Good Hotel Guide Review
In a quiet residential area, this 1930s maison de maitre has been carefully restored by English owners, Peter Friend and Mark Barber, who run it as a luxury chambres d’hôtes with dinners. Set in a private walled garden with a swimming pool, it has five well-equipped guest bedrooms. There is a lounge with board games a quiet lounge for reading, a library, a dining room with a Louis XIV fireplace and a spa. Local produce appears on the dinner menus; for breakfast bread from a local baker accompanies cereals, fresh fruits, cheese, ham and a much else. The acceuil is ‘charmant’, says Michelin. Smoking is not allowed, even in the grounds. Mazamet is a traditional market town at the foot of the Montagne Noire mountain range in south-west France. Albi, Carcassonne, and the Canal du Midi are nearby.
