We have just spent another idyllic time in marvellous Le Muret - a wonderful old farm house, beautifully restored, set in the rolling landscapes of this beautiful part of France with superb views over the surrounding countryside. The swimming pool is ideal. And Le Muret is well located for lovely hamlets and towns as well as such interesting places as Albi and Rodez, with all their museums and places of interest. The food in the region is of course superb and there are many wonderful restaurants dotted around the area. This time we spent a month there and at the end we still wanted more.
Good for the soul 🙏🏻
Le Muret is an absolute gem. It really enables you to switch off & recharge. Breath taking View of the valley - incredible light - perfect for painting.
A very special location. Great pool -perfect size. Indoor table tennis a hit with the kids also a good escape from the sun. Le Muret is very old, upstairs reflects this more than downstairs. Overall a comfortable home. We loved watching the Swallows & Swifts swoop over the pool taking a drink on the wing . The garden is a hive of activity with bees, butterflies & lizards. At night the bats are busy flitting about. It’s glorious!
Marvellous Le Muret
We had a wonderful time at Le Muret and will return. With its magnificent views over sweeping landscapes of valleys and hills in deepest rural France it constantly amazes. It's a wonderfully restored old and capacious farm house set in ample grounds and with countryside around guaranteeing complete peace. It is very comfortable with excellent modern facilities and a super swimming pool. Nearby are small villages and towns with good restaurants and places selling local products. The area is steeped in Cathar history and beautiful historic buildings. All in all it is much much more than a real treat.
Stunning setting but a few issues with the house
The farmhouse has been beautifully and sympathetically restored by the owner in a simple, rustic style. It is set within generous gardens and benefits from spectacular views. We stayed at the house for two weeks and had an enjoyable time exploring the surrounding area. You will not be disturbed if you stay here, the only sounds you can hear are the occasional bark from the neighbouring farmer's dogs. There is no traffic, or light pollution here, it is so peaceful.
We unfortunately had a few issues with the house, which I feel should be mentioned before any other guests decide to stay. It generally was not very clean, we spent a considerable time cleaning when we arrived so that we would feel comfortable. Also, a lot of the lamps / lighting did not work, one of the bedrooms did not have any light, we had to use a torch. The owner explained there is a bit of a teething issue with management so I am sure this will all be resolved for the next guests.
Overall it really was a very beautiful setting and stunning location but we will not be returning to the house. The owner kindly refunded our cleaning charge however upon check out tried to charge us for the pool hoover's wheel falling off! We did not touch the hoover as per the owner's instructions (despite it taking up half of the pool at times). Part of the wheel was missing which is why it wouldn't stay on and had nothing to do with being tampered with. This left such a bad feeling as we had already had a bad experience with the cleanliness and maintenance and we had taken great care to look after the house and even washed some of the sheets before we left!
We did have a great stay despite the above issues, the location and setting are wonderful. I am very sure the house will be immaculate for the next guests, we were just unlucky I suppose. Also, the owner trying to grab our security deposit didn't leave us with a very nice feeling.
These guests said nothing to me about cleanliness until 10 days into a 2 week stay! If it really had been not clean enough, I'm sure they would have said immediately and I would have resolved it. Nor did I try and charge them for the robot. As a matter of fact it had been broken during their stay and again they failed to mention it. They also left the house in a state on their departure
Beautiful house in secluded rural location
We stayed here for a week at the end of July. Comfortable, elegant house with the feel of a family home. Suited all four generations of our family from 83 year-old to 11 month-old. Great pool and grounds. Very well equipped. Housekeeper Janine very helpful. Short drive to shops/restaurants in Cordes Sur Ciel and 10 minute drive or 40 minute walk to excellent restaurant Lou Paidol in Salles. Highly recommend and plan to return
So pleased your family enjoyed our house. Look forward to welcoming you back!
Really lovely place - we had a wonderful time
Lovely property, very nicely restored. Beautiful view and surroundings. We would love to return sometime.
Our nearest town is Cordes-sur-Ciel (10 minutes) and we are 30 minutes from Najac and St Antonin-Noble-Val. These are fascinating medieval bastide towns, full of interest and activities. Albi, with its cathedral, Toulouse-Lautrec museum, restaurants, etc. is about 20 minutes away, and we are well placed for trips to many other bastide towns and the Gaillac vineyards. This is an area where villages tend to be ancient medieval settlements and pigeonniérs are found dotted about the fields.
Cordes was voted one of the best villages in France and has a variety of restaurants, several hotels, a wonderful patisserie, butchers, banks, ironmongers, toyshop, garages and a newspaper and bookshop. English newspapers are generally on sale the day after publication. In the summer months there is also a variety of specialist food/wine shops and art and local craft shops. There is a very attractive and useful market on Saturday mornings. There are also several interesting museums and the renowned 'Jardin des Paradis' gardens.
