“Haidee Benning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

A wonderful part of southern france to visit, made all the more wonderful by Martyn and his family. He is a magnificent chef, and catered beautifully to our vegetarian requests each night by preparing delicious 3 course meals each night. We stayed in the Family room which was perfect for our family of four. The entire hotel is well kept and and managed and made all the more charming by the presence of his children. Martyn will go out of his way to help you with your individual needs. The location was perfect for us, and we enjoyed walking up to the chateau which is directly behind the property and also to the lake and around the village. We all look forward to visiting Martyn and the Puivert area again in the future.

A very warm welcome from English-born Martyn and his large, French-speaking brood of beautiful children - all of which very well versed in looking after guests it would seem! We were uncertain of finding anywhere suitable to stay at late notice and thankfully there was room for two at this charming little island of home comforts the Pyrenees.

We were given impassioned and lively insight into local history, top tips on the local restaurants and even borrowed a set of bikes for a spot of cycling! The walking around the area was also superb and we didn't have to go very far for our activities.

After three nights (one more than planned) it was unfortunately time to get back to the programme, but Au Petit Verger is already high on the list for our next visit to the area and we hope to visit again very soon.

Room Tip: blue one was lovely - nicely fitted washroom!

A part of France (the far south west) that was new to us, a trip that was enhanced by the Chambres d'Hote that we found. Located in a small inland village, which has its own freshwater lake for swimming, au Petit Verger makes you feel genuinely part of the family. The house is clean and bright and the guest rooms are spacious. Evening meals can be booked and are excellent.
Martyn, the host, does the cooking and will advise on local places to visit. If you are a cyclist he will help with routes and climbs and, time permitting, will even join you on a ride.

Room Tip: There are five rooms, one ground floor and four first floor, and all are equally good.

Fantastic location. The perfect relaxing getaway for those who want some time out. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful in ensuring we made the most of our stay. We spent a lot of our time relaxing by the lake in the lovely village of Puivert. We were made to feel very welcome and the accommodation was excellent, clean and very homely. Waking up to a continental breakfast each morning and coming home to a delicious homecooked meal every night was certainly one of the highlights of the trip. I was particularly impressed that some ingredients were even homegrown! I'll definitely be returning.

Great location in a small village close to castles, gorges and plenty of other scenic towns and places to visit. Perfect for relaxing walks, nearby gliding and cycling. The B&B was clean, homey, and well run. Rooms were large and very comfortable. Martyn is an amazing cook and the food delicious. My best experience was the guided road bike tour accomodated through the Chambre. The area has great roads and is one of the most beautiful places I have ridden. It was made even better with an excellent guide describing the history along the way. I also recommend checking out the local glider ride as well, the only way to see such spectacular views of the Pyranees from the sky.

We spent a wonderful few days at this guest house and would certainly recommend it to others. The location is ideal for walking and cycling and is in a beautiful spot in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Our hosts provided lots of information about what activities were possible and we also spent much of our time just chilling out by the lake in the lovely little village of Puivert, 5 mins from the guest house. We found the accommodation excellent and rooms were spotlessly clean, light and airy. We ate wonderful breakfasts of fresh bread and croissants and Martyn prepared excellent meals for us in the evenings and also offered friendly conversation which was great for finding out more about day to day life in France. The whole family were extremely welcoming and the kids were so sweet and polite! Great place, fantastic beef bourgignon, much recommended!

A quiet family run location with excellent home cooked food available. Fresh bread and croissants from the local bakery each morning as well as a selection of cereals etc and fresh coffee.
The area is great for walking and biking, or just relaxing. A short walk (10 min) takes you out to the nearby lake where there is a picnic area and onwards to the valley.
With views of the spacious garden or across the valley the simply decorated rooms are light and airy.
