Our first gite is near Caylus in South West France; named the "Little Blue Moto", because one of the focal points is exactly that, a little blue funky moped. The gite combines high quality furnishings with locally sourced quirky items; industrial-style recyclables that will make you smile whenever they catch your eye.
Priced from £75 per night (minimum stay 2 nights), Little Blue Moto is just for couples. It's comfortably equipped with everything you could want. There’s an outdoor barbeque and firepit and a log-fired hot tub where you can relax under the stars while drinking a glass of bubbly. If you tire of the steam room, sauna or swimming pool, there’s a grand piano for you to use; a glitterball in the bedroom might even tempt you to dance the night away. French and english TV is available, with DVD player and films to watch. It's a fantasy place that's full of fun. Free wifi is also available.
Locally there are numerous walking trails; you can go canoeing, cycling, rock climbing or pay a leisurely visit to nearby museums, art galleries or vineyards. Toulouse and Albi - World Heritage sites - are within easy reach. But you might prefer to take art or cake making classes, have a massage or simply relax and enjoy the scenery. Anything is possible, I can tailor your stay to meet your needs - the sky's the limit. Just bring your toothbrush and Passport.Book Now »
The property lies amidst unspoilt countryside of oak woods and orchids, away from busy roads, and with walks, biking and horse-riding from the door. Miles and miles of country tracks lead off in all directions, without a car in sight. Situated 5 minutes from the busy medieval village of Caylus in the Tarn et Garonne, less than 1 hour from either Toulouse or Rodez airports, and 20 minutes to the Toulouse-Paris motorway.
Caylus has a wide variety of commerces, including high-class butchers, delicatessens, wine shop and restaurants, and within 20 minutes of the house are over 50 superb restaurants specialising in local and seasonal produce at reasonable prices. Described in travel magazines as "an undiscovered gem" and "an outdoor paradise", the region is known as the Quercy and within minutes of the house are opportunities for canoeing, caving and world-class climbing in the gorge of the Aveyron.Book Now »
