Other reviewers have covered the main points so we will not repeat it all. Matt & Kay were excellent, welcoming hosts. Our room, the Stables (Ecurie) was on the ground floor with no other rooms above. Like the whole house, this was in a peaceful position with fantastic views across a valley. This room also has a private outside sitting... More

Comfortable, great position. Lovely views. Friendly, good breakfasts. A short (uphill) walk to Cordes, which is well worth a visit. Swimming pool and garden terrace to relax. New owners this year, could do with more tourist info leaflets.

We spent three nights at Aurifat revisiting Cordes sur Ciel after about 25 years. The position of the property is beautiful and the owners were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Though very inviting we did not use the pool but it was there if required. The beds were very comfy and it was easy to relax in the room or... More

Spending 9 days in Cordes sur Ciel for a wedding and some walking in the area, Aurifat was perfect for both its location and as a escape to the Tarn / Aveyron region. I stayed in two rooms over the course of my visit, Chambre Jardin and Rossignol. both with very comfortable beds, new luxury fitted bathrooms and tranquil views... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Aurifat is situated below the beautiful hilltop village of Cordes Sur Ciel,( a 10 min walk up a steep hill,not for the unfit! ) Our room was lovely, tastefully decorated, immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed. All the rooms have their own little terrace with table and chairs. Breakfast is served on the... More

From the beautiful location just outside of Cordes-sur-Ciel to the warm welcome of the owners, Matt and Kay, everything about our 4 night stay at Aurifat exceeded our expectations. Our room was lovely - the bed was extremely comfortable and our view facing south across a valley was enticing. The pool was the largest I have ever seen at a... More

Aurifat is the perfect location for a chilled out, get-away-from-it-all holiday. We stayed five days and my only regret is that we didn't book for longer. The location is just beautiful - you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but it's only a short walk from Cordes. Matt and Kay are great hosts, and provide delicious breakfasts on... More

This is our second time of staying there, the last was ten years ago, but the scenery and charm are as we remembered, the views are superb across a valley to the hills beyond and just below the wonderful historic town of Cordes which is a steep but rewarding walk with superb flowers increasing in abundance as you near the...

Having just stayed 2 nights at Aurifat we have been spoiled by the warm welcome, superb setting, stunning views, and traditional medieval ambiance of this delightful place. Very tasteful decor complimenting the character of the house, with modern bathroom facilities and comfortable beds. Breakfast was perfect! Good coffee, home made bread, fresh fruit, croissants, and looking out over the beautiful... More

Hard to find, more difficult to get to even with GPS, no AC, no screen (think summer), no public area to sit or relax, only your room, which has very low doors (hitting your head at least a couple times per stay is unavoidable but hopefully no scalping), does not take credit cards, Euro only so bring cash.

Matthew N, Owner at Aurifat, responded to this review

I was very surprised at this review so let me respond to each point in turn: Regarding finding Aurifat : all guests are sent not only the GPS coordinates which are located on the house but also a written description in either French, English or American which gives the exact routes, where to turn at landmarks etc. This gets virtually...
