Louise couldn’t be kinder and there’s a mellow, bohemian feel to her former convent home. She’s carefully mixed finds from her global travels with antiques, brocante and modern pieces and the result is charming. Peaceful, comfortable bedrooms have practical showers and lovely valley views over the pretty village.
Breakfast on fresh bread, croissants and patisserie under the pergola, in the nooked and crannied garden, or in the sunny salon. And do arrange to have homemade dinner too. Wander down for a dip in the river, the dogs may come with you; visit Lautrec’s magical Château du Bosc, Albi and Cordes; relax – to birdsong or to the crackling logs of a winter fire. You’ll find a wall of books to dip into too.
Wine and cheese pairing evenings can be arranged and there are musical soirees during August. This is a very cultured place to stay.
