Deeply Restful

  • 5 of 5

After spending a couple weeks in Le Mas house on this property a few years ago, my wife and I jumped at the chance to stay in Maison Boude for a longer period. The property is simply gorgeous with every avenue for wonderful rest readily available, following a busy season of life.

Vibrant villages, scenic views and long beautiful walks in the forest and countryside make this a favorite destination. The location is far enough out into the country to enjoy quiet and true solitude, while being close enough to engage in a variety of shopping, markets, castles and other sites.

Lovely restored Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lovely restored farmhouse "Maison Boude", one of the three guesthouses on the Gauginelles property. The house provides everything you need for relaxing holidays.

The house is a good starting point to discover the Tarn region, we visited local wine producers, historical villages and even went kayaking for a day.

We felt very relaxed after one week at Maison Bude, it was a perfect holiday. I can definetly recommend staying there.

Ideal for Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We luxuriated in two days of absolute tranquility and rest. The spacious rooms are appointed to give a perfect sense of classic French country living. Scenic country views in every direction. To top it off in grand style was the incredible hospitality of our hosts. They overwhelmed us with grace and kindness.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Winery tours & cooking courses.


Toulouse airport is a 50 minutes drive, and the Gaillac Train station is 15 minutes drive.


There are many nearby attractive villages and authentic markets such as in Saint Antonin Noble Val, Cordes and Castelnau de Montmiral. The Gorges du Tarn offer many sporting activities and is beautiful! The cities of Gaillac (15 min) and Albi (40 min) have much character. Also this is the region of the Cathars, so there is much rich history to discover.
