The landscape is punctuated with ancient stone villages, farms and churches.
Facilities available near Le Batut include:
Our local vineyard, which, happily, is actually in our village of Noailles, is the Domaine de Bouscaillous. Go and introduce yourself to Annie and try her wonderful rosé, well chilled, on the terrace at le Batut!
Not far away there are other splendid winemakers.. try Labarthe, Lacroux, Larroque, Labastide, Brin, Mayragues, Salettes, Sarrabelle, Plageoles… the list goes on!
Quaint mediaeval Cordes-sur-Ciel and St-Antonin-Noble-Val (ancient town, made famous by Helen Mirren's film The Hundred Foot Journey and Cate Blanchet's Charlotte Gray) are easy drives from Le Batut, and stunning Albi with its cathedral and Toulouse-Lautrec museum is only half an hour away.
Don’t miss the Albi bric-a-brac market on Saturday mornings, St Antonin’s animated produce market on Sundays or, for those lucky enough to be going at the right time in August, the wonderful Fete du Vin in Gaillac!
‘ We had a great holiday with our four children and the area around Le Batut is stunning with Cordes
on your doorstep
a real treat.’
