Mas de Martel - Parisot

Our little stone cottage is set in half an acre of wooded hillside a kilometre away from the small village of Parisot in Tarn et Garonne, just over the border from Aveyron. We have two neighbours in our hamlet. The setting is beautifully quiet and secluded.
The cottage is tiny ( ground floor original size 20 sq. metres, now 38 sq. metres) -but is very comfortable, modern and warm. We have extended the original cottage and totally renovated throughout.
Downstairs: under-heated limestone tiles in the living room and kitchen, a wood burner; toilet/shower; tv with UK and European channels; good WiFi
Upstairs: small double bedroom in the eaves with 2 velux windows ( double bed); storage area with round window and 2 velux windows.
Outside; beautiful hilltop garden with dry stone walling, luxurious wooden cabin used as jazz shack and extra bedroom, 2 sheds, a yoga deck down the hillside, a yurt ( we take this down over the winter months). Many beautiful mature oak trees.

About the location

Beautiful, green, empty. Mixed farmland. High rocky hillsides and river gorges, deep wooded valleys. Medieval towns ( Parisot is C13). Lots of wildlife; deer, wild boar, red squirrels, pine martens, buzzards, woodpeckers, so many birds and flowers - more wild orchids in Tarn et Garonne than anywhere else in France.
Stunning little towns and markets, very quiet off season; a popular tourist destination in the summer.
