Sojourn in the Cepages
We spent a lovely week in this charming house. The photos do not do the rooms justice. They are all very comfortable and spacious. It is most convenient to have your very own private vignoble at your disposal! And our children of all ages fell in love with the sheep. Diane and Philippe are kind and gracious hosts.
Beautiful House. Gracious Hosts
The house is beautiful and supplied with all you need. Super comfy beds and great working showers. We cooked and ate in every night and the kitchen was very well equipped.
My only negative comment would be that the stunning pool is shared with the owners and their children. It is situated next to their house. It was absolutely not a problem for us and the family were very discreet. They tended to use the pool in the early evening. We were 7 friends there to sunbathe and swim... and we did!
However there were only two sun beds, some chairs and a large bean bag, we had to mix and match.
The house is situated in their vineyard and Diane (the owners daughter) offered us wine tasting which was very interesting.
We had a truly enjoyable stay
For our parents big birthdays this year, myself, Siblings and partners booked this house for a long weekend. I was so delighted on arrival at how the house and surrounding area exceeded my expectations. The house itself is absolutely stunning, very clean and well equipped. The pool was brilliant with an incredible view over the vineyard. The lovely owners live in their house a few metres away so are on hand if you need anything but just they just leave you to it otherwise. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and would defiantly come back. Would highly reccommend this house.
Wow thank you Kayleight, I wish we could share more time together next time, for harvest?
The house was very clean after your week end which I appreciate too.
Wish you and family a nice summer time.
Exploring Wine Culture/Connecting with the REAL France
This home on the property of the Chateau La Colombiere, made us feel like we were living a more authentic version of the french experience. Good/newly renovated bathrooms/and lovely bedrooms with huge beams in the ceiling made it a joy to wake up. The kitchen was rustic, but with new appliances and well equipped. Our host, Diane Cauvin and her husband were truly committed to making our stay enjoyable. She speaks excellent english and gave all manner of info on the places of interest, where to shop, where to drive, and shared her family's property with us as if she had known us for many years. The family is passionate about their wine and the process of Bio Dynamically growing & harvesting it. She made time for us to have many hours of private conversations about the wine tradition on their winery and in the area. Being able to buy some of the best wine I have ever tasted right from their storage facility about any time we needed it was unique, although we never felt the slightest pressure to purchase anything. Being 15 minutes from any shops, you absolutely need a car to get around in this area. Albi and Toulouse are close, and we enjoyed those cities on day trips. Beware of the tradition the french have of not serving any substantial meals in restaurants between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. (!!) with few exceptions. We didn't want to drive after dark in an unfamiliar area, so eating out after 7 was eliminated, and eating before dark was hard because nothing was open after 2 p.m. Be prepared to mostly cook your own meals. Shops in Fronton have most everything you will need. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and I think you will too.
Many thanks to you all. It was a pleasure to meet you, our first hosts from Norway!
Sehr sauberes und schönes Objekt
Sehr schönes sauberes Anwesen, ruhig gelegen, geräumige und schön eingerichtete große Zimmer, alle Geräte in der Küche funktionsfähig und sauber, sehr gute Kalt - und Warmwasserversorgung ohne Druckverlust, sauberer Pool, ausreichend eigene Pkw - Stellplätze.

Superbe séjour dans une très belle maison
Nous avons passé une très belle semaine en famile avec grands parents et cousins. La maison est pleine de charme, meublée avec goût et très bien équipée. Elle se prête parfaitement à ces réunions grâce aux nombreuses chambres et salles de bain. L'environnement est également magnifique et de nombreuses découvertes et activités sont à portée de main.
