Interaction with guests

We live next door and are happy to offer advice and suggestions but do not intrude

The neighborhood

Montblanc is a typical Languedoc winegrowing village, surrounded by vineyards, and with great local shops and services. We have 2 bakeries, small supermarket, fruit and veg shop, chemist, post office, bar and restaurant.

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.

Carole and Tony are a lovely couple, sharing their wonderful house with us. This sharing is not even noticed, we felt completely free and relaxed. Both are great hosts, the hosue has all it takes for you to have a great holiday. The pool is very, very nice at higher temperatures. Highly recommended: a workshop wet plate photography at Tony's.

Staying here was just what we needed! A break from stress in a lovely area, village and with Carole's lovely family at hand to make us feel welcome. The Rose apartment had everything we needed for our 10 day stay and the added bonus was that our dog 'Peaches' got on really well with Rocky and Helios. Carole and Tony were both very helpful with their local knowledge. Thank you so much. We will be telling everyone about it!

Lovely place and really nice house. We arrived late in the evening but didnt have any problems with the keys, Carole also bought something to drink and eat, so we had a really good start. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning worked :) So we felt comfortable. The only thing we didnt like so much was the swimming pool,maybe it was not ready on that time. We missed the love and details what you can see in the house... We recommend it!

Tony and Carol were delightful hosts. The apartment is very comfortable and we enjoyed our 5 night stay immensely. The apartment in Montblanc is centeraly located and a great base from which to explore the Languedoc.

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.
