Description from the owner
Maison De Tourelle is one of two adjoining but independent self-catering holiday homes with shared use of the swimming pool (12m x 6m) and the park style garden, which is just over an acre in area. They are conveniently located next to a popular restaurant. The homes are part of a former chateau situated in a quiet riverside hamlet in the Cerou Valley in rural south western France, 8km from the medieval town of Cordes sur Ciel and about 20kms from the cultural town of Albi with its famous cathedral and the Toulouse Lautrec museum. Toulouse International Airport is just over an hours drive away, or Rodez Airport is a little closer taking about...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Complete peace and relaxation in this quiet and well presented s
Our 4th visit to this location and property and always well presented and prepared for our arrival. The house is certainly large enough to comfortably accomodate family of 6 with large rooms and all the modern ammenities provided to make your stay as stress free as possible. The two large shower rooms (1 up and 1 down) minimise any long waits for the bathrooms, especially before and after a long day either by the pool or exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. Kitchen facilities again make the self catering element very easy (dishwasher / washing machine) to manage your stay without feeling tied to the sink or worrying about running out of clean clothes. Although there is no oven - the hob and microwave can accomodate most dishes to feed a family - there is always the option to eat out - or enjoy plenty of fresh salads and French cuisine. Outside is a very pleasant shared (with guests of the other 2 properties) courtyard which also has a BBQ provided which makes a very pleasant evening to sit and soak up the peace and tranquility of the garden.
The Restaurant next door is now under new ownership and although the menu is deliberately limited and varied day to day - provides very good quality food and wine for very good value comparative to what you might pay for something very 'average' and a lot more expensive in either Monesties or Cordes (allow 20 Euros per head). Recommended, but you need to book ahead.
The location is beautiful, quiet and relaxing and the pool definitely compliments the whole experience perfectly. The potential hot temperatures during the summer make this the cherry on the cake for this location.
Local shops (Monesties) can provide pretty much all you need, you just need to check when they're open, or further afield (Carmeaux) there are larger supermarkets. The surrounding area can provide plenty of activities or just sightseeing - recommend albi, Gaillac, Penne, St antonine.
4th visit - is the best recommendation you can get.

Peace at Last
2011 was our 4th visit to Janine and Tony's place in Salles. The owners always make us feel more like family friends than customers. David, the building supervisor, is flexible and attentive. This year three of us stayed in La Grange, a capacious aircraft-hanger of a building, light and airy and cool in the hottest of weather. We have previously stayed in both other units, both of which are splendidly equipped and each unusual in its own way. But no-one's indoors for long this far south. The real delight of the chateau is the mature, extensive, secluded garden, private pool and its accompanying shade. The immediate area is quiet, rolling and rural, while more dramatic scenery is nearby at bastides like Cordes-sur-Ciel and Najac and in the dramatic gorges of the Viaur and aveyron. The bustling city of albi is a short drive, and the amazing market town of Villefranche about 45 kms. We fell in love first time around, about 5 years ago and will probably return every year for the forseeable future. What better recommendation is there than that?

Nous conseillons ce produit sans hésiter!! Bonnes vacances à vous!
