On arriving at Le Castelet your heart lifts with the beauty of the building and the surroundings; and once inside you cant help but smile even more. In total 24 family members stayed for a week in the main residence and the gites. Eric and Suzy were our fantastic hosts who have created unique bedrooms/suites, a relaxing lounge and billiard room. Most days we sunbathed by the pool, played table tennis and boules and walked through the grounds. The nearby towns such as Castres and Albi - both of which had numerous restaurants and places of interest to see - are well worth a visit. I would recommed you have transport as taxis are expensive.
Suzy cooked us a very tasty evening meal, well worth the 25 euros; and each morning provided breakfast which was by far the best 'continental' we have had and plenty of it. Everything was super fresh and Suzy makes all the jams/chutneys herself from the produce she grows. The extra touches, such as allowing us to use the kitchen to make lunch and Eric taking us into Castres by car, were all very much appreciated. This is a special place which we highly recommend. We had a great time.
