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.

Superb get away in the south of France

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in the south of France and thoroughly enjoyed it with our two young boys. The house has exquisite views, is well appointed and a lovely, private pool with ping pong table too.

I would recommend the lake/ reservoir at St Ferrieol near Revel for water sports and fun, Saturday market at Revel, Wednesday,s food market at Puy Lauren, a trip to/ through Le Sidobre and for a greater choice of food shopping the Casino supermarket in Revel. Intermarche at Puy Laurens is sufficient.

Aymon the owner is very welcoming, discrete and happy to recommend days out etc.

We had a great stay !

Tout bien....

Super mas, localisation et vues superbes !

  • 5 of 5

Acceuil chaleureux par des propriétaires qui respectent au maximum le privé de leurs hôtes. Fleurs fraîches dans chaque chambre. Boissons au frigo et bouteille de vin. Domaine vert et fleuri grâce aux efforts d'arrosage du propriétaire. Piscine et terrasse 100% privée avec des endroits dans l'ombre. Maison très propre, confortable, et frais, même pas eu besoin de l'airco. Très pratique que tout le linge de maison est inclus. Le bois et son sentier sont inspirant pour les enfants.

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.
