If you want peace and quiet among the vineyards, this is the place for you. We had a well-appointed and extremely clean room overlooking the back garden and the fields beyond. Although it was not ensuite (to create one would have ruined the proportions of the room), our own immaculate shower room was just across the corridor.
Hanne, the German owner, was very friendly and a mine of useful information about the area. And she served the best continental breakfast we have ever eaten. Apart from the usual fresh croissants and French bread with homemade jams, we had ham, eggs, cheeses, fruit and even fish pate. After that you really didn’t need lunch.
The Manoir is value for money in an excellent location just to the north of Beziers and a 20 minute drive to either the coast (a bit touristy) or the hills, which boasted unspoilt French villages. A visit to the village of Rocquebrun with its Mediterranean garden perched high above the River Orb and to the Abbey of Valmagne are both highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our charming 18th Century property awaits. The house has been newly restored to provide superb, comfortable accommodation in a peaceful setting surrounded by rolling countryside of vineyards interspersed with fairy tale Chateaux. The property is situated in the small hamlet of Cabrerolles (which loosely translates as the home of frolicking lambs), 10 km north of Beziers with easy access from both the A 75 and A 9 motorways. The Mediterranean coast is only a 30 minutes drive away. ... more less
