    About this property

    Château Gaillac is a late Napoleonic, belle époque style extravaganza of opulence, situated in the valley of the Tarn River between the historic Cathedral cities of Albi and Toulouse, with easy access to the Autoroute.
    The Vignerons of Gaillac have tended the fertile fields in the Tarn valley for the past millennium with loving care in a landscape of viridian, terracotta and ochre reminiscent of Tuscany. Once the centre of this vast wine making domain, Chateau Gaillac still produces its own label of award winning wine from neighbouring vineyards, of which guests receive a complimentary case upon arrival.
    Resplendent in its park-land arboretum setting of lofty Cedars, the château sits just back from the banks of the river la Tarn, and also enjoys access to the adjoining rolling countryside. All the while, the facilities and popular attractions of the historic market town of Gaillac are just ten minutes away.
    Bright, warm and charmingly decorated in traditional Lime-wash, Château Gaillac is an enchanting home away from home in one of France’s oldest wine growing regions.

    Château Gaillac rests on the edge of a small village, halfway between the historic Cathedral cities of Albi and Toulouse with easy access to the Autoroute.
    The surrounding region of Gaillac is both scenic and vibrant. Whether you’re wine tasting around the local vineyards, or exploring the hill top citadels of Cordes-sur-ciel and Bastides des Albigois, there’s plenty to see and do.
    The actual town of Gaillac is but a short cycle away, along the leafy banks of the river le Tarn. Once there you’ll find a mix of beautiful architecture from many periods, and a real old world charm. Make sure to drop by the Musee des Beaux-Arts, and leave plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of the adjoining French gardens and park.

    Gaillac is abundant  in heritage within  its winding streets and tree lined esplanades, but also benefits from a modern shopping centre open-market and restaurants to suit all tastes.
    The unesco world heritage city of Albi lies just 20 minutes from the Chateau, and boasts Europe’s largest brick building; the magnificent Cathedral of Albi – a masterpiece of Southern Gothic architecture, and a must see in the region.
    Out in the peaceful surroundings of Château Gaillac it is easy to forget that you’re only a short way from Toulouse, a bustling twin university city. As a hub of technology within Southern France, Toulouse even has its own space visitor centre, and yet it still maintains a simplicity and romanticism that is true to the region. Bisected by the River Garonne, it is often referred to as la Ville Rose (the Pink City) due to the attractive pink terracotta bricks that make up many of the historic structures in the city.

    "Great chateau, well equipped and in a beautiful wine region but just a 5 minute drive from the small town of Gaillac and a large supermarket/bakery."
    Rebecca ‐ 19 Aug 2018
    "We had a really great week, en famille at Chateau Gaillac. The house was beautiful with a great kitchen and very generous rooms. The host was there to meet us at the beginning and to see us off at the end. She and her team of helpers were very helpful"

    "Beautiful house, attentive, friendly and helpful owner. Very happy!"

    "We were a family of 14 from Denmark and Australia meeting for a week’s family reunion holiday and Chateau Gaillac more than met our expectations. We felt very spoilt. The chateau is absolutely beautiful and well kept. Built around 1860-70s it has so much character and the photos are a true representation of both the size of the rooms and the way they look. Beds were comfortable and there were 10 gorgeous large bedrooms most with 3 beds. 7 upstairs and 3 downstairs - and more than enough bathrooms and toilets. The lounge room, dining room and kitchen and upstairs foyer were also great for relaxation. Marie looked after us from the very beginning with a tour around the house. She was available to help with any issues. When she is away, there is a lady next door who comes to clean the pool and help with any issues or her son also came to fix the TV one day. Bed linen, plenty of bath towels and pool towels and toilet paper was all supplied to us for the week. There were even some spare swimmers in case needed. The pool was delightful and looks exactly like the photos. There were lots of pool toys for the kids and we left some too. The best part was the kitchen and the outdoor table. We had a young boy who couldn’t swim so it was important that we could see him in the pool while we dined. The kids were in the pool all night and we loved sitting at the outdoor table eating and enjoying a glass of wine watching the kids play in the pool. Marie even supplied some nice wine to start with. The house had 2 rooms with air conditioning the rest had fans. However, we closed the shutters during the hot days and opened them early in the morning and that kept the house cool. The location was great. However, we had such a good time at the chateau we only made it to Albi and Gaillac. We would recommend a trip to Albi to see the big red brick church - it is incredible. There are plenty of vineyards around too that offer daily wine tasting and we found some lovely local wines. The house has a number of bicycles of which 5 of them were in good condition and we went on a few tours through the vineyards. There is also a BBQ outdoor that we used a few times. All up we all felt the Chateau was perfect. We had such a lovely time and would strongly recommend this for any family or larger group gathering. There is plenty room for everyone to relax and enjoy."

    "We were a party of 13 adults and 6 children, 4 under 18ths old. We arrived early and although Marie and her staff were busy preparing they made us very welcome. The chateau is large and spacious. Very French, as we wanted, but with all modern conveniences and a large kitchen. The chateau was very clean the bathrooms nice, hairdryers are provided. It is located within a 30min walk along country roads of the outskirts of Gaillac, a town with many restaurants including one with a Michelin star. It is in the heart of wine country. Marie the owner was extremely helpful. Wine and fresh local produce was a nice welcome gift. The pool area was well above our expectations, the pool was cleaned regularly. We ate breakfast and our evening meal on the veranda overlooking the pool, fantastic. Bikes were available which we used. We didn't hire cars, but would advise that people do if they want more than relaxing by the pool. Taxi to the town is quite expensive considering the distance (4 miles max for £12). Chateau to Airport 250.00 Euros thanks to Marie who struck a bargain on our behalf. The chateau enables you to have a BBQ with plastic plates or a 5 course diner with china on a long banquet table under a large chandelier. We very much enjoyed our stay and the family were disappointed that they were to return home. We would recommend that to enhance the stay of people at the chateau the bathroom towels are upgraded. We thank Marie and the staff for our stay at Chateau Gaillac"

    "Chateau Gaillac is a fantastic house and really surpassed our expectations. The house and its grounds are beautiful with great facilities and everything you can need including a wonderful pool. The location is also superb, only 45 minutes from Toulouse Airport, 5 minutes to the closest shop and surrounded by Beautiful towns and vineyards. I would highly recommend staying there."

    "Chateau Gaillac is as spectacular as it looks in the photos. Huge elegant building with large rooms and high ceilings. Quiet and peaceful location and we spent many a happy hour on the terrace outside the kitchen eating and drinking superb local produce. The pool area also works well. The hosts (Marie and Neil) are charming and hospitable. When they are in France they live in an adjacent building and are always available to support and help with anything you need but are also discrete and do not interfere with your holiday. We had a splendid three weeks of glorious weather with our friends and family"

    "Chateau Gaillac is set in a beautiful countryside, but close enough to supermarkets (10/15 min drive) to still be convenient. The bedrooms are enormous, the grounds substantial and the swimming pool area is immaculately kept. Neil and Marie were the perfect hosts, kindly organising a chef to cook for us for a few nights. The local wine proved delicious - there are many vineyards in the surrounding area for you to find your favourite. Our group of 16 had rented various houses similar to Chateau Gaillac in the past, and the consensus view was that it was the best of the lot. Thank you Neil & Marie!"

    "We have just returned from a week in Chateau Gaillac. We found the property perfect for our holiday - good quiet location amongst vinyards and sunflowers and 5 minute drive from a large supermarket. The surrounding area had many lovely villages to visit within a relatively short driving distance. We were 13 adults/ teenagers and the property was a great size for our party with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Private pool and outside eating area were just right for 13 and the kitchen was very well equipped. We didn't want to leave! If we returned again we would bring bicycles as there are plenty of quiet roads to explore and we were unable to find a rental place which was open in August!"

    "Chateau Gaillac completely fulfilled our expectations and our family group of 19 had a wonderful week. Neil and Marie are charming and thoughtful hosts who have sympathetically modernised this impressive old building, so we were both comfortable and appreciative of the interior design. Gaillac is well positioned for trips to the world heritage city of Albi and the atmospheric town of Cordes-sur-Ciel, both within 30 minutes. Toulouse is not much further. Highly recommended!"
    Susan D
    "Beautiful, grand, spacious, spotlessly clean, very well stocked/ equipped residence. Lovely friendly owners ( and their friend Camille) who were very accommodating. We were 3 families, 9 children in total ranging from 2 to 12 years old. We all loved the chateau. There was more than enough space for all of us and even extra rooms if you needed to get away for quiet time!!! One of the dining areas is outside directly adjacent to the kitchen on a covered terrace right beside the pool so a long breakfast/ lunch/ dinner is possible while watching the children play in the pool. We all love exercising and there are plenty of quiet country roads suitable for long runs and cycles. The pictures on the website do not do justice to the chateau- it is a truly fabulous place and we all felt lucky to be renting it. There is a huge supermarket within a 3 minute drive of the property. There is plenty of nature in the large garden for those adults and children that are interested! I would really recommend this place."

    "We've stayed at Chateau Galliac several times. The combination of peaceful ambience and belle époque glory are enchanting, we'd live there if we could. We liked: all modern amenities, lovely pool, large rooms and bathrooms restored sympathetically with classic furnishings - modern comfort in bygone charm. The terrace ideal for outside dining overlooking the pool, the glorious dining and reception rooms, walking country with vineyards and spectacular views. We found: You need a car, and best to go as a group."
