We cannot fault Villa de Mazamet at all. The house is beautiful, straight off the pages of Elle Deco but qt the same time homely. However, what truly makes this place wonderful is Mark and Peter. They are fantastic hosts....warm, welcoming, helpful and just utterly lovely. Food was divine, very reasonably priced and definitely recommended. Our teenage son raved about both the breakfast and evening meals and quite frankly as parents we are hiding our heads in shame that we can't replicate it!
A previous reviewer stated that Mark and Peter must have thought of all the "what if? " scenarios.... I agree.... They both bent over backwards to ensure our stay was perfect......and do you know what........it was! Thank you Peter and Mark, we wish you very success and we will be back.


On the scoring I refuse to mark down due to lack of fitness centre..... Don you trainers and run around the lovely town :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the deluxe balcony rooms.....beautiful!

Absolutely stunning building! The owners have tastefully decorated and furnished the villa to a very high standard. So comfortable and luxurious! Mark is welcoming and helpful and carries out his duties front of house efficiently and professionally. Peter slaves away in the kitchen to produce a very high standard of food and always makes time during the meal to pop out to speak to guests and find out if they are enjoying dinner. Together they make a very good team and work extremely hard to make sure that everything about your stay in the villa is perfect. We loved relaxing in the garden with other guests while enjoying a Gin & Tonic before dinner! We also loved the breakfasts each morning as they set us up nicely for the day of sightseeing ahead! Loved this place!

Room Tip: The rooms are all gorgeous but we stayed in room 6 and it had a huge bathroom with 2 sinks, great shower and big, deep free standing bath.

The only mistake we made about La Villa de Mazamet was staying only two nights! All of the reviews are accurate and it is indeed very difficult to come up with any different or original superlatives to describe this wonderful place. It is beautiful, immaculate, and serene. Mark and Peter must have brainstormed for years with "what ifs" to make sure every possible request or expectation could be met before opening this truly first class manor home. Mazamet’s website (and their pre-arrival communication with guests) is the most thorough of any establishment at which we've stayed in Europe. Your only question when you arrive should be "What are you serving for dinner tonight?" Before dinner, and weather permitting, guests are served their favorite beverage outside. If you like wine, ask for one of their local selections. While we were enjoying wine in the gazebo, I was thinking of how soon we could come back for a longer stay!

We are not novices to wine generally, or to French wine in particular. Mark and Peter have put together the kind of wine list that we love. Most of the wines are locally sourced, the selections are well researched, very reasonably priced, and both gentlemen are very familiar with each producer. It is a place where you can feel comfortable asking them to select a wine to be served with dinner and know that you are in for a treat. Dinner was truly amazing! It was presented beautifully and was delicious.

These two can turn on a dime and are gracious to boot. They are generous with their time and attention. Mark suggested a day trip to Saint Chinian about 45 minutes away where there is an outdoor market on certain days. The scenery in and around Saint Chinian, especially the surrounding vineyards, is beautiful, and the wines from Saint Chinian are exceptional. Unfortunately, you rarely see wines from the Saint Chinian appellation imported to the US.

Mark and Peter do it all (or almost all) running the manor home and they seem to orchestrate every task with the moves of a symphony conductor. Bravo and merci beaucoup for an extraordinary stay!

If you're planning a visit to the Languedoc-Rousillon region of France, guys- this is the place! That is, of course, assuming you like this sort of thing: a small, elegant historic inn with all the modern conveniences, swimming-pool, etc. The thing that really makes it though, is the 2 fellows who own and run it, Mark & Peter. The way that they look after their guests' comfort is quite special, always allowing you your privacy while at the same time making sure that you have everything that you want or need. Like the extra towels and the "honesty-bar" at the pool. (There's a little fridge there with a notebook on top. You want a drink? Just sign for it in the little book. There's nobody bothering you.) Now, the food: Peter is this totally amazing chef. He introduced us to the 4-course dinner, of which the 3rd course (for you non-sophisticates) is, naturally, cheese. Joanne & I have tried to bring this habit home with us, although it's sometimes hard to duplicate when your local supermarket offers, basically, American cheese, "yellow or white!" Still, we are endeavoring to follow Peter's example. I've downloaded from their web-site the recipe for his fabulous "Lamb Tagine," and will attempt it myself if I'm feeling brave. What else? Oh- they'll tell you about cool historical places to visit every day (Carcasonne, etc.) and about good places to take your morning exercise (the pretty Lac du Montagne) and keep you abreast of the local Mazamet goings-on (concerts in the park, town fetes, etc.) Lastly, the other folks staying at this inn seem, in my experience, to be a very friendly lot. Many from Britain, Scotland, Australia, etc. so we were able to break-out our High School French gradually, and could speak English "at home." Run, don't walk!

4 nights here wasn't enough but we were the following le tour de France "en moto", in July 13 so had to drag ourselves away. Magnificent villa, wonderful hosts & delicious grub. The Black Mountain area took us by surprise & we had some crackin' trips out on our motorbike, which our hosts let us lock up in their garage each night; most appreciated. Can't wait to return & with a railway station a minute walk away what better opportunity for a French rail trip. Many thanks to Peter & Mark for a memorable stay.
