“Most relaxing holiday ever”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at La Bonnetie last summer, and it was one of our best family holidays ever. The garden provided hours of adventure and exploration for our kids(then 7 and 11), and the pool was perfect to spend the hottest hours of the day cooling off and planning for that evening's barbecue.
The grounds are spectacular - with views across a beautiful valley and a genuine "away from it all" feeling, but the hilltop town of Cordes is just down the road, with lots of shops and restaurants. Albi is also close and has a wider range of shopping and eating options.
The house is classic French stone farmhouse, authentic but with everything you need in terms of facilities: modern kitchen, satellite tv with UK channels, and internet.
It is the type of place that inspires you be creatively lazy - messing about doing nothing that is important but all that is essential. Highly recommended!

“Beautiful rural location”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Have stayed here two summers in a row. Both times with children ageing from 29 to 3. La Bonetie has something for everyone; a secluded and peaceful swimming pool to lounge beside; a large and rambling garden for children to have adventures in and plenty of space indoors to find a quiet corner to read. The area has lots going on: medieval festival at Penne; night market close by in Cordes; excellent riding schools and if you are a runner there are some fantastic routes - 5km to 30km and road or trail.

“Great relaxing house”

person found this review helpful

We have stayed at the house several times. It is very comfortable, simple and clean with excellent amenities nearby. The house is not cluttered so easy to keep clean and tidy even with all the family there! The kitchen is well stocked as are the bedrooms. The pool area is perfect - slightly away from the house, safe and a superb size for swimming and playing pool games. There is space for badminton and the area is great for walking. The local town of Cordes-sur-Ciel is excellent with several places for coffee, there is a good selection of restaurants in different price ranges. The town of Albi, gives you excellent international shopping if that is what you are after, not to mention good galleries and museums. Thoroughly recommended!

“Rural France at its best”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed this summer and loved the place. The house is on the side of a small beautiful valley and is secluded, but only a couple of miles from Cordes Sur Ciel with the all important boulangerie as well as small supermarkets. The cottage is well appointed and clean and has a lovely garden with pool as well as a garage with table tennis.

There are a couple of restaurants within walking (staggering!) distance which is handy, with more in Cordes itself. The main town Albi is well worth a visit and only 20 mins away. The area has many vineyards and we dropped by at a few for tastings. There is even a distillery 5 mins away with a very passable whisky !

The house is lovely with terraces for the various times of the day, the one by the pool getting the evening sun.
