Your Flexible Friend in the the Warm Heart of Languedoc, the Real South of France

I’m talking about our home and B&B, Villa Roquette, not Carole or me, although we will bend over backwards to make you welcome and help you to discover the most interesting region in France.

We have designed our accommodation to be flexible for your wishes. Our apartments and our Bed and Breakfast accommodation can be arranged to give individual private rooms all with en-suite bathrooms,showers and private entrances, or we can combine units to give one, two three or four bedrooms suits or apartments for bigger family units. All with air-conditioning (and central heating for winter evenings).

We offer you either self catering, or B&B – with evening meals if you wish.

Our dates are flexible, whether you stay for one night, a few days, a week or for a few months, you can arrive and leave at any time on any day of the week.

Stay with us on a flexible plan where you use us as your home-base for your trip, leave your luggage (husband, kids etc), but only pay for the nights you stay. You can leave your car in our secure parking and use the wonderful (and inexpensive) French rail network to visit other areas and cities (Paris is under 4 hours and the last thing you need in Paris is a car) – we do all the driving, to and from local rail or airport connections for you. Spain is only an hour away, so you could take the train to Barcelona. or take advantage of the great deals from Beziers airport (only 20 minutes from us and we do a shuttle service) to other Euopean capital cities.

All guests have the free use of bicycles, golf clubs, swimming pool, barbecue areas, terraces and gardens, beach and picnic items plus lots more..

You can book online now, or contact us for any special wishes.

We are keeping our old prices for as long as possible, as a newsletter subscriber I guarantee that you can book at this years prices until January 31st.

Do come and share our home with us, we would love to see you here.

Cycling in Languedoc

Cycling is very popular in France. This is not surprising with the climate, scenery and wonderful country roads.  Languedoc is especially good for cycling, breathtaking scenery and friendly villages every few kilometers to greet and refresh you.

An excellent website providing a lot of information for cyclists in Languedoc is Cycling Languedoc. This site covers the four departments of Languedoc and gives excellent maps of some tested cycling routes and accommodation where cyclists are welcome, including Villa Roquette of course


Buying a Property in Languedoc

As the summer season comes to an end, the wine harvest begins and new visitors come to Languedoc to look for a new home. Many are seeking a holiday retreat, but many are now coming to Languedoc with the plan to make it a more permanent home.

We made the decision to come and live in France over 20 years ago; I criss-crossed France many times in the first four years before decisding that languedoc was the palce we would set down roots – our children all grew up here and we don’t regret our decision for a second.

When they were younger the kids wondered why we chose this place – now they have travelled and lived in other countries, worked in Paris London and new york – they all come home, and understand now our reasons.

In Villa Roquette we offer you the perfect base from which to discover the region of Languedoc, plus, I have over 20 years experience of buying, selling, renovating and building houses here. I have worked as an estate agent and know the “tricks of the trade” and the “trickery” sometimes performed on buyers.I am totally impartail and I am always happy to spend time with our guests, driging to meetings, translating, recommending the “good guys” Lawyers, arranging mortgages and banks, phones and the hundreds of little thing that take time.

If you are thinking of buying property in the South of France (I have good honest friends selling in Provence and Paris as well) come and stay at Villa Roquette, or Contact me
