Bed & Culture is born from a 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…
Before La Monestarié’s opening ♡
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.
We’ve always loved receiving people and introducing them to the region, and La Monestarié opened its arms to welcome us, giving us the opportunity to make a lifestyle change and do what we love best.
Here, people always reply “With pleasure!” to every “Thank you”, and this sums up the spirit that drives us and that we’d like to share with you.
