Sunny first floor apartment overlooking Mediterranean garden. In the heart of a wine growing village, surrounded by vineyards, close to the sea.

The space

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.

Guest access

All our guests have free access to our gardens and pool.

Interaction with guests

We live here and welcome all our guests personally. We are on hand for information and help but never intrude

Other things to note

his is large house, and also our home. Tony and I live here permanently, as do our respective mothers who have independent ground floor apartments. We have lived here for 12 years and have put alot of thought and hard work into creating a pleasant setting for us and our family and especially for all our guests.

Parts of the house date back probably to the 17th century, and some areas are late 19th century. This presents many challenges in creating comfortable modernised accommodation whilst retaining old world charm. For example, we have chosen to keep some wonderful centuries old wooden beams uncovered, they have been treated of course but can cause dust.

Family bedrooms and living space are separate from the guest areas but it should be noted that all access to the back garden and pool area is via our kitchen. We have plans to build a separate kitchen one day but for the moment the lay-out of the house dictates that guests have to go through the kitchen. We are very open about this and guests should never worry about 'disturbing' us. In fact chambre d'hôte guests have full use of all our kitchen equipment etc.

We only stayed one night around New Year and unfortunately the small village was reasonably deserted.

Carole was warm and friendly, and went out of her way to cater for our 4year old Grandsons needs by providing extra toys and ensuring that the pool was clean. She upgraded us to her most suitable suite. We were looked after extremely well during our stay.

Carole and her husband were delightful to meet and the rooms we booked were super quiet with a great bed and a lovely new bathroom. Internet worked really well and we paid extra for breakfast which was served in the garden and very enjoyable. For me, the perfect place to stop on route through France. We visited Pezénes on their recommendations and it's a fab little town with great shops and good food. Thanks Carole.

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.

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!!!!!

We enjoyed a great stay at Carole's apartment. It was sunny, warm and comfortable. Montblanc was a good place to be based to visit Carcasonne, Beziers, Pezenas, Cap d'Agde, Sete and Montpellier. Carole was very prompt at answering our emails and was very helpful finding a Christmas market that had iceskating - a request from the children!

We moved to France 25 years ago and have lived in Languedoc for 20 years as we love it so much. Our 3 kids grew up here and have moved away but enjoy coming back to visit and now we have both our mothers living with us as well. We have dogs and grandchildren, all equally loved!, and enjoy welcoming guests into our family home and life - many have become friends and comeback regularly.

My husband, Tony, is passionate about photography, in particular 19th century wetplate photography . He has built himself a darkroom and photo lab and has built up an impressive collection of cameras and photographic equipment as well as old photos and prints. He loves sharing his passion with visitors so please come and chat with him about it all. He tours the local antiques and 'flea' markets every Sunday and is adept at spotting interesting finds.

We aim to provide a relaxed and family atmosphere at Villa Roquette. Our house reflects our varied interests and passions and is as far away as possible from a formal hotel experience.
