From the moment we arrived at this beautiful B&B we were made to feel really welcome and at home. Jon and Mel are wonderful hosts - recommending lovely restaurants and information regarding the local area They couldn’t do enough for us. The accommodation is lovely with obvious attention to detail. Breakfasts were delicious (especially the scrambled eggs). The village is lovely and peaceful with a well stocked local shop and the restaurant serves fantastic food. There is a lovely walk down to the canal. Highly recommend and will definitely try to return.
Jon and Mel were the perfect hosts for our week exploring the region from the comfort of the apartment at La Souqueto. Very chilled and lots to explore, based on their extensive local knowledge. A week is not enough, wish we could have stayed longer.
We thought La Soqueto was just great ....so much so we stayed an extra night. Jon and Mel are charming hosts and offer great and helpful advice on things to do and restaurants etc. Their home is truly lovely. We would love to go back!
We have just returned from a fantastic 4 night stay at La Souqueto and highly recommend it. Mel and Jon are wonderful, welcoming and knowledgeable hosts. The accommodation is comfortable, peaceful and clean. The breakfasts are plentiful and delicious. We very much look forward to visiting again, thank you so much
Mel and Jon’s attention to detail was perfect. From the minute we arrived we felt at home and comfortable. If it could be done they found a way to make it happen. The town was delightful and full of older homes some rehabbed and some very rustic. Close to many other towns including Narbonne.
We stayed a week in La Souqueto’s Tastefully styled apartment. Jon & Mel are such lovely hosts. They recommended some lovely restaurants and gave us some valuable information on the local area. We also spent time on Bella Mia their beautiful classic boat- on the canal-du-midi which Is a must do! To experience the canal du midi- and it’s pretty canal side villages. We will definitely be returning! Mark & Maura
We booked two rooms in this lovely B&B for 3 nights. Jon and Mel were brilliant hosts and recommended some places to visit and helped us find some amazing local restaurants. We had a lovely few days exploring the area. We will try and come back for a wine tour!
This was our 4th stay at La Souqueto and there is a reason we keep coming back. This time we brought along my sister and her husband who didn’t understand why we keep coming back to the same place.....until they stayed there and now also want to return! By now it feels like a second home, being welcomed by Jon and Melanie who are the kind and gracious hosts of the chambre d’hotes. They always make our stay so comfortable. One of them is always in the dining room with a beautiful breakfast table set with delicious breads and croissants of course, jams, yogurt with granola, and fresh fruits. We enjoy our breakfast conversations so much that it’s hard to push away from the table. However, Jon and Mel will have some interesting site or walk suggestion and we go out and explore. This stay they offered dinner service as it was a Monday and off season, limiting our restaurant options. Their dinners with wine were excellent with the butternut squash soup and duck breast being a real stand out. We always sleep well here with comfortable beds and pretty rooms. Bathrooms are bright and roomy with soft bath sheet size towels on heated towel racks and a much appreciated full size hairdryer. The website is an accurate portrayal. My sister stayed in the newly remodeled apartment and they agreed they could make it a home base for a longer stay. So many things to do in the area from outdoor walks and ancient sites, to market villages, to bigger cities like Carcassonne, Narbonne and Beziers, and of course the Mediterranean. Looking forward to our next stay, as much for Jon and Mel as the Languedoc! Thank you Jon and Mel for your hospitality!…
We stayed 2 nights with boating expedition on the Canal du Midi both days. My mother, daughter and I could not have been more pleased with both our accommodations and the high point: a tour on the hotel’s beauty of a boat. My mother is 91 and not as agile as she’d like- so this was perfect. We enjoyed perfect hosts and tasteful and homey surroundings, lovely lunches at canal side restaurants
Jon and Mel are great hosts. The room was comfortable and beautiful and the breakfasts were great. My husband and I arrived with no set itinerary and Jon and Mel pointed us in a great direction each morning. They highlighted the best places to go on rainy days so we were never stuck for somewhere to wander because of the weather. Because of their expertise, we saw beautiful sights and ate wonderful food at restaurants we never would have found on our own. Thank you Jon and Mel, we can't wait to visit you again!
