If you visit southern France; Languedoc and Marseillan in particular you should try to book a room at Janne Larsson’s Rue Galilee. The hospitality (Janne & Sara are Amazing!!) the rooms, the Swedish Carpe Diem beds and the breakfast are all superb. We also had the opportunity to try Janne’s smoked salmon dinner and it was the best we have ever had! Don’t just take my word for it, even the NY Times agrees with me and wrote a great article about Rue Galilee recently.
Arrived in a frazzle after losing our way several times and finding no place to park, only to arrive at this gem of a B&B totally by chance ( ok, having read the article in the New York Times). Greeted by owner, manager Janne, who seated us in comfy chairs in the bar/ lobby, served us drinks and yes, they had a room available. Bliss- from the most comfortable beds you could dream of, large and well-equipped bathroom. The room itself an eclectic mix of opulence(trailing velvet curtains) and austerity( stone walls). Best of all though, the personal and attentive service by Janne and Sarah. A bit on the expensive side, but worth every penny. We’ll definitely be back
This is a very nice B&B, where we stayed for a few nights in April in conjunction with organised wine tours. The owner Janne is a very nice host and he told us that he had renovated the house himself and made it into this luxury B&B. It is obvious that he cares about quality, both for the rooms and the service. The bed was very comfortable and the location is a small and quiet street, which means that you sleep very well here. Breakfast was very good and generous and consisted of for example cold cut meat, different types of cheese, herring and salmon, fresh fruit, yoghurt, baguettes, croissants (fresh from the bakery each morning) and also Danish style rye bread. The room was clean and wifi worked well. As it’s an old house all rooms are not exactly the same and the one we got had quite a small wash basin in the bathroom, but that was acceptable as everything else was so great in this place. The restaurant on site that serves dinner is excellent (I write a separate review on that) and there is also a bar. We like southern France and want to visit Languedoc again, and if we do then Rue Galilée will definitely be in our itinerary. Highly recommended!…
Rue Galilee is a small hotel with only five bedrooms but has been created with a commendable eye for detail. Its Swedish owner, Jani, has imported luxury beds from Sweden and the rooms are equipped to four star standard. The air con is quiet and efficient. Jani speaks excellent English and is charming company. Breakfast is a delight of fresh fruits, cheese, meats, bread and pastries with hot food also available. The streets in Marseillan's old town are very narrow and we choose to park in a free public car park as advised on the hotel's website and walked the 5-10 minutes to the hotel - no problem.
Everything about this hotel is absolutely delightful. The proprietors are delightful, the rooms are beautiful and come with exceptionally comfortable beds and good lighting, and the breakfast is outstanding. The only small hick here are the key-code door locks, which are complicated to use, but we'll happily stay here again the next time we're in Marseillan, a lovely little town.
