Bed & Culture arose from our desire to share our luck at being born in this region in the middle of the sublime, unspoilt Occitan countryside surrounded by villages that reflect the past and its rich yet simple culture.
With our themed breaks, experiences and encounters in the area and the remarkable or extraordinary local sites, you too can become a little Occitan for a while…
Want to escape and enjoy nature? You might like our Green Gatway. You can recharge your batteries while enjoying the peaceful surroundings of La Monestarié for a weekend.
Our beautiful Occitan region has all the ingredients for happiness!
Visit the “bastides” (fortified towns), the beautiful city of Albi with its cathedral and museums, the majestic Midi Canal and so much more!
Meet the people who make pastel dye from woad, or wander round the picturesque farmers’
markets… Stroll down the small roads in the undulating countryside or pass through the vineyards…
Discover and savour the local “terroir” wines and cuisine that encapsulate the generosity of the area and its inhabitants.
In this region, people reply “With pleasure!” to every “Thank you”, and this sums up the spirit that
drives us – we’d like to keep up the tradition!
La Monestarié has given us a chance to return to our roots and start a new life. We’ve always loved nature, beautiful houses, receiving guests and having conversations about our local area, sharing our taste for travel, all kinds of culture and good food.
But, in addition to offering accommodation in an outstanding setting, we want to create unique experiences during your break in a warm, friendly atmosphere where nothing is forced. We’d like to offer you an interlude of light and freedom with a love for the simple, authentic pleasures in life, meticulous detail, exquisite aesthetics and comfort. This is the inspiration that gave rise to Bed & Culture.
The rest of the story will be written with you as we meet…
