The beautiful walled city, Fort Liberia and Casa Penalolen were highlights of our recent trip to France. Mireille is a charming hostess and we enjoyed the quiet, comfortable room and delicious breakfast.

At home in a beautiful retreat thanks to our friendly hostess Mireille and Esteban. Believe me, sometimes not even at home we receive such a nice treat. I wish I could live there. The house is spectacular, close to the train station and on a walking distance through a nice country road from the amazing medieval town that is Villefranche... More

We stayed here for two nights with our two boys (6 and 10). Mireille and her husband Esteban went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They were very welcoming of our family. The grounds are beautiful and it's an easy walk to the village. The boys enjoyed playing soccer on the lawn and exploring the river. It... More

We enjoyed our stay in this great small B&B, where our corner room was comfortable and incredibly clean and the hostess (Mireillie) and her husband (Esteban) were charming, helpful, and efficient. You will enjoy hearing the river rushing by just outside your windows. The town is well worth a day's visit, with its many ancient stone buildings surrounded by mountains... More

We spent three nights here in September and were really impressed with the hospitality and kindness of our hosts. The rooms were clean, bright, and spacious with great views of the mountains, the brook and the fort. This place is located a 5 minute walk away from the village center, so very convenient. Overall, the place exceeded our already high... More

Our family of 4, two adults and two teenage boys stayed at Casa Penalolen in August 2013. Mireille and her husband Esteban are the warmest, efficient and most thoughtful hostess and host we have ever encountered. From our first emails we were not disappointed. They went out of their way to accommodate two difficult allergies. They gave us advice regarding... More

We stayed at the wonderful Casa Penalolen in September '12. From the moment we arrived Mireille was friendly and helpful, advising on places to eat nearby and how to visit St Martin de Canigou (a must visit nearby and easy to get to via bus). Our room was lovely, overlooking the gardens and pool. A swim and some time on... More

Stayed for 2 wonderful nights in this B & B. Esteban and Mireille couldn't have been nicer and the house is spotlessly clean. We were lucky enough to have a room at the back of the house with a view of the fort, so did not hear any of the road noise. Do not hesitate to book here, you will... More

Lovely home right on the river but it is also right on the road. However, the road noise was minimal at night although I did sleep with earplugs. The location is great for the train station. It's not stated anywhere, at least not that I could find, but not all rooms have attached bathrooms. We were in Room 1 (per... More
