A French-Swedish couple at your service.


Sandra is the one who is in charge of the B&B. She speaks English and Swedish fluently, and also a little French. Previously she's worked in university administration in Sweden, in Lund and Växjö, and has had specialist jobs with equal opportunities (mainly gender equality). Here at Cadelen, the garden in its entirety with the trees, flowers and vegetable plot will be her big project. Sandra is in charge of bookings, greeting the guests, breakfast, preparing the rooms, cleaning, caring for the garden and the animals, and doing the purchasing. She will gladly answer any questions you might have.

​Sylvain is French, and speaks French and English fluently. He also speaks a little Spanish. He has had careers in the French motor sports industry, and in diving as an instructor and dive centre owner/manager. The latter has taken him to some of the most beautiful places on earth. Now the beauty of Tarn and Cadalen is his passion.

Sylvain has another full time job so his duties with the B&B are mostly house maintenance. He will gladly answer any questions you might have about your stay, travelling arrangements and places to visit in the area, especially when these are in French.
