Fabulous relaxing week
We were not disappointed when we arrived, we were met and shown around by the hosts. The house is beautiful, filled with all sorts of amazing things. The bedrooms are all decorated beautifully, with comfy beds and plenty of room. The bathrooms are well appointed and clean. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and enough crockery for an army!
The gardens are huge and full of beautiful plants, with many areas to sit and while away an afternoon in the sunshine. There is a BBQ to use as well as a table tennis table which the children loved.
The pool is fabulous, the temperature was 26-27 degrees, again plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the sun.
All in all, a beautiful house, fab gardens, wonderful hosts who were able to help us with any questions we had and a super pool. We had a wonderful relaxing week in this great home.
Thank you Marylene and Pierre for a great stay.
Thank you very much for this beautiful appreciation.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we were very happy to meet you. Hoping that these memories will accompany you as long as possible.

An absolutely fabulous stay in beautiful, peaceful surroundings
It's very difficult to get a true idea of this property without seeing it with your own eyes but it is, in a word, 'Magnifique'. The house is wonderful with a great kitchen, large dining room (although we ate all our meals outside), music room and lots of bedrooms. The walls are covered in works of art and lined with book cases giving the whole place a sort of bohemian feel. The grounds themselves, however, are simply breathtaking. They are vast and provided our 3 children no end of opportunities to explore. The whole place is very secure with walls and hedges going right the way round to the remote controlled double gates at the bottom of the drive and unbelievably peaceful - just being able to lounge about outside on one of the myriad sofas/outdoor beds with a good book whilst knowing that the children are around having a fabulous time playing and investigating and not having to worry about them escaping or getting injured on anything was blissful!
I counted 4 outside dining areas but there could well be more and we wasted no time in enjoying our first evening meal outside in the gentle warm evening breeze under one of the large trees perfectly lit with outdoor lights and sipping one of the complimentary bottles of Bordeaux the owners very kindly left for us.
The outdoor pool was a very welcome addition and the children loved it - in the pump room the owners have a collection of inflatables (and a pump!) for the pool which gave us all hours (actually, days) of fun whether we wanted to jump in and splash or just lie on one of loungers around the perimeter of the pool and sunbathe. There's also a swing and a couple of other rope 'toys' hanging from one of the larger trees in the property and these, also, were well used during our stay.
We found some lovely places to visit nearby: the nearest town of Lavaur a few miles away and slightly further afield (about 30 mins) the very picturesque Albi and even a walk to the local bakery for our morning croissants - there was plenty to do but with everything this property had to offer, we were loathed to do much more than that!
We only stayed a week here but both my wife and I wished it could have been for much longer and found that we couldn't stop just looking around us and remarking on the beauty and tranquility of the place.
A beautiful elegant house and gardens -perfect for tranquility and relaxation
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.
Excellent séjour entre amis !
Grâce à cette magnifique maison, son emplacement, son superbe jardin et la piscine, nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances.
L'accueil est très agréable et sympathique. Mylene et son mari sont toujours présents pour répondre aux questions éventuelles.
C'est une très belle destination de vacances au calme et au soleil.
Merci Mylene et peut-être à bientôt.
Cette ravissante maison a accueilli toute la famille durant deux semaines et tout le monde s'y est senti très bien..Un grand jardin et une multitude de petits recoins pour ceux qui veulent la paix, à l'ombre ou au soleil ! Fruits cueillis directement dans le verger! Maison fraîche (malgré la canicule), spacieuse et conviviale. Equipement au top pour les cuisiniers en herbe..Quant au coin piscine: simplement magnifique avec son petit air de Toscane qui nous a fait voyager (sans les inconvénients du genre grève air france en plein mois d'août). Accueil charmant et décontracté. Endroit idéal pour se ressourcer: lire, dessiner, cuisiner, nager ou simplement... rêver.
Un grand merci à Pierre et Marylène.
