“We only wish we could have stayed longer”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

Eric and Rachelle, the lovely Belgian couple who now run this excellent chambre d'hotes near Albi, made us so welcome. We could only stay one night, because they were full the following nights, and we could not sample their table d'hote, because they only do evening meals Friday through Monday. But knowing we were tired after a long cycle, (and they did offer to run us to a restaurant!) they actually ordered in pizza for themselves and us, which we ate together. Lovely spacious room, nice swimming pool, great breakfast, good communal facilities (eg use of fridge) very quiet and in lovely surroundings with stunning views. A very special place, and very good value. A bit of a climb to get there for cyclists!

Last summer we did a trip through France and we discovered a beauty near Albi.
The Chambres d'hotes Le Pignie, runned by a Belgian couple with a little daughter is a lovely place. Very calm, 15 minutes from the very beautifull city of Albi. The hospitality and the pleasent stay, made it fur us very very enjoyable.

Room Tip: the host will give you the best what they have, trust on them

As a group of six (more mature) "Aussies" we stayed at Le Pignie for several nights towards the end of April 2009. The four rooms we occupied were very spacious and very clean and our hosts, Phillippe and Christine were very nice people and very welcoming. Christine allowed us to use her kitchen to prepare a number of meals which we found very convenient. The breakfasts that Christine prepared for us in the mornings was a welcome change to that experienced at other B&B's we had stayed at on this (France) trip. On offer was eggs (boiled/fried/scambled/omelette), bacon and home cured prosciutto, cheese, freshly baked bread and croissants (plain or chocolate), fresh orange juice and lovely creamy yoghurt. (not all available on the same morning mind).

During our stay Phillippe generously allowed us to sample some of his cask wine (white and red) and later sold us a large cask of red at a very reasonable price for later consumption as we continued our journey.

On the day before we left Christine offered to do our laundry and on our return from day tripping we found the same had been laundered, ironed and folded ready for packing again. She offered to do this for no payment at all, but we made sure that a few extra euros were attached to our account for her generosity. Thankyou Christine ... such a gesture is very much appreciated when you are travelling!

The B&B is located in a rural area and is best accessed by private transport. It provides a tranquil setting and is located for reasonable access to such areas as Carcassonne, Albi, Cords-sur-Ciel etc.

If you are travelling independantly and are looking for a very nice B&B in this area I would say Phillippe and Christine's would be hard to pass bye. Good value and great hosts.

Accommodation at this B&B is in a converted dairy. Rooms are large, clean and well presented. A large common room, BBQ area, swimming pool and kitchen adds to the appeal. The hosts, Philippe and Christine, were extremely welcoming, full of knowledge of the local area, prepared a great breakfast and very generous (even completed our laundry for us and provided us with a generous quantity of red wine).
The downside is that the B&B would not be easily accessible without self drive transport.
The B&B is ideally located for sightseeing trips to Carcassonne, Albi, the route of the Bastides, the Millau bridge and Toulouse.
After a busy day sightseeing, it was great to stroll along the quiet rural roads in the area and sleep in a location void of traffic noise.
