You can laze by the pool, sleep in, visit the famous Jardins des Paradis next door or just saunter round the 1222 fortress city. Or perhaps a little snooker, pool, table tennis or petanque or barbequeat La Gaudane. But, if you feel a touch more active there are mouth-watering markets all around, cafes and restaurants galore, and over 50 registered arts and crafts studios in Cordes.

The place is ideal for children - a fenced pool, playhouse, masses of toys & games and two big water parks close at hand.

There are also over 200 museums in the Tarn, including the Lautrec museum in Albi, the artist’s home town. Cordes is surrounded by vineyards and we can guide you round the best for tastings and lunch. There are medieval and music festivals at Cordes and elsewhere.

Nearby there are other festivals every week from Easter to October.

For the truly active there’s golf at any of several superb courses, cycling, tennis (La Gaudane have a complimentary stock of golf clubs, racquets and bikes), canoeing down the spectacular Aveyron Gorge, hiking, horse-riding, caving, fishing, swimming at two big waterparks or cruising down the Tarn. And more. Days to remember!

We had a fantastic holiday. It was paradise for the children! Swimming every day, canoeing down the river, playing snooker etc … they didn’t want to go home! Loved Cordes – great walks up to the top – super restaurants. Looking forward to visiting again and enjoying the spectacular views from your windows!

We have had a fantastic holiday …. Canoeing … climbing Najac castle, swimming in the lake and, of course, the pool. What more could you ask for?
