A warm welcome and a very authentic and personal approach to hospitality. We spent a very enjoyable evening having a delicious dinner with Val and Mike. They have converted the Relais with quiet style which has preserved the character of the old house, but provides excellent comfort. We loved the terra cotta (and C19th painted) floor tiles; Mike's sparkling conversation...

Four of us, two couples, have recently returned from a week's holiday at Le Vieux Relais. The owners, Val and Mike Slowther, hail from the UK and set up this Chambre d'Hotes in the Languedoc some seven years ago, really putting their heart and soul into running the place. Although there are five rooms available, we happened to be the...

We were so impressed with every aspect of our weeks stay at Le Vieux Relais.The room was very spacious and spotlessly clean and a dip in the pool was very welcome after a days sightseeing. Val and Mike couldn't do enough to ensure that we got the most from our holiday, whether it was providing information about places to visit...

This was our second consecutive year with Val and Mike and it felt like going to a home from home with friends. The place meets our needs perfectly, so much so that we drive 900kms from Spain to stay there in the lovely downstairs suite. We were treated excellently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them again. We stayed for...

We had a lovely time with Val and Mike. It was like staying with old friends. They were warm and generous – it was clear that they really wanted us to enjoy our holiday. They made very helpful suggestions for activities, booked restaurants for us and lent us chairs for our picnics by the lake. We had a relaxed and...

I recently spent 4 nights with my husband at Le Vieux Relais. The room was more like a suite, huge with a comfortable sitting area overlooking the court yard and pool. En suite shower with full size bath and separate toilet. The court yard provides a pleasant area to sit and enjoy a glass of local wine (very inexpensive) in...

Thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay with Mike and Val at Le Vieux Relais which is a great base for exploring the Canal du Midi. 'Cathar' country and the L'Aude area generally. Immaculate attention to detail by our hosts and some great dinners around the table with other guests in the courtyard added to the experience. Mike and Val provided...

My wife and I had 3 most enjoyable nights at this great B&B. Val and Mike went out of their way to ensure that our stay was memorable. In addition to providing very useful and practical information about the area they also organised a doctor's appointment for me in a nearby village and arranged for friends to host my wife...

Hi guys, I just wanted to say thanks again to Val and Mike for making our too brief visit to département de l'Aude truly relaxing.

I had the pleasure of staying at Le Vieux Relais in early June, My husband and I were on a touring holiday in France and Spain and my only regret is that we were only able to stay 1 night on this occasion, having stayed on 3 previous occasions, Val and Mike bent over backwards to make our stay a...

“I stayed on the top floor in a very spacious bedroom with armchairs and a coffee table. Also the bathroom was huge with a walk in shower”

“our room on the top floor had fairly recently been decorated and furnished, so was very comfortable. It was a little noisy, but that was mainly because the weather was hot and it was in the grape -harvest season.”
