The Tarn River meanders its way down along the precipitous landscapes of the Gorges du Tarn. Close to its junction with the Garonne River is the “Ville Rose” Montauban, the second oldest bastide town in southern France, and birthplace of the painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres; the fine museum dedicated to him now stands in the former episcopal palace. At Moissac, the 12th century cloister and south porch at the abbey church of St-Pierre are famous throughout the art world, and worth visiting from anywhere nearby. A number of “plus beaux villages de France” are within reach: Auvillar, dating back to Roman times, is a fortified village overlooking the Garonne with a unique circular covered market; gorgeous Lauzerte was a stop on the pilgrim’s route to St-Jean-de-Campostelle. Actually in the Tarn, but worth the journey, is Albi, home to a stunning Gothic cathedral, built in red brick between the 13th and 15th centuries, and a fine museum devoted to its most famous native son, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Attractive personalised furnishings greet you in this warm house, but my favourite space is the covered terrace the length of the house overlooking the pool - no need to travel much further!
