Right in the centre of ancient Albi, down a tiny side street, young enthusiastic owners Patricia and Mario have created a fresh and appealing refuge replete with character. The airy, inviting bedrooms with white-washed floorboards swathed in pale rugs feature carefully chosen brocante furniture that’s both practical and beautiful to look at. Bathrooms are ultra modern and also chock full of style. Breakfast on the terrace on sunny days and drink in those amazing vistas of the city’s stunning medieval cathedral. Whatever you need, from shops to cafes, restaurants and galleries are right on your doorstep – Albi is all yours!
