A lot of time and thought has gone into restoring this beautiful old building and making Villa Caroline a fabulous place to stay. Central location but quiet and with local free parking. Our room with cathedral view was super clean and comfortable. Warm welcome from Mario who is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Ask him about places to eat. We had...

Chambres D'hotes come in all shapes and sizes - this is one of the larger ones in a beautifully restored town house with a stunning view of the cathedral. You can tell the proprietor is an architect with an eye for detail. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast featured the best pastries in the whole of France, and...

My husband and I have been travelling around France and staying in small hotels and Bed and Breakfasts. We found Villa Caroline to be our absolute favourite of them all. Mario, the owner, is extremely friendly, helpful and attentive. Our room had a spectacular view of Albi and was southern facing. It was charming, extremely clean and equipped with everything...

Mario deserves every success with Villa Caroline. We had a short one night stay, our family of five using two of the available rooms. Mario is a charming host but this place really scores with its spectacular views of Albi Cathedral from the breakfast terrace and the excellent breakfast provided by Mario, a range of delicious pastries, home made jams,...

We really enjoyed our one night stay here. Mario, our host, was pleasant and informative. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. Guests have access to a kitchen with refrigerator (with bottles of cold water), microwave, stove and tea kettle (and tea). The old city, which you can see from the room and the terrace, is just a short...

We stayed just one night at Villa Caroline - what a great location - walkable to the main attractions of Albi inlcuding the cathedral, Toulouse-Letrec museum, shops and restaurants of the old town.

This is the place to stay in Albi ! The location is perfect and the large rooms are nicely decorated, quiet, and very comfortable. You can easily walk to the Cathedral, Museum, and other places to visit and there are many great restaurants within walking distance. Mario (the owner) was extremely nice and helpful and the breakfast was tasty.
