We had driven virtually across France. Starting from Leipzig, Germany as we travelled south the air became balmier, sunnier and French. However our dilly dallying, taking in the French ambience and cuisine made us late for our hotel arrival time. After passing the village of Quilaln twice we finally pulled up outside La Chaumiere at three a.m. There was not a soul in sight. We tinkled the bell. Nothing. Almost resigning ourselves to sleeping in the car we heard the sound of voices coming from down the street. The voices were that of the cafe owner a block down from the hotel La Chaumiere. In our falting, school age French we explained our sitatuion. The cafe owner rang La Chaumiere and the owner opened up for us. The air outisde had chilled and our tired muscles welcomed the warm shower, luxurious beds and beautiful decor.. It was a great place to satge daytrips around the beautiful Languedoc.and the staff were friendly and very accomodating and hospitable. La Chaumiere had a family friendly feel that we really enjoyed and with our four year old in tow this was one quality that stood out for us. Not to far from the Mediterranean coast and set in the foothills of the Pyrenees, La Chaumiere is my dream hotel come true.
