General Information

LOCATION

Wonderful location within the HISTORIC QUARTER of this medieval town : St. Antonin Noble Val, this beautifully restored 15th / 16th century town house has many of the impressive, original features retained.

Seconds away from the Palais Prevotal, (the oldest civil building in Europe), the house is snuggled away in one of the cobbled streets just off the main square.

Bars, restaurants, shops, small local boutiques just metres away. There is also a Bank / Post Office / 3 supermarkets of good size / chemist / garages with petrol pumps & a wonderful little cinema (often showing the latest films in English).

The Sunday morning market is a great attraction and people come from miles around to see the colourful stalls selling fruit, veg, breads, pates, cheeses, local cuisine ~ all right on your doorstep. There are also Summer Night markets held in the town, which are particularly appealing on a hot summers evening.

 

 

SPORTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The public OPEN AIR, HEATED swimming pool (June ~ mid/end Sept) is just 100m+ away, together with a great range of sporting activities in the town & nearby surrounding area.

Tennis, VTT hire, horse riding, mountain climbing, zip wire, etc., and of course kayaking down the Aveyron Gorge from St. Antonin Noble Val.

CLIENT COMMENTS

We were enchanted by this magnificent house, restored with so much taste. We loved the two terraces and the fabulous views ~
the location was calm, relaxing and perfect (being in the centre of the 'old town', next to all amenities). We definately hope to return!
