The
Experience

Bright, smiling Brigitte is proud of her lovely 17th-century domaine, in the family for 100 years. An imposing stone staircase leads to wonderful big bedrooms with original parquet and grand mirrors, period beds, subtle paint finishes and 19th-century papers, and quirky treasures discovered in the attic: sepia photographs, antique bonnets, vintage suitcases. Showers are top-range Italian and the old arched billiards room makes a perfect salon. It’s unusually, richly authentic, the breakfasts are locally sourced and delicious and you are eight miles from Albi, World Heritage Site. A huge treat.

Reviews

This French chambre d'hotes is absolutely charming, just like it's owner! It has been beautifully renovated in authentic shabby chic style, very authentic and tasteful but there are also all modern day comforts, grand bedrooms with good beds and linens, and top grade bathrooms. Madame has used lots of old letters, photos, and antique finds that were in the attic and these add charm to the decor. The breakfasts were fresh and we ate on the terrace overlooking the lawn, the pool area and the natural parkland, home to golden orioles singing in the morning. Thank you for a lovely welcome Mme.

Local points of interest from Brigitte Lesage

  • Albi, The Episcopal city World Heritage
  • Cathedral of Sainte Cécile : This powerful and monumental structure is the largest brick building in the world. A Southern gothic masterpiece
  • Palais de la Berbie : This imposing fortress was completed at the end of the thirteenth century and offers a glimpse of times and spiritual outlook of the Bishops of Albi.
  • Toulouse Lautrec Museum : The former Episcopal place, built in the thirteenth century, provides an unusual setting for the paintings of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, a native of Albi.
  • Cordes sur Ciel is one of Frances’s most important medieval towns and a valuable European heritage site.
  • There are many walled towns, or bastides, in the area offering delightful walks, such as Cordes, Réalmont, Castelnau de Montmiral, Puycelsi, and Lisle-sur-Tarn.
