The
Experience

Here is a restoration that is both beautiful and rustic. You arrive at the creeper-clad 19th-century farmhouse by a very pretty back road through wooded country. Inside, a friendly, calming home full of antiques swims in crisp light. Walls are exposed stone or white, the floors are terracotta, the ceilings are beamed in heavy oak: sense the weight of age. The master bedroom has a good big bed and a romantic feel, a couple of bedrooms come with stripped pine boards, another, super-private, is entered by a staircase that rises from the covered courtyard where pots grow colour. You will find two huge open fireplaces in the sitting room, a big rustic dining table beneath more great beams, a generous and delightfully designed kitchen. Good teak furniture stands on the terrace and the lawn runs down to the pool; there’s a vegetable garden you are welcome to plunder and a marked trail that leads from the truly gorgeous garden into the hills. Dutch Monique is friendly, hands-on, bakes her bread daily and is a great cook. Wonderful.

Reviews

In 2012 we visited Puech Malou, a very beatiful farmhouse, for the 15th time. You can imagine it feels like home for us now. Harry and Monique were again really very caring. We had a great time working together in the garden. Enjoying a good glas of wine and lovely diners afterwards. This year we will be back. Thank you for a lovely stay again.

Beautiful rooms in very quiet surroundings. Very nicely decorated. Monique and Harry make you feel at home. You can bring your dog, which was important for us. City of Albi is nearby and is really something. The cathedral is something we have never seen anywhere else. We were late in the season (late September), no swimming, but the place has all the comfort you could want. We also liked the joint dinners, with utmost care prepared by Monique. Outside when possible and inside when it became too cold. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The last two weeks of September 2015 we spent at Maison Puech Malou. We had been there twice before. The weather was fantastic, the rooms, the hospitality felt like coming home, like all the previous times. Even so late in the year you could still swim. Everything was just great class and quality This is France as we have it all in our dreams. Thank you Monique and Harry !!! Loes and Frits from Amsterdam

What a wonderful place, which exceeded our expectations! The farmhouse is truly lovely, the area is beautiful and the views fabulous. Harry and Monique are really wonderful hosts, and Lolita their dog is super too. We absolutely loved our stay and would recommend to anyone considering renting this farmhouse is the Tarn Valley.
