Interaction with Guests
We live here and are happy to help with advice, suggestions etc but never intrude.
Montblanc is a busy and attractive village with good local shops plus a restaurant and bar. We are close to the Mediterranean and with easy access to historic market towns - Pezenas, 10 minutes away is delightful - and also word famous sites such as Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi
We enjoyed our stay in Carole's apartment. The apartment was clean, the kitchen was well equipped, with all the accessories we needed for a comfortable stay. It is also conveniently located, in proximity to most tourist destinations in Hérault department. Highly recommended for anyone travelling in the area!
Tony came to fetch us when we arrived at the rail station, and Carol too came down with another car when the former wouldn't start. The apartment is self catering but we had most of our meals in the dining area or backyard.
We had Carol prepare for us spaghetti bolognese for lunch, and chicken in provencal sauce for dinner as most shops are closed on Sundays. Very tasty and appetizing.
We had the pleasure of meeting John (another guest), Rocky & Helios dogs).
Tony helped us with directions and recommendations. He even printed out maps for us which was helpful. Carol lent us a large beach bag to stuff our things in, plus a beach towel.
It's the first place we've stayed through airbnb that has 2 air conditioners (living/bedroom)!
Rocky was kinda sad on our last day and licked my wife's hand and stood near her. :)
A quiet and pleasant place to stay.
We had a brilliant time with Tony and Carole. Tony picked us up from the airport, Carole cooked us a fabulous meal with local wine, and our accomm. was just perfect - and quiet! We arrived 8.30 p.m. and sadly had to leave after breakfast the following day, so we plan to return for a longer stay next time, as it was so lovely.
On our way back to the airport, Tony took us to a vineyard where we bought some more of the excellent wine, and an added delight was to walk Rocky the dog through the vines! What a treat.
Cannot thank you enough, Carole and Tony! Gillian, Peter and Mary.
My boyfriend and I loved our stay in the Rose Apartment. And Tony and
Carole were the best of hosts! They were extremely welcoming and
hospitable and had a wealth of information regarding the town,
attractions, and restaurants. They even recommend a Vineyard for us to
go to for wine tasting, which we had a great time at and bought some
amazing wines! On another night we cooked dinner in the backyard with
Tony's awesome bbq and Carole took the time to bring us plates,
glasses, a tablecloth and even candles - needless to say we had a very
romantic candle light dinner that night :) They also have two loving
dogs who were so sweet and playful. The apartment itself was perfect -
exactly what we were hoping for! It was spotless, had everything we
could need, and a few extras that we loved like air conditioning and a
king size bed - two things I know, as an American living in France,
are hard to find here! We would recommend Tony and Carole's Bed and
Breakfast to anyone planning a trip to the south of France!
Lovely house in Montblanc - and what a charming town! Tony and Carol were marvelous hosts, loved the gourmet French breakfast on the terrace, and the Sunflower Suite is beautiful - wish we could have stayed longer! Will certainly return to take advantage of this charming residence!
We had a brilliant time with Tony and Carol. They have so many options to choose from, we picked the B&B with dinner and were not disappointed. Carol is a wonderful cook and on our first night produced a three course meal with very little notice - sorry Carol! They are intelligent, amusing and warm people with a wealth of stories, it was like going to a dinner party every night. We loved staying in the Sunflower Room, comfy bed and reliable wifi, secure parking for the bike. Enjoyed the pool, got to know the sweet dogs and will never forget the name Villa Roquette and the elephants in the trees, thanks to Tony's stories! Don't miss Tony's tour of Pezenas. Highly recommended!
