THE VILLAGE AND ITS REGION
SAINT-ANTONIN-NOBLE-VAL is located 100km from Toulouse in the Tarn-et-Garonne, at the junction of three beautiful regions: Quercy, Rouergue and Albigeois.
The village is dominated by the towering Roc d'Anglars at the entrance to the 'Gorges de l'Aveyron'
10 years before the cameras sent by Spielberg, Saint Antonin had already been noticed since it had provided the framework for many scenes in the Australian film 'Charlotte Gray' with Cate Blanchett in 2003.
The medieval city (with its masterpiece La Maison Romane, the oldest civic building in France) is pleasantly surrounded by the cities of Cahors (60 km), Villefranche de Rouergue (45km), Albi (50 km), Montauban (40 km) and Gaillac (35 km).
The old medieval town is busy during the summer.
The hikers who roam the marked paths that traverse the wild plateau come across climbers who conquer the steep cliffs of the Gorges, kayakers descending the river Aveyron, cyclists and mountain bikers in search of fresh water and enthusiasts of Romanesque architecture, who marvel at the corner of every street.
You will find most food shops on site ( 2 bakeries, a grocery shop with quality local produce and two medium sized supermarkets) but also many artisan shops, cafes, restaurants ( in all price ranges) and taverns at the water's edge.
A big famous local produce market settles every Sunday morning in the streets of the old city and attracts the entire region
All shopping can be done in the village on foot, and the car is never necessary when one is on site.
The village is located in a protected natural area (Gorges de l'Aveyron), close to
the medieval sites of Cordes-sur-Ciel (voted 'Favourite town of the French' in 2014), Penne, Bruniquel (place of filming of 'The Old Gun'), Najac, Castelnau de Montmirail ...
municipal swimming pool
Swimming and canoeing in the Aveyron
Many marked hiking paths
Bicycle rides and mountain biking (marked routes)
Climbing in the Gorges of the Aveyron
Tennis, paragliding, caving ....
Many historical sites within 50km.
