We had an excellent stay by Liliane & Jos end of July 2013. A warm welcome. We were lucky to stay in the charming room 'Métaphore': a large (2 ad+2chd), nicely furnitured room with a very beautiful bathroom. The breakfast was superb with fresh local products, several homemade jams and the dinner was also superb: healthy Mediterranean cooking with fresh... More

Staying with Liliane and Jos was like staying with friends. We went off in the day and came back to have supper with them most evenings. Liliane's cooking was absolutely superb and with local, organic produce and wines- like eating in a Michelin starred restaurant - and the setting, eating outside with the scent of the herbs growing around the...

We stayed here on our way from the Loire to Provence, using Alistair Sawday's website to find it. The Belgian hosts, Liliane and Jos were most welcoming and had lots of great advice re local walks and tourist sites. Lovely clean and comfortable rooms and great food for dinner and breakfast. Highly recommended.

We found Lilian and Jos's Chambre d'hote on the internet and booked a week this March 2013 on the strength of the good reports. The reality was as good as the promise. Liliane and Jos could not have been better hosts and we had a wonderful time in their lovely house in a beautiful part of Tarn. Our room was... More

Once again we spent a wonderful three days with Liliane & Jos at their delightful farmhouse. Lots of good organic home grown vegs ,locally sourced meat and good Gaillac wine. This year we visited Penne, Bruniquel and Rabestens - all within easy driving distance. Puycelsi is a must see. This is as good as it gets in France.

We loved our stay at Artichaud! We had received a 2 night stay from my parents in law as a present, who stayed there this summer and truly loved the place! They were right! Liliane and Jos are very welcoming people. We had a very tasty meal and 2 comfortable nights sleep in the huge suite! Artichaud is set on... More

A stay at Artichaud is a perfect opportunity to give yourself a "breather"! Delicious home-cooked food, very comfortable, well-appointed accommodation, a warm, personal welcome, all in an area with much to explore - you will want to go back again very soon. Jos and Liliane don't just feed and accommodate their guests; they are both very well-informed and knowledgeable, not... More

We have friends in Castelnau de Montmiral and as a consequence have stayed in hotels and chambres d'hote in the area several times. We were here for five nights in September and feel this is the best place we have tried. The house is very comfortable, there is a very large and pleasant garden with a good sized pool. Our... More
