George and Pippa have been running their B&B for years; they are relaxed, good-natured and enthusiastic about their corner of France. Browse the ‘welcome table’ for local leaflets and brochures or just ask your hosts – they are more than happy to book a table at a restaurant or point you in the direction of the best markets.
Set in rolling vineyards and farmland, Sudre is a warm friendly house with beautiful furniture, shelves full of books, big inviting bedrooms and a very lovely garden full of fragrant corners. You’re only five minutes from the market town of Gaillac, famed for its ancient vineyards and pretty riverside setting. Visit the abbey Saint-Michel.
Breakfast is served around one big table in the bright dining room: fresh bread and pastries from the bakery, yogurt, fruit and cereals, eggs from the hens. You are genuinely encouraged to treat the house as your own so grab a book and find a shady spot in the garden to read; leap in the pool, have a game of boules. There are bikes to borrow, tennis racquets and ping-pong. Children are very welcome.
