The Experience

In its own little garden, the prettiest gîte. You step into a very delightful open-plan interior with wood-burning stove, cheerful red sofa, books and easy chairs. The galley kitchen has sun-yellow tiles, dishwasher, hob and oven. The bedroom is cosy and cool – white walls, antique pine, bed linen with towels to match, and shower room en suite. You get your lovely private terrace and garden, with barbecue, at the back and, off the courtyard, reached via an outside stair, an extra bedroom you can rent – ideal for grandparents, older children or anyone wanting independence. Monique is charming, bakes her own bread (which she’s happy to sell), keeps her own hens. There’s nothing she likes better than to prepare dinner for a big friendly crowd: enjoy table d’hôtes in the big, terraced garden. You’re high on a sunny hill (puech means ‘hilltop’ in the regional dialect, malou is a type of apple), in a garden lush with lavender, hibiscus and shady corners. Teillet for simple shops is a five-minute drive, Albi and Toulouse are under an hour.

We have spent one week in June in the cottage, where we enjoyed the beautiful cottage with its private garden and terrace. Harry and Monique really are great hosts; at the background but always full of attention for their guests. They provided us with lots of information on journeys in the beautiful surroundings. The cottage is worth a recommendation: comfortable and cool inside with an outside temperature of 35°. Hans and Jeroentje (the Netherlands)


It was an summer surprice. Such a lovely place, beautufull garden. So comfortable and good cares from Monique and Harry. Well documented about what to do, where to go, where to eat and drink. But also, the fine diners cooked by Monique. The diner by sunset with a sky coloured red purpel orange, a fairytale. The weather was warm, but the swimmingpool cool. Fun.

The last two weeks of September 2015 we spent at Maison Puech Malou. We had been there twice before. The weather was fantastic, the rooms, the hospitality felt like coming home, like all the previous times. Even so late in the year you could still swim. Everything was just great class and quality This is France as we have it all in our dreams. Thank you Monique and Harry !!! Loes & Frits, Amsterdam

  • In 2010, the UNESCO recognised the significant cultural importance of the Episcopal City of Albi by including it on the prestigious World Heritage List as a cultural heritage site. More than 800 000 tourists visit the city every year.
  • Albi a unique city of medieval brick. Medieval buildings:The Saint-Cecile Cathedral, the largest brick-built cathedral in the world, and the Berbie Palace, the home of the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum with the largest public collection of the artist’s work.
  • Cordes sur Ciel one of the most beautiful medieval villages of France, the pearl of the fortified villages includes an artist community, its Gothic facades in sandstone in shades of ochre, reddish-purple and grey.
  • Between Albi and the Tarn gorges, the river follows a 3-kilometer loop, shaping the Tarn valley into an impressive rocky peninsula. Ambialet is nestled there amidst a breath taking panorama.
  • The Millau Viaduct spans the Tarn in a single bound of 2,460 m and holds the world height record with 343m above the valley.The Méridienne (A75 motorway) is the shortest, most economical and hassle-free between Paris and the Mediterranean.
