My Booking


A house of charm and character: In 2018, we fell in love with the former sub-prefecture of the Tarn, in the historic heart of Lavaur, and decided to bring it back to life through a high-end accommodation and restaurant project. We have restored and embellished the house to offer 6 elegant and spacious rooms from 85€/d, in a restful and pleasant setting in the heart of the town. This work was carried out with the financial support of the Occitania region. In the heart of Lavaur, in the land of Cocagne, we open the doors of our guest house, a beautiful 19th century residence. This private mansion was built in 1830 by Guillaume Daguilhon Pujol, then sub-prefect, to house the sub-prefecture which remained there until the 1920s. The house is set in an enclosed garden where a superb 400 year old cedar tree reigns supreme. You will be able to rest in its beneficent shade, have breakfast by the pool or read a book in the coolness of our patios, in complete privacy. Forget the car! The old town, the shops, everything is within walking distance, including the famous Saturday morning market. Moreover, the guest house is ideally located at an equal distance from Albi, Toulouse and Castres. We are less than 45 minutes by car or train from these major and unmissable sites in the Occitan region. We are only 1 hour from the medieval city of Carcassonne, a must see when visiting the region. Holidays and disability: Our house has the Tourism and Disability label. We are keen to enable people with reduced mobility to stay in a charming house with their companions. We have put at their disposal 2 rooms equipped with a kitchene.

We are very eager to give the possibility to people with limited mobility to stay in a charming house with the people travelling with them. We therefore have at their disposal, on the ground floor, 2 rooms equipped with a kitchenette. The restaurant and all of the common areas are accessible to wheelchairs. Pierre Birolini, our 26-year-old chef, has already a rich culinary experience. He is the 3rd generation cook of his family and likes travels and good food. He has already been around in Spain, Corsica and the Basque Country. He brought back a cuisine with different influences, mixing traditional Basque, Corsican and Occitan dishes with a hint of Nordic flavours (home-smoked products) plus a hint of modernity.
