Lovely walks along the (pedestrian only) Roman road that runs close by through the countryside.

Throughout the summer there are many festivals, free concerts and fairs in the whole region.

There is much to do on all levels. The area has many biking and walking trails, including a 30 km roman road near the house. There are many sports centres in the various mountains for canoeing, kayaking and so forth. Quad biking is also popular.

There are many more interesting cultural towns such as Castres, Albi, Carcassonne and Cordes to name a few.

Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

We really really loved our stay at the hilltop farmhouse 81003. Tt couldn’t have been more perfect. The view from the farmhouse was the best and most beautiful view in the Tarn. The house was much more lovely than the fotos. It was spotless and so well stocked. The owner’s taste was fantastic and she had thought of everything. The pool and outside area were gorgeous and the stone table outside was perfect for all our dinners. There was so much to see, too, in the surrounding areas It really was better than perfect and we hope to return.

Thank you also for your help. I would be more than happy to work with you again.

Hi Stephanie, I am sending greetings from the most stunningly beautiful farmhouse and area ever! We couldn't be happier and me more relaxed! We are in awe of your home and all the wonderful details. You can feel the love! Thank you so much. We are loving every minute. Everything is perfect. My very best, priscilla

I just wanted to send a note of thanks once again. As we and our best friends were celebrating on New Year's Eve, we all looked back on our time at Hilltop farmhouse as not only the highlight of our year, but also the highlight of the 15+ year friendship between our two families. The time we spent simply taking in the beauty of your home and the landscape of the property was the most rejuvenating and centering of our lives. By bringing Hilltop farmhouse back to life and sharing it with families like ours, you have made a positive difference in the world. Thank you, and may 2016 be your best year yet.

I just wanted to say that as a family we truly enjoyed our holiday at Hilltop Farmhouse
It was a wonderful week and my husband and I have many many happy memories which were made possible by the house, the setting, the décor, the space, the wildlife and the homely feel you have created. It was a real privilege to be able to stay there for a week.
As we have converted a barn in Hampshire, the photos you have on display bought back memories of our self build. We especially liked the fact you kept true to the original building.
We will certainly recommend Hilltop Farmhouse to our friends and are considering booking another week next year in May.

Have arrived at your beautiful place. A fantastic place and we have stayed in some nice ones over the years. This surpasses most of them by a wide margin !!

A short note to thank you for a most wonderful time at your beautiful house in France. As a family we had a wonderful time and my two young children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The varied wildlife kept my 21month daughter Robyn busy throughout our stay. We hope to return next year!

Hall Family




We are having a wonderful time. Your house is a complete dream! It is even more beautiful than we imagined! Thank you for the opportunity to experience it. We are now wishing we hadn't made other commitments and that we could stay here for the whole of our Europe trip.

Adrian & Michelle




Your home is wonderful. All the rooms in the house are beautiful, and the setting is spectacular. Our favorite activity was hanging out on one of the several terraces with a glass of local wine listening to the wind in the trees, the birds, and occasionally, the cows and the rooster down the hill. Also, being able to pick ripe figs and apples for breakfast was an unexpected bonus. We also enjoyed a fantastic meal at Les Marrioners – not only was the food great, but the people running the restaurant were so very nice. Thank you for sharing your home – we will definitely return (hopefully with better French skills).

Patricia Albrecht and Matt Davis




On behalf of all of us, I am writing to let you know how much your beautiful property has exceeded our expectations. We have enjoyed a lovely evening watching the sun fade away and the moon grow brighter, enjoying the great wine you left for us -- thank you! We're so glad we followed your recommendation and stopped in Lavaur for groceries because it means we will have no reason to leave here to tomorrow - we simply don't want to be anywhere else.

M Zindren




We arrived safe and well in Bruges after a smooth 10 hour drive in glorious sunshine.
We would like to say once more that we enjoyed the beautiful house, the space and nice decor, not to forget the pool, the garden and the magnificent view. It was a very relaxing holiday. Thank you so much!
