“I was delighted to win and am looking forward to returning to the beautiful Villa. A wonderful place. I’m a midwife working in Cork and will be glad when we are allowed to travel to France again.”, says Maire.


Aymen Zaier from France, who, along with his wife who’s also a doctor, fulfilled their duties, cared for their patients, while looking after their young child.

Aymen is one of the lucky winners of the #EssentialWorkers giveaway at La Villa de Mazamet!
“I’m really moved to see all this recognition when we’re just doing our job. It’s a difficult time for everyone, so thank you for this breath of fresh air that you offer us and that we accept with great pleasure.”, says Aymen

Congrats to them both!

Treat your #EssentialWorker to a two-night package at La Villa

#essentialworkers giveaway 2-night stay at La Villa de Mazamet

What is the common denominator between researchers, garbage collectors, shelf stockers, nurses, social workers, deliverymen, doctors, cashiers, farmers and so on and so on? They ALL took care of us during this unprecedented crisis. Now, it’s time to take care of them. As a humble token of our appreciation and gratitude, we’re giving away a two-night package for two at La Villa de Mazamet to a nominated #essentialworker. Tell us why they are your #essentialworker and they’ll stand a chance to win a B&B stay in our Classic room, including breakfasts and 1 evening meal.

There are 2 ways to nominate your #EssentialWorker:

  1. Via our Facebook page
  2. Via our Instagram page

We’re very happy to be able to play a small part in this fantastic support campaign. So happy in fact that there will be not one, but two prizes! One for essential workers in France and one for essential workers abroad!

Submissions close on May 20th, and we’ll then announce the lucky winners.

This campaign is inspired by the #TreatOurNHS initiative in the UK, which we heard of from the wonderful people over at @CrossLaneHouse.

Best of luck and thank you to all of the incredible staff out there for keeping us safe, fed and healthy.
