Villefranche de Rouergue

 Villefranche (VdR) is a bastide town that was founded in 1252 by the Count of Toulouse, Alphonse de Poitiers. The central square is exceptional and with the Place Notre-Dame is an almost perfect bastide town centre.  The Catherdral was built over two centuries, starting in 1260.

VdR has unique French boutiques and cafés throughout its cobblestone streets. The principal church, Notre-Dame, was finalized in 1581 and resembles the historic Gothic architecture of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.   The best thing that Villefranche has to offer is on Market Day.   The largest market in the region is on Thursday morning throughout the year.  

Cordes sur Ciel

This well preserved little town sits high on a hilltop in southern France in the Tarn, which forms part of the Midi-Pyrénées. The bastide town of Cordes sur Ciel is is 40kms from the Auberge.  It is also only 25kms from both Gaillac and its surrounding amazing vineyards, and from the cathedral town of Albi.  

For those who enjoy hiking, Cordes offers a beautiful aerial view of the city and the fields in which it surrounds. Along the hike, there are many fantastic boutiques which sell range of goods from unique pottery and gourmand foods to art and handcrafted knifes. At the top of the city, you can reward yourself with a refreshing glass of wine and a much deserved meal at the variety of restaurants available. For those who do not wish to walk up but want to experience the view, there is a shuttle.

this area lends itself to outdoor living for much of the year and visitors often return time and time again, sometimes going on to buy a property as a holiday or permanent home. You will never be short of something to do when you visit Cordes sur Ciel, as there is so much to explore and enjoy here every day.
