I am not usually prone to writing reviews but I had to put virtual pen to paper after spending five wonderful days and nights at La Souqueto. We have not been to this part of France before and so were excited as to what it would be like. So, what did we find? The answer was a bit of everything for everbody. La Souqueto itself is a stunningly converted four storey house with character oozing from every wall. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfortable that siestas were a late afternoon essential! Jon and Mel (not forgetting Jasper) were the perfect hosts with good knowledge of the area, excellent breakfasts and great recommendations as to where to eat.
So, what did we do? There was 10 kilometre kayaking on a local river through a gorge with the best scenery (with small sections of white water to make life interesting!). For the beginners, you also do a 5k course and for the more adventurous, there was a 15k version; there was the incredible village of Minerve and the walks from there down into the gorge where we swam in the many rock pools-perfect to cool off; there was the beach at Narbonne with literally the warmest sea I have ever been in and, of course, not forgetting the spring-fed river not two minutes walk from La Souqueto which is clear as a bell and deep enough to swim and dive into. All this plus the canal (and the tapas bar) just a short walk away, made this a truly memorable stay. We will be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Souqueto, an award winning B&B, is a sensitively restored town house situated in the centre of a quiet, medieval village in the heart of the Languedoc!

Take a cruise (or sleep) on our Classic boat Bella Mia on the Canal du midi, a few minutes walk from our back door, swim in the crystal clear water of the river Cesse behind the house or head for the wonderful beaches on The Med, only 30 mins from the village. We are surrounded by vineyards and wine Caves for wine tasting and if it's food you have come to sample we know some the the very best, yet cost effective restaurants to eat at.
