Chateau Gaillac rests on the edge of a small village, halfway between the historic Cathedral cities of Albi and Toulouse with easy access to the Autoroute.
The surrounding region of Gaillac is both scenic and vibrant. Whether you’re wine tasting around the local vineyards, or exploring the hill top citadels of Cordes-sur-ciel and Bastides des Albigois, there’s plenty to see and do.
The actual town of Gaillac is but a short cycle away, along the leafy banks of the river le Tarn. Once there you’ll find a mix of beautiful architecture from many periods, and a real old world charm. Make sure to drop by the Musee des Beaux-Arts, and leave plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of the adjoining French gardens and park.
Gaillac is abundant in heritage within its winding streets and tree lined esplanades, but also benefits from a modern shopping centre open-market and restaurants to suit all tastes.
The UNESCO world heritage city of Albi lies just 20 minutes from the Chateau, and boasts Europe’s largest brick building; the magnificent Cathedral of Albi – a masterpiece of Southern Gothic architecture, and a must see in the region.
Out in the peaceful surroundings of Chateau Gaillac it is easy to forget that you’re only a short way from Toulouse, a bustling twin university city. As a hub of technology within Southern France, Toulouse even has its own space visitor centre, and yet it still maintains a simplicity and romanticism that is true to the region. Bisected by the River Garonne, it is often referred to as la Ville Rose (the Pink City) due to the attractive pink terracotta bricks that make up many of the historic structures in the city.
