Located on the river , just beside an old stone bridge , this B& B is very picturesque. The room was very specious and the furniture showed a lot of good taste and gave a homely feeling . Also the small balcony overlooking the bridge and river added to that . The mattresses were extremely good and were welcomed after... More

Wonderful b&b overlooking the river and just outside the historic center. The owner is very friendly and professional. The room is very spacious, the bed is confortable and the balcony you can admire the river. The breakfast, included in the price, it's plentiful and of high quality. Pets are welcome at no extra cost. Very recommended!

This isn't my first review or stay at La Maison de la Riviere. The rooms are spacious, location fantastic and hosts excellent. I am a regular visitor to the area and would definitely stay again. The location is ideal for a couple of local restaurants and bars, as well as the Sunday market being right outside. Esperaza makes a perfect... More

I booked for three nights after reading about the place here. The owners are very friendly, can help with tips about location around town, stores, restaurants etc. Breakfast was very nice with fresh bakery, the room was very big and nice, and the greatest feature was the view from the porch, the lovely river flowing under the bridge. The town's... More

There were 4 of us traveling, which required two singles and a twin room, a tall order to fill.

Such a beautiful building and charmingly furnished. Perfect location for Esperaza and surrounds. We booked a room by phone at short notice (same day) and our family of 5 were put up for a very reasonable price in a huge room, with ensuite, overlooking the river. It is difficult to find accommodation for 5 that doesn't mean a high price... More

First class B&B. Excellent hosts, very friendly & gave us invaluable advice on places to see & routes to take. Breakfast was wonderful and the bread was the best I tasted while we were in France. Would.definitely stay again if we planned to revisit the area. The Creperie & restaurant Le Saint Gobain were excellent.

I was fortunate enough to locate this B and B and stay here for 2 nights although I wish I had been able to stay longer. This quaint B and B is ideally situated nearby the beautiful Aude river and is conveniently located for easy and central access to many nearby interesting historical sites and landscape treasures. Within a half... More

Stayed four days, loved the experience. Welcoming hosts, close to RLC and other interesting sites, outstanding breakfast. Was there for the Sunday market, right outside, another fantastic experience. A new restaurant has just opened, "Le Saint Gobain", easy to find and whilst still in its infancy, can only add to the holiday. Can highly recommend a stay here.
