Le gite était parfait avec tout le confort. La piscine était bien entretenue et Le site était agréable avec une vue sur la nature magnifique. Les hôtes étaient serviables et souriants, toujours prêts à vous rendre service. Le seul bémol pour ceux qui voulaient garder le contact avec le monde du travail , le wifi ne fonctionnait pas. Mais c'était secondaire.
Merci à Mme Ruth.
Villefranche d'Albigeoise is set in the rolling countryside adjacent to the beautiful town of Albi. Albi is a UNESCO world heritage site where visitors can enjoy the ancient architecture, cafes and many restaurants to suit every budget. The countryside is perfect for long walks, while in the summer all of the local villages celebrate with family days or fetes. The rivers of the tarn region are littered with places to swim, stroll and canoe. The area around Gaillac is also well known for their wines. Art and culture are everywhere with exhibitions and live music available in most villages over the summer. The Tarn is a wonderful area to just relax or to discover the many family oriented activities and beautiful ancient sites which are all within 1 hour of La Valette.
