We used this fantastic hotel as a base to venture around the Languedoc area. The majestic fortress of Carcassonne is a must-see. Narbonne, Montpellier and Perpignan are a scenic drive away and offered a taste of southern towns in France. Chateaus of Peypertus and Salses are also mere minutes away, historically rich and colourful. We even took a drive across the spanish border and back for a taste of catalonia. Essentially, we covered all I set out to see on our itinerary during our 5 night stay.
Every moment we had in the hotel was faultless. Service was discrete, warm and unquestionably helpful. The standard complimentary breakfasts were something my wife and I looked forward to as the pastries and breads were baked in-house and were brilliant. They were using old tradtional recipes of the french mediterranean and I think I got a taste of more than I've had in a lifetime. I just know I'll never have a taste of the same unless i return to this hotel one day *sigh*
This is quite a hidden secret and I have a feeling that they like to keep it that way. It's peaceful, villagey and still has all the modern facilities of any city hotel. As a frequent traveller who's seen quite a fair bit, I know when I've found a hidden gem and this is it. FYI, we booked the Merlot. It's large, multi-levelled, beautifully furnished... simply brilliant!
