Comfortable rustic farmhouse sleeping up to 20 with a games room, for relaxed holidays with friends in south west France

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Os Figueiros, Montirat, Tarn, South West France, sleeps 14-20 in 8 bedrooms.

Os Figueiros is a lovingly restored bastide farmhouse located in the tiny hamlet of Canezac in the Midi Pyrenees region of south west France, about 70 miles from Toulouse.

Step out of your room onto the rose and vine strewn balcony and you gaze down on the ancient courtyard with its tables, chairs and deckchairs for lounging around, relaxing and eating outside. Or you can picnic or eat out in the grounds, lie in the hammocks in the orchard, pick fruit in season - if you're lucky the figs might be ripe - or play games and sit around in the garden.

There are 8 individual bedrooms, plus the dovecote, for sleeping and many different places where you can sit and relax dotted around the gardens, courtyard and balcony. Our rooms are furnished in a country style with wooden floors, antique furniture, cozy beds and full bookshelves.

There are 2 large, well equipped kitchens: the one downstairs next to the courtyard also has a dining area for 20+ people and a sitting area for 10+ people. And upstairs there is a separate very large sitting room with settees and armchairs and musical instruments and art materials you can use.

Coming here can be a bit like a journey back in time to a quieter and simpler life. In the beautiful vaulted barn you can relax as you want, play games, have a party, perhaps meditate or practise yoga, (abundant mats and head rests) and from there you can look out into the gardens and the dovecote, or take a stroll in the meadow or the vegetable patch.

If you are looking for a house with all mod cons and very smart with lots of distractions then this is perhaps not the place for you. But if you want to relax, enjoy being close to nature and appreciate the lure of ancient buildings and a simple life then you will feel very at home here.

And surrounding you are hills and valleys where you can wander and meet few tourists; its a paradise for walkers and nature lovers. Swim in the nearby river with its spectacular views of the hills and villages around. Explore some of the nearby medieval towns and villages and their market days and in the evening visit a restaurant or village fete or listen to musicians perform.
