Originally built in 1880 the house was used as a barn until 100 years later when a modern house was built inside the old walls. It therefore has the character of the old stone and beams but the comfort of a modern house.
This immaculate house is situated close to the centre of the historic hilltop village of Puylagarde - a well run friendly community of some 500 people with a boulangerie and general store. It is the highest village in Tarn et Garonne and was a fortified chateau in the Hundred Years War. The Chateau still exists and the Rue des Anglais is so called because English soldiers were billeted there over 500 years ago.The wonderful market towns of St Antonin Noble Val and Villefranche de Rouergue both on the River Aveyron are 20 minutes drive away. Toulouse airport is 75 mins away via the A20 autoroute. Railway stations are situated at nearby Caussade and Villefranche de Rouergue.
