Reviewed 28 June 2012 via mobile

Spent 2 nights here. Very nice room. Patricia was a knowledgeable hostess. She had very tasty homemade jams with breakfast each morning. Her terrace area was just beautiful and the pool would be an added bonus on warm days. Our only regret was the location. We thought it would be more in the country but it was located more in a suburb. Still, we feel positive about recommending this very nice B and B to others.

We stayed with Patricia and Andre in early February, during the unexpected cold snap in Europe. The house is located in a small village a bit away from the main road, about 10-15 minutes drive from Carcasonne. Since we had GPS with us, it was not so difficult to find the B&B.

It snowed heavily as we approached Carcassonne in early afternoon and the roads were dangerously slippery for our rental car. We made it to the B&B. The original plan was to visit Carcasonne in the afternoon, but because of the snow, we got stuck all day at the B&B.
Thankfully Patricia and Andre were such a nice and friendly couple! They also speak fluent English. I traveled with my husband and my mother. Andre helped us to carry our heavy luggages upstairs to our rooms. Husband and I stayed at the Honeymoon Suite, while my mother stayed at the Love Nest room. Both rooms were lovely, beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. Each has their own private bathroom with toilet and sink. The house and rooms were immaculate and clean. Simply the best of all the B&B we stayed in Southern France!

We had some bread and pate and cheese so we ended up staying at the dining room all evening, waiting for the snowed road to get cleaned so we can go to Carcassonne. The dining room is also very nice, decorated in all Provence regale, overlooking the swimming pool at the back. There was kettle provided for guests use in the dining room, so we were able to help ourselves to selections of tea and coffee, which was nice considering that it was really cold and snowy when we were there.

All in all, wonderful place to stay while visiting Carcassonne area!

We visited Patricia and Andre for three days in October, and their hospitality was one of the highlights of our trip to France. They are wonderful hosts, and made their home our home while we were there.

While we do not speak French, Patricia, who has perfect English, dealt with our phone booking without problem. On arrival we were offered a choice of three bedrooms, each one unique and each beautifully presented. Each morning we had a superb breakfast, including home made preserves and jams served by Patricia. We were also given excellent recommendations for restaurants in the locality.

If we ever have reason to return to the area, we would love to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here, in the honeymoon suite in late May, for one night. Patricia and Andre were very welcoming hosts - friendly and knowledgeable - not only about the area but about other parts of France and the world - they gave us some great ideas for places to visit as we travelled on to Provence. Their home is immaculate, very quiet and the breakfast on the mosaic tables in the beautiful backyard was picture perfect. Villalbe is an old village away from the tourist route which we enjoyed, but not appropriate for anyone looking for a night life. However, it is an easy drive into the walled city of Carcassone.

Stayed with my wife in the Honeymoon suite (as it is called). The home is terrific, the room was clean, and the breakfast was delicious. We weren't able to take advantage of the pool (this being late October) but did enjoy the back yard.

There is no stand-up shower in the room, but the tub and the hand-held shower did the job.

This B&B is located south of Carcasonne (south of the highway) in a beautiful little village called Villable about 10 min from the town and about 10 min from the castle. After seeing Carcasonne you'll be happy you're here and not there. The only catch is, this is an old village with narrow roads and steep hills...bit of an adventure to find the B&B but well worth the trip.

We booked to stay for 3 nights in september and had a wonderful stay. We cannot thank Patricia enough for being such an attentive host. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was so beautiful and spacious over looking the garden and pool.
The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic with homebaked goodies every morning and Patricia's homemade Jams, of which she told us she had 12 different varieties!
We enjoyed the area as it was a very short drive to Carcassone or the surrounding vineyards.

Patricia and Andre are exceptional hosts, always making sure you have everything you need and more. We stayed in the new room they opened up at the top level, Reve Oriental, it is beautifully decorated and comfortable. One thing to be aware of is that the room has a lower part of the ceiling, that you can hit your head. Patricia made us aware of this, so it wasn't a problem. Overall you can't miss staying at this place. Very quiet and invitiing. We will be back!
