This is not your typical saggy bed, bad decor, supermarket white toast Bed and Breakfast! We stumbled upon Villa de Mazamet when looking for a place close enough to explore Carcassonne - and close to golf and some walking trails. My first thought when I walked through the gates up to the fabulous entrance was, "oh my god, I wish this was my house". The best of the historic building was lovingly restored - the polished wooden floors, marble fireplaces, grand staircases - while the plumbing was all modern (big drench showers with an art deco flair!).
We ate dinner there on the first night (they offer a 4 course set menu) and it was so delicious that we booked in for dinner the next night too! After our walk on the second day, we arrived back at the Villa and the owners offered to prepare us a lunch buffet - consisting of fresh bread, salad, meats, cheese, pate, and a huge spread of cold fresh fruit. By the time we finished changing out of our hiking shoes, the outside tables were set and we enjoyed the afternoon sipping cocktails by the pool and indulging in the local fresh food!
The owners are extremely accommodating (interesting, funny, yet completely unobtrusive) so the common areas (pool area and sitting rooms) feel like you are in your own home. There are two sitting rooms – so guests have different places to relax – if you feel like leaving the comforts of the stunning bedrooms!
We stayed on the 3 for 2 offer and we all agreed that value for money was amazing. Plus, the dinner and lunch prices were less than the local restaurants and the quality and preparation of the food was excellent
Praise all around!
