Stay at a luxury B&B near the beautiful Canal du Midi in Languedoc, France
Maison Laurent was built in the 1870s and is a typical Languedoc Maison de Maître or “master’s house”, located very close to the Canal du Midi. Elegant, shuttered windows, high ceilings and a winding stone staircase with a decorative wrought iron banister. Imagine our excitement when we discovered this house, waiting to be brought back to life after years of neglect.
Sympathetic renovations at this luxury B&B have maintained the character and integrity of the house, but added the modern refinements demanded by today’s discerning travellers.
Outside, there is a wide dining terrace overlooking the garden ...
Inside communal dining room, salon with bookcase and tv ...
We are pleased to offer our guests a choice of five distinctive rooms, all with ensuite facilities and that all-important air conditioning.
Our luxury B&B offers guests two comfortable double rooms, a deluxe double, a deluxe kingsize and a small single room. All our guest bedrooms have fine quality cotton bedding, attractive fabrics, designer curtains, comfortable beds and large, soft towels. We also provide pool towels and hairdryers.
Room 1 – is a spacious double with a lovely renovated and re-upholstered Louis XV demi-Corbeille bed (1.9m x 1.45m) and beautiful French style furniture. The subdued hints of red and a toile de jouy wallpaper complete that French country house feel. There is also a modern ensuite bathroom with walk in shower. There are views over the old village of Pieusse from this room.
Room 2 - is a bright airy room with a fabulous renovated and re-upholstered kingsize Louis XV demi-Corbeille bed (2m x 1.5m), specially made to ensure a good night’s sleep. Subtle greys and greens give this room a peaceful and relaxing feel and the views over the garden and vineyards add to this. There is also an ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower.
Room 3 - is a small, very popular single room (single bed 1.9m x 0.90m), also with an ensuite shower room. All you need for a relaxing stay is provided and there is a view of the ancient village of Pieusse from the window.
Room 4 - on the top floor is a deluxe double room with plenty of French style with a Louis XV demi-Corbeille bed (1.9m x 1.45m), beautifully embroidered linen curtains and a lovely romantic two-seater sofa. The views over the old village towards the distant hills and vines, whisk you back to another time. Prepare to pamper yourself in the deluxe bathroom, with a large shower, roll-top bath, double basins and subtle lighting, which will ease away the strains of modern living and help you relax and enjoy your holiday.
Room 5 - certainly has the ‘wow factor’, with a large king-sized bed (2m x 1.5m), silver painted and pewter French-style furniture and plenty of velvet and silk. Concealed his’n’hers walk-in wardrobes add to the feeling of space and luxury. Open the door to the ensuite bathroom where there is a large walk-in shower, double basins and a lovely bateau bath in the centre of the room with views over the garden and surrounding vineyards. You may not want to leave your room.
We serve an extensive continental breakfast at our luxury B&B with bread, croissants and pastries fresh from the boulangerie. Seasonal fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals and plenty of freshly brewed coffee or tea.
