La Villa’s History

Just a short stroll from the centre of the market town of Mazamet, La Villa is one of the area’s landmark buildings, dating to a time when Mazamet had world importance for its wool industry.

After extensive renovations, La Villa de Mazamet now opens its doors as a luxury “Chambres d’hôtes” (bed & breakfast) – offering five sumptuous, air-conditioned, guest bedrooms, dining room, gardens & swimming pool; in addition to ‘Le Petit Spa’ with its sauna, jacuzzi and a range of massages.

The Restoration

Throughout the restoration project, which included a complete re-wire and re-plumb of the entire property, we ensured that all original features were maintained. So when you stay at La Villa, you will walk on beautiful oak parquet flooring that we sanded and varnished by hand, ceilings & cornices re-painted to show off their former glory, intricate marble fireplaces (all 11 of them!) buffed & polished, the original art deco baths re-enameled and brought back to life….not to mention sanding and painting of 48 pairs of shutters!

All who have stayed at La Villa have remarked how tasteful and respectful the renovations have been – turning what is regarded as one of Mazamet’s most architecturally important buildings, into a modern and sumptuous place to call “home” for all those who pass through our doors.

Guest Facilities

We appreciate how important it is to feel relaxed and “at home” when on holiday. In addition to the facilities you will find in your own private air-conditioned bedrooms, we want you to feel relaxed in every part of La Villa whilst you are with us.

Inside, you will find two lounges – one quiet for reading or enjoying your favourite tipple before dinner, the other with magazines, board & card games, and a selection of over 200 movies on DVD which you can watch in the lounge or in your own bedroom.

A small library on the first floor has an eclectic mix of books which you can borrow throughout your stay (and we don’t mind if you take a paperback with you if you don’t finish it!).

For the ultimate relaxation, an afternoon in Le Petit Spa with its jacuzzi and infrared sauna may help to re-charge your batteries. You can even book a massage with our professional masseur.

Outside space is also really important and our whole private walled garden is open to guests with a sun terrace, a gazebo fitted with comfy sofas and chairs, as well as a swimming pool. At the rear of the garden, you can also see our kitchen garden where we grow seasonal vegetables and herbs for use in our dishes.

La Villa offers guests the comfort of a complete smoke-free environment, including the gardens & pool area.
