À propos de ce logement
Os Figueiros is the perfect place for a relaxed and rustic gathering. Cosy beds, home grown produce, hammocks a plenty, incredible star-gazing and a river for swimming nearby. Everything you need to enjoy the good life!
Os Figueiros is a lovingly restored bastide farmhouse located in the tiny hamlet of Canezac, in the midi-pyrenees region of South West France. On arrival in our courtyard you are immediately transported into a beautiful, rustic world, far away from modern life.
Our rooms are furnished in a country-style with wooden floors, antique furniture, cosy beds and full bookshelves. Step out of your room on to the rose and vine-strewn balcony and look out over our ancient courtyard where you can feast on local and homegrown produce around our farmhouse table, or take a picnic into the gardens. Afterwards have a swing in a hammock under the fig trees.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We will always be on hand if you need us, with at least one of us usually staying on site, either in the dovecote or another out-house. We are very happy to help in planning trips and outtings and to give advice on the local area and the best restaurants and cafes around. If however you want to be left to your own devices that is also fine. It's up to you!
A walker’s paradise, you can access Le Grand Rondonee (the French network of footpaths) just a 15 minute walk from our door, and we are moments from forests, fields and valleys where you can roam free in nature. We are close to the river, with beautiful swimming spots and its grassy banks for cooling off (if you’re feeling daring take one of our canoes down with you.) You’ll find many attractive villages and towns nearby with traditional markets, restaurants and cafes. The nearest big town to us is Albi; a world heritage site and home to the Toulouse Lautrec museum and the ancient cathedral. We are very happy to help with planning walks, outings and where to eat out when you visit.

I love being in nature, gardening, building and restoring where i live . In the spring and summer i enjoy swimming in the nearby river, working outside, lazing around and relaxing in my courtyard with friends under the stars. I am very easy going and open to new experiences and people and try not to take myself too seriously. I am interested in alternative lifestyles and ways of being, have had lots of adventures and worked as a cranial osteopath for 25 years..
