About the Owner

Jeanne and David have lived in the Tarn for the last 20 years and brought up their 4 children in France. Now the children have all left home we are opening our house to guests for the second year running. We thoroughly enjoy meeting all our guests and always have an evening together whether just supper or a nice glass of chilled local gaillac wine with a walk around the main chateau and park.

Comfort in the Tarn

  • 5 of 5

An extremely comfortable Gîte at the side of the owners' wonderfully restored country house/chateâu. Wonderful countryside and views. Well appointed and spacious accommodation with everything you need. Use of a large swimming pool. Within easy reach of many interesting villages and larger towns. Good food, wine and local produce.

The owners, Jeanne and David, were consummate and generous hosts. My wife and I had a very enjoyable time here and cannot recommend it more highly.

Excellent accommodation in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

The property is a lovely typical rustic French chateau in a beautiful area of France. If you want rest and recuperation there would be nowhere better than Corduries in Castle de

Montmiral. Plenty of places to see and Vinyards to visit if you want to or just relax by the pool. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

Peaceful retreat in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

This was an accurately described and very well maintained property. Stunning pool. Attentive and welcoming owners. The overflow cottage was also well presented. Quiet and relaxing. A car is necessary. The nearby Toulouse lautrec museum is excellent and the surrounding countryside very attractive The drive from Toulouse airport is relatively quick and easy.

From the Owner

We fell in love with this beautiful old Chateau and have lovingly restored it. One of the main reason we bought was because in whichever direction you looked there was a beautiful view which we just couldn't find in England! The light here is so special and we never tire of being amazed by it.

Our property is 10 minutes walk from the village and the activity of the bars and restaurants - yet completely in the middle of its 15 acres of land including lake forest and formal gardens.
