There were 4 of us traveling, which required two singles and a twin room, a tall order to fill. Out hosts Roy and Jo (and their two friendly dogs) were welcoming and greatly facilitated our travels from serving us breakfast at our preferred times to furnishing us with walking poles for the mountain climbs to Jo’s doing our laundry (we...

Such a beautiful building and charmingly furnished. Perfect location for Esperaza and surrounds. We booked a room by phone at short notice (same day) and our family of 5 were put up for a very reasonable price in a huge room, with ensuite, overlooking the river. It is difficult to find accommodation for 5 that doesn't mean a high price... More

First class B&B. Excellent hosts, very friendly & gave us invaluable advice on places to see & routes to take. Breakfast was wonderful and the bread was the best I tasted while we were in France. Would.definitely stay again if we planned to revisit the area. The Creperie & restaurant Le Saint Gobain were excellent.

I was fortunate enough to locate this B and B and stay here for 2 nights although I wish I had been able to stay longer. This quaint B and B is ideally situated nearby the beautiful Aude river and is conveniently located for easy and central access to many nearby interesting historical sites and landscape treasures. Within a half... More

Stayed four days, loved the experience. Welcoming hosts, close to RLC and other interesting sites, outstanding breakfast. Was there for the Sunday market, right outside, another fantastic experience. A new restaurant has just opened, "Le Saint Gobain", easy to find and whilst still in its infancy, can only add to the holiday. Can highly recommend a stay here.

Very good B&B. The hosts were very welcoming. They have two dogs. One is a rescue dog and is a little afraid of males because of bad treatment in the past. I mean male humans by the way. The breakfast is good. Evening meals are not served and the local restaurants are average.

We stayed here for 2 nights in August. The B&B is located in an old building close to the river in the beautiful, old village of Esperaza. We chose to stay here since it is a short drive away from Rennes-le-Chateau and a couple of Cathar castles we visited. This home has been beautifully decorated by Roy and Jo who... More

Located between the Aude and the Ariege regions in southern France, La Maison de la Riviere in Esperaza offers easy access to sites in both regions. Roy and Jo were genuinely warm, welcoming, and informative about the sites and opportunities in the Languedoc region of southern France. An avid walker and skier, Roy offered first hand knowledge of the region.... More

Jo and Roy were the perfect hosts, offering both their warm hospitality and Roy's in depth knowledge of the area's history. Our spacious and beautifully furnished room, with its French balcony overlooking the river, was the perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine in the evenings before going out to dine. Each day began with a bountiful breakfast... More

We spent 4 days in this lovely, charming and calm house, tastefully renovated and decorated. We stayed in a huge and cosy room with balcony facing the river and with a modern bathroom. And we agree, the beds are really comfortable. The rich breakfast was fresh and delicious. Roy was the perfect host, always considerate, taking care, recommending near by... More
