Cordes-sur-Ciel, Tarn, Occitanie
France still has the dream like quality we search for in our holiday destinations. The Tarn region in Southern France is removed from the well worn paths of foreign tourism and offers serenity and spectacular scenery to those looking for new adventures. Our recently renovated 2 bedroom cottage is a comfortable, tasteful home with splended views across the Cerou Valley. La Maison des Oiseaux offers you the opportunity to spend a while in a wonderfully perserved, yet lively, medieval bastide village with all the comforts of the 21st century living.

We had a fab week here after a friendly welcome from Janine. House was lovely but it is definatly the view that makes it. Cordes was a lovely town but we were a little disappointed with the standard of restaurants but plenty of places to eat. Lovely places to visit locally, great Sunday market nearby. The only negative was being...

We stayed in Maison des Oiseaux for a week in May 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The responsive service of the owner and the property manager made booking the house and then moving in on a public holiday very easy indeed. The old village at the top of the hill is delightful for art and craft shopping, restaurants and...

We spent 10 relaxing days here at the beginning of May and everything exceeded our expectations. The cottage is extremely well appointed with sweeping views over the countryside and a tasteful courtyard containing roses and blossoming wisteria. It's a short walk up to the charming medieval hill top village and down to the newer village with its wonderful Saturday morning...

About the neighborhood
Cordes sur Ciel is in the Tarn region. The Tarn is known for its long views, deep river gorges, fertile farmland, vineyards and forests. It is situated in the Midi-Pyrenees, the largest region in France.
Cordes sur Ciel is located 75km north east of Toulouse and is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in France. As one of the gems of the region, its unique 13th and 14th century Gothic houses are reminiscent of Renaissance Tuscany, and cobbled streets, large Halle (open air marketplace) and stone building are evocative of an earlier era. Our house sits just below the medieval town square.

How to get there
Airport: Toulouse: 0.0 mi
Railway: Toulouse: 0.0 mi
When you leave Toulouse station or airport, head for Albi. 10 minutes out from the airport there is a sharp turn right onto the A68; not a lot of forewarning. The rest are okay...You need to follow the blue signs to the Peage (toll) road; you will go via the peripherique.

The toll is €1.40, so try to have that in loose change to throw into the basket at the toll booths as this is the easiest way to get through. There are booths that will take notes and give change. Some booths are staffed.

Once you are on the autoroute drive to exit 9 to Gaillac, and leave the autoroute. The roads from here are national roads, and just follow signs to Cordes sur Ciel. The whole trip will take about one and a quarter or half hours.
