We had a lovely 4 day stay at the Maison L’Orchidee in July. The hotel itself is charming and the colourful flowers and lights outside really made it feel homely and welcoming. The owners are very friendly and English speaking. Jack is very knowledge about the area and he was very keen to tell us about all of the best places to visit. On the first evening we had a very pleasant meal outside on the terrace with the owners Jack and Jackie. Jackie also made us a very tasty picnic to take out with us on the second day. We stayed in the Rustique suite which was very clean, comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed. The weather was very warm whilst we were staying but we found the ceiling fan in our room was enough to keep us cool during the night. The location is ideal and it was very peaceful both during the day and at night.
The area is very beautiful and there are lots of interesting places to visit locally. The Abbey is within 50 yards of the hotel and was very interesting with lots of little rooms to explore. Carcassonne castle was bustling and had a great choice of restaurants and shops to visit. We also visited the town of Foix and were lucky enough to see the Tour de France passing through whilst we were there.More
