Tom and Sheda are long time friends who have been inviting us to visit for a long time. Because of this, I am specifically going to review the gite itself rather than the quality of the hosting (which was fantastic, but we are biased). This was my and my husband's mini-moon. We couldn't have had a more romantic setting. The...

Tom & Sheda provided the ideal holiday for us : all of the comforts of home, plus advice & guidance on our travel plans. We genuinely felt that we were amongst friends who were ensuring that we were exposed to the best of what the Tarn area had to offer. Recommended without reservation. Tim & Lisa

Additional amenities & feature info
The location of South Tarn Gites is rural but not far from Lautrec Village (less than 5 kms), Castres (10 kms) and Albi (30 kms) all of which have restaurants, bars, cafes and supermarkets.There is a walking and cycling trail close by (1.5kms) so ideal for discovering other hamlets and villages. Or you could just relax and stay in the large garden (7000 sq mtrs) by passing your time away birdwatching. There are golden orieles, variety of woodpeckers, nuthatch, red squirrels, etc. Too numerous to mention them all. They are attracted to the orchard as are other fauna and flora. When the fruit trees (and walnuts, hazelnuts,almonds) are ripe you are welcome to help yourself.

About the neighborhood
The Tarn region as a whole is an ideal place to relax and unwind; said to be a "a little tuscany" in France. There are a variety of outdoor activities for you to choose from, such as horse-riding, golf, swimming, sailing, wind surfing, canoeing, off-road buggies, walking, cycling and nature trails, a bird sanctuary and many more.

Castres is a beautiful town built on the banks of the River Agout and is just a ten minute drive. It has a return boat trip from the centre to Parc Gourjade, where you can spend the day playing golf and park games or visit the large indoor and outdoor swimming pools and ice skating at L'Archipel. Or simply take a picnic. For art lovers, Castres has one of the largest Hispanic collections in France, at the Goya Museum in the Town Centre.
