Very special weekend
End November we visited with a group of friends St Antonin to celebrate a special birthday, and we stayed a weekend in La Residence. Our hosts Lisa and Richard helped us with the organization and preparation of a fantastic surprise party (in La Residence!), including a delicious Asian buffet.
It was a very special weekend, and we fully enjoyed the beautiful location, the luxurious and beautifully decorated rooms, the extraordinary breakfast, and - last but not least - the warm hospitality offered by Lisa and Richard, who made us feel so welcome and at home!
St Antonin is a beautiful old little town, where you can wander through the small streets, or take a long walk along the river, visit the colourful Sunday market, or have a coffee at the Place de la Halle. A town really worth a visit, and if you're there, then La Residence is a wonderful place to stay. Lisa and Richard, thank you so much for a wonderful weekend, we will definitely be back!

A group of 10 of us - all Australians - made La Residence our base for a week in September 2019, when we did a walking tour of the medieval villages in the neighbouring Tarn department. We couldn't have had a better HQ. Even before we arrived, Lisa and Richard helped us with suggestions, bookings and background information. Once we were there, they were the perfect hosts - welcoming, friendly, generous with their time (and their wine!), and always willing to go the extra mile to make our sometimes complicated arrangements easier so that we could focus on the business of walking, eating and exploring St Antonin itself.
Their local knowledge is a real asset - Lisa helped us organise a local historian to lead an orientation tour of St Antonin on our first evening, and that provided exactly the right beginning for us all. Her restaurant suggestions were also spot on, providing diversity in cost and style and a reason to wander around the town. And none of us will forget the morning that we all rose at 6 am to watch the AFL Grand Final live-streamed from Melbourne, courtesy of Richard, accompanied by breakfast including mini meat pies, courtesy of Lisa.
The breakfasts at La Residence were invariably delicious, as other reviewers have noted, but Lisa's packed lunches are also worth hiking long distances for. The garden was the perfect place to share drinks and commiserations after each day's walk and plan for the next. And of course the rooms were the perfect refuge at the end of the day - charming, comfortable and well appointed. The tea-and-coffee-making equipment was a bonus, rarely seen in French establishments.
A truly memorable week.

This hotel is an excellent place to stay in the heart of Saint Antonin Noble Val, a 12th century village about an hour outside of Toulouse in the beautiful south of France countryside. Besides the, great location in town, the rooms are very clean and you can have a lovely breakfast included with your stay.
What made this memorable for me were the owners who were very accommodating and helpful. When I needed to make arrangements for transportation when leaving on a day that was a national holiday, they helped me connect with a train to meet my schedule and made sure I made my connection. This kind of exceptional service is above and beyond.

La Residence was perfect for our requirements. We stayed for 4 nights. Beautiful room with terrace and great view. Great breakfast. Delightful hosts. Guest access to garden. In the very centre of St-Antonin. Free parking nearby (2/3 minutes walk). Close to restaurants, historic buildings etc.

An amazing week in beautiful accommodation
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Richard and Lisa are wonderful hosts. The garden at La Residence is a tranquil haven. Breakfast is served here on warm days and you couldn’t ask for a better start to the day. The little cakes beautifully presented next to yogurt and home made muesli are also a lovely touch and absolutely delicious.
The accommodation is not only stunning but also spotless. Each room is different and there is also a self catering option. If you want to escape the hustle bustle of life enjoy good food and wine, great hospitality in stunning surroundings book now. You won’t regret it.

We have just spent three nights at La Residence and it was absolutely top notch. Our hosts Richard and Lisa were so kind and welcoming. The hotel itself is right in the middle of town but situated on a quiet and characterful street. Parking was free and in nearby streets.The hotel is beautifully maintained and all of the rooms a good size, with all of the home comforts that we needed, Breakfast was an absolute treat and Lisa’s homemade cakes were scrumptious.
There is also a lovely garden which Richard and Lisa have spent time developing. The town itself is so beautiful with history and character in abundance. Plenty of places to explore, the river nearby and a wonderful Sunday market.
We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here and wish Richard and Lisa every success.

The best place we've stayed on our European trip. Great room with huge bed and a delicious breakfast with homemade cake and tomatoes from the garden. The hotel is very close to the centre but the garden was peaceful and quiet. Richo ;) and Lisa were tremendous and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Comfort and Elegance
We loved the well-furnished room and very comfortable bed, the modern bathroom and warm, friendly welcome from Lisa and Richard. There was everything you could want in the rooms and a delicious, generous breakfast in the garden, which provides somewhere to relax quietly after sightseeing or travelling.
Great situation and plenty to do and see in the town and area. Several days stay recommended!

Wow what a hotel!!! Great rooms with beautiful linen. The heat was up but the room stayed cool without AC. Scratched cooked cake included at breakfast was a lovely treat.

Perfect BnB. We had help with our bags, the room was large and beautifully decorated, a great garden to sit in and breakfast personally served to us - no buffet. This is the best BnB we've stayed at in France.
