Perfect for couples - a spacious holiday cottage for 2 near the beautiful city of Albi in South West France

Gite near Albi, France

This 1 bedroom gite is the only gite on the property and offers spacious self-catering accommodation in a child-free environment. Set high above a wide valley in rolling countryside the gite has panoramic views over an idyllic French pastoral landscape of farms, vineyards and villages - a wonderful location from which to enjoy the best that South West France has to offer.

For a cycling holiday the surrounding area offers cyclists routes that meander up and down through some of the most delightful countryside to be found anywhere in France - no wonder the Tour de France visits the Tarn so frequently.
