My husband and I spend 1.5 months travelling by car through southern France and Tuscany Italy visiting are top picks from Sawdays "Go Slow" B & B books. We stayed at some wonderful places but Villelongue Cote Jardins was by far our favourite - so much so that we travelled 12 hours in one day just to stay an extra... More

Maybe due to our poor French, we had a bit of a strange 'welcome' but all was quickly sorted and we were shown to a very nice, very large, upstairs room with lovely antique furniture, plush carpets - very nice. It just lacked decent lighting. The room faced the street but was not noisy as the road is very seldom... More

Not I suspect a place for everyone but, for those who like what it has to offer, it is indeed lovely and unusual. First the lovely: huge rooms - and I mean huge. Mine had a vast “double” bed, large on suite bathroom and enough space for a squash court to not be out of place in the far corner.... More

We loved staying here in such a tranquil location and were sorry to leave. Claude and Renee are lovely, warm, friendly hosts and made good recommendations for trips. We liked our very spacious room and very comfortable bed. We really enjoyed our meals with plenty of wine and good conversation and trying to speak French, with our hosts (we also... More

We have been twice now and will soon be visiting for a third time. Such a lovely place and lovely hosts. We can't visit France without coming back. I cannot think of a nicer place to stay. Exceptional.

We have overnighted at Villelongue Cote Jardins two years in a row, so much did we enjoy our first visit in June last year. We were equally delighted this year. The rooms take your breath away because of their size. They are also most interestingly furnished; bathrooms are excellent. Everything is immaculately clean; the garden out the back is a... More

We stayed a night with Claude and Renée on our way down to Spain - this is a truly romantic place, their home is the remaining part of the monastery attached to the now ruined Abbey, hidden in a secret valley.....it was the perfect, quiet spot to get a peaceful night, and as this was early February, we didn't want...

Our stay at Villelongue Cote Jardin was the highlight of our recent trip to France. Its location next to an 12th century Cistercian abbey in the Languedoc countryside is peaceful and relaxing and its spacious and beautifully furnished rooms make it a wonderful destination as well as an excellent base for Carcassonne and surrounding towns, foothills of the Pyrenees, Mediterranean...

Villelongue Cote Jardin is a wonderful example of rural French living. My wife and I spent 2 nights here as the guests of Claude & Renee, we had a large comfortable room with a modern bathroom. Food was outstanding. If you want solitude this would be a good choice. Highly recommended.
