Where to start. Benedicte is a wonderful host. Building is so ancient and beautiful and REAL. Room decorated as if back in time. Gardens to die for. Boules court. Lots of private sitting areas. Heated pool. Large hot tub. Even an outdoor ping pong table and indoor billiards room! Also offer gites which are perfect for longer stays. Town itself... More

We have stayed here 4 times in the last years. It is one of the most beautiful B&B`s we ever visited. Beautiful rooms, nice atmosphere, a very good breakfast, a wonderfull garden with a good swimming pool. We will be back here in the future.

We returned again,this time to a different newly renovated gite. We appreciated a daily swim as it was very hot in July, and sought shade pool side or in the lovely garden. Olonzac is a lively wee town and we like the quiet and privacy of the gites and gardens with the liveliness of the local bars and restaurants a... More

This time in late September, delighted to learn the pool was now heated,and we certainly enjoyed our daily swims. Also pleased to learn that there plans to update the gites, I hope they still retain their lovely character . As usual Bene and Freddy were excellent hosts if you needed any assistance and as usual they had time to share... More

This was a very welcome surprise after a hot and long day's cycling. The hosts were very friendly but the main attraction is the quirkiness of the establishment. It has a grand façade and feels like a throw back to another time. We were in the Colonial room decorated accordingly and with many interesting features. It has an extensive garden... More

This most charming Hotel & Gite in the centre of quaint Olonzac is second to none in hospitality and service! If you manage to rent one of the gites (always book well in advance), you are in a beautiful personal environment that is totally private. Yet, the Café de la Poste (and town centre) is 4 minutes away! Amazing place!... More

This was the best B&B we stayed in during our cycle along the Canal du Midi. A beautiful house very well appointed with a wonderfully friendly couple as hosts. The breakfast was superb (sadly they were full for dinner!) & we all really enjoyed the jacuzzi. Great place to stay....

Our last stay here was memorable! This time around, the owners, Béné and Freddy were suoerb, period! This is an oasis in the middle of a lovely village (Olonzac), yet, from our ''gite'' you are in the country! Fantastic! There are excellent restaurants and bars, like PUB LE FRANCE, available one block away! You are 5 minutes away from the... More

Stayed here only for one night and it is a wonderful quirky B&B. Laid back but professional and the garden is a joy. Didn't have the time for the pool but it looked lovely and we left before breakfast service but enjoyed a complimentary late night glass of very excellent red wine in the garden with the owner. It is... More

There seems to be a competition developing amongst gite guests as to who has visited/stayed most often. It is the combination of gites for 2, plus pool, garden etc, with the ease of being in a market town that suits . I am almost reluctant to co tinue to praise it again in case ot is fully booked next year.
