Overview

Wedding Venue Exclusive Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Hot Tub

Set amongst the bucolic landscapes of the Golden Triangle of the Tarn, with views of vineyards and sunflower fields around you, this is an exceptional home for those looking to experience the laid-back atmosphere and idyllic villages of  the ‘French Tuscany’.

The Manoir is the original Maison de Maitre and has been converted into a beautiful and restful home for eight guests. Every comfort has been thought of, such as the Egyptian cotton sheets, hotel-quality bath and pool towels and Sonos speakers in every one of the four en-suite bedrooms. Indeed, the owners wish to create the feeling that guests are staying in a contemporary boutique hotel yet with the character and comfort of their own historical home.

Sip fine Gaillac wine by the fireplace listening to the high-end music system in the relaxing lounge or keen musicians can play the beautifully tuned Broadwood grand piano. Browse the many novels and reference works in the elegant library or sit back in your cinema seat in the movie room where a HD projector will play a great film or you can watch Sky or Netflix on the Apple TV. The beautiful kitchen and dining room are fit for a feast and you can hire your own private professional chef to prepare a meal to remember.

Yet on warm sunny days it’s all about the outdoors whether you are dining al-fresco looking out towards the vineyards or relaxing by the infinity swimming pool with mesmerising views of summer sunflowers. The glorious gardens are filled with lavender, roses and olive trees and here you can sense the tranquillity of the region. There’s also a delightful Pigeonnier, so typical of the Tarn yet this one has been uniquely converted into a poolside bar, gym and hamman over three floors. From the very top you can even peep through to see the majestic Pyrénées.

Just across the lane from the Manoir, yet self-contained and private, is the characterful Cottage Du Vin which is included in the rental rate for 12 guests or can also be rented separately. All on one level and suitable for guests with restricted mobility, the cottage was formerly the old winery. It has now been lovingly converted into a spacious holiday home of a high standard.

Picture-book windows look out over the nearby fields and vineyards from the cottage's open-plan living-dining room and kitchen whilst French doors lead out to the charming walled garden, the perfect spot for morning coffee or a dip in the inviting plunge pool. There’s also a pretty orchard with a romantic gazebo and barbecue with great views of the surrounding countryside.

Two lovely bedrooms with fine bed-linen and towels plus a family bathroom including a walk-in shower complete this pretty abode. This could be the perfect spot for grandparents or friends looking for a little more privacy yet just a few steps away from the grand Manoir.

Set on the edge of a little hamlet, the nearest village is only 3km away and features a boulangerie, bank and a couple of grocery stores including a family-owned business selling local artisan products. Just ten minutes away is the historic town Gaillac, famous world-wide for its fine wines using using rare grape varieties, which you can sample in the town’s Maisons des Vins or surrounding vineyards. 

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Albi is 25 minutes away and you can also discover a wealth of idyllic hilltop bastide villages nearby such as Castelnau-de-Montmiral, Cordes-sur-Ciel, Puycelci and Bruniquel, some of which are classified as France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

If you’re craving city life, head to Toulouse or even Carcassonne, both worthy of a fine day out. That said, you may prefer to spend your time in the peaceful surroundings of the Manoir and Cottage with their exceptional interiors and splendid setting.

Manoir Du Vin and Cottage Du Vin are on the edge of a little hamlet in the glorious Tarn department, part of the Occitanie region in the Midi-Pyrénées, south-west France.

The nearest village is only 3km away featuring a couple of grocery stores including a lovely family-run shop selling locally sourced artisan products, a boulangerie, bank and a pharmacy whilst the villages of Castelnau-de-Montmiral (8km) and Cordes-sur-Ciel (16km) are just a little further with restaurants and further shops. Large supermarkets can be found on the outskirts of Gaillac.

In what is known as the ‘Golden Triangle of Tarn’ the landscapes of this region are filled with summer sunflowers, fields of lavender and the wonderful vineyards of Gaillac, one of France’s oldest wine-producing region. With its gently rolling hills, forests and verdant valleys, this region is often called the ‘French Tuscany’, not only because of its natural beauty but also its fine wine and cuisine as well as friendly locals.

Gaillac (9km) lies on the River Tarn and is a beautiful place to visit. It’s most famous for its fine wines using rare grape varieties that are held in very high regard worldwide. The history of this town and its wine production dates back to Roman times and it goes without saying that throughout the town in the Maisons des Vins and surrounding vineyards there are plenty of places to sample the wine. Other highlights include the historic Abbey Saint-Michel and the atmospheric Friday morning market across the town. In the summer the area is alive with apéro concerts and other local events and festivals linked to wine and gastronomy.

The bastide village of Castelnau-de-Montmiral (8km) is classed as one of France’s ‘Most Beautiful Villages’, with good reason with its medieval architecture and stunning arcades, especially the main square. Puycelci (20km) and Bruniquel (30km) are two other ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ you may wish to discover during your stay.

Cordes-sur-Ciel (16km) is a magnificent 12th century hilltop town in a breathtaking location, sometimes above the mist on cooler days. Explore the steep narrow lanes and admire the many beautiful Gothic buildings. The Jardins du Paradis on the edge of the village is a particularly magical place to visit during your trip to Cordes-sur-Ciel.

Albi (28km) is an amazing old city with a rose-brick cathedral, beautiful viewpoints of the river, wonderful medieval buildings amongst the cobbled streets filled with shops and restaurants and a fantastic food hall. It's a classified UNESCO World Heritage site and is a must-visit during your time in the Tarn.

Another hilltop village not to be missed is Saint-Antonin Noble Val (32km) with a great Sunday morning market and there is also the opportunity to hire canoes or kayaks to explore the Averyon gorges. Activity lovers will also find climbing and caving opportunities near here.

There are also many wonderful walking trails across this region, horse-riding, a scenic golf course near Albi and great cycling routes across the area. Indeed, the Tour de France often passes close by and will do so again in July 2019.

Toulouse (70km/1hr), France’s fifth largest city and an international centre for all things aviation, is just one hour away with its historic centre and amazing Cité de l’Espace. Magnificent Carcassonne (160km) is also a worthy day trip, reached in just over 90 minutes by car.

Region

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.

Take a boat trip on the River Tarn in historic and beautiful Albi or hire canoes/kayaks in Saint-Antonin Noble Val where you can explore the Averyon gorges. There are also climbing and caving opportunities near here.

There are also two horse-riding centres nearby as well as some lovely walks and gentle areas for cycling.

History lovers will adore the abundance of medieval hill-top bastide towns and villages and there are a number of family-friendly festivals taking place throughout the year such as the Grand Falconer’s Festival in July in idyllic Cordes-sur-Ciel when the streets are filled with festivities, medieval tournaments and falconry performances.

Toulouse, France’s fifth largest city and an international centre for all things aviation, is just one hour away with its historic centre and amazing Cité de l’Espace, a theme park centred around space.

  • We had a wonderful time!

    Posted by Shirley & Vidar on 05/08/2019

    Everything that we needed, rest, sun and a beautiful place to be.

  • Beautiful home in idyllic surroundings!

    Posted by Geeta on 01/08/2019

    We had honestly the best holiday and break I have had and it was a much needed pause from a hectic lifestyle. All the little extras you left like spices / herbs / after sun really helped as we came via Eurostar so couldn’t pack a lot of things. My children learned to swim this week and I made sure I was up early to see the beautiful sunrise. The villa has been thought out so well and is a pleasure to stay in - the children were thrilled with the cinema room and cooled off watching sound of music and narnia! ( cue lots of running outside singing “the hills are alive“, which was apt for the surroundings!) and the gym was fab!
    Many thanks again, we hope to have the good fortune to stay again in future years!

  • Will be back

    Posted by Tania on 04/02/2019

    Spacious and extremely comfortable accommodation with wonderful views over the vineyards and rolling countryside. Very well-equipped kitchen and beautifully maintained swimming pool, hammam, gym and cinema room. Super base for exploring the local area, and great for both smaller and larger groups – one of those special houses which doesn’t feel empty with two people, whilst you can always find a quiet corner when there’s a full house. Have stayed on a number of occasions and will certainly be back

  • Lovely House

    Posted by Alasdair on 12/12/2018

    Such a comfortable and relaxing house. The bedrooms and facilities are great - lovely en suites, a superbly equipped and spacious kitchen, pool, gym, cinema room, hi-fi - but it is the atmosphere which makes the house really special. It is elegantly and tastefully decorated and very welcoming. We could have spent every day relaxing in the gardens and talking and dining on the terrace under the stars in the evening. We didn't, of course, because there are some fascinating day trips to Gaillac, Albi and the bastide villages to be had, the local vineyards to visit and some excellent restaurants in the neighbourhood. We hope to return next year!

  • AMAZING

    Posted by Cassandra on 15/10/2018

    Sleep clinic! The best sleep I had in years! So quiet
