Our second trip to Olonzac, we loved it so much the first time with Kay and Mark, we had to come back. The area has so much to offer we hardly scratched the surface on our last visit. Last time we stayed in the apartment, which is fabulous. This time we booked a deluxe double room, which was just as... More

While looking for property in the Languedoc, Kay & Mark's B&B was recommended to us by one of our estate agents. And it was the best move that we made on that trip. Not only is the accommodation delightful combining the original features of a wine merchant's house with generous space and modern facilities, they are a really welcoming couple... More

We arrived at this delightful Chambres d' Hotes after a rather cramped seven day trip down the Canal du Midi. Mark and Kay gathered us in, made us feel totally relaxed in their beautifully French home. The rooms are large and the beds deliciously comfortable. Our hosts went beyond duty and helped make our stay the best experience ever.

My partner and I have stayed a couple of times at Sainte-Helene whilst visiting the area for work. Kay and Mark have always been so sweet and accommodating. The rooms are excellent, both a good size, very comfortable and styled perfectly. Breakfast is delicious with plenty of fresh pastries, fruit, cereal etc. The location is good, within a couple of...

I cannot say enough positives about this place, it was 10/10 for all of us. We booked 4 rooms as we were in town for a wedding. Normally in France, the rooms are old, dusty, and the bathrooms so small. This is beautifully clean, newly renovated, but still with all the French charm, and every little extra in your room....

I arrived in the charming town of Olonzac on a Friday afternoon in October, after walking about 150 km from Toulouse along the Canal du Midi. My plan was to meet friends & stay in a nearby rented house for the following week. Sainte-Helene Chambres d'Hotes is in the heart of Olonzac, a short walk from the village centre, cafés,... More

We spent four nights at this wonderful chambre d'hote in the delightful little town of Olonzac. Kay and Mark are excellent hosts with great knowledge of the area. Apart from our planned visit to Carcassonne we looked to Mark for local places of interest to visit that didn't involve spending too much time in the car each day. His suggestions... More

What else can I add? Mark and Kay make this beautiful B&B the most hospitable place to stay. Our sleep was interrupted by the loud tractors rolling down the street well before dawn. Rather than ignore the situation, our hosts acknowledged the early harvest, supplied us with wonderful breakfasts and made sure we enjoyed the company of everyone staying at... More

We loved our wonderful room, extremely comfortable bed, amazing linens. Our bathroom had a beautiful claw foot tub and was quite large. Mark and Kay were a wealth of information and recommendations, made reservations for us at a few delightful restaurants.

From the other reviews you already know that this is a special B&B. The real difference between this spot and anywhere else is made by the hosts Mark and Kay who go far and beyond to customize each guest's stay by providing local knowledge and assistance in getting the most out of your stay in the region.
