Located in the heart of Albi's 13th century episcopal city, my parents' house has two main bedrooms, one of which looks onto the Tarn river. It easily sleeps 4, six with some accommodation. You can walk to the city's many attractions. Many food options within walking distance from 3-stars restaurants to a weekly farmers' market and the traditional covered market open every day. Many activities within easy driving distance, including the up-and-coming Gaillac wine region.

What makes this House unique
I am pretty knowledgeable about the city's history and its main attractions. I can point out the best eateries in town and activities for the whole family within driving distance. Being a native French speaker, I can assist guests when language is an issue. I will consider babysitting so parents can treat themselves to a romantic dinner or outing.

Ideally situated and friendly owner
This two bedroom apartment is located in the heart of old town Albi, just a couple of blocks from the Lautrec Museum ( which is fabulous), the Cathedral St. Cecile, and the wonderful covered market. Public parking is also close by. Catherine, our hostess was extremely gracious and helpful. Carrying our bags up three flights of stairs and welcoming us with a bottle of wine and some wonderful olives. When we lost our hot water one evening, she apologized and treated us to croissants and pain au raisin (to die for) the next morning. Catherine resides in California when she is not in Albi, so there were no language problems for us Americans.
Beautiful, comfortable and convenient
I really loved my stay here and will stay here again if I have the good fortune to return to Albi. Catherine's English is excellent, she was readily available when help or info was needed. Everything I needed was there and there was even an international adapter plug so I could charge my laptop. The farmers market was wonderful and so was the covered market nearby. It really is only steps from the cathedral and Toulouse Lautrec museum. Stay at least two days if you can, one is not enough for all Albi has to offer.
Wonderful house in a great location, great views, right at the center of town...yet quiet. Extremely kind and helpful hostess.
.Albi is very beautiful, would go back and stay at the same place.
June 21st is la Fete de la Musique throughout France. Albi always goes all out and there are performances all through the town. In July Pause Guitare is a series of concerts with internationally renowned artists (Elton John and Joan Baez in 2016). July 14th, France's Independance Day, is also a spectacular affair with fireworks and dancing in the street.
