A tribute to the art of living the Aveyron way

Welcome to our charming hotel-restaurant between Albi & Rodez

Play movie

It all started in Sauveterre de Rouergue in Aveyron, a superb 18th-century royal bastide, nestled in the heart of the upper Ségala.

This mediaeval city is listed among the Most Beautiful Villages of France and tells you about its eight centuries of history as you walk through its paved streets, visiting the arts and crafts shops and emblematic arcade-lined square.

Discover

Le Sénéchal**** is one of the must-visit places, as it gives you the opportunity to experience a moment untouched by time. You are welcomed into the warm and refined ambiance of the half-timbered charming hotel and Hervé GERDELAT fine-dining restaurant.

Simplicity serves elegance from the decor to the plate. As the seasons go by, the chef showcases the regional gastronomy heritage. Hervé GERDELAT’s cuisine is the perfect marriage of tradition, passion and rigour, and is a reflection of the chef: sincere, generous and inventive.

    Nous avons séjourné une nuit à l'hôtel et avons ainsi pu profiter de son cadre bucolique. Les chambres sont grandes et propres et nous y avons très bien dormi.
