The boarding school approach seems quite an appropraite remark and constructive criticism shoud be taken in to account to improve service levels. Not having key to come in or to your room, is a curious way of respecting clients intimacy and independance. Breakeast, very basic, from 08h30 to 09h30 onyis a handicap for late nighters. Knocking on you room at...

We stayed four nights in Le Vieux Relais in May 2012. Our spacious top floor room was clean and the bed large and comfortable.We would have preferred the twin with fireplace one floor down. Val and Mike who hail from England were very helpful in giving directions and advice. They also arranged a day long wine tour for us. Mike...

We spent 5 nights with Val and Mike and were delighted with our experience. Our room in the attic was expansive and immaculately clean. Val and Mike, our hosts were so gracious and went out of their way to accomodate our every need. Val even made my husband a delicious chocolate mousse birthday cake. Both are wonderful cooks and used...

This was a return visit to Mike & Val's wonderful home in the heart of the Minervois wine-growing region. Much like a highly valued Minervois wine, the care they put into producing a high quality experience for all their guests is outstanding. Each ingredient required to have an enjoyable stay is provided so ably by them. This rings true in...

We spent 8 nights with Val and Mike in their haven near the Canal du Midi and had a perfect time. They really know how to spoil their guests and the only regret we have is that we didn´t spend the other 6 nights of our tour round France with them. The room was ideal for us, they make excellent...

What a great place le Vieux Relais is, owned by great hosts, Mike and Val Slowther. Super bedroom, super home cooked evening meals and excellent breakfasts. Nothing was too much trouble for this great couple, from taking us on a tour of Narbonne, to helping us in many ways with a house we have just bought in the village. Mike...

We had a wonderful time at Le Vieux Relais. Val and Mike couldn’t have made us feel more welcome and relaxed. They have oodles of information about the area, which was readily shared with enthusiasm. Nothing was too much trouble, whether it was organising bikes for the Canal du Midi or lending us a parasol and chairs for the beach....

We were recommended to stay at Le Vieux Relais whilst in the area for a vineyard tour and even though we had high expectations, because of previous trip advisor reviews, we were certainly not dissappointed. The quality of the accomodation combined with Mike and Val's excellent hospitality provided us with a great base from which to explore this beautiful region,...

If you're looking for a place to stay as a base to explore the Minervois, with side trips to Carcassonne and Narbonne, this is an excellent choice, where I've stayed a few times. Comfortable and smartly done up, it's by the church (no bells normally) and on the edge of the vineyards, just inside the characterful small town of Pepieux....

Standard of accommadation was excellent. Our room was beautifully furnished and in keeping with the character of the building.

“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.”
