About the neighbourhood
We are located on a hilltop not far from St Antonin and the Aveyron gorge. The five acres of grass and gardens overlook farmland and have spectacular views of the cliffs of the gorge. There are many activities available at Blancou. The private swimming pool has a hilltop location with fabulous views and is exclusively for the use of guests. There is badminton, table tennis and boules. For those preferring a quieter time, chill out under the shade of the walnut tree on one of the sunbeds or choose from a selection of books available in the farmhouse. Five minutes drive away is the historic town of St Antonin Noble Val with further activities and a range of bars and restaurants.
