The
Experience

Follow meandering lanes to peaceful Pechauzi, at the foot of a hill below the beautiful village of Castelnau de Montmiral. There’s a relaxed atmosphere in the stone farmhouse, and a gleeful welcome from the family labradors. Sleep in spacious double rooms or cosier twins tucked under the eaves, which share a bathroom. Your hosts bring a love of food, baking and ecology to their new life in France, so there’ll be delicious breakfasts and four course dinners with regional specialities. Stay home to bake bread with Elizabeth or spot wildlife with ecological consultant Jonathan. Watersports, wine tours and markets nearby too.

Reviews

We rented the whole house for two weeks. We had a fabulous time. The house was beautiful & well-appointed, in a lovely setting, with excellent sight-seeing opportunities in easy reach. Liz cooked a delicious dinner for 10 people on one night. Jonathan took people on three walks - fascinating & informative. We would recommend Pechauzi and hope to return.

We were the first guests in Pechauzi and stayed there for two nights in July. We are a couple coming from Toulouse and we were looking for a quiet place to relax for a few days : Pechauzi was perfect ! The house and the view are beautiful, and the pool area is peaceful with confortable deckchairs in the shade. We also had a good time playing pingpong in the garden. There are several beautiful villages to visit a few minutes drive from there. The hosts are very welcoming :) A lovely place to stay and relax !

Marie, Toulouse

Beautiful location, very comfortable accommodation in large, airy en-suite bedroom. Excellent homemade continental breakfasts and delicious evening meals made with local produce on request. Friendly & wecoming hosts with good knowledge of the local area. Salt water pool with shaded loungers ideal for relaxing in quiet garden area with views over the countryside. Ideally placed for exploring picturesque hilltop villages, local vineyards and water sports. Other interesting major attractions such as Albi & Carcassone within easy distance.
