Villa Roquette
Ranked #1 of 2 Montblanc B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We were struggling to find a b&b for our overnight while driving through the southern center of France. After 4 towns & not having any success, we inquired at a restaurant in Montblanc. The gracious hostess connected us with Carole Tidswell, the owner of the only b&b. After a few wrong turns with the crazy maze of one-way streets, we found her home! Our small suite, named the Poppy for its red hallway & decor, was on the second floor. We had a comfy queen bed, a large bath with a good shower/tub, & a separate toilet room, plus a little balcony overlooking the gardens. The room & villa was pleasantly decorated with original art works. Carol & Tony were wonderful hosts who made you feel a part of the family. Our breakfast was served in the garden & was casual with lots of interesting conversation. We enjoyed our first night so much, we asked about staying a second, which we were able to do. There was also free use of a washing machine which was timely for altering the mass of dirty laundry in our suitcases. (The laundry dried quickly in the warm sunshine on the outdoor lines.) We found our stay with the Tidwells to be very pleasant & fun. We enjoyed sipping a local wine with them as we visited in their gardens after our day of sightseeing. Carole even brought out pizza to share with her guests as we enjoyed the company of other guests & our hosts. It's difficult to find overnight facilities in this area as the French have rules against signage. No wonder we were having problems! The Tidwells are British & have lived in France for more than 16 years, so it was good to have hosts who easily understood us & we didn't have to struggle with our limited French vocabulary. The Villa Roquette was a great find as we meandered our way across the South of France. We highly recommend you find this little town & friendly hosts.

Wonderful accommodation and ideally located with easy access to the coast and many places of interest. Excellent hosts too - friendly and welcoming whilst still allowing guests space to do their own thing! Spacious rooms, comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. Parking also no problem. A couple of excellent restuarants very nearby - but also good food available on site! Carole is an excellent cook! Only 10-15 minutes drive takes you into Pezenas which has a wealth of shops bars and restaurants.

We spent 5 nights at Villa Roquette in mid March staying in the Rose apartment. Our apartment was an ideal base for touring and discovering the area, was comfortable and peaceful, equipped with everything we could need including an exceptionally comfortable bed and excellent shower!
Tony and Carole were superb hosts and we greatly appreciated their company and sharing their extensive local knowledge which was so freely given.
The atmosphere at Villa Roquette is congenial and relaxed offering the opportunity for privacy or pleasant conversation and a glass of wine with other guests and Tony and Carole as desired.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return very soon.

Although a regular visitor to the Pezenas area, this was the first time I have stayed as a guest in a bed and breakfast in the Languedoc. And what a first visit. Villa Roquette is a lovely chambres d'hotes in a typical French maison de village with gardens and a swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and have been well thought out in order to cater for individuals through to large families, as well as being available as self-contained apartments. Tony and Carole are the perfect hosts and willing and able to respond to any request or question whether about your stay, the Languedoc, the internet and general knowledge quizzes! The village of Montblanc is the perfect location for visiting Pezenas, Beziers, Cap d'Agde and the surrounding areas as well as giving easy access to the rest of the beautiful Languedoc. I was only able to stay two nights but I will be back to see them very soon, whether it be for bed and breakfast or coffee with friends!
Thanks again, Carole and Tony.

My husband, his mother, and I stayed at Villa Roquette last June/early July in the Rose Apartment. We did need a car to get around to bigger towns and beaches, but there was a bakery and small grocery store within walking distance. The apartment was very comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed travelling to nearby markets and historical sites, like the Pont du Gard and Colisseum in Nimes. If we ever return to the area, we would stay again.

" Villa Roquette was my first experience with Chambre d'Hote, aka Bed and Breakfast. I am retired and thought it would be worth a try since it sounded like such a nice place. And it IS a nice place. A great first experience for me and my husband (we like privacy that is why we never went for it). Tony and Carole are wonderful hosts and great company and to top it off great chefs. They prepared a special vegetarian dinner for me. Tony had good advice about which wine to buy, which we did and he was right. We drank some and and stored the rest (in our place in Provence). The small town of Montblanc is very pleasant, the rooms in the villa are very nicely furnished with personal touches, comfortable, and very clean. We will go back again. Jeannette and Gus
