The vineyards of the Gaillac region, SW France
The finest holiday rental property in Gaillac region of SW France, with pool. This property is utterly luxurious and of a standard many times higher than anything else available in the Gaillac wine region.
Selected by the Sunday Times in their choice of 'Europe's 50 Best Villas' 2014
This is one of the most luxurious self-catering properties in France. No expense has been spared in creating a large, very comfortable home that is beautiful inside and out. Explore it in these photos.
We think this is the perfect place to relax and unwind amongst the rural idyll of South-West France. On the one side are the rolling hills of the Gaillac wine region, whilst to the front of the house there are uninterrupted panoramic views as far as the Pyrénées, affording amazing sunsets and glimpses of seven spires in distant villages.
Hafod is a substantial detached property standing on its own with private views. It has three good-sized bedrooms, plenty of reception rooms, and can comfortably sleep six people. There is a well equipped kitchen, a dining room, summer room, snug and sitting room. There are antiques in abundance, and the owners' eclectic taste and style combine to create a very special house. There are two bathrooms, one with a wetroom shower.
The swimming pool (usually 15 May to 31 Oct) with electric cover, overlooks the farmland that surrounds the house, and is separated from the field below by a simple 'ha-ha' so that you feel that you are in open landscape.
Hafod also boasts its own full-size billiard table (for adults only). Hafod was also voted no. 36 in the Sunday Times Best 50 Villas 2014!

Wow! This is a stunning house! We felt like we were in French heaven. There are lots of things to do in this beautiful part of France, but the real highlight of the holiday for us was being in Hafod itself. It is a stylish, well-designed retreat. Every aspect of the house and garden has been thoughtfully planned and considered. There so many delightful choices of places to sit and relax, both inside and outside, either to enjoy the sunshine or to take shelter in the shade. The bedrooms and bathrooms are incredibly stylish and comfortable. The furniture and furnishings are beautiful and create a mellow, peaceful feel. We're already thinking about when we can return to this special place. Keri, Paul and Joe, July 2016
What a fabulous place! Beautiful setting, gorgeous decor, insanely well equipped kitchen and fantastic pool - the house just works so well and is wonderfully relaxing. We had a brilliant week eating, swimming, exploring Gaillac, Albi and around - our main problem was tearing the children away from the pool. ;-)
Hafod was an absolutely beautiful house to stay in , I would definitely go there again , it's in a stunning part of France , surrounded by sunflower fields and the views from the pool & garden were second to none ! The interior decor was amazing but totally in keeping with the french rustic feel of the original building , we loved it.
