Set in the beautiful and largely undiscovered Vallée de Gijou this luxury tiny house is equipped to the very highest standards. All self catering facilities are available, yet as ex-restaurateurs the owners can provide breakfast, lunches/picnics and dinners on order. Nestled in the Haut Languedoc Park between the Southern French town of Castres (40 minutes) and world heritage site of Albi (45 minutes). The region is awash with places to visit and things to do.

The space
No expense has been spared in furnishing this tiny house to the standards of the most exclusive boutique hotel. The ancient bread oven building has been restored with care and respect, recycling and incorporating reclaimed materials where feasible. The bed is made from old beams and recovered planking as are the sills and the table top.
The toiletries are made by Graine de Pastel a regional company that produces beauty products made from woad.
For an added touch we provide homemade honey roasted mixed nuts, and a bottle of either our Elderflower syrup or Linden cordial made from flowers from the Valley. The hosts also bake biscotti biscuits to accompany the Nespresso machine and milk frother and tea making facilities - included are coffee pods, loose leaf Assam and a selection of herb teas.
installed are two satellite televisions with Amazon Prime and Netflix.
Be sure of a good nights sleep with the sprung and memory foam mattress combination and anti-allergy down effect duvet.
The shower has a large 90cm cabin with Grohe thermostatic shower and a heated towel rail.
If you are lucky enough to visit during the colder months an you can enjoy the Esse Bakeheart wood burning cooker and unlimited wood.

Guest access
Private entrance and use of the back garden.

Other things to note
The property is offered as self catering, but anything up to full catering can be offered. You can eat in the garden or in the colder months by the fire in the tiny house. As we try to source local produce and prepare from fresh, at least 12 hours notice would be appreciated. Special dietary requirements are not usually an issue.
Breakfast 10 euros per person. (baguette, pastries, homemade granola and yoghurt, local honey, fruit, juice and tea and coffee)
Lunch/picnic 12 euros per person.
Dinner 30 euros per person (3 courses with a specially selected glass of wine offered free with each course. Home made cordials offered as an alternative. Fourth course is an additional 8 euros)

Location

Lacaze, France

The Valley of Gijou is set in the Haut Languedoc Park, a region of outstanding natural beauty. The area is renowned for walking, cycling and fishing. Whilst a Little further afield you have the Rochers du Sidobre, the village of Lautrec with its ancient windmill, Woad dying and pink garlic. Why not combine a visit to the historic centre of Albi with its stunning brick built cathedral, museum of Toulouse Lautrec and a tasting of wines in the Gaillac appellation. Alternatively try the famous ham and charcuterie of Lacaune and then on to visit the cheese caves of the world renowned Roquefort. Remember to save a day to laze around in the garden and enjoy the view or in winter snuggle up under a blanket and toast your toes in front of the wood burning stove.
