We hosted our wedding at Le Vieux Relais over 3 days. Val and Mike were wonderful at catering for our needs and for our extended family. They organised a paella lunch, the wedding day it self and a big breakfast for the day after the wedding. Val was able to organise essentials such as a hairdresser and wedding cake. Thank...

We stayed at Le Vieux Relais in late August 2014. We had been on a very fast paced sightseeing schedule, moving every 3 days or so. It was wonderful to arrive there and relax for a change. It is a very charming old coaching station. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Mike and Val could not have made...

We were lucky to stay on the last leg of our journey at the Le Vieux Relais. While we enjoyed every part of our journey through France and Spain, this was the most beautiful and relaxing. Mike and Val made us feel like this was our home. Our room was spacious, immaculate, beautifully decorated and our beds were very comfortable!...

My friends and I were finishing up two great weeks in Paris, Normandy, Barcelona and decided to end our vacation in this lovely rural area in the south of France. We booked our stay in advance and were looking forward to a more relaxed form of sightseeing. Val and Mike were excellent in steering us in the right direction to...

We were travelling up the Med coast and had a 1 night stopover in this very friendly and convenient location (we understand that 1 night is unusual). We were made very welcome by Mike who provided a much needed cup of tea after our journey, as well as some excellent home-made victoria sponge. We then sat chatting to him by...

Val and Mike were excellent hosts and made us all feel very welcome. They have achieved the difficult balance of being there when you want them, but not being there when you want privacy. Their cooking is superb and i'd definitely recommend trying some evening meals in house. They can supply beer / wine and soft drinks at very reasonable...

This was a return visit to Le Vieux Relais having had a 2 night stay in 2012. If anything we found that Val and Mike have improved their delightful Chambre d'hôte or perhaps we had forgotten just how lovely it is, combining the peace and tranquility of the Lanquedoc villages with the spacious rooms ( we had one on the...

Our all female group received a warm welcome to the hotel, we were collected from the airport and didnt have to wait. The rooms very very spacious and clean on arrival. The pool was enough to just dip in to cool off. There were loungers around the pool but not enough for our party, but no one seemed to mind...

We are pleased to hear that this guest enjoyed the peace and quiet of our location, however we feel the need to add some detail to put her review into its proper context and go some way to explaining her apparent dissatisfaction with her stay and her misunderstanding of exactly what was booked. Firstly we are not a hotel, we...

A lovely warm welcome awaited us after a long and tiring journey. We were helped by Valerie and Michael in the last part of our journey when we encountered a thunder storm, we were running late but that didn't make any difference, at all to them. The dinner was kept until we arrived, and a very good meal it was,...

A lovely quiet house at the centre of this typically pretty village. The owners could not help enough, even booking a great restaurant nearby for us in the evening. Rooms large, clean and comfortable, breakfast and other facilities excellent. Easy to find, only a few Km from the autoroute. Near the Canal du Midi and in some fabulous countryside. Good...

“I stayed on the top floor in a very spacious bedroom with armchairs and a coffee table. Also the bathroom was huge with a walk in shower”

“our room on the top floor had fairly recently been decorated and furnished, so was very comfortable. It was a little noisy, but that was mainly because the weather was hot and it was in the grape -harvest season.”
