Potter down the river in the pedalo: the gardens flank the bank of the Tarn. Five elegant acres surround the house, built around a courtyard in 1799. Madame occupies one wing, and the gites the other. Tranquillity reigns.
Inside the larger gite you have a kitchen, a dining area and a giant armoire for crockery; across the passage, a sitting room and a snug with TV. Bedrooms upstairs are delightful, each with a small salon. As one party you can link the gites together, and share the ‘bassin’ pool.
In Marssac are three restaurants in simple French style. Set off for the Friday market in delightful Gaillac, or the formidable cathedral of Albi; you are 20 minutes from both. Return to lovely languid gardens, super modern bathrooms, and suppers beneath starry skies.
