Our house, more than 175 years old, has been built in the typical "pierres blanches" (white limestone) from the region. Originally an old farm with vineyards, sheep and goats, whose traces are still visible until today, it has been sympathetically restored and renovated - keeping the authentic charm and style. The house is surrounded by a garden of nearly 4.5 hectares features boxwood, old oaks and pastures for the horses.
La Boissière is quietly situated just outside the village of Andillac, with the typical "pigeonnier" or dovecote as there are several in this region. On walking distance through the surrounding vine yards you can visit the museum “Château Musée du Cayla”, birthplace of the writers Maurice and Eugénie de Guérin, and where several exhibitions and cultural events are organized.
This location in the "triangle d'or" (golden triangle) between Albi (Episcopal city classified under the UNESCO World Heritage), Cordes sur Ciel (preferred village of the French in 2014) and Gaillac (one of the oldest wine regions of France), offers you the opportunity to discover "le pays des vignobles et bastides". The numerous small medieval villages as Puycelsi, Castelnau de Montmiral, St.Antonin Noble Val, etc., provide unforgettable views over the beautiful hills. Nature lovers, hikers, cyclists
motorcyclists, and of course horse riders can find more than enough to enjoy along the various routes and paths!
For those who prefer to relax, we have at any time of the day our pool of 6m by 12m and jacuzzi available. On the spacious equipped terrace surrounding the pool you can chill in one of the lounge chairs or read a book, perhaps accompanied by a delicious cup of tea or a fresh juice.
Nothing can disturb your peace except the singing of the birds or the neighing of a horse in the distant valley .....
