A home away from home, perfectly charming

  • 5 of 5

This was just the most perfect holiday we have had in a while. We felt at home from the start. The owner went to great pains to make sure we knew our way around the property and its amenities, sharing things to do and making us feel relaxed. The property is pretty, bright,clean,well-maintained and equipped and the wifi is reasonable. The planchette was great for (man) cooking on the patio. The pool is extremely clean and maintained and although it is shared with the owner, we always were alone. Table tennis is available with a few pool inflatables. A welcome bottle of lovely Gaillac wine, juice and flowers, with aperitifs to finish our holiday in the chateau with the owner and his wife, all contributed to our wonderful stay.

The location, on a hill,has a view to die for! The property is a mixture of old stone and modernity, with all the mod cons. Although it is a little isolated (with plenty of hills around) it is about 15 minutes by car to Puy Laurens, where there are all the local small shops you need plus a couple of reasonable supermarkets.

It is a perfect location for exploring the Pays de Cocagne. Our favourites were Cordes Sur Ciel, Toulouse, Castres and Albi and there are so many small villages including Lautrec, which capture the spirit of the area. Do visit the Chateau of Magrin, which houses the (small) pastel museum, a truly fascinating experience. It throws much light on this area's history and development.

We enjoyed cycling on the voie vertes, our favourites being from Revel, Mazamet and Saint Sulpice.

The selection of restaurants is limited, partly because of the August holidays. L'Etoile, nearby in Puy Laurens, although not much to look at, served lovely food in the evening. We would also recommend Pub St Martin in Soreze and Cafe du Lac, near Revel.

We would love to revisit this area and to return to Mas Du Tour. Highly recommended.

SUPER !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous revenons de ce séjour dans le Tarn enchantés. Les photos ne nous ont pas menti, bien au contraire, le gîte est super fonctionnel, propre avec du matériel de qualité. Le propriétaire était à l'écoute de nos demandes et de très bon conseils. Je suis certaine de revenir dans ce gîte tellement nous avons adoré cette vue superbe depuis la cuisine, la belle piscine. Que du Bonheur.

Un gîte de rêve au coeur du "pays de cocagne"

  • 5 of 5

Ce gîte est tout simplement merveilleux. Parfaitement équipé, vue splendide, confortable et intime, blotti dans un nid de verdure au coeur du "pays de cocagne". Parfait pour les amateurs de tranquillité, de nature et de randonnées. Sans oublier la magnifique piscine totalement privative. Les propriétaires sont toujours disponibles, prêts à vous guider dans le découverte de leur pays qu'ils adorent.

À hanter au moins une fois dans sa vie !

  • 5 of 5

À lire tant d'éloges, nous avions une petite crainte d'être déçus. ..or, dès que nous avons quitté l'asphalte et emprunté l'allée traversant le petit bois du domaine, nous savions que notre séjour allait être de rêve. Le mas est planté dans un petit écrin d'ombres et de soleil, le panorama est superbe et aussi accueillant que nos hôtes. L'interieur est cossu, parfaitement équipé, confortable et chaleureux. Aidés par monsieur et madame Playe, nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis chez nous.

Deux semaines de visites (embarras du choix ), de randonnées, de bien boire et manger (ne pas manquer le marché de Revel), de repos, de piscine. ..le tout avec les conseils et aides discrètes des propriétaires.

Vous comprendrez pourquoi il faut s'y prendre très tôt pour se réserver une petite place au soleil!
