We stayed at Villa Roquette for our 2 week honeymoon in May. This was
our first time in France and we were very happy with the place. It was
great having a full kitchen and the room itself had everything we
needed. We went on day trips almost everyday and there are endless
places within an hour of the B&B to explore. It was wonderful being
able to go for the day knowing we had the B&B to come back to. You
must go to the mediterranean gardens are a must see. Just make sure
and park at the bottom and walk up. We drove the whole way and would
not recommend trying to navigate the sidewalks they consider roads.
Carole and Tony were very nice and very helpful with anything we
required. The town itself is exactly what we expected for a small
French town. We went to the bakery each day and they always had new
surprises. The hours of the bar and shops was hard to get used to
being closed mid day but was not a big deal. The wine is to die for
everywhere we went and was very inexpensive. We spent many nights
sitting in the lovely backyard drinking wine and enjoying the great
weather. The dogs were very friendly and an added bonus at that. We
will definately be back and hope to return very soon. Thanks for the
memories, Clint and Tiffany Shea

We were struggling to find a b&b for our overnight while driving through the southern center of France. After 4 towns & not having any success, we inquired at a restaurant in Montblanc. The gracious hostess connected us with Carole Tidswell, the owner of the only b&b. After a few wrong turns with the crazy maze of one-way streets, we found her home! Our small suite, named the Poppy for its red hallway & decor, was on the second floor. We had a comfy queen bed, a large bath with a good shower/tub, & a separate toilet room, plus a little balcony overlooking the gardens. The room & villa was pleasantly decorated with original art works. Carol & Tony were wonderful hosts who made you feel a part of the family. Our breakfast was served in the garden & was casual with lots of interesting conversation. We enjoyed our first night so much, we asked about staying a second, which we were able to do. There was also free use of a washing machine which was timely for altering the mass of dirty laundry in our suitcases. (The laundry dried quickly in the warm sunshine on the outdoor lines.) We found our stay with the Tidwells to be very pleasant & fun. We enjoyed sipping a local wine with them as we visited in their gardens after our day of sightseeing. Carole even brought out pizza to share with her guests as we enjoyed the company of other guests & our hosts. It's difficult to find overnight facilities in this area as the French have rules against signage. No wonder we were having problems! The Tidwells are British & have lived in France for more than 16 years, so it was good to have hosts who easily understood us & we didn't have to struggle with our limited French vocabulary. The Villa Roquette was a great find as we meandered our way across the South of France. We highly recommend you find this little town & friendly hosts.

Carole & Tony - Thank you so very much for the lovely stay. It was a wonderful time and a beautiful first time European adventure for our family. We couldn't ask for better hosts and accommodations. We look forward to visiting again and will definitely make your place a highly recommended place to stay.

What a great base camp! We enjoyed our first visit to this region and will have to come back - couldn't possibly see it all, though we tried. Our apartment was a comfortable place to come "home" to after our daily adventures. We enjoyed our conversations with our hosts and found great humor in the antics of the dogs. Thanks for the great hospitality !
