Maison De L’Orb is one of the best old houses in Beziers overlooking the river where guests come to stay with us throughout the year. The house is unique in its character and differs somewhat from others in the surrounding area. We have guest areas with books to choose and relax with, art on the walls, one sociable dog, a lovely cool plunge pool and a garden of fruit trees. The bedrooms have good comfortable beds; the bathrooms are simple with good showers. We also prepare a truly fantastic breakfast. Our guests have informed us of the ambiance and the homely atmosphere that simply allows their imagination to go back into the past. The house also harnesses all the up to date modern technology such as WI-FI and full office services for the business traveler on the move. We are open all year so ideal for those who fancy a spring or autumabal getaway break when out of season. The bedrooms are simple with all facilities such as a proper hospitality tray with real milk. We use fruit from the garden when making our breakfast jams and preserves. Our garden overlooks Pont Vieux and is the best place to catch the sunset whilst enjoying a preamble drink. Dinner can also be prepared and cooked using local produce. Our guests stay awhile, read, chat and sleep well, and we watch their tension drop away. That makes us happy and that is why our guests return two or three times a year. We don’t pretend Maison De L’Orb is a hip boutique, nor are we a middle of the road boring hotel...but you will discover your own charm when you’ve arrived.

Contrairement avec d'autres B&B, le contact avec notre hôte a été correct, mais pas plus, nous n'avons pas communiqué beaucoup . La chambre était convenable, avec un très petit lavabo. Le petit déjeuner était très bon et complet. ,

We stayed for the weekend 19th-21st July 2013 in a king room and our stay was just fab!! From the minute we arrived to the time we left we were welcomed by the friendly owners, Mark & Ben. Nothing was too much trouble! Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed super comfortable!! The bathing pool, beautiful suntrap garden and sun terrace were a bonus in the beautiful weather and the iced water brought to us by Mark whilst sunbathing was a welcome gesture :-) Another plus point was the well stock fridge of wine and beers. Breakfast was just such a treat....gorgeous jams and homemade marmalade and homemade granola was divine.....and the croissants FRESH All in all a great stay......go, you won't be disappointed.....and tell your friends, they won't be either!! ;-) Thanks for a great stay guys..and good luck with the books Mark, I have read two and they are AMAZING!!

Stayed over valentines week. Lovely arrival with cookies and tea. Bedroom outstanding overlooking river - free valentine champagne and chocolates in room was a lovely gesture. We had arranged to have dinner which was lovely. Mark and Ben are great hosts and keen to make sure you have a good holiday. Breakfast was HUGE - never seen so much choice and it was a lovely setting with the other guests and endless pots of good coffee. Beziers itself is a lovely town, nice and quiet as out of season but we have already booked to return in August. We look forward. RECOMMENDED.

Just spent a few days in Beziers on route back to the USA from Spain. Beziers itself is an interesting place to visit, full of little nooks and sights and some great places to eat. We were recommended to stay at Maison De L'Orb by some friends who had stayed last year and were impressed by their welcome. We were also impressed by their welcome and the complimentary wine and cakes on offer. The bedrooms (we booked three) were excellent with good comfy beds, good bathroom facilities and ample storage for a few days stay. If staying for a week I would believe some people may struggle with storage on offer although this is perfectly normal for a small B & B especially bearing in mind the price (we paid 30€ per person per night). Breakfast was lovely, fresh coffee and pastries, lots of fruit, cheese and meats and yoghurts so enough for everybody - and there were refills. We were unable to stay for dinner although the smell of whatever was cooking was lovely. The house itself is lovely in character, lots of things to look at, books to read and objects to admire. If minimalist decor is your thing then Maison De L'Orb is definitely not your place. Despite this the place was clean. It was also lovely to meet other guests. Recommended and thank you for a lovely stay. Love to Oscar the dog! xx

Thank you Mark & Ben for a lovely few days stay on our way home to Canada. You have a lovely home (albeit a bit difficult to find at first - our problem!) but it was worth it. You are both very talented hosts and have a lovely home which is totally quirky and individual. The bedroom was excellent with great views of your lovely garden and the river - lovely sunset and the sounds of ducks waking us up. The breakfast was outstanding - usually French B & Bs offer bread and cafe but you offered so much more and thank you for my soya milk! I would recommend to others having dinner with you which was excellent, generous portions and great wine. We are hoping to continue our European travels next year and if Beziers features on our Itinerary we shall we back. Merci! xx (Tracey and Bill Trent)
