“The best vacation experience ever!”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

This was my first trip to Europe and I could not have asked for a better experience! The service was outstanding. The tour guides, Penny and Rochelle, were amazing. They made sure I had everything I needed, were professional, and yet I feel like I've made two new friends.

Montfaucon is in an excellent location. The town of Limoux is within walking distance. It has several fun shops and great restaurants. It's also within a short driving distance to several tourist sites. Penny and Rochelle added to the experience with their knowledge of the villages and the sites we went to.

The hotel is very inviting, warm and comfortable. There is a great view of the river from the terrace. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. One of my favorite memories is sleeping with the shutters and windows open and seeing a beautiful sunrise in the morning.

The dining room was set beautifully for breakfast and for dinners and the food was amazing! The staff was so friendly and accommodating.

Being a wife and mother I'm usually taking care of everyone. But this trip was a special treat...they took care of me! Thank you everyone at Montfaucon!

Room Tip: Ask for a room where you can see the river. Three stories-no elevators. Ask for room on a lower floo...

I bring a group of painters to paint in the Languedoc each summer and we always stay at Montfaucon. The staff and service are top notch and the accommodations are 5 star.
The house is beautifully furnished and the rooms are large and also wonderfully decorated.

The entire week went much too fast. Between bike rides to lovely villages through rolling vineyards and fields of sunflowers ready to burst and guided tours to Cathar castles and villages, it wouldn't seem that there could be time for three-hour lunches and elegant, candle-lit dinners, but somehow the staff managed everything perfectly and each meal was a French feast. Visits to Carcassone, Minerve, Queribus, Alet-les-Bains stimulated our minds and trips to the farmer's market in search of sausage, cheese, bread, pate fed our palates. In addition, Montfaucon has a chef who created unique meals when we were a maison. The interior staircase is a sculptural masterpiece and the bedrooms are elegantly furnished. A treasure and wonderful to share with old friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, river view especially.

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at Montfaucon for a leisure stay.
Visiting Rennnes les Chateau, Grotte de Niaux, Montsegur, Foix and Alets les Bains,
all our tours were guided by two very friendly, highly experienced young ladies who are
in charge of directing tours at Montfaucon.
Montfaucon is located perfectly for visiting the Cathar country.
What unusual experiences and what a wonderful time we had!
Everything is thanks to all the staff members of Montfaucon!
Montfaucon offers all that you could wish for. You are treated as the celebrity of the
residence!

Room Tip: Rooms along the riverside

Ten of us planned a week at Montfaucon that included everything - transportation, food, wine, tours, etc. From the moment that Penny and Rochelle picked us up at the Toulouse airport, I knew we had made the right choice. Everything about the house was perfect - the furniture, the fabrics, the art and most of all the comfy beds. They took us to castles, farmers markets, wineries, and other historical sights with plenty of time for relaxing as well. Dinners were held at a hunting lodge, a castle and a Michelin star restaurant as well as a Medieval dinner prepared in the home's kitchen. Everything was planned to perfection. The charming town of Limoux is a short walk away and a delightful place to go for a morning cappuccino or a late night glass of wine. We can't wait to go back!

We were highly impressed with the beauty of the interior construction with its winding staircase, large beam ceilings and marble floors. It was like falling back in time as we entered through the front entry. The staff took care of all our needs with daily room service, breakfast served each morning with friendly smiles. Our tour guides treated us to outstanding places of interest throughout the area and soon became our best friends. This was truly the highlight of our vacation in France!!!

Room Tip: The top story rear rooms looking over the river.
