WHERE WE ARE 

The Old Tobacco Barn is in the heart of the  Occitanie region, a beautiful part of Southern France with an exceptional heritage.  Of course you may choose to stay by the pool, though there is plenty to see, explore and do. The property is situated on the Tarn, Tarn et Garonne and Aveyron border, which boasts the most 'plus Beaux Villlages' in France. It is also in the middle of Bastide country with its walled towns and castles and close to the vineyards of Gaillac and Cahors.

Climate

We have hot summers and short, crisp winters, making this an ideal area for both high season and  an out of season break.
