Super appartement. Très bon accueil. L'appartement est vraiment très très bien situé et le parking est vraiment un plus.
what a FABULOUS find. The location of this apartment is ideal! Julie and Laurent were the perfect hosts, even with our very late arrival, they were there to greet us with smiles and a bottle of wine. The apartment was tastefully prepared with all the little details tended to. Julie even had activities for our daughter. This is a must, if you stay in Albi, walking distance to everything, all while being very quiet. I can't say enough about these hosts and their apartment.
Location is great. Apartment is located inside old city just next to cathedral and city market. It is very well equipped - kitchen and shower much better then most apartments we rented before. It is also very convenient parking not far away form the property. Squeaky floors just added to the experience.
It was not easy to get our bags on the 3-rd floor on pretty narrow staircase, but we were warned :)
On downside we were surprised to learned about 40 euros cleaning fee. I thought that airbnb.com has no hidden fee policy.
Teníamos que asistir a un congreso en Albi y ha sido una grata sorpresa disfrutar de este estupendo y céntrico apartamento, rehabilatado en un edificio del s. XVIII. Lo hemos infrautilizado ya que hemos pasado todo el tiempo de trabajo, pero tiene todo lo necesario para que una familia o un grupo de 4 o 5 personas pasen unos días estupendos en Albi a un precio inmejorable.
Genial Laurent, que nos enseñó la vivienda y nos explicó cómo funcionaba todo. Además nos dejó una botella de vino y unos bombones como bienvenida. Gracias!
Lovely flat with many amenities. Very clean and tastefully furnished...a delight! Our hosts were even kind enough to pick us up at the train station and take us back to the train after our wonderful stay in Albi. They gave us many useful details about Albi.
The accomodation was fabulous, right in the middle of the city, really comfortable with lots of little extra touches which made it really special. Julie & Laurent were amazing, because we had problems parking our vehicle they offered parking space at their home and then entertained us. They were just amazing and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good stay. Albi was stunning, a fab couple of days on a busy trip through France, highly recommended, would definitely go back.
We had a very pleasant stay. The apartment is very comfortable and we would recommend it.
