in Rodez town centre in the French department of Aveyron
Rodez, AVEYRON midi-pyrenees 12000 FR

Location

This house, in a narrow street in one of the town’s oldest districts, stands in the centre of Rodez, just a few minutes’ walk from the shops in the old town, 15 minutes from the airport (daily flights to Paris) and just 5 minutes from the train station.
The landscapes of the Aveyron department, from Aubrac plateau to the pastoral land of the Larzac area, are unusual and embellished with vast, protected open spaces.
The region includes ten villages, each classified as one of the “most beautiful villages of France”.

Description

In a peaceful district, this vast house, flanked by a tower, stands in the middle of an immaculately kept, wooded garden, reached via a wicket gate. Its 19th century style, rendered facade contrasts with its roof, covered with Cayrol slate, fish-scale tiles. This family home spans three full levels. In a wing set at right angles is a workshop, with a terrace, and its outbuilding. On the south side, a path slopes gently down through fruit trees to a swimming pool.
