A special place, in a very special part of France…

Cordes - one of those two or three places awaiting each of us in this world (Camus)

Welcome to the Maison des Oiseaux

France still has the dream like quality we search for in our holiday destinations. With its diversity, culture, scenery, and the people themselves, it attracts more visitors than any other country. Nonetheless, the Tarn is removed from the well worn paths of foreign tourism, and offers serenity and spectacular scenery to those looking for new adventures.

The small bastide town of Cordes-sur-Ciel offers history, natural beauty, great food, wine and a sense of escape from the well trodden routes.

After 30 years of exploring this varied country, we are able to offer you a taste of our little dream in France.  Our chambre d’hôte at the Maison des Oiseaux offers you the opportunity to spend a while in a wonderfully preserved, yet lively, medieval bastide village, with all the comforts of 21st century living .

We invite you to share the enchantment from our home in Cordes-sur- Ciel.
