I spent four days at La Souqueto, staying in John & Mel's houseboat docked on the Canal du Midi. The boat, Bella Mia, is a beautifully refurbished private cruiser with a bedroom, a living room, a fully working bathroom and a kitchen. From the boat, we could walk down the Canal to the next village over, or sit on deck... More

Jonathan and Melanie were fantastic hosts - accommodating, thoughtful, and knowledgeable on the area. The B&B is centrally located and makes a perfect base for exploring the Languedoc region – Canal du Midi, copious vineyards, mountains, sea, cities, villages. From the B&B you can take a quiet walk (run/cycle) along the tree-lined canal that leads to the Canal du Midi.... More

From the moment you step inside La Souqueto you feel as if you're home! You become part of John and Mel's family! I came to teach french to a group( mainly Irish) and our school was in the attic. We had so much fun! In the afternoons we went on excursions with John and Mel ferrying us around. In the... More

We have just come back from a 4 night stay at the beautiful La Souqueto in Mirepeisset. It has to be the perfect retreat. Situated a very short walk to the Canal du Midi it is ideal for walkers, cyclists, or anyone who wants a rustic retreat which gives great access to mountains, forest, coast or gorgeous villages with bustling...

Four friends and myself stopped over at La Souqueto in September 2013 and received a wonderful warm welcome from Jonathan and his wife. The accommodation is situated in a quiet location, with comfortable rooms and a superb breakfast. Breakfast was in the very welcoming kitchen diner area and Jonathan & Co could not have been more helpful. If they are... More

Stayed with a group of friends at La Souqueto and we were all so impressed by the hospitality of the owners, John and Mel, who couldn't do enough to make us all welcome. The breakfasts were superb, with locally baked croissants, home made breads and jams, fruit compotes and yoghurts - utterly delicious! The house itself is beautifully renovated with... More

We spent a week in La Souqueto during August 2013. To say we totally enjoyed ourselves is to understate our experience. The classic French decor of the house, the family atmosphere made this such an enjoyable stay. The facilities were first class. The bed was extremely comfortable and inviting after each busy day. Mel and Jon were such fun and... More

This beautifully renovated farmhouse is situated in a lovely French town. Mel and Jon were the perfect hosts and gave us lots of ideas about places go. They also had a lot of excellent restaurant recommendations. My favourite excursion was one we made to Minerve, an absolute must!
