From "La Terrasse de Lautrec" there are splendid views of the surrounding hills and countryside. The French-style gardens and the old pond behind the house were built on the former town ramparts. More recently, a delightful swimming pool has been discreetly added. The lovely winding streets of the old town, with their half-timbered buildings and their steep facades, are a great place to stroll through one of the "Most Beautiful Villages in France". This old seventeenth-century house is situated on the main square of the village and has pastel blue shutters and a fortified front door. Inside it is cool, as in all old buildings. From the entrance hall with its pretty murals, a large staircase leads up to the guest rooms and suite. The three guest rooms overlook the square and the suite overlooks the gardens. There is also a lovely guests' lounge with beautiful nineteenth-century wallpaper, which is an ideal spot for reading or listening to music or simply enjoying the peace and quiet. Each morning, breakfast is served at small tables on the terrace or at the big table in the dining room, depending on the weather. On weekday evenings, Dominique can prepare Mediterranean-style dinners in the summer and dinners of local specialities in the winter, all accompanied by local wines selected by Philippe. A beautiful place, and an excellent base from which to explore a region rich in heritage of all kinds, where famous people including Toulouse-Lautrec, Lapérouse and Jean Jaurès lived.
