an excellent place to base yourself in to explore a beautiful part of France. The b&b is simply terrific - located in a quiet, lovely garden with a great swimming pool and yet only 5 minutes walk into Villefranche de Conflent, surely the most compact and perfect medieval walled little town in France, with a great selection of eateries Casa...

In case you are looking for incredibly sincere hospitality, a beautiful site and gorgeous rooms, this is the place to visit. The breakfast beats every single hotel-breakfast and the atmosphere is so calming. You can easily be friended with the house-pets, two gorgeous cats and a dog who will win everybody's heart. Would I return there - yes, in a... More

The B&B is just outside the village (5 minute walk) and is in a peaceful location beside the river. The bedrooms were well furnished and cosy and the rest of of the house has wonderful character. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious but best of all the hosts Aki and Pirkko were so lovely, warm and welcoming. We really enjoyed hearing... More

very cozy and comfortable room. Great location with fascinating points of interest, a medieval town, fortress overlooking the valley, breath taking mountains, ski slopes, hiking routes, rail road to the mountains etc. Breakfast was tasty and presented with a cozy finesse. Hosting couple were very attentive, friendly and always in good spirits.

Casa Penalolen is a really charming B&B with just 4 rooms, very quite and nice. It's five minutes away from the centre of Vilafranche, that you can reach walking through a nice path. It's also close to the train station (about 2 minutes), where you can get the Train Jaune. We stayed there for two nights and we had a... More

Lovely room in a family home in a great location near to the station, the hosts were very helpful in providing recommendations on what to do and where to eat. The room was very comfortable with a clean en suite. The only downside was the smell of smoke on the bedding causing breathing problems for my boyfriend. But great location... More

This b&b has the most beautiful views and is only a five minute walk from the station where you can catch le Petite Train Jaune up into the mountains. The hostess is lovely and welcoming, and I felt immediately like we'd stepped into the house of a distant french relative. Breakfast is as you'd imagine. Think fresh chocolate croissants and...

The beautiful walled city, Fort Liberia and Casa Penalolen were highlights of our recent trip to France. Mireille is a charming hostess and we enjoyed the quiet, comfortable room and delicious breakfast.

At home in a beautiful retreat thanks to our friendly hostess Mireille and Esteban. Believe me, sometimes not even at home we receive such a nice treat. I wish I could live there.

We stayed here for two nights with our two boys (6 and 10). Mireille and her husband Esteban went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They were very welcoming of our family. The grounds are beautiful and it's an easy walk to the village. The boys enjoyed playing soccer on the lawn and exploring the river. It... More
