Wine Tours & Tasting


The Manoir is in the heart of Gaillac's winemaking area and numerous excellent wineries are within easy reach. We'd be happy to recommend some.   

UNESCO City, Albi

Just 20 minutes away is the UNESCO World Heritage Centre of Albi with its must visit Cathédrale Sainte-Cécile, cobbled shopping streets, Toulouse-Lautrec museum, food hall and a number of good places to eat and drink

Hilltop villages and bastides towns
If picturesque perched villages, bastide towns and traditional markets are your passion then you could spend days visiting the many surrounding towns and villages all within easy driving distance including the stunning 12th century Cordes-sur-Ciel just 12 kms away 

Join the French in their national sport on quiet well maintained roads. The Tour de France often passes nearby. 



For many a perfect day out includes strolling through one of the many local food & antiques markets. A "must do" is the Sunday morning market in St. Antonin Noble Val - sit in the market square with a coffee or rosé and people watch
