Aux Quatre Saisons
Ranked #1 of 3 Axat B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Can't help but agree with other reviewers about Paul & Val's hospitality - top notch! We had 3 days in Axat, using it as a base to explore southern Languedoc. First night dinner was great, excellent food, convivial company and we were all kept on song with Paul's wit and vitality - and his fantastic cuisine. Our room was very comfortable (Blue Room upstairs) quite roomy, quiet and nice garden outlook. Paul had second night off from the kitchen, but we had no hesitation opting to dine in on the third night - and we weren't disappointed. Once again the anecdotes flowed, as did the wine.... and once again, the food fantastic - couldn't be faulted (lamb shanks just hit the spot for a couple of hungry Kiwis after a day clambering up to a couple of Cathar castles on rocky crags). A real treat in a little village tucked away in a charming corner of rural France - perfect way to end our week tripping around the backroads of Languedoc.

We can only echo what others have already said. This wasn't quite the area we wanted but the reviews of the chambres d'hôte were so good that we just had to try it out. We arrived far too early but were instantly greeted with warmth and affection and welcomed into the fold. The infamous Cartouche gained two more fans and we were treated to lots of ideas on what to see and do in this region. Both Paul and Val are exceptional hosts and we had some very memorable and fabulous meals during our stay.As noted elsewhere, one of the real plus points is Paul's cuisine and the ambiance around the meal table is second to none. We really enjoyed talking to fellow travellers and hearing thoughts on places to visit. We will be returning just as soon as we can.This is a holiday experience not to be missed,à ne pas manquer!

Room Tip: We had the garden room which was idyllic with mountain views and a private terrace.Very well equippe...

What a fantastic place and what amazing hospitality. We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute. In the evenings Chef de Cuisine and all round bon viveur Paul produced wonderful food, poured copious wine and delivered entertaining banter. In the morning the breakfast table was laden with choice. This is a charming stopover with equally charming hosts and we shall go back again. Especially we liked their little dog Cartouche who brought a touch humor to the evenings. Across the years I have traveled all round this globe - just occasionally you come across a gem. This is one I will add to my list.

We recently stayed for 7 days and 6 nights at Aux Quatre Saisons in Axat, France. It was our second time to stay there in 3 years and I hope we get to return in the near future. Paul and Val are fabulous hosts and make you feel like an old friend rather than a guest at their B & B. As with before, we were greeted by Cartouche, their energetic and loveable Sheltie, as we drove into the car park. The day after we arrived, the Tour de France came right by the B&B. Paul and Val had prepared a wonderful lunch for all of the guests on the patio so we could enjoy the events of the day. That evening, the guests who had ridden their bicycles up the mountain rejoined the rest of us and we had a delightful dinner which included a different libation with each course. It was so much fun to relive the day and hear all about the adventures the cyclists had on the mountain. Paul and Val know how to bring people together and just have a splendid time getting to know one another. We were privileged to meet people from Spain, Australia, and the UK......our visit was enriched by getting to know the other guests which was a direct result of Paul and Val's efforts to make everyone enjoy their stay. They are the best B & B hosts I have ever met and hope to return again in the coming years. I would highly recommend that anyone who will be in that area make it a point to stay with Paul and Val in Axat for at least one night but preferably several. I would even advise people to go out of their way and make Aux Quatre Saisons a destination! We did and will again as soon as possible. You will never find two people who put so much love and care into taking care of their guests as Paul and Val. They are TERRIFIC!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden Room. It is detached from the rest of the house and is very private, quiet...

Paul and Val are hardworking people who know how to make their guests welcome. We had a lovely four night stay with them this summer in a region of France which we have fallen in love with. The meals and breakfast are excellent, the rooms airy, clean and comfortable and the company first-rate. They deserve every success that comes with Aux Quatre Saisons as it is a very special place to stay.

This is a great B&B and a stunning location. Our room was very well equipped (free beer, soft drinks and chocolate in the fridge on arrival) and the bed was very comfortable. Paul and Val are very hospitable and gave great recommendations on where to visit locally, don't miss the 'Gorges de Galamus'. Evening meal is great value.

We were going to stay in Foix but decided to push on to Axat. Thank goodness we did.
Aux Quatre Saisons is at the end of a charming village in a quiet setting. The house is lovely and feels warm and cosy.
Paul looked after us as if we were long lost family and we immediately felt very comfortable and at home.
We asked for an evening meal and were treated to a feast. Breakfast was also substantial and of the very best quality. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
A stay here represents outstanding value for money and was one of the high points of our holiday.
