Thank you to Marylene and Pierre for being such hospitable and thoughtful hosts. The house is amazing with beautifully decorated rooms and a kitchen that has every possible culinary requirement. We loved the garden which is arranged for finding peace/solitude or for gathering as a group under the trees for meals (where we mostly ate). My husband found many great opportunities for drawing around the garden and we enjoyed the wonderful produce that Serge, the gardener provided. The pool is perfectly situated and very well supplied for both water activities and lounging in the sun. The area offers a very high quality restaurant (Chez John) within walking distance which is run by an English Chef and there are many historic and interesting towns to visit in the area (Albi, Gaillac). Everyone met here was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend staying here.
Having holidayed in France over more than 25 years, we’d rate this as one of the best gites we’ve ever stayed in. This beautiful conversion of an old pigeon house provides clean, stylish and comfortable rooms and the owners have tried to think of everything to make one’s stay more pleasant and convenient. We especially liked the plancha (gas griddle) – a new experience for us and now we want one too! The pool is also excellent – at the end of the garden, with its own terrace and toilet and with pathway lighting for those evening dips.
Isabelle, Richard and family are very welcoming, helpful without being intrusive and have excellent English, though will speak French if you prefer. Having usually chosen properties that were completely independent, this experience of having the owners nearby has converted us.
There is lots to do in the area for a wide range of ages and interests. A good restaurant is within walking distance in the village, as are a boulangerie (unfortunately closed during our stay) and the “petit train touristique” – worth an enjoyable, short trip to lovely nearby gardens.
Overlooking fields with glorious sunsets makes for a peaceful and perfect setting. Definitely - and exceptionally - somewhere we look forward to returning to.
