, teapot, iron and ironing board.

About the neighbourhood
We live on the edge of Aguts, a quiet little village, with its beautiful church, 14th century castle, magnificent calvary and shady footpaths. The property lies midway between Albi, Toulouse and Carcassonne, amid the rolling hills of the Lauragais, the Pays de Cocagne (the land of plenty!). The Lauragais is an area of beautiful rolling hills, pale stone farmhouses with their magnificent “pigeonniers”, ancient windmills and narrow country roads lined with plane trees and cypresses. This area of South-West France is often called “la petite Toscane” but is a lot less well-known than its famous Italian counterpart.
How to get there
Cheap flights to the area are plentiful, with EasyJet into Toulouse or Ryanair into Carcassonne. Driving distances are long but the trip, across the valleys of the Dordogne and the Lot, is a delight. Be sure to build in at least one over-night stop in order to visit sites like Rocamadour, Sarlat or St Cirq Lapopie.
