Great location. Very close to the train station and a only short walk from the town, fort Liberia, and the caves, but at the same time so quiet and peaceful and with lovely views that you feel like you're in the middle of the countryside. The pool is particularly handy on a hot summer day and the hosts are very... More

Friendly welcome, spacious comfortable rooms, lovely gardens, good conversation, well behaved dog, good shower, short walk to great restaurant in the old town, handy for travelling on the Train Jaune. Breakfast was adequate. Nothing to fault.

Our four night stay in Villefranche-de-Conflent was thoroughly enjoyable and very relaxing - made all the more memorable by our very helpful hosts, Linda and Robert. They were very accommodating with little extra touches like expresso coffee and early breakfast when we had an early train to catch on the last day. The B and B is in a perfect... More

very welcoming hostess, met up with a beer and a glass of wine. Dutch owner who speaks excellent english. Short pleasant walk to the village. Very close to the yellow train. While your there go to L'Odyssey restaurant - michelin star quality but without the price tag.

Stayed early September 2014. Linda and Robert excellent hosts and very helpful when we needed to organise an urgent medical appointment. The house is just a short walk to the town of Villefranche de Conflent and offers more breathing space than the walled town probably offers :-) Thanks again. Gerry and Larissa.

We stayed 3 nights after a Med cruise and found it a perfect way to wind down before going back to reality! Linda and Robert are wonderful hosts, Linda even lent me her hair dryer when mine quit, and they offered lots of good advice on restaurants, driving directions, etc. Being an animal lover I was totally in my element...

Linda & Robert are the most perfect hosts...our room was wonderful..spacious, comfortable & had a fantastic view. We... More

Linda and Robert are the best hosts in the world <3 ! This was our second visit and we hope the third will be soon. Igor and Lola and the cats took our hearts as well as the horses and chickens. And the old stonehouse itself is from a farytale!

We only stayed for a long weekend, but wish it had been longer. Robert and Linda are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We had a great room with a huge terrace. Plenty to eat for breakfast which was very tasty. Well positioned with a short walk into the town and close to the station to catch the... More
