Lots of bars and restaurants at the top of Cordes but our favourites both at the bottom of Cordes are

  • Le Bistrot Cordais: simple French food, great salads and pizzas with fantastic outside panoramic terrace overlooking local countryside
  • Billyssimo: good pizzeria eat in and takeaway with outside shady terrace (but on the roadside)

The restaurant Le Cayrols (servces modern French food using local produce in a lovely setting) is just outside Cordes on the road to Albi

Gaillac – 20 minutes

Several large supermarkets but our favourite is L’Eclerc

A good range of bars and restaurants. We really like:

A number of bakeries, greengrocers, pharmacies, banks and a Post Office

Gaillac has a fantastic big market every Friday morning. Definitely worth a visit

Albi – 30 minutes

Lots of shops, supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants. If you want to do some clothes shopping or buy a special something, this is the place to go

We really like the Le Clos Sainte Cecile restaurant for great French food in a fabulous outdoor setting

L’Alchimy modern French cuisine and fantastic cocktails

Oscar serves great French food at reasonable places. Book a table in their outside terrace on a hot sunny day

Lou Cantoun Restaurant: great food and ambience (cheaper at lunchtime)
