About this listing
Sunny first floor apartment overlooking Mediterranean garden. In the heart of a wine growing village, surrounded by vineyards, close to the sea.
You can choose the Poppy bedroom or the Olive bedroom and we then open up the adjacent salon to create a comfortable and practical apartment.
The Poppy bedroom has a double bed, the bathroom has a tub, overhead shower, basin and separate WC. Central heating and aircon in the bedroom.
The Olive bedroom has a kingsized bed, or 2 singles, and has a shower room with shower, basin and WC. Central heating, overhead electric fan.
The salon - which can be combined with either bedroom - has a pull-out sofabed, dining table and chairs, and a small but fully-equipped kitchen (electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge, cutlery, plates and utensils).
Breakfast is not included in the rental price but we are happy to offer this to our guests if they wish for a small extra charge of 6 euros per head. It is served in the garden or in our salon. We offer coffee / tea / chocolate with croissants, bread, butter, jams, fresh fruits.
Swimming pool, gardens, bicycles,golf clubs
Interaction with Guests
We live here and welcome all our guests personally. We are on hand for information and help but never intrude
Our village has a great range of shops - 2 bakeries, butcher, chemist, supermarket, fruit and veg shop, post office, restaurant and bar - and we are very close to larger towns such as Pezenas, Agde and Beziers which have lots of historical interest. The Mediterranean is nearby, and inland there is great countryside with lakes and rivers.
Local transport is good, clean and inexpensive and all villages have regular services, but – and this is very important – bus services are not always very frequent and to explore all this large region car is best – cycling is very popular and the empty roads and byways make a bicycle ride a delightful way of discovering the Sud de France.
L appartement est relativement fidèle aux photos, mais dommage que l extérieur ne soit pas entretenu...pas de baignade possible! Plus esprit auberge bobo, que les vacances paisibles en famille que nous recherchions... Carole reste très sympathique.
A lovely spacious apartment in the middle of a very picturesque French village. Within half an hour you can be at one of lots of beaches. Beziers and Agde also very close. We were very happy with our stay.
Hôte très agréable, habitation calme avec la piscine et le jardin idéal pour se reposer je recommande vivement.
Hôte très accueillante et arrangeante, nous avons passé un très bon séjour.
Кэрол, приятная женщина, гостеприимная и ненавязчивая. Дом это большое строение, разделённое на две части в одной живёт Кэрол с семьёй, а другая это мини гостиница, могу ошибаться, но я насчитала 6 апартаментов. За домом большой общий двор, бассейн. Всё как Кэрол и описывает. Также во дворе есть мангал и барбекю, детская площадка. Ещё живут две чудесные собаки и кот. В апартаментах есть всё необходимое, посуда, кофеварка, микроволновка, духовка,полотенца, хороший фен, утюг. Место это очень тихая деревушка. Есть очень приятный ресторан Mahi-Mahi там живут 7! котов :) Мы были на машине и поездили по окрестностям- очень приятные места. Виноградники и фермы, где можно купить вина и фрукты-овощи прямо с грядки.
Marie and I spent three weeks in the Poppy apartment. The apartment is well equipped which allowed us to choose to cook for ourselves or eat out.
Villa roquette is very good value and the access to the garden and swimming pool made it an ideal location for some exercise or a lazy afternoon reading or relaxing.
Carole was very helpful in advising where to go and what to see and provided towels and beach equipment for visits to the many beaches.
There is a huge choice of interestingly places to visit and things to do but realistically you do need a car to explore as montblanc is a small village and relying on public transport will limit your options.
The area has lots of food options from fabulous fruit and vegetable to cook yourself through a huge range of seafood restaurants in the many local ports and beaches.
The bedroom has air conditioning which was great as nightime temperatures make sleeping difficult without it. The apartment is on a lovely quiet street and you can walk to the boulangerie to get fresh bread for your breakfast. Carole has tables set in the garden and you can choose to have your breakfast in the morning sunshine.
Overall we had a wonderful time in the area and in villa roquette in particular.
We travelled from Carcassonne airport which is about 80 mins by car to Montblanc
The stay at Carole and Tony's place was extra excellent. The bed was super comfortable(TemperPedic I think), the room and property were very quaint, and we even had a a nice breakfast with croissants, fruit and jams, for a very little charge. Tony and Carole were so accommodating and very helpful with directions and restaurant advice. We liked the little village and Everyone was so nice. Tony and Carole's dogs, Helios and Rocky, are super sweet, love to play, and are super behaved :)
If you are going through Montblanc or the near area, stay at Carole's; you will not be disappointed! Thank you Tony and Carole for a wonderful experience!!!!!
