Central courtyard also with sitting and dining areas. 55' curved UHD TV with Sky Sports/Movies & Surround sound. Fully equipped kitchen and utility room. Four 'standard type' geared bicycles are available for guests. The Farmhouse This lovely old stone farmhouse is fully renovated to a high standard with everything geared up for comfortable contemporary living - from the well equipped kitchen (including a big American fridge/freezer with ice-maker/chilled water facility) and separate utility room. The Cottage Facing the farmhouse just across a pretty central courtyard is the cottage which has accommodation for a further 4 people. It has a spacious living room flat screen TV and kitchenette with gas hob, combination microwave, fridge freezer and Nespresso coffee machine. There is 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom and a shower room. The Cottage is included in the price quoted here but is also listed separately on Tripadvisor. The house without the cottage is listed separately under Airbnb for those doing a search for up to 6 people and is priced at approximately 15% less. Pool and Garden. The private swimming pool is fully heated & an aqua-alarm is installed. Fencing ensures that small children can be kept out of the pool garden and within sight of the house. The garden is E, S & W facing with stunning views in all directions, particularly long to the south. There is also a terrace and ample parking. Both the garden and the central courtyard are excellent for outdoor living and eating.More

For some reason trip advisor will not let me rate at 5 STARs, which is certainly what should be given, not the 4 above! This was our 3rd family visit to La Poujoulie, but the first since Jim and Maggie have been running it. We...More

About the neighbourhood
The area is very beautiful and rural but within a very short distance you will come across the awe-inspiring river gorges that the area is famous for. The many stunning medieval fortified towns and villages are a joy to explore and the wine area of Gaillac is home to one of the oldest wine producing regions in France where, in recent years, there has been a growing trend to producing some excellent organic wines. Other Activities: Former open cast mine at Blaye-les-Mines, now a vast leisure centre with dry ski slope, skate park, rail tobogganing and much more. Golf: Just outside Albi you will find a picturesque 18-hole golf course next to the River Tarn.
Getting around
You need a car to get around but road networks are very good and you can get from A to B with ease.
