The property was easy to find and in an idyllic location. Just the two of us so plenty of space but would be fine for a family too. Chantelle and Colin could not have been more welcoming and were more than happy to provide local information to add to the literature already in Le Rudel. Ideal position for a bit of sightseeing , Carcassonne and Albi an hour or so away and if not wanting to travel the options of laying in the garden or swimming in the lovely pool. Would very much recommend.
So that my family and friends (17 of us) could stay and help celebrate my 70th birthday, we booked all three of Janine and Steve’s stunning gites. We are very grateful for their help in organising three days of celebration and fun. Friday evening started with an “Apero” hosted by Steve and Janine. Everybody enjoyed lots of delicious canapes and snacks and sampled the local wine and beer. All al fresco, overlooking one of the three beautiful valleys which surround their property.
On the Saturday, Steve and Janine arranged for tables and chairs to be set up under a gazebo outside the old barn and for local company, La Cuisine des Anges, to serve us a wonderful and memorable meal. The meal, which took all afternoon to eat, included separate courses of canapes, mussels, crevettes, duck liver salad, Coq au vin, French cheese and apple tart with vanilla ice cream. The meal was complemented with local sparkling rose wine and beer. We give huge thanks to chef Leo and his team for the impeccable and friendly service.
Sunday was games and competition day! Everyone enjoyed table football, outdoor Jenga and Connect Four before splitting into two teams for a series of "Nerf wars". Afterwards we felt we had earned a barbecue on the terrace of The Farm, overlooking the pool and another beautiful valley. Steve and Janine came up trumps supplying extra barbecues and utensils to cater for our large group.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and I would recommend Puycalvel for anyone contemplating a special family occasion.
