“Nice place-nice people”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

What a nice place. We were on a drive tour and came across this B and B which is outstanding. The rooms are a credit to the owners who are such nice people. They really went the extra mile to please. If you want to stay in the area including Carcassonne don't bother staying in the crowded city, stay here and travel in to the city, it's about ten minutes away. Also only about ten minutes from a nice town called Limoux.
It really is nice. Thank you

Room Tip: All nice roms. One is super Luxury

Nicely decorated rooms (all different, we had Asia) excellent breakfast, nice and helpfull people.
The location, very close to the old abbey is good, the place is very easily to find as well: right in the heart of the village of St Hilaire. Very complete and well thought over.

We discovered this beautiful b&b quiet by chance. The hosts are very kind and hospitable, the food was great, the setting was lovely, music was fun, the rooms where worthy of a five star hotel. Especially if you are travelling with your children, we recommend this place. We have been rather disappointed with the french so far. They are rarely foreseen in the needs of children but in this inn, you should be fine.
on top of that, the location is quiet. Nature and culture in abundance. Comfortable and memorable holidays.

We highly recommend Maison L'Orchidee for comfort, value and hospitality. We experienced a most enjoyable 5 night stay in early October 2012. This area is delightfully scenic, ideal for walking or cycling around the vineyards and is made more attractive for visitors due to it's proximity to Carcassonne airport (approx 20 kms).
Jack and Jacquie will certainly endeavour to ensure an enjoyable stay by virtue of their hospitality, knowledge of local attractions and the availability of a full dinner or snack at a time to suit you.
On the first night the hourly chimes from the Abbey of Saint Hilaire were a little intrusive, however, we quickly became accustomed to the chimes and slept through them.

This was a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Our hosts were very welcoming and the facilities are great, especially for the kids, they enjoyed their own room and being able to watch DVD's whilst we enjoyed a relaxing glass of of the locally produced Blanquet outside. The hosts are very knowledgeable on the local area and where to eat.

Driving down to the south along the coast and back up through Languedoc-Roussillon. We found this B&B in The village of Saint Hilaire. Late in the evening but we were made very welcome . Breakfast was well set out and filling. We liked it So much we stayed for three nights . Having a dinner there on the last night. This was excellent Crevettes and salad Wine , Chesses and desert washed down with coffee on the outside terrace. Great value meal only €40.00 for the two of us. We had the Asia bedroom for three nights super bed and lovely decoration we slept like logs. The shower room had plenty of towels and was clean with shower gel etc, rooms were cleaned daily . We had tea & coffee in our room and English TV. But didn’t watch a thing too busy sitting out front at Night enjoying one or possibly two red wines. Our hosts Jackie and Jack looked after us well . They gave us more local information then the tourists centre. Sad to leave but we intend to make our way back soon . We just got back ( Monday night ) from our ten day site seeing trip in France and the memoires of Maison L’Orchidee stand out . After the crowds around Gruissan Plage and Cabanes de fleury this was so nice to be quiet and just relax and spend a bit of time visiting the sites

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nicely decerated and spacious.Will visit again and next time we book room wit...

Whilst traveling through the south of France we stop off at this lovely bed and breakfast with our kids. Very surprised to find they where a English too. The rooms where very spacious and the kids loved to massive bath.
Breakfast was great something for everyone even my fussy girls.
Very good hosts even sat outside with them at the end of the day and had a glass of the local wine and enjoyed the tranquil settings whilst the kids sat and played games.

Will be traveling again next year and will be returning.
