For a taste of the real France come to Duc. A recently restored 18th Century Manor House in the Aveyron Department of South West France. Set on a sunny hillside in twenty acres of parkland, this peaceful location has fabulous views over Old Aubin and Cransac Thermal Spa. You can also join us for dinner, go on a motorcycle tour or have a relaxing massage!
Restored after 4 years work to a high standard, using traditional materials and reinstating many original features Duc, called “Le Petit Chateau” by the locals, has 5 superb ensuite bedrooms, one that can be used as a family suite. It also boasts 5 cellars, including an impressive vaulted wine cellar complete with several huge wine vats, barrels (all empty unfortunately...) and an old cider press. The house is surrounded by it's own private grounds, complete with orchards, gardens, a well, a childrens play area and several terraces to enjoy the sun or shade whatever the time of day.
Aubin is an ideal base from which to explore the unspoilt Aveyron. Famous for the Millau Viaduct, the Aveyron also has ten of “The Most Beautiful Villages” in France including: Conques; Belcastel; Najac; Estaing; Sauveterre de Rouergue and La Couvertoirade. We are situated only half an hour from Rodez Airport (flights with Ryanair from Stansted). Aubin has a train station with daily trains from Paris. Collections can be arranged from the airport or train station.
There are several well stocked rivers and lakes within 15 minutes drive. The pristine public swimming pool is 2 minutes away and, for those walkers amongst you, we have miles of peaceful routes adjacent to us and are also fortunate to be situated close to the pilgrimage route of St Jacques de Compostella. Shops, bars and restaurants are less than a mile away.
The capital of the Aveyron, Rodez is 40 minutes drive. This beautiful city boasts a magnificent cathedral, an old town, complete with historic buildings and a plethora of pedestrianised parades (shops!).
We have an in-house Holistic Therapist who is qualified to practice Aromatherapy, Full Body Massages, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage. Relaxing weekend packages are available, or you can just sample a massage during your stay.
Motorcycle tours are also available – we have covered, secure parking for bikes.
The Aveyron and Lot departments are so chock full of things to see and do it's overwhelmingly beautiful. Come and see for yourself!
Prices per double room per night are €70 – including breakfast – all year. You can join us for dinner, €20 per adult and includes all drinks. We can provide packed lunches on request.
