Peace, privacy and acres of natural space.

The Midsummer Retreat certainly lives up to its name, set in a private space in a peaceful valley deep in South West France's Aveyron region.

Exclusively yours, the Midsummer Retreat is for your sole enjoyment, no sharing with anyone but the wildlife which surrounds you. The Yurt which is finished to the finest detail, is set into the hillside, in the grounds of an old French farmhouse. Surrounded by trees, birds and flowers.

The Yurt has wooden floors, antique tribal rugs and an eclectic style decor.  The large double bed has its own removable panel above the centre of the yurt, allowing you to lie back in bed and watch the stars. There is a sofa/daybed which also doubles up as 2 single beds for children. All bedding, towels and soaps are provided. The Yurt sleeps up to 4 people, so ideal for a family to unwind in.

The self-contained bathroom space has a large hot-water shower, a handbasin and flushing toilet. It also features recycled 16th century terracotta floor tiles found in an ancient forge along the river Aveyron gorge.

The Summer Kitchen is a hand crafted wooden structure, crafted using Ash, Oak and Hazel from the sites own woodland. This space is furnished with French vintage finds and provides 26m2 of cooking, dining and lounging open-fronted space. There are also charging points for your electrical goods.

The kitchen area is equipped with a gas cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, electric hand mixer, a mix of pots and pans and utensils. The table and chairs allow for al fresco dining, whilst the drop down canvas sides of the Summer Kitchen can be completely opened, allowing you to be at one with the surroundings as much as possible.

The lounge area is within the wooden cabin, making for a welcome escape from the summer heat.

The river is only a 10 minute drive away at St Antonin, where you can enjoy swimming or a river side picnic.  If you prefer a less wild swim, the outdoor pool there provides dramatic views of the Gorges de l'Aveyron.

St Antonin has a thriving local market on Sunday mornings where you can buy wine, freshly baked bread, local produce such as olives, cheeses etc... there are also a number of restaurants and cafes with wifi, a bank, laundrette, supermarket, a post office, a cinema and bike and canoe hire.

Walk in the surrounding valleys, whilst buzzards swoop and cicadas sing or explore the surrounding villages and the local cafes.  Enjoy relaxing on site, where you can collect eggs from the free range hens or pick organic herbs from the garden, or just sit back on your terrace and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this hidden escape.
