The hotel is in South Western part of France, more specifically at Cuq Toulza city, located in the Tarn region. The city is about 200 kilometres from the border with Spain. When I arrived in town, I noticed a beautiful 18th-century church in the town.
A warm welcome awaits you from the hotel owners Philippe and Andonis - they have put a lot of heart and soul into this hotel. The hotel consists of 8 different rooms spread over 4 floors, among which you can enjoy beautiful interior design.
One of the biggest advantages of the place is that it is located on a hill that allows you to enjoy stunning views over the region's wavy soft hills. On a hot summer's day, take a swim in the pool or sit on one of the hotel's many chairs and benches in the well-groomed garden, which consists of colourful flowers, rustic stone stairs, fountains and waterfalls.
Order a delicious meal at Gourmand Restaurant, where Andonis is a cook. If the weather is good, diners have the opportunity to sit on the hotel's beautiful terrace and enjoy the impressive view while eating.
If you have a passion for food, you can reserve a space on Andonis' cooking course. Please note that the restaurant is open to external guests and it is not possible to book a table in the restaurant on Wednesdays.
Stay in Cuq Toulza and enjoy the quiet pace or spend your time exploring the area around the small town. You will find more castles within a radius of 10 km and within. 20 km you will find the Lac Saint Ferreol area, where you can go for a beautiful walk or cycling.
Experience the area's attractive villages such as Sorénze and Revel, which can be reached within 1 hour by car. Sail a ride on the Canal du Midi, an approx. 240 km long landed canal, which extends from Toulouse to the coastal town of Agde, where it flows into the Mediterranean Sea. The channel is on UNESCO's World Heritage List and is a popular tourist destination.
Experience its calm rhythm and take advantage of Pierre-Paul Riquet's beautiful work of art. Toulouse is the nearest big city, where you can enjoy everything from museums, theatres, monuments to nightclubs and shopping. If you have a passion for golf or horse riding, you can reach both within approximately 25 km away.
