I've been nurse for 10 years. In 2015 I've decided to open a B&B in my hometown, Albi. Me, my husband and our 2 children will welcome you in our house, 5min walk from the Cathedrale.

Art, architecture and street life

Known for the artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, as well as its medieval architecture, Albi is 85 km north of Toulouse. Meander traffic-free streets in the old town, take a glass bottomed boat along the River Tarn, and introduce kids to art. Street life is the great appeal here: walking over old bridges, peering skywards at the Gothic half-timber buildings and soaking up the food and music.
