Overview

Charm, gastronomy and tranquillity in an 18th century Manor House, halfway between Toulouse and Albi. A warm welcome awaits you in this luxury B&B, set in a 6 acre park with hundred year old cedars and fruit trees, a huge pool, terrace for outside wining and dining, and parking. The en-suite guestrooms have been renovated with great attention paid to comfortable amenities while highlighting the traditional character of the house. In winter crackling fires are kept burning. Golf, 'bastides', vineyards. Open all year.



Originally a hunting lodge dating from before the French Revolution, this charming B&B offers peace and quiet in a convivial atmosphere. Excellent 'table d'hotes': partaking of the 'Cordon Bleu' food around the cosmopolitan dining table is a must! French and local specialities are lovingly prepared by your hostess using wherever possible local produce. Vegetarian cooking upon request. The shady park with its many benches invites you to relax. For the more active there is the large pool, table tennis, 'boules' and bikes for hire.



Tucked away from hectic city life, in the rural department TARN (81)in Southwest France, the charming B&B le Manoir de la Maysou is the ideal holiday spot to recharge your batteries, midway between ALBI with its famous Toulouse-Lautrec Museum and Cathedral and TOULOUSE, a thriving city and shoppers' paradise, with numerous museums, concert halls, theatres, aeronautics centre, etc. Its international airport is at 45km. Carcassone is at 1 1/2 hours' drive.



This unspoilt area of France has a wealth of history, ancient churches and medieval villages.

Nature abounds with 120 km of designated walking paths, ideal for birdwatchers. Trips to local 'bastides' (fortified villages) such as Cordes sur Ciel, make wonderful days out.
