Ambialet
Ambialet

The landscape of the Tarn is Mediterranean in character. The beautiful pink city of Albi (UNESCO World Heritage) nestles on the River Tarn's banks, dominated by its magnificent cathedral whose fortifications are testimony to more turbulent times during which Albi and surrounding settlements such as Ambialet were attacked first as part of the crusades to suppress the Cathar heresy and later in the Wars of Religion. As you follow the course of the river Eastwards on wooded hills and along mellow stone-work villages in Tarn Valley, you discover the valley unspoiled and full of cultural interest.

Staying in very comfortable hotels, you will discover the distinctive, rich cuisine of the region, and its excellent wines, such as the flinty Gaillac whites.
