For 400 years the chateau was in the one family of winemakers. Now it is the warm and inviting home of Murray and Jan, your well travelled hosts. Tastefully furnished bedrooms are full of light with high quality linen on very comfortable king-sized beds. You can relax in the secluded leafy garden or beside the pool or perhaps sink into a deep sofa in the guest lounge and take advantage of of the extensive library to catch up on your reading. The village has a good restaurant within close walking distance of the chateau. You are in the heart of the Gaillac wine region with the delightful town of Albi and the spectacular hilltop village of Cordes Sur Ceil both nearby.
Located on the first floor, the Avalon room overlooks the garden and pool with the steeple of the village church providing a most attractive backdrop. The room is furnished with a king-sized bed with high quality bed linen and a well appointed and attractively furnished bathroom is attached. The private guest lounge is also located on this floor.
The Newport room is located on the second floor with the steeple of the village church providing a very attractive backdrop to the pool and garden. The room has a king-sized bed with high quality linen and there is a large attached bathroom very attractively decorated with warm stone tiles. On this floor there is also a twin bedroom which can be made available to guests in the Newport room who may require additional accommodation. Telephone and Internet access is available to guests in the guest lounge.

We stayed at Chateau Cestayrols last year, not long after it had opened as a B&B, and enjoyed it so much we returned for another stay this year. It is an absolutely beautiful property - the photos do not really do it justice. It is situated in a small village surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers in a particularly attractive and interesting part of France. We were given the most wonderful welcome by Australian hosts Jan and Murray, with drinks and snacks around the pool. And this was continued with helpful advice as to what to see and do during our stay. The bedrooms and the lounge are most tastefully furnished and so comfortable! We also enjoyed having our own refrigerator (the wine is so good in this region!) and tea and coffee facilities. This is without doubt one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed at and we cannot recommend it highly enough.

We spent a wonderful two days during summer in this light filled and beautifully appointed chateau. The rooms were large and charmingly furnished and everything spotless. The outlook over the very pretty gardens and swimming pool was delightful, quiet and relaxing. Our hosts Jan and Murray were warm and welcoming and happy to inform us about this beautiful part of France. Would love to stay again..

We are Australians who moved from Australia to this lovely part of south west France six years ago. We get great pleasure from living in and working on our charming old property and in exploring this very interesting and attractive part of South-West France.
