Perfect for those seeking peace and tranquility in comfortable and stylish setting. Stunning views and 5 minute walk to medieval village with shops, bars, restaurants.
Luxury fittings and extra touches.
Super Kingsize bed and sitting room with sofa bed makes it ideal for couples but comfortable for an extra guest.
All year.


The gite is part of a 17th century nunnery lovingly and sensitively restored by Helen and Chris over the last two years. Comfortable and stylish, with high quality furnishings and equipment. Extra little touches like luxury toiletries, Egyptian cotton bedding, candles and fresh flowers make guests feel welcome and cosseted.

Perfect for a romantic holiday for two, the comfortable sitting room with sofa bed means that there is room for an extra guest.

A welcome pack makes it easy for those arriving in the evening so that you can have an evening snack of bread, cheese, paté , wine and home grown plum gin for a nightcap. Milk, orange juice, croissants, home made jams, yogurt and fresh fruits are provided for breakfast so that you don't have to rush out to the shops on arrival.

Fresh coffee beans and a selection of teas, plus a coffee grinder, milk frother, music system, satellite tv and DVD player all add to the high spec of this gite.

The cupboards are well stocked with condiments including herb infused oils from the garden, locally sourced chutneys and delicacies. Also locally bought pottery and art give you a feel for what is available in the village.

We are within 5 minute walking distance of the village, with its many bars and restaurants, and arts and craft shops, and the famous all year market. Which means that a car isn't actually necessary. For those who want to truly relax, throw the car keys in the drawer and walk or cycle on the many routes around St Antonin. Walking and cycling maps and routes are provided. As are walking sticks and ladies and gents bikes.

A shopping service can also be provided so that your time can be spent on holiday instead of food shopping!

An excellent outside space with comfortable garden furniture and BBQ is available for alfresco dining.

The gite is attached to a large house where Helen and Chris live. They spend their time between St Antonin and the UK. When they're in St Antonin they love to invite guests to join them for the occasional apero or dinner, but if they're in the UK, Caroline manages the property and takes care of guests.

St Antonin is a 13th century medieval village steeped in history. A delight to wander through the winding alleyways and discover the architect, the beautiful arches and doorways, the small stone faces on buildings around the town, then sit and have a coffee or beer at one of the bars and people watch!

For those with a car St Antonin is surrounded by many bastide medieval towns and villages, such as Albi, Cord Sur Ciel, Saint Cirq Lapopie, Bruniquel to name but a few. Information is available in the gite and from the local tourist office.

For more energetic types there is the beautiful gorge to walk through or climb up! Kayaks and bikes can be hired from several spots along the river.
A heated open air swimming pool with fantastic views of the gorge and tennis courts are a 5 minute walk from the gite. Tennis rackets are provided.
Paragliding and rock climbing is available for the daring! The Averyon river is clean enough to swim in and just below the gite is a pretty island in the middle of the river which is easy to wade out to and has a beach shaded by trees, perfect for a hot sunny afternoon.

Then how perfect to come home to a cozy gite and sit and watch the sun go down over a chilled glass of wine.

The lack of light pollution makes it perfect for star gazing. Amazing skies and shooting stars! If you're interested in astronomy, stargazing with Chris and his Celestron telescope is available by prior arrangement.

We hope you love our home as much as we do and look forward to meeting you!

Une très belle demeure où rien ne manque et où tout est à proximité : piscine, épicerie, boulangerie et bien sûr les gorges de l'Aveyron. Une très belle adresse et des hôtes adorables (malgré nos heures de départ et d'arrivée mouvantes à cause d'un bébé en bas âge). Merci encore pour tout et à très vite peut être !

Of all the years we have travelled to France, this was the best accommodation we have experienced, everything was provided, the property was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack, very welcome after our long journey. Helen is a lovely person and we look forward to returning.

The best Airbnb experience yet! This place is the hight of sophisticated luxury, exceptionally comfortable, huge open spaces, and with a view to die for. Helen and her husband have out done themselves and with great attention to detail. Amazing bathrooms, communal areas, and bedrooms. The location is also top notch. A few blocks away from the center of the village, but with a setting that makes you feel like you are deep in the country. Will be back for sure!

We didn't want to leave! Helen and Chris' gite is beautifully furnished and equipped. Thought and care has gone into each and every item, from the local pottery to the delicious smelling candles and fresh flowers throughout the rooms. The views are spectacular, and the gite is just moments from the centre of the wonderful village. We couldn't have asked for more, and Helen and Chris' hospitality was exceptional. We can't wait to return!

Luxurious accomodate on the edge of Saint Antonin Noble Val. Walking distance to the centre of this beautiful medieval town. Great views of the Aveyron gorge. Highly recommended

As soon as we arrived we felt welcome. The gite is wonderful. They absolutely did not lie about the great view. The quality of the gite was beyond expectations. They even had a complete breakfast/lunch in the fridge for after a long day of driving. To say it in one word, amazing! Thank you Chrid and Helen, for your participation in a great memory of France. We will be back :D

We're a "young" couple in our early sixties. We have five adult children between us and two grandchildren. We love to travel and do a big trip every winter. We split our time between St Antonin and a village outside Bristol in North Somerset.
We love spending time with family and friends, with whom we enjoy great food, lots of wine (not always French!)and fun and laughter
