“Wonderful Gites”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Tom and Sheda are long time friends who have been inviting us to visit for a long time. Because of this, I am specifically going to review the gite itself rather than the quality of the hosting (which was fantastic, but we are biased).

This was my and my husband's mini-moon. We couldn't have had a more romantic setting. The gites are in the tiny village of Olmieres, a very picturesque hamlet in the south tarn about 10 minutes from the stunningly beautiful Lautrec and the thriving market town of Castres.

There are two gites, both of which are very nice and extremely good value. We stayed in the 4 star Gite for 2. This was huge! All mod cons with wood burning fire with a giant bedroom, and two separate living rooms. The shower is very good and the decor is traditional, slick and old-worldly. It definitely feels very french despite the owners being from Yorkshire.

French is spoken as well as English.

As well as the gite itself, Sheda is also a qualified masseur and holistic therapist. She also recently TEFL qualified and offers classes and support for those wanting to learn to speak English. (I, on the other hand, was teaching her to swear in French!)

I cannot recommend enough.

“Perfect choice.”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The gite is very well situated, close to Toulouse, Albi and many pretty villages.
Tarn is beautiful, very relaxing. Great food. Lautrec is the nearest village. It is quite beautiful, with bakeries and restaurants.

The hosts are very kind and attentive to the guests' needs. It was more like staying at a friend's house, which was very homely and inviting.

“Wonderful Gites, Perfect location, Lovely lovely owners”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from five days in these gites and we must say everything was perfect. The gites are very well equipped they have everything you could wish for. Tom & Sheda the owners are so lovely and very welcoming. they go beyond what you would expect from owners and their evening meals are delicious. It's good to explore the area and you can hire bikes if you wish. There is a local market and the castle at Carcassonne is spectacular. we will definitely be retuning.

“Better than "just like home"!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This was our second visit to South Tarn Gites and we have now stayed in both gites. They are clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped. The location is wonderful, surrounded by a lovely secluded garden, with lots of places to walk or cycle close by, and within easy reach of Albi, with its beautiful cathedral and Toulouse-Lautrec museum, the pretty little town of Castres with its fascinating twice-weekly market, Toulouse, Carcassonne and the Mediterranean coast. Our perfect hosts, Sheda and Tom, have become friends and we are now planning our 2014 visit.

“Poppies, ripe cherry trees, Goya and bookstore cafes”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

In the fields of Monpinier, near Lautrec, this Gite has bath, terrace, and views over lush gardens. The owners, Tom and Sheda are welcoming and kind, lending bikes, spices, and phone if needed. They even collect you from the train station at Castres!

The voie vert permits easy cycling access to Castres (10km & Goya Museum) or Lautrec (5kms and Cafe Plum where literature, wine, courtyards and sparky staff make for a great afternoon). There are rambles through poppy-dotted wheat fields to ripe cherry trees and ponds. Close to Albi (Toulouse Lautrec).

The Rossignol gite is the two bedroom one, and it is chic without being fussy, wonderfully spacious, relatively private (the balcony is linked closely to the other gite) and very well-appointed. Tom renovated it all by his own efforts

There is a slight rumble of farm machinery noticeable at night, but the place is otherwise calm and tranquil. Really great value, and if you have a car - gives great access to Carcassone and Mont Segur. Just bliss.
