We had a fabulous time at this marvellous rural retreat. The facilities were exactly as described and provided us with everything that we needed. We particularly enjoyed an extremely comfortable bed the well-equipped kitchen and the marvellous pool.
The weather was fantastic for us which allowed us to enjoy a tremendous sense of peace and tranquility in this miles is from anywhere location. The nearest substantial villages are about 20k away but each of them was well worth a visit. We had some days just lounging by the pool and and others really enjoyed visiting local villages and the larger towns of Albi and Gaillac - having just one longer driving day down to Carcasson.The support from Liz and Graham to identify the best places to visit was much appreciated.
We are definitely considering returning to this great venue in years to come.
Thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed the cottage, garden and the pool and made the most of your two weeks here. Hope to see you again. L and G
We have recently returned from the most wonderful 2 weeks holiday staying at The Old Bakery. The lead up to the holiday was excellent with the owners Liz & Graham able to provide information regarding the booking & local advice on pre booking activities (kayaking) & food shopping, before we'd arrived.
On arrival the cottage lived up to expectations and excelled in terms of space & location which the pictures really do not do it justice!
The setting is perfect within beautiful large gardens and far enough away from the owners property to allow you privacy but still nearby in case you need anything.
The Pool was outstanding and having 2 older children who love the water this couldn't have been better.
The area itself is beautiful and whilst you definitely need a car (the cottage location is rural) it is worth this to explore the fabulous towns/villages nearby including Albi, Penne, St Antonin, Gaillac & Cordes. A visit to St Antonin Market & castle ruins at Penne is a must!
We would recommend this accommodation as a fantastic base for exploring the midi-Pyrenees and would love to return.
Thank you once again Graham & Liz
Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to have you stay. We hope you will come again. G&L
What an absolutely wonderful place to stay if you want that out of the way holiday.. Graham and Liz were great hosts, around when you needed them but most of the time we hardly saw them. The cottage is so cosy but cool when it got too hot to stay outside. The pool is fabulous and it was heaven to just sit and read by the pool in the peace and quiet. Graham and Liz were able to give us pointers on the best places to visit and the market at St Antonin was a must visit. Do not miss Grahams fabulous Bread Rolls they are delicious. Also I need to get the recipe from Liz for the fabulous Vegetarian Curry she made us for our first night. We absolutely loved this holiday and will definitely be returning. You do need a car as it really is very rural, to be honest we hardly moved for 2 weeks it was so idyllic but if you like to get out and about you must get a car. The cottage was beautifully clean and there was nothing we needed, home from home with all the facilities and equipment you could possibly wish for. Breakfasting outside on the terrace with the spectacular views is a special memory. I can highly recommend this cottage.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure to have you both here. We look forward to your return and welcoming you back.
