A very good b&b, hosts were very friendly and helpful, we only stayed one night and had dinner which was excellent, breakfast was also very good, weather was not kind to us but the owners let us watch the world cup on their TV which was very nice, all in all a very pleasant stay

We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at Le Vieux Relais. It is in a great location for touring this beautiful area. A warm welcome, clean rooms, a wonderful shower and good food in a charming and characterful house. This is a gem!
Thanks to Val for advice on seeing the beautiful village of Minervois, arranging our boat trip on the Canal du Midi and and reserving an excellent local restaurant - and not forgetting Val's home made cake served on the terrace beside the swimming pool!

We stayed in the historic and comfortable Le Vieux Relais bed and breakfast owned and managed by our British hosts Val and Mike. They were most helpful in our quest to find a small place of our own in this beautiful part of France. Their inn is charming and Mike is an excellent cook, while Val gave great advice on our search. Both know so much about the village of Pepieux and regional attractions.

My wife brother and I spent a week in the south of France. We had originally booked to stay at Le Vieux Relais for 3 nights but enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our stay for a further night. We could easily have spent the entire week there but wanted to move to a different area. The rooms were en suite, spotlessly clean, spacious, airy, beautifully decorated and had really comfortable beds. Breakfast was plentiful and the evening food was delicious especially as it was accompanied by terrific local wines. The location was very good as Carcasonne, Minerve, the coast and the Canal du midi were all comfortably within range. We were made to feel very much at home and Val´s knowledge of the area was a real bonus. We will definitely be returning soon.

My wife and i stayed 4 days at Le Vieux Relais. Nothing was too much trouble. In an unobtrusive way Val and Mike gave advice on where to go and what to see Our room was large and immaculate; the food outstanding ( ask for Val's chocolate cake).. If marks are to be awarded out of 10, Le Vieux Relais would receive 11. It was one of the best B & B's in France we have ever stayed in

We stayed in Le Vieux Relais for 4 nights at the beginning of September. This chambre d'hote perfectly combines original features and a real feeling of authenicity along with all the modern comfort one needs after a day of exploring medieval villages! The room was immaculate, extremely spacious and I loved the details like the wooden shutters and beams!

The location of Le Vieux Relais was good for exploring the Languedoc and was handy for so many beautiful sites and things to do. Val and Mike have a great knowledge of the area and are happy to advise on what is worth doing. We got to see some fabulous little villages we would have missed without their help.

We dined in with Val and Mike on the evening we arrived. The food and company was fantastic and it was a nice way to relax after a few hectic days in Paris. We ate in local restaurants, recommended by Val and Mike for the other evenings and we were not disappointed.

All in all a fabulous place to experience life in a French village and to explore some spectular scenary, wrapped up with the benefits of local knowledge.
