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.

We live in the house and are happy to help with information etc but do not intrude
This is large house, and also our home. Tony and I live here permanently,
as does Tony's elderly mother. We have lived here for 13 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 are child-friendly and dog-friendly.
