Cordes Sur Ciel, 1885 Building - to Feel Completely Elsewhere


Home Description

The Owners apartment is vast, occupying an entire floor of 3.500 sqft. There is a master suite of double room, bathroom and W.C. There is then a massive salon with enough room for playing cards, watching TV or playing pool all at once, and beyond is the Guest Suite, with double room and twin room linked by the bathroom. There is a laundry room leading off the kitchen. No one is ever disappointed by the decor, space and quality of our apartments. There is access by the antique main stairs or one floor down by the courtyard stairs to the gardens and pool.

At first sight Cordes-sur-Ciel takes your breath away, La Gaudane is a superbly crafted golden stone building with its five floors clad in wisteria and trompette. It was designed and built in 1881 as an embroidery factory. Each apartment is outstanding with a unique personality of antique furniture and state of the art appliances.

It has all the advantages of the town with the quietness of being just off the busier beat. Set on the lower slopes of the 13th Century fortified town it is just 300 metres from bakers, butchers, bank, post office, supermarket, and patisserie. The Terrace is part shaded with magnificent panoramic views over the valley of the Cerou. Cordes is handy for an enchanting array of beautiful little antique villages and bastides perched on high or even a trip into the wild Aveyron or down to the blue Mediterranean through the Herault.

La Gaudane sits on the lower slopes of Cordes-sur-Ciel with its medieval houses, narrow lanes, and endless mazes of little stone alleys, steps, tunnels, and gardens. It takes ten minutes to walk up to the medieval city from La Gaudane to browse in the many shops selling handicrafts and delicious specialities of the Tarn. There are many restaurants and cafes to while the time.

Cordes-sur-Ciel is a very special town. It is impossible to be untouched by its charm or to leave it without warm and special memories. And last, but not least, you will find the last phases of the 19th Century embroidery heritage whose beautiful works are to be found at La Gaudane & locally, in specialist shops and ateliers.

Family reunions, celebrations, large groups. La Gaudane is ideal for big family parties such as we enjoy most years. Each branch can be accommodated in one of the five apartments with the vast Owners Apartment acting as mothershop. Ask about our special rates and facilities.

We can provide babysitting, airport transfers help with shopping and cooked meals to make your stay more restful.
