PUECH BLANC Fayssac in Gaillac wine region, France

Andrea & Ian warmly invite you to come and stay with us here at Puech Blanc. We have created some beautiful gîtes to ensure you get the most from your special vacation here in the south west of France. Discover this fascinating corner of France and fall in love with it just as we did. Visit the medieval 'Bastide' villages, see the Toulouse-Lautrec museum in Albi and just enjoy the charm and tranquillity of Puech Blanc and the Tarn valley. We fell in love with the beautiful and yet undiscovered countryside of the Tarn department and we are sure it will make the perfect holiday location for you.

We are situated among the Gaillac vineyards in the rolling hills on the north side of the Tarn valley. To ensure your stay at Puech Blanc is special, we invite our guests to join us for a glass or two of wine, or maybe play 'jeu de boules', or have a bbq. We offer you our homemade bread & jam, and you are free to pick fruit from our many cherry, fig, & apple trees. We endeavour to help you get the best from your stay with us.
