The property was originally a farmhouse,  first built in the 18th century. Since 2009 has been transformed into Gites.  They are set in 1.75 acres of land so plenty of room to relax in the garden.   On the south side there are views to the Montagne Noire behind which are the Pyrenees; to the westside are open views over the orchard towards Lautrec village.  So, if you like bird watching this is the place to stay. To the east is our vegetable field with more fruit trees!
