We enjoyed a fabulous two weeks as a large family group staying at Les Bastides. The accommodation was spacious and clean with ample outdoor seating areas and many happy meals were had 'en famille' under the cooling shade of the chestnut tree. The large pool and superbly equipped spa were much enjoyed by all. The house is well situated for trips to Albi, Gaillac, Carcassones and up into the mountains near Soreze. Lavaur provided all the local shopping we needed and the market was excellent for fresh produce, the local fresh and cured meats were delicious. Various activities enjoyed by all were; visits to a brewery and vineyard, hiking along the Roman Road, markets, eating out, golf,microlight flights and sightseeing. The cathedral in Albi was stunning and not to be missed. Thank you Caroline and Benoit for your hospitality and best wishes.
