WALKS INTO CASTRESCastres is a picturesque town in the region of Occitanie, with a number of beautiful architectural surprises in store for you. Not least of which are the wonderful homes of the weavers, dyers and tanners built along the banks of the Agout on the Quai des Jacobins. Some of them even date back to the Middle Ages. The Episcopal See and the garden designed by André Le Nôtre, the Place Jean-Jaurès, and the walls of the 17th-century mansions are all also worth a visit. Castres is also home to a wonderful museum dedicated to Goya.
CORDES-SUR-CIELOnly 1 hour away from Castres is the lofty town of Cordes, where you’ll find one of the most unmissable sights that this wonderful region has to offer. Wandering through these cobbled streets, lined with an incredible array of Gothic buildings (from the 18th and 19th centuries) is a must. As is admiring the sculpture work decorating the pink-hued and shimmering grey Salles sandstone walls. Must-sees include the Maison du Grand-Fauconnier, which houses the Yves Brayer modern and contemporary art museum, and the Maison du Grand Veneur.
THE GREAT OUTDOORSThe hotel acts as an excellent base for excursions to the Sidobre, the Lacaune Mountains and the Black Mountain. The geological phenomenon of the Sidobre is an “island of granite”. The area contains around a hundred km² of unique landscape, the likes of which cannot be seen anywhere else in Europe: gigantic balls of stone, which almost seem as if they've been thrown by the hands of giants... Alongside the Haut Languedoc regional nature reserve, the Black Mountain is a well-preserved area of wild natural beauty. Its northern face is covered in dark forests of beeches, oaks, firs and spruces. The south side, towards the Lauragais and Minervois plains, is strewn with broom, scrubland, vines and olive trees.
