“Hospitality Plus Plus”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

My husband & I stayed at Clos de Lacalm earlier this month for 3 days. We arrived late in the afternoon feeling hot and tired after a long day sightseeing and driving. Right from the moment we were greeted warmly by Kirk and shown to our beautiful room by Sally, did we feel comfortable and welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, they were perfect but unobtrusive hosts. Dinner on two nights was at a local restaurant in the neighbouring village as recommended by Sally and on both occasions, the meal was superb. Breakfasts were a treat in the dining room and being unfamiliar with the local area, Sally went above and beyond to assist us with suggestions and clear driving instructions for the day. We would not hesitate to recommend this b & b.

We stayed for 3 nights in the most beautiful and tranquil surroundings. We were welcomed by our hosts Sally and Kirk, who were most helpful in every way - gave us maps of the area, advised on restaurants, and places to visit. As it was the end of our trip and we were travel weary, their welcoming pool and loungers were just what we needed. They even provided a picnic tray for us under the trees, when we were too tired to seek out a restaurant.
The bedroom was beautiful - pure cotton linen. We had our own lounge with TV. Sally served us a delightful breakfast each morning with fresh fruit and yogurt, and the most
delicious croissants. Highly recommended in every way.

This is a very luxurious B&B. It is superb. We arrived later than planned and we just could not do the facilities offered justice. Swim before dinner and/or boule court, walk around the area. Kirk and Sally are fantastic people and made us very feel very welcome. Super bedroom, fresh looking and great style. Excellent soft beds and lovely jack and jill bathroom for us and our daughter. A swim before breakfast starts the day! Breakfast outdoors is wonderful. Warm croissants, juice, jams, bread. The lovely quiet surroundings is as its title - calm. A relaxing place to be and such a shame we only had one day of this great hospitality. Would certainly consider a return visit if we are in the Tarn region again.

After a period of closure due to illness, I was delighted to discover this superb B&B is back in business.
Perfectly situated in the "Golden Triangle" of the Tarn between Albi, Cordes sur Ciel & Galliac, surrounded by vineyards with views of the Pyrenees this elegant house is without doubt the very best B&B I have found in France.
Superb bedrooms with linen sheets; quality bathrooms with lovely fluffy white towels; a swimming pool; a boule court; wifi; your own front door; your own sitting room; lovely walks from the house; excellent breakfasts served in their very "grown up" family dining room; and so quiet (just the call of the occasional nightjar) it is beyond any B&B I have ever visited before.
In conversation with our hosts I discovered they both worked at the very top end on the UK hotel industry, hence the superb attention to detail and kind hospitality.
Cheap it is not, but it is worth every penny (euro)

To call this iust a B&B is to do it an injustice - it is by far and away more luxurious, cleaner, better appointed and more welcoming than most, so called, luxury hotels.
Huge bed with heavenly bed linen, superb en suite bathroom with huge fluffy towels, your own private sitting room downstair with satellite TV; i-pod dock and wi-fi - your own front door - even your own downstairs loo + a swimming pool to use with a view of the pyrenees.
And super hosts, Kirk & Sally Ritchie could not have been kinder, more helpful or more welcoming to their lovely home.
We hated to leave and will CERTAINLY return.
