Luxury self catering cottage in Aveyron France
La Lombardie is situated on the edge of the small village of Drulhe, near the bastide town of Villefranche de Rouergue in the Northern region of the Aveyron in Southwestern France.
This beautifully converted barn, within the grounds of the main house, has stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the distant mountains of the Causse Comtal.
With a private terrace overlooking the garden and sole use of the large swimming pool, it is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
For the more adventurous, there are many interesting places to visit and numerous outdoor activities to enjoy, within easy driving distance.
The Aveyron, with its' regional capital Rodez is considered to be one of the most 'secret' departments in France, cut off for years by its' physical geography. There are the mountains of the Aubrac to the North, the craggy Peuchs of Levezou in the centre and the Grand Causses of the South.
The area is also rich in history. Human habitation can be traced back to Neolithic times, with our local Grottes de Foissac, described as a veritable underground museum, well worth a visit. Roman conquerors, Saracen invaders and the Knights Templar have all left their marks on the region, including our own village.
At La Lombardie you will find every comfort for your perfect holiday.
