Our second trip to the beautiful Languedoc area of France and Les Eaux Tranquilles. In June 2015, we were welcomed to the home of Chris, our host for 2 weeks holiday. He looked after us way beyond the requirements of traditional B&B and in the most picturesque setting within the majesty of the French Pyrenees. We recently returned from our second holiday (June 2016) at Les Eaux Tranquilles and it was so good we have booked again to return September (2016). Trip Advisor list this as a Hotel. It is not and Chris states quite clearly, that he runs this as a 4 bedroom B&B. That said, it really is a most sublime B&B, perhaps the best you are likely to stay in anywhere! Furthermore, Chris will cook you an wonderful evening meal, if you give him a day or so notice! We would highly recommend Les Eaux Tranquilles, but book well in advance as others have caught on!
We have stayed in rooms Lavender (nice and cool in Summer) and Sauge ( wonderful views of Pyrenees and river around the garden) and both are very well appointed, tastefully decorated and have huge ensuite bathrooms. Genuinely we could not fault either of them and that was for 14 and 10 days respectively. Chris has 4 rooms to let, 3 are of considerable size and as we found at least two are more than spacious enough to use as a base for two weeks holiday. I am led to believe that the 4th room is smaller, but still suitable for a few nights stay for a couple. Check his availability to get the best rooms. Regardless of your sleeping quarters you will receive a courteous welcome and excellent breakfast from a very informed host. It really is the perfect base to explore the whole historic area and if it is cloudy in the mountains, do as we did and head to the Med coast, its only an hour! Fantastic and best of both worlds!
