Hilde and Japhet welcome you at 'Le Ribet'.

This old farmhouse built in 1887, is situated in the small village of Lempaut, in the southernmost part of the Tarn department (South of France), at the border with the Aude (Languedoc-Roussillon), about 150 km from the Pyrenees. For tourists travelling to Spain, this is the ideal place to stop for the night or even for a few days.

Whilst looking for a suitable place for creating our dream, a few years ago we discovered this region with its treasure of culture and wonderful places to see.

In 2003 we finally found our place in the sun, 'Le Ribet', which took us five years to find.

 Meanwhile we have renovated a part of the old farm, changing it into a bed and breakfast. We also have three gîtes (holidayhouses) planned in the annexes of the farm.

In this oasis of tranquillity you are welcome all year round.
We welcome you in a relaxed and homelike atmosphere.

In our shady little frontgarden you can doze off in a hammock or enjoy reading a lovely book in one of our garden-chairs. We'll serve you something to drink and to nibble.

After a refreshing dive in our swimming-pool (10 x 5 m) you can enjoy the sun in a comfortable reclining-chair.
Do you like 'petanque' ? We lend you the material.

Those who like to discover the region, we offer all tourist information in different languages. We lend roadmaps and you can get information on cycling (MTB) and walking tours.

There is a safe parking place for cars, bikes and motorbikes on the premises.

Bed and breakfast

Guests in our B&B, are staying in a comfortable, contemporary room with all conveniences (shower, toilet and washbasin).
In the morning we provide a copious breakfast. In the evening we serve, by request, dinner.

Would you like to try a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood ? We can give you some addresses.
We do not have a bar at le Ribet, nevertheless drinks and snacks are available at low prices.

If you go out sightseeing you can get, by request, a picknick. If you prefer to stay here, you are welcome to join us for sandwiches at lunch.


In one of the annexes we have arranged a gîte for 4 to 8 guests (113 m²).
On the ground floor: a hall, a living-room, a dining-room, a fully equipped kitchen, one bedroom (double bed) and a bathroom (shower, toilet, washbasin). The gîte has its own terrace with garden furniture and BBQ.

On the upper floor: sleeping-accommodation with different bedroomcorners (two double beds and a battery bed). On this floor there is a second bathroom with a shower, two washbasins and a toilet. There is also a small terrace.

Our gîte is equipped for receiving disabled guests: a bedroom and adapted bathroom on the ground floor. Even in the kitchen adaptations are foreseen.


We and our cat Moby, are looking forward to receiving you.

With kindest regards,

Hilde, Japhet,
