La Borie Grande is located at the apex of the “Triangle d’Or” (golden triangle), considered to be Tarn’s most prized area.. The rolling countryside is a patchwork of vineyards, sunflower fields and pasture, dotted with medieval villages and hilltop bastides.
On the doorstep of La Borie Grande is Cordes-sur-Ciel, the largest and best-preserved of the 13th Century bastide towns. Visitors can wonder through the steep cobbled streets, explore art galleries and admire the work of ancient and modern artisans.
The medieval town of Albi, with its extraordinary 13th Century Cathedral, is a twenty minute drive to the south.
Several villages listed as “Les Plus Beau Villages de France”, including Castlenau de Montmiral, Monesties, Bruniquel, Puycelsi, Najac, Lautrec and Sauveterre-de-Rouergue are located a short drive from La Borie Grande. Other notable destinations include the beautiful market town of Saint Antonin Noble Val and the rocky precipice of Penne.
Wine-tasting may be undertaken in the Gaillac vinyards and almost every day traditional markets may be found through the region.
