Albi - Tarn

Albi, authentic city in Midi-Pyrénées ... 45 minutes from Toulouse and 20 minutes from Cordes-sur-Ciel

Staying at the Alchimy, place des Cordeliers, between the historic heart and the great theater of Albi, you are close to all monuments and tourist attractions. Majestically placed on the banks of the Tarn, the picturesque medieval city is almost intact. Listed as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO since 2010, its monuments are revealed: its elegant cathedral Sainte-Cécile (largest brick cathedral in the world) watches over the Old Bridge (XI), its famous Toulouse-Lautrec Museum installed in the palace of Bishops and its Palace of Berbie are to be visited.

All dressed red bricks, the city of Tarn, which was born Toulouse-Lautrec, honors its past and cultivates a certain lifestyle. From a delicate pink in the morning, powerful orange under the summer sunshine or red madder at night, the brick offers a palette as vivid as the history of the city.
But Albi is not just a museum city. It is a dynamic city resolutely turned towards the future. It offers many activities, cultural and sporting activities ... (Pastel night, marathon, festival Pause Guitar, Superbike, Carnival ...). Its atmosphere is appreciated at the turn of an old narrow alley, a terrace of sunny coffee or a pleasant gourmet break on the banks of the Tarn.
As soon as one moves away from the center, one finds oneself very quickly in the heart of a pretty hilly and green countryside. Discover the perched village of Cordes-sur-Ciel, the banks of the Canal du Midi, the Pays de Cocagne, land of pastel, used to make the precious dyes from which the region prospered until the end of the 15th century. In Lautrec, a preserved medieval village, no trace of the painter, but workshops where enthusiasts revive this ancestral craftsmanship.
