Now the home has been lovingly renovated, retaining some beautiful features of the past like the old brick cave ceilings in the hall ways and the large old flagstone steps. In one of the bedrooms there still are some parts of old wall paintings.
The property is situated between the two small towns of Cazes Mondenard, with a boulangerie, chemist and tennis courts and the pretty town of Castelnau Montratier, which has small local shops, some cafes/restaurants and a weekly market.For those looking for sightseeing and places of interest the property is within easy reach of the medieval towns of Lauzerte, one of the Bastile villages, Moissac, situated on the river Tarn and Montauban, the departments principal town , where you can discover ancient ruins to 20th-century architecture.
The accommodation is now equipped with all the modern comforts. The large kitchen/dining has an original fireplace and large table. The kitchen area is well equipped with a Falcon range cooker, gas top and an electric oven. There is a dishwasher, fridge, coffee machine, microwave and pantry.

We had an amazing time in Tissac and would definitely look at returning again one day, maybe even next year! The house was even better than we expected, which makes a pleasant change. Mrs L.H, Mulhull.
