The
Experience

Vibrant Kim will meet you in St Antonin, the nearest village, then get you settled in. She also leaves you a welcome hamper with wine and all the basics in the cupboards. If you know you’re going to be arriving late and you’d like her to make sure there is something for dinner waiting for you, just ask. Cook indoors with all the kit you need or use the outdoor kitchen by the pool where you’ll also find a barbecue and grill.

It’s a gorgeous place to do nothing more than sunbathing, reading or snoozing by the pool. But there’s much sporty fun to be had too without getting in the car – wild swimming, rock climbing, hiking and biking, so pack up a picnic and head out. Walk into town in five minutes for shops, restaurants and a lively market.

In spite of the other houses dotted about nearby you’ll feel very private, and teenagers can cut themselves off in one of the downstairs bedrooms – it’s a perfect house for different generations holidaying together. You won’t find many tourists either so driving around to see things will be a pleasure.

Location

The neighbourhood

The countryside around the house is stunning and there are many walking trails, including one into town - head in on Sunday for the picturesque market. By car you can visit gorgeous medieval towns for markets and chateaux, including Bruniquel (15 minutes) which also has a music festival. Penne (15 minutes) is also a beautiful village with a château hanging over a rock and Cordes-sur-Ciel is one of the loveliest villages in France (30 minutes). Further afield, Villefranche, Albi and Toulouse are well worth discovering.

Introducing

Kim Ilsley

Warm and welcoming Kim is an artist, trial runner, Pilates teacher (ask her if you’d like lessons) and keen upcycler. She and her partner Andy, a environmental consultant and archaeologist, bought the property 15 years ago and have become very much a part of the community, with their children at the local school. She can arrange all sorts of extras, from airport pickups and picnic hampers to art or cookery lessons – just ask.
