THE PROPERTY Le Petit Canard (The Little Duck) is a 100+year old farmhouse opened as a Chambre d'hôte in July 2016 after the house was lovingly renovated. It is set in the beautiful countryside of the Tarn region in the South West of France with far reaching views across rolling hills and is surrounded by lovingly landscaped gardens with a well, stone features and lots of outdoor seating (both shaded and sunny) to have breakfast or just somewhere to relax and maybe read a book.

Also available are outdoor games such as croquet and boules and free WiFi.
