The
Experience

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.

Reviews

We arrived to a warm welcome from Pippa and George. We immediately felt at home in their lovely unpretentious house with their spacious bedrooms. Pippa and George are incredibly well informed about their area and impart their knowledge willingly. The gardens are a delight, with comfortable shady places to sit in the hot summers while enjoying the beauty of the garden and pool.

Lillian, Sawday's inspector

This is a most comfortable B&B where one instantly relaxes, thanks to the calm of its location and owners. We felt very welcome, with our dogs and enjoyed the large room and bathroom, the lovely grounds, use of the excellent swimming pool, standard but good breakfast and the peace of the location. A very short drive from Gaillac and only 20-25 minutes from Albi, this is a great B&B we would not hesitate to recommend.

Matt, London

Lost in the middle of the night; the kind Richmond-Browns retrieved us and we meekly followed to their beautiful home. We were actively encouraged to enjoy the garden and all its gems. We could not have been more comfortable and we all enjoyed a most terrific start to our holiday in France.

Location

The neighbourhood

Albi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a half hour drive and has a fabulous Gothic cathedral and the largest collection of Toulouse-Lautrec's work in its museum. The Grésigne Forest is the same distance in the other direction and there are plenty of Bastide towns within easy reach. The Tarn and Aveyron rivers are both good for canoeing.

Local points of interest from Pippa & George Richmond-Brown

  • The city of ALBI (La Ville Rouge) on the banks of the River Tarn. Now a Unesco World Heritage site, it is famed for its magnificent cathedral with its close links to Catharism and the Albigensian Crusade of the early Middle Ages.
  • CORDES -sur-CIEL, CASTELNAU- de-MONTMIRAL, PUYCELSI and several other fascinating bastide (fortified) towns and villages in the surrounding area.
  • GAILLAC, also lying on the banks of the Tarn river, is a thriving old market town and the centre of one of the oldest wine-growing regions in France.
  • Plenty of outdoor activities - including canoeing down the Tarn and Aveyron rivers and hiking in the forests of the Grésigne and Sivens.
  • Visit CASTRES for the Goya Museum and MONTAUBAN for the Ingres Museum.

Introducing

George and Pippa have lived here for over 30 years; they brought up their children in the house and created a wonderful garden from scratch. They love to welcome guests and many return year after year.
