Description

The Space

Bed and Breakfast

The Poppy bedroom has a standard double bed, airconditioning and a television. The bathroom has a tub with full fitted shower, and handbasin. The WC is separate. The bedroom overlooks our sunny rear garden and terraces.

Breakfast - this is included in the rental price and is served in the garden or in our salon. We offer coffee / tea / chocolate with croissants, bread, butter, jams, fresh fruits.

Our home is a 19th Century Maison de Maitre although some parts are much older. The house is built of solid stone with full modern insulation, so the house is warm in winter and cool in summer, however, we have fitted full central heating and air conditioning as, although winters are never severe, it can be chilly and, although summers are never unbearably hot, it is very pleasant to come home to a cool home after a hot day on the beach or visiting the many ancient street markets Languedoc has to offer.

Wifi is freely available with two systems; we can offer Ethernet connection for higher speeds.

Guest Access

Our garden, terraces and pool are all available for all our guests.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the house and are happy to help with information etc but do not intrude

The Neighborhood

Montblanc is a large winegrowing village, surrounded by vineyards. We are very lucky to have good shops just a few minutes' walk away - 2 bakeries, a small supermarket, butcher, chemist, greengrocers, hairdressers, beautician, and a weekly market. Plus there is a lively bar, a snack bar, pizza vendor, and a restaurant. The church is very pretty and worth a visit - there are free guided tours in the summer season, and also a tourist office.

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.

Other Things to Note

This 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.

Montblanc, France · Member since May 2010

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.
