Review from a stay "The apartment is very generously sized, ideally suited for a (young/mature) couple. The attention to detail is far beyond what you'd expect in a holiday rental, in terms of facilities it has everything.
The location is excellent, you are in the heart of Albi, restaurants, markets, shops, etc it's all within a very easy walk. "
