I booked here as part of a smart box gift , accommodation and wine tasting. The accommodation we could not fault, Brigitte was extremely helpful when booking, and the breakfast was traditional French croissants bread etc. The availability of terraces where one can sit and relax, the kitchen which had everything you could need, the cosy lounge in the evening. We wished we had booked more than a night.
The only drawback was the wine tasting which was at Chateau Lastour, some 15 minutes from the Domaine du Buc. This consisted of a brief history of the family business, a visit to the "back garden" (in need of some TLC) and then some wine tasting. No visit around the cellars, or explainations of the whole process. Very disappointing. Also included in our deal were cocktails on arrival at the Domaine du Buc, this consisted of either orange juice or water. Not what I would call cocktails.
However we would love to go back just on a B&B basis and spend more time in Albi. A beautiful city.
