I wholeheartedly recommend a stay here for anyone looking for something different, out of the way of today's bustling lives or tourism's too formatted answer to our need for a break. There is, in fact, wifi that works quite well so you can stay in touch if you need to, but you may find yourself nodding off in the afternoon instead of checking e-mails---and so much the better.
This is a wonderful house at a bend in a river... you have the river down below on three sides of the house. The furniture and photos are all from the family that has owned the house for some time. You feel immediately at home here and the quirks of any such a house are nothing compared to the perfectly placed chair on the front porch for the noon sun or the thick wooden table in the dining room or the views out of the many windows. Come here for a break from speed and modernity but know that you're going to have to go at a different pace.
Vabre is a 10-minute walk away and has a pharmacy, two small groceries, two butcher shops and a restaurant and bar. Nothing fancy but everything you need--more or less. The house is quiet and you sleep well here. We had an excellent time, felt very rested and even stayed longer than expected. Nearby are the stunning cathedral of Albi, the Sidobre rock formations and well, not much else. But that's kind of the point, take a break from sightseeing and a traveler's obligations and just be for a moment. You may have a hard time leaving.
