I stayed with my parents for 4 nights as an overflow to a family weekend at my sisters second home nearby. Francoise could not have been more welcoming and endeavours superbly at trying to speak every language! Due to our commitments we couldn’t attend dinner but it sounded amazing. Breakfast was a great fun affair of chatting & translating round the table. The homemade jam deserves its own trip advisor page! Nothing was too much trouble yet this was a classic home from home in the Languedoc-Rousillion.... “Chez Bernier” 👍🏻🙌🏼🥇👏
Delightful small inn, run by Francoise and Frederic, who are courteous, friendly and professional hosts. Our room was beautifully appointed, quite spacious and very comfortable for our three day stay. As other reviewers have commented, Francoise is an exceptional cook, and so we would highly recommend a meal at their house during a stay - we are not meat eaters, and she accommodated our requests for vegetables and fish with delicious and plentiful entrees and plats. We were the only Americans/english speaking guests during our stay, but Francoise and Frederic speak English well, and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home. The location is a beautiful setting itself, and close enough to explore Carcassone, Toulouse and Albi as day trips in the region. As a bonus, Francoise is also very knowledgeable abut the area and can suggest things to do and see in each of those cities, as well as providing easy driving directions. We highly recommend a stay here as a relaxing and informative way to visit this region of France.…
First of all, let me open with the fact that I worked in hotels for more than a decade and have had little experience of guest houses, it might taint my review. Now, the welcome was really good, Frederic and Françoise are relly good hosts, whom walked us through the house before showing us to our room, which was themed after a Guerlain perfume. The house in itself is a little castle, with quite a lot of room, rather well furnished. Outside is a little place to walk around in the grounds, as well as a little patch of woods which was well appreciated. The room was really fine as you will see in my pictures. Quite roomy, with a very nice view, and quite clean. I would not add this usually, but it seems it was a major point among other guests so I guess it is not the same with all guest houses. The bathroom was equally roomy, however since we had no opportunity to use the bathtub-sized jacuzzi before dinner, and it was forbidden to use after, it was all for naught. The dinner was fantastic as far as food was concerned. The cassoulet was masterly made with really good products, which was a pleasure to eat. We had to eat with all other guests which were a family so the ambiance was... peculiar to say the least. However the hostess made sure we were included in the conversations and quite welcome, which was a really good point. The wine was, to be polite, quite subpar. The rosé which I tasted was pretty tasteless, while the red, which I chose, was drinkable but too young or not qualitative enough to be served in my opinion. It is in the price range of the $3-4 bottles my family used to sell by container. Which would have been fine, if not for what happens next. My friend, which made the reservation, was told she'd have to pay EUR 10,- of city tax and extras per person. Which surprised me as city tax is not that expensive usually. I did ask for an invoice showing the taxes afterwards (did not think of it right away), however what I was given was not an invoice (no taxes, no invoice number), and did not reply as I asked for a proper one. So it is with a sour taste that I leave this review, for the stay was really good, and the commercial practices shady. To note as well : The swimming pool is not to code to receive public.…
This was our first time we ever tried a B&B experience, and we must say that if they are all up to this standard, we're sold. Françoise and Frederic welcome you into their home, are always ready for a talk, and some good advice on what the area has to offer, and on top of that : you get to taste the delicious food specialities of the region,thanks to Françoise's great cooking skills. Even so, we were worried about the whole experience being too much in our faces, but they sense perfectly when to give you some space and privacy. For us an A++ experience !
I love coming to Chateau Coquelicot! The rooms are spacious and comfortable, each on the theme of a perfume...this time I was in was called l'Instant Magique and held in violet tones: charming. Each room has a kettle, which is great...breakfast is generous with home made preserves, cheese, ham and a warm dish, tea or coffee or hot chocolate...Francoise is a superb chef and offers dinner which is not to be missed! Her paella is fabulous, as is everything she serves! This is just the best "maison d'hotes" you can imagine. As a bonus, Frederic is a brilliant osteopath and a session with him is highly recommended!
