I visited Aurifat in February after the area had been covered in snow and was still very icy. Matt and Kay are wonderful, caring hosts. My room was lovely, spacious and very well decorated. It was beautifully warm and I slept like a baby in the amazingly comfortable bed. The views are equally breathtaking from the room, well appointed bathroom... More

We echo the sentiments in previous positive reviews. Difficult to find, but well worth it. Beautiful views and quirky interior due to age of property. The welcome we received was excellent and included a cup of tea delivered to the room by Kay, who along with Matt make excellent hosts.

Very very nice staff, a beautiful and CLEAN establishment, quiet and tranquil setting and very close proximity to Cordes-sur-Ciel make this a top choice. Would definitely stay here again. Bravo to the staff for being so nice and accomodating in every way!

We loved this accommodation, probably the most of our three week trip to rural France and Paris. Matt is from Britain so speaks excellent English. The views from our room was breathtaking. Truly a treat. Just a hint to help find this lovely B&B - Matt included the lat and long with his email to us, and we entered that... More

gorgeous. A little tough to find; they sent directions but the landmarks in the lower town that you needed to find were a bit obscure.....but we made it work.....very quiet location, easy to walk up back streets into the bastide town of Cordes....Matt and Kay are truly wonderful - we felt at home immediately - whether by hook or crook...

Aurifat really is a very special place. It is situated on the Southern side of Cordes hill, but very much in the countryside. We had a beautiful room with a terrace overlooking the valley. The crisp percale bedlinen, towels and excellent shower were lovely. We enjoyed the fresh fruit salad and freshly pressed coffee for breakfast. Matthew and Kay are... More

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
