CLOSED ANNUALLY: From January 14th to February 16th, 2019 

THE STORY: In 2014, Thierry Gallardo quit his job as a human resources director in order to pursue an old dream: opening a bed & breakfast. Three years later, you can find him at home in Lectoure, in an 18th-century hôtel particulier in the Gers department, which he redid entirely for the occasion. In addition to five themed and luxurious XXL suites (a four-poster walnut wood bed that’s very 1950s in the Francis Poulenc room, 4-meter-high French ceilings in the Jean-Baptiste Lully room, an enchanting Cole and Son tapestry in the Mozart room…), the house also includes a lounge space/dining room with a library, a spa with an indoor pool, a tasting room, an outdoor pool and even an authentic (honesty) bar, where guests are invited to write down what they consume. Bonus: the table d’hôte and evening drinks served by Thierry, who likes to keep a chill vibe. Suites starting at €170 a night.

TOILETRIES: Shampoo, shower gel and soap from Graine de pastel, a brand from Toulouse.
INTERNET: Free (wifi).
BREAKFAST: Included, with tea or coffee, baguette, organic homemade bread, viennoiseries, cake, homemade jams, charcuterie, cheese, fruits, and organic or homemade fruit juice.
MINI-BAR: No, but there is bottled water, an electric tea pot and a coffee machine available in all the rooms, along with an honesty bar on the ground floor.
LITTLE LUXURY: Getting a back rub (€90 for an hour-long massage) under the vaulted ceilings of the former kitchens, alongside the indoor pool.
