Cordes-sur-Ciel lodge description

The Lodge has recently been extended with a spacious second bedroom in addition to the beautiful four poster bedroom. The Lodge is on the ground floor and opens directly onto the inner courtyard through to the pool and gardens.

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 Lodge has direct access to the Terrace and new fenced pool. 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 and locally in specialist shops and ateliers.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My life was a journey, each step a thunderbolt, a crush and always, my passion went to life, to new experiences, to people also, chiefly. And my kids (the last ones are 10 and 11). Alter the water (I lived 10 years on a river boat, and 7 on a front beach, 'La Gaudane' in the middle level mountains is, with these height trees, the last one of this steps.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cordes-sur-Ciel:
                  'La Gaudane', a nice and an enjoying experience. It is very big and so spacious, than I can share it and share all the happiness that this old industrial plant of embroidery (1881), give now transformed in self catering houses, offering exotic and unexpected visions. Every body can appreciate here, time, arts, good wine, food, sport and sun. You understand that I have a lot of thought to share to do your stay, a very pleasant stay.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  The style of the apartment which is like a small house, with it's own entrance and is very near from the pool (nice when there are small children). The garden in which one can be isolated, and also meet other people from around the world, around a bbq. At the end, at less than 30 miles, a number of activities, visits, feasts and festivals, so important, that no one is able to practice all, in one month.
