“Wonderful place from which to tour the region”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

After staying one night in a hotel in Sommieres, we were pleasantly surprised by this wonderful, quiet and relaxing B&B. Clean and well maintained, with marvelous breakfasts and terrific hosts who went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed. Highest recommendation!

Set in beautify countryside, the house is old and beautiful with an air of distinguished tranquility. The rooms are cool and shaded from the strong sun and decorated as if they were your own. Katherine and Sylvain are unobtrusive but always available if you need help and great company if you want to talk. If we return to Sommieres we will certainly stay with them again.

Maison d'Hôtes La Boca is a lovely old attractive mannor house in nice grounds with a swimming pool. You can either rent one of the rooms in the house or the cottage which has three bedrooms.

The property is in the countryside about two killometers outside the lovely medieval town of Sommieres.

The place is oozing with character and the owners Katherine and Sylvain welcomed us and gave us breakfast even though we arrived at 11am after an early flight. They are extremely nice people - hospitable, attentive and very helpful.

We stayed in the small cottage as the rooms in the mansion were full. The bedroom was very clean and the double bed very comfortable. The bathroom was clean with a nice large bath and there was plenty of hot water. We had a nice kitchen with all facilities, our own terrace to eat outside and a sitting room with Satellite TV. There is also free WIFI.

We had dinner on two occasions and the cooking was excellent.

We will certainly go back to Maison d'Hôtes La Boca and and have no hesitation in recommending it

La Boca is a very special place - both for the beautiful house and grounds and for the delightful couple who run it. The ambience was very relaxed and stylish and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for our hosts who very quickly felt like friends. The breakfasts were perfect and sitting outside in the sunshine eating fresh figs was a wonderful experience. We would certainly like to visit again! John and Marnie, Lewes, England

La Boca is just the sort of small maison d'hotes you hope to find in France. It is very close to the interesting village of Sommieres (which provides very easy parking at the village entrance), the countryside is covered with vines and the mountains an easy drive away. The location is excellent - lots to do and see for a stay of several days, or convenient to the A9 for an overnight. The hosts give a very warm welcome and are ready to give advice for an interesting day trip. The home itself is charming and the rooms are large, beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and excellent bathrooms. Each room has its own place in the house separate from the others. The garden surrounding the home is private with beautiful mature trees, and the ancient building has graciously settled into its new life as a very special place to welcome guests. We look forward to a return visit one day.

Stayed two nights here. Midway between Nimes and Montpellier, and 20 minutes from the A 9 motorway, it's ideally placed for sightseeing in the region.

The B&B was once part of a vineyard estate. There's a large house and an attached family cottage. To find it take the D22 route out of Sommières, starting at the roundabout in front of the town's main entrance. The D22 heads out for about 2km; look for a grey electricity distribution tower on your left, then a lane on your right flanked by a tree with 'Mas Rouge' and 'La Boca' notices pinned to it.

Our room was in the cottage; in fact we had the cottage to ourselves, and could have used the kitchen if we had been so inclined. In season the cottage is rented out as a whole, but we paid only the B&B room-rate. Other rooms are in the house, where the main guest lounge and a satellite TV are located, and where breakfast is served. There is good, fast wifi internet access in the house, but not in the cottage.

Our room was simply furnished in rustic style. The bathroom was modern, with both shower and bath available. We found the bed and pillows comfortable, everything very clean, and the room wonderfully quiet overnight.

Breakfast was really excellent, taken with other guests at the house dining table. Breads and home-made cake were accompanied by yoghurt and local honey, and there was plenty of fruit on offer. The coffee was super.

The hostess will prepare an evening meal if requested in advance, and we joined 4 other guests and the owners for an excellent, convivial, 4-course dinner (including lots of local wine) on one of our nights. This was a memorable occasion; I just wish I could have remembered more of the French I learned so many years ago. The owners speak excellent English, by the way.

In fact the whole of our stay was memorable, most especially for the warmth of the welcome we got, and the absolute determination of the owners to do anything in their power to make sure their guests enjoy their stay at La Boca.
