Relaxing, luxurious and picturesque

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time staying here and would highly recommend it if you are thinking of booking.

It felt like a home from home, we were astounded at how comfortable everything was and how much space we had. Beautiful bedding, great pillows, comfy sofas, wifi, tv, great kitchen. Also beautifully clean and well maintained. Everything you could need had been thought of!

The views and local area are stunning. I went for some lovely walks and there are so few cars, very relaxing.

If you book this I'm sure you would have a fantastic time.

A Fantastic Gite in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5
Right from the start of our experience with Gite Solterre we were impressed! Before our trip George did everything possible to ensure our stay was one of the most memorable we have had. The Gite is spotless, spacious, comfortable, and very well equipped. The views of the surrounding vineyards and countryside are stunning. George was not able to be there when we arrived, so he had made arrangements with others to greet us and because of our late arrival on a Saturday night he had the refrigerator filled with food for breakfast, snacks, and fresh fruit from the local market. And there was also a very nice bottle of wine for us! (George, we still smile when thinking about the 'Arizona' Cookies...) As a party of four we had lots of room and the extra half-bath made things easy. The Gite's gazebo was the perfect place for an afternoon glass of Gaillac wine while watching the pastel colors change as the sun set to the west. We highly recommend Gite Solterre to anyone (and we think that the rate is very reasonable for a first class stay). A fantastic experience. Thank you, George!

Fantastic holiday in a great Gite

  • 5 of 5
Very friendly and helpful welcome which set the tone for our stay. We felt very much at home in this well appointed Gite. Top of the range in terms of facilities and furnishings, impeccably clean with a clear eye for every detail from the toiletries in the bathroom to bottled water by the beds. Beautiful location, lovely plunge pool with thick pool towels, and private terrace.

Getaway in the French Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
Gite Solterre is as good as they say.

The owner has kept some of the charm of the old winery with it's thick walls and stone facade and blended it with a sober, modern and tastefully decorated interior. We enjoyed using the BBQ and outdoor dining area next to the pool. The peaceful surroundings and splendid views of rolling hills covered in vineyards and sunflowers, corn fields and oak forests. provide an ideal getaway for us city dwellers. « A French Tuscany ».

The cool & quiet mid summer evenings and comfortable bedding meant we all slept well. The good quality towels and linen and the thoughtful & generous welcome package made all the difference. Games, books, wireless broadband and Satellite TV kept our grown up children entertained. A lot of thought has been put into providing top quality holiday accommodation, right down to the toiletries in the bathroom. Everything is clean& new.

The Toulouse- Lautrec Museum and St Cecile Cathedral (classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site on 1st August 2010) in Albi along with the medieval villages such as Corde-sur ciel were the cultural & historical highlights of our stay. On the 8th of August we attended the wine festival in Gaillac. Very interesting and a great occasion to meet people and learn about the region. This is the oldest wine growing region in France. The « vignerons » even offer a free tour of the vineyards & pigeonners in the region and more wine tasting during the summer months.

We were lucky enough to be there when the mirabelles in front of the gite were ripe but too early for the figs ! There’s a great butcher comme delicatessen & pastry/ bread /fruit /vegie shop just down the road.

This little paradise is one of France’s best kept secrets !
