Villa overview

Reminiscent of Tuscany, the fertile fields of the Tarn valley have been tended by the Vignerons of Gaillac with a loving care.
Enjoying views over the neighbouring vineyards, this was once the centre of wine making in this domain.

Sitting on the banks of the river la Tarn, this villa enjoys easy access to the rolling countryside, with the facilities of the town of Gaillac just four minutes away.
This proximity to the city offers a number of popular attractions.

This enchanting home is bright and warm, with charming decorations, situated in the heart of one of the oldest wine growing regions.

We are delighted to announce that all the vineyards, orchards and fields adjoining the Château are now grown organically.

The Château boasts 600 square meters of living space with10 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms (including a ground floor bedroom with its own wet room, possibly ideal for older guests), a large salon-ballroom/TV room and dining room. As a building designed for hospitality, Château Gaillac benefits from high ceilings providing a pleasant coolness in summer; whilst tall windows allow for plenty of natural light to create a bright atmosphere.

Fully centrally heated and in an exceptionally high state of repair, the Château is decorated in delicately coloured traditional lime-wash, complementing its ornamental plasterwork and finely carved joinery; all tastefully furnished in traditional southern French Baroque style. Three of the bedrooms have air-conditioning. Rooms are arranged in such a way that dining “en famille” is possible both in the cool of the Château heart or on the upper-terrace depending on the time of day or temperature.

The “manoir” style kitchen with high vaulted ceiling is pleasant and light allowing food to be easily served through double doors either to the Château dining area or directly to the terrace; it also overlooks the swimming pool which can be useful  when youngsters may be swimming.

Furthermore, there is a newly fabricates "art nouveau" child-gate dividing the pool from the dining terrace.

Facilities inside include a washing machine, dryer, two dishwashers, large gas range, 2 microwaves, 2 Senseo coffee machines and large family fridge. A large private walled Romanesque sun-terrace with mosaic pool is accessed down ornamental steps from the rear terraces. Sun-loungers chairs and tables are situated around the pool and barbecue area close by. The pool (size: 11x5m/ depth: 1.5m) has a safety gate, pool toys are provided.

There are bikes and children's bikes available too.

Château Gaillac rests on the edge of a hamlet, 2 miles away from the small town of Gaillac and halfway between the historic cathedral cities of Albi and Toulouse with easy access to the Autoroute. There is also a train station in Gaillac with a good railway services. 

The surrounding region of Gaillac is both scenic and vibrant. Whether you’re wine tasting around the local vineyards, either exploring the hill top citadels of Cordes-sur-ciel and Bastides des Albigois or visiting one of the 5 “plus beaux villages de France”  like Castelnau de Montmirail, Puycelsi,  Bruniquel, Lautrec, Monesties all located less than 30mn away, there’s plenty to see and do.
The actual town of Gaillac is but a short cycle away. Once there you’ll find a mix of beautiful architecture from many periods, and a real old world charm. Make sure to drop by the Musee des Beaux-Arts, and leave plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of the adjoining French gardens and park.

Gaillac is abundant  in heritage within  its winding streets and tree lined esplanades, but also benefits from a modern shopping centre open-market and restaurants to suit all tastes. There are  several markets, the Friday market is the biggest.

The UNESCO world heritage city of Albi lies just 20 minutes from the Château, and boasts Europe’s largest brick building; the magnificent Cathedral of Albi – a masterpiece of Southern Gothic architecture, and a must see in the region. The Toulouse-Lautrec museum recently refurbished is well worth a visit. Children may also like to pay a visit to the water park “Atlantis” located a few miles away.

Out in the peaceful surroundings of Château Gaillac it is easy to forget that you’re only a short way from Toulouse, a bustling twin university city. Fourth French city by its size, Toulouse is a hub of technology within Southern France. It even has its own space visitor centre, and yet it still maintains a simplicity and romanticism that is true to the region. Bisected by the River Garonne, it is often referred to as la Ville Rose (the Pink City) due to the attractive pink terracotta bricks that make up many of the historic structures in the city.
