Manoir Du Vin and Cottage Du Vin are on the edge of a little hamlet in the glorious Tarn department, part of the Occitanie region in the Midi-Pyrénées, south-west France. The nearest village is only 3km away featuring a couple of grocery stores including a lovely family-run shop selling locally sourced artisan products, a boulangerie, bank and a pharmacy whilst the villages of Castelnau-de-Montmiral (8km) and Cordes-sur-Ciel (16km) are just a little further with restaurants and further shops. Large supermarkets can be found on the outskirts of Gaillac. In what is known as the ‘Golden Triangle of Tarn’ the landscapes of this region are filled with summer sunflowers, fields of lavender and the wonderful vineyards of Gaillac, one of France’s oldest wine-producing region. With its gently rolling hills, forests and verdant valleys, this region is often called the ‘French Tuscany’, not only because of its natural beauty but also its fine wine and cuisine as well as friendly locals. Gaillac (9km) lies on the River Tarn and is a beautiful place to visit. It’s most famous for its fine wines using rare grape varieties that are held in very high regard worldwide. The history of this town and its wine production dates back to Roman times and it goes without saying that throughout the town in the Maisons des Vins and surrounding vineyards there are plenty of places to sample the wine. Other highlights include the historic Abbey Saint-Michel and the atmospheric Friday morning market across the town. In the summer the area is alive with apéro concerts and other local events and festivals linked to wine and gastronomy. The bastide village of Castelnau-de-Montmiral (8km) is classed as one of France’s ‘Most Beautiful Villages’, with good reason with its medieval architecture and stunning arcades, especially the main square. Puycelci (20km) and Bruniquel (30km) are two other ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ you may wish to discover during your stay. Cordes-sur-Ciel (16km) is a magnificent 12th century hilltop town in a breathtaking location, sometimes above the mist on cooler days. Explore the steep narrow lanes and admire the many beautiful Gothic buildings. The Jardins du Paradis on the edge of the village is a particularly magical place to visit during your trip to Cordes-sur-Ciel. Albi (28km) is an amazing old city with a rose-brick cathedral, beautiful viewpoints of the river, wonderful medieval buildings amongst the cobbled streets filled with shops and restaurants and a fantastic food hall. It's a classified UNESCO World Heritage site and is a must-visit during your time in the Tarn. Another hilltop village not to be missed is Saint-Antonin Noble Val (32km) with a great Sunday morning market and there is also the opportunity to hire canoes or kayaks to explore the Averyon gorges. Activity lovers will also find climbing and caving opportunities near here. There are also many wonderful walking trails across this region, horse-riding, a scenic golf course near Albi and great cycling routes across the area. Indeed, the Tour de France often passes close by and will do so again in July 2019. Toulouse (70km/1hr), France’s fifth largest city and an international centre for all things aviation, is just one hour away with its historic centre and amazing Cité de l’Espace. Magnificent Carcassonne (160km) is also a worthy day trip, reached in just over 90 minutes by car.
