No need to beat around the bush, if you're reading this GO and STAY at L'Abbaye de Camon. Book right now, there's no need to look elsewhere.

Delightfully picturesque with splendid surroundings, coupled with fantastic food and a wonderfully convivial but understated atmosphere. Will most certainly be heading back.

My wife and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at L'Abbaye Chateau De Camon. What a wonderful experience! First of all the town of Camon is tiny with only 150 residents but at the time we visited there was an explosion of roses which were magnificent.

L'Abbaye is authentically ancient but with excellent hotel services such as fine sheets and modern bathrooms. The owners, a delightful young couple, take great pride in the service and comfort of their guests.

The food is fantastic - and the service in both the hotel and dining rooms is equal to the finest hotels.

The gardens and pool area are beautiful. We explored most of the Cathar castles and the chateau is perfectly situated for these jaunts.

The entire area for about 1.5 hours drive around the chateau is exquisitely beautiful countryside with none of the decay of modern civilization. If you are looking for a truely wonderful experience the chateau is the place to stay.

Having just returned from the most beautiful weekend I cant help but be a little sad to be home!

Friends had their wedding at L'Abbaye & I was lucky to stay there for 3 days. We all felt truly like it was a home from home, the family & staff were so welcoming, the food was amazing & they really gave us a few days to remember.

The gardens are stunning, the views unbeatable, the pool (a little chilly but very refreshing!!) & all in all an experience I will repeat

I could go on and on but brevity can be equally effective.

This simply is the nicest hotel guesthouse I have ever stayed in.

The building, the hosts, the food, the surroundings, tariff. Magic.

Go!

This must be one of the most beautiful places to stay in the area. Not only is the accomodation in one of the most stunning historic buildings you can imagine, but the welcome is totally professional. Warm and informal, without being offhand or obtrusive the staff and owners do everything they can to make sure your stay is perfect.
Make sure you book for dinner because the food is outstanding.

This is a B&B with the luxury feel of a top boutique hotel, which means you can really relax and enjoy the family atmosphere, while experiencing surroundings that few hotels can match, and food that ranks with the best.

Welcomed like dear old friends into a fabulous vaulted and ornate abbey chateau with gorgeous bedrooms and set in beautiful grounds in Cathar country - what more could one want?
Well, throw in wonderful, elegantly genial young hosts (Katie - think Darryl Rivers, Head girl at Mallory Towers & Peter - think Ben Fogle cross with a young David Attenborough), add the most divine dining experience...and you have the nearest thing I have found to perfection.

ps don't come here if you want to smoke, shout loudly into your mobile, conduct business, wear jeans or shorts for dinner or complain about anything - at least don't come when I'm there & I'm off tomorrow for my third visit this summer.

If you're looking for an extremely peaceful bolthole in beautiful rural France, then L'Abbaye Chateau de Camon is for you. On entering this historic mediaeval abbey, you get a real sense of sanctuary in an amazingly romantic setting. This is supported by the truly wonderful, highly personal yet relaxed service you receive from host-proprietors Peter and Katie Lawton. Together with their small yet highly professional team, they made our week-long stay unforgettable.

All 16 bedrooms could quite easily grace the cover of any decor magazine, and the finishing touches of top quality bedlinens and soft, goose down pillows ensured we had a great night's sleep every night.

Waking up to birdsong every morning was a treat, as were the amazingly tasty breakfasts of fresh breads, croissants and fruits. The Abbaye doubles up as a restaurant in the evenings, where you can expect inventive Michelin-style home cooking from Tom, the brilliant in-house chef.

All in all, a magical place which I would recommend to anyone looking for a tranquil break in romantic surroundings with elements of luxury at an affordable(ish) price.
