Our Chambre d'hôte is a recently converted grenier, or barn, designed to create a beautiful, luxurious self contained retreat for guests.
The chambre d'hôte is accessed from a quiet laneway (Rue de la Boucarie). The spacious, comfortable room, with en-suite leads out to the atmospheric walled garden to the rear. Glazed double doors at the front open out to spectacular views across the Cerou Valley, and timber shutters and curtains allow guests to control the level of privacy they prefer. In addition, guests may have access to the magnificent library (bibliothèque ) adjacent to the chambre, and also the well-appointed laundry.
The original 14th century stone feature wall, fully re-pointed, provides an historic reminder of the medieval origins of the Maison. The quality furnishings and decor create a welcome retreat after a day exploring the cité and the region, a chance to relax in the comfort of this quality chambre d'hôte.
Guests have full use of the atmospheric walled garden to its rear. The double doors to the front open out to spectacular views across the Cerou Valley, and the shutters and curtains allow privacy.
The vistas extend across the peaceful Cerou Valley, stretching to the distant village of Mouzieys-Panens. The scenery changes hue from season to season, from the green grains of May to the golden hay of summer, through to a riot of yellow sunflowers in July, and straw coloured heads of maize: a mesmerising patchwork of fields and homes. And if you are fortunate, you will experience the 'sur-ciel', and sit above the clouds as the mist swirls in the valley below.
When you arrive in Cordes, you will be met in the lower village and be shown to the chambre d'hôte, and made welcome.
