Domaine d'en Naudet


On a hilltop in the Tarn, a large and lovely gîte with room for 25 to stay comfortably – good for big family gatherings


15 beds


10 bedrooms


Sleeps 20


You can see for miles up here. 360-degree views overlook the rolling countryside of ‘Little Tuscany’, a grassy patchwork quilt of fields best seen from the bedroom of the gîte’s watchtower. Ten wood-floored bedrooms and two shiny kitchens have terracotta floors, chunky beams and ancient stone fireplaces.In summer there are trees to give shade and a pool to cool off in; on chilly days light the fires and cook market-sourced meals from nearby Lavaur. There’s so much space you can escape with ease, but this is a place for joining in.Drive into the countryside for sleepy villages and shuttered farmhouses daubed in traditional duck egg blue. In a little over an hour you can reach the episcopal red-brick city of Albi, the fortified ramparts of Carcassonne or the shaded waterways of the Canal du Midi.

The neighbourhood

High on its own hill, the gîte’s only neighbours are owners Jean and Eliane. Several pretty villages surround the house but for proper supplies you’ll need to drive into Lavaur (11 kilometres), which has shops, restaurants and a lively Saturday market. Hike or cycle along the old Roman roads walkable from the front door, saddle up at one of the local equestrian centres and sip enigmatic wines in Gaillac’s forgotten vineyards.

Local points of interest from Éliane & Jean Barcellini

  • Stunning panoramic views. Eat out on the sunny terrace or in the evenings under a canopy of stars.
  • Perfectly placed for a day trip to Albi, with its fascinating brick fortress of a cathedral, its Day of Judgement mural and its Toulouse-Lautrec museum.
  • Three UNESCO world heritage sites nearby: Albi (see above), Canal du Midi for a boat ride and the fairy-tale citadine of Carcassonne
  • The old Roman road, direct access from the domain, has been renovated for walkers, cyclists and horse riders over 24 kms - stunning landscapes
  • An 18 hole golf course on 90 hectares - Etangs de Fiac - with Introductory classes for children Clubhouse restaurant.
  • The Circuit des bastides: travel through the centuries in the streets of the fortified, medieval towns and villages perched on hill tops of which Cordes-sur-ciel is a jewel of Gothic art. Many street markets and cafes to be enjoyed there too.


Éliane & Jean Barcellini
