Cordes-sur-Ciel, located 75km north east of Toulouse,is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in France. As one of the gems of the region,its unique 13th and 14th century Gothic houses are reminiscent of Renaissance Tuscany, and the cobbled streets, large Halle (open air marketplace) and stone buildings are evocative of an earlier era.
In 2014 Cordes sur Ciel was awarded the accolade of Le Village Préféré des Français

A brief history:
Cordes, the first bastide town built by Count Raimon VII of Toulouse in 1222, was constructed to protect the scattered population from conflict during the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars.
Cordes grew quickly during the crusade, and as it grew, so did the number of rampart walls surrounding the village, with five lines of fortifications required over time. As hostilities reduced, prosperity came to Cordes with the growth of the cloth, wool and leathercraft industries, alongside trade and finance. Wealthy merchant and noble families built the magnificent Gothic residences in the 13th and 14th centuries, for which Cordes is famous.
Conflict and devastation, brought about by changes to economic circumstances and the plagues, saw the power and population of Cordes reduced by the start of the French Revolution, and the village went into a decline. In the late 19th century its fortunes revived as it became an important centre of the machine embroidery trade for 50 years. Then, in the 1940's, a group of artists, led by Yves Brayer, settled in Cordes and brought new life to the village. This artistic influence still thrives in Cordes today.
There is another renewal underway as more people realise what a jewel this village is, undertaking the slow and arduous process of restoring many of the buildings, and ensuring the ongoing survival of this beautiful spot. The annual medieval festival of the Grand Fauconnier is held on 13 & 14 July and is followed by Music sur Ciel, held in the Eglise Saint-Michel. Other festivals include gastronomic and Christmas fetes.
In 1993 the town was renamed Cordes-sur-Ciel (Cordes in the sky) to reflect the illusion created by the mists settling in the valley below, of a village floating above the clouds.
Village Facilities:
The Office de Tourism site for Cordes has a great deal of useful and interesting information in English and German as well as French. Details of local sites of interest, the artists, gardens and sporting facilities can be found here.
There is a weekly market on Saturday mornings in the lower town, on Place de la Bouteillerie. It always has a good range of seasonal fruit and vegetables, cheeses, fish, etc. If seeking a butcher, we suggest Chez Dennis, on av du 11 novembre 1918 , for his veal if nothing else. The best bread is at the La Pétrie Boulangerie, near the pharmacy. Take our trolley, walk down the hill to the market, and if the walk back up is too daunting, catch the Petit Train back up to Porte de Jane. Cave St Michel in the cité provides a great range of wine and sound advice from Francis - just mention our name! There are good local restaurants as well; we have compiled a detailed information booklet which is available in the house on your arrival.
With 3 cash machines, a bar in the lower town, 3 small supermarkets, a newsagent and a post office in addition to the butcher and baker, most needs of the visitor can be met close to our home.
Sporting Facilities:
Near to the village you can find golf at Golf d'Albi Lasbordes or Golf de Florentin Gaillac, kayaking, fishing and a swimming pool (a small fee applies) in the camp site Le Garissou in Les Cabannes from June through to September, or else year round swimming at Espace Nautique Atlantis in Albi. Laguepie, 10km north of Cordes, has a swimming pontoon on the river Viaur in season, with a lovely picnic and play area. Nearby Monesties has a lake, and there are also indoor and outdoor pools in Gaillac. In winter, you can go skiing an hour north, near Rodez. There are also many beautiful walking trails - for more information see sites such as Randonees Midi Pyrenees or Rando-marche

The best option for getting to and from Cordes sur Ciel is by car.

We do request a 50€ cash deposit on our keys which is returned to you on your departure.

I love to combine a working life with family, lots of travel and good food and wine. I am fortunate to have travelled to many parts of the world but am always happy to come home where I spend alot of my time in the veggie garden and in the kitchen creating food from the veggie garden!! I am a keen swimmer and train in the pool with the Master's Swimming Club in Warrnambool Victoria. Warrnambool also happens to be on the Southern Ocean so regular ocean swimming is also a pass time. My favourite travel destinations are Cordes sur Ciel France and Port Douglas, North Queensland. I prefer to travel first class and a fair amount of comfort along the way.
