Guests opinion :


Comments that we particulary appreciated

Doug & Jeff :  "Les gentlemen, It was a fantastic stay and one we’ll treasure for a long time ! Merci pour un séjour excellent ! Nous espérons de revenir tôt. "

Steve & Ivo :  "The swimming pool is spotless, the garden immense, the peacefulness absolute. So many small details (fresh flowers in the bathroom and kitchen, some supply of coffee pads, a free map,...) make this holiday house even more personal: you feel at home already 5 minutes after your arrival. Only one negative comment: I shouldn’t recommend it too much: we surely want it to be available next time we travel in that direction."

Sophie :  "My gite looks like it is right out of a magazine."

Doreen & Brian :  "We are experienced international travellers and this is probably the very best place we have ever stayed. The unique concept behind this amazing project of renovation combining contemporary style within medieval buildings works very well. The peaceful ambiance and the attention to detail in every aspect makes it very easy to highly recommend Domaine de Monteils. Richard and Frederic are wonderfully attentive hosts and more than willing to respond to any request, but respect the privacy of their guests. Two couples we met there had stayed on a number of occasions previously. We will definitely be following their example and booking for a stay next year! "

Jonas : Words alone cannot express how perfect Domaine de Monteils is. Richard & Frédéric were gracious hosts who went the extra mile to recommend day trips, make dinner reservations in the area and leave champagne and fresh picked flowers for us upon arrival (we were on our honeymoon). Then you have the Domaine itself which is a true paradise of relaxation, well kept grounds and beautifully renovated villas. If you do make a trip into one of the nearby towns, be sure to visit Sauve, a charming, artsy, fairy tale Medieval town about 10km away. While in Sauve walk the twisty hillside streets all the way up to the top and be sure to have dinner at La Tour de Mole (recommended by Richard & Fred), which was hands down the best culinary experience we had on our two-week honeymoon in France & Spain.

Sarah : "So beautiffuly done with every appliance and furnishings of the very highest quality and impeccable taste.  You won’t find 2 hosts who will treat you better, no matter what 5 star hotel you are at. This may not be a hotel but it is run better than many of the finest ".

Daniel & Nicola : We had a really fantastic time staying at the apartment, it is even more beautiful than the photos and utterly peaceful. The area is beautiful and Richard and Frederic were fantastic hosts, providing everything you could wish for - they were always available to help. I couldn't recommend it highly enough - I would definitely go back and hope we will one day!

Catherine : One of best ever holidays. Welcoming and helpful hosts. Marvelous accommodation, hot tub under the stars ... What can I say!! Arrived intending to visit Avignon, Nimes etc but so fell in love with the small local medieval villages and towns esp Sauve and Sommieres and some great local restaurants, away from tourist madhouse, we decided not to bother. Richard and Frederic it was simply wonderful.

Dominic & James : We have been busy since we got back to the UK after our holiday but thought we had to send you an email to say again how much we enjoyed staying at the Domaine de M in September. We have passed your details on to several people, and I am sure a few will head there. We meant it when we said that if you are coming to London, you'd be welcome here. Even just a meet up for a drink would be fun.

Wolfgang : We had a wonderful time at the very nice home of Richard & Frederic. Our apartment was very tastefully furnished and carefully decorated. Everything we needed were there and much more. The huge park with pool are perfect for relaxing. During the first cold and rainy days we fall in love with the private jacuzzi at our terrace. The atmosphere of the whole complex is very calm, friendly and familiar. We had the feeling to stay at the home of friends. We will come back - sure!

Brodie : We had a wonderful week at Domaine Monteils. The property is stunning, with lovely gardens, a great pool and beautifully restored old stone buildings and a winery. Our Gite was perfect, beautifully appointed with everything we could need. Frederic and Richard were great hosts, always happy to help and provided great tips on places to see in the local area. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Meagan : I stayed for a perfect week with Frederic and Richard. They were wonderful host that answered all our questions about the area and the apartment. We stayed in the Pavillion Matheo and it was amazing... exactly what it looks like in the photos. It is spacious with impeccable design that combines the original features of the Domaine with modern touches of style and convenience. The grounds are beautiful, even in January, so I can only imagine what they must be like in the summer. There are so many fantastic places to visit within an hour drive that show off the culture and history of the area and Fred is very helpful with suggestions! But in all honestly, you do not even have to leave the Domaine to enjoy your vacation. Sleeping in, walks and bike rides during the day, cooking delicious meals in your perfectly appointed kitchen and the spa with some champagne under the stars at night... what more do you need!

Kirsten : The place to be in southern France! Very tasteful old but entirely renewed former vineyard. Clean and comfy apartment with lots of private space so that you nearly think you´re alone. If I was to dream about an old vineyard it`ll pretty much look like this. The hosts, Frederic and Richard are totally friendly, helpful and hospitable. They seemed to be available almost 24/7. If you have a question about anything they are always eager to help, even late at night. All in all they really care so that you feel welcomed. We are still fairly young (30/31) and have lots to see in this world and there is almost no reason to come back to a place twice so when we say we will come back it has to be good. It is a secret tip by now but I guess it won´t be for long because you will have to travel far to find a matching place. So why am I writing all of this? It will only attract more guests...

Ben & Shimi : From the first e-mail exchanges with our hosts, Richard and Frederic, we already knew that this is going to be a vacation of a life time, and we were not wrong. A true heaven. The site itself is much bigger than it looks on the web-site. Such a place can easily accommodate many, but with only few gites, we always felt by ourselves. Yet, we were catered for every need, as our hosts were always available. Even after we left, we were still informed about places to visit and restaurants to book afterwards.. I will highly recommend this Domaine for couples that wish to escape a little bit from the city life, yet like to easily reach towns and villages, discover the landscape and hike. Also highly recommended to gay couples!

Hugo : My wife and I recently spent a wonderful week at Le Domaine de Monteils. We stayed in La Suite Luna which has only recently been available. As can be seen from the photo's It is decorated and equipped to a very high standard in a modern style and with great attention to detail. We particularly appreciated the Italian style walk in shower, spa bath and entertainment centre.
We loved the large deep swimming pool and the hammocks dotted around the property where we could spend a lazy afternoon. Our hosts, Frederic and Richard were really attentive and did their utmost to ensure that we had a great stay. I highly recommend this as a place to stay for a couple wishing to spend a peaceful & romantic week in the Languedoc countryside. We will certainly return to this little bit of paradise!

Lynne & Chris : Chris and I just arrived back to Canada yesterday. We wanted to send you an email when we returned home to thank you for the lovely stay at the Domaine.  Your property is breath-taking and our stay with you was truly enjoyable and memorable.  It was such a relaxing week for us and a vacation that we really needed!  Thank you for booking the restaurant reservations for us - especially our dinner at Chateau Salinelles for our anniversary dinner.  Your hospitality was greatly appreciated.

Birgit & Peter : We are thinking back about our extraordinary time in Reve d'Evan and your locations. The impressions we have had, the taste and smell of your country and your very kind communication helps us a little bit for the rest of the year regarding season depressions.


Frederic u. Richard haben das Paradis neu erschaffen und tun alles dass man sich auch so fühlt. Dieser Eindruck entsteht schon bei der Einfahrt. Sie sind present und doch zurückhaltend. In unserer Wohnung hat es an nichts gefehlt,
man konnte sich nur wohlfühlen und den Urlaub in vollen Zügen geniessen. Das Umland ist wunderschön zu erkunden
und von Richard kann man sehr gute Reisetips bekommen.
Auf diesem Wege nochmals ein riesigen Dank für einen unvergleichlich schönen Urlaub - wir kommen wieder. Birgit und Peter.

Aurora & Rolf : Vancouver - Canada. Thank you for a most wonderful stay! We loved everything. After almost 7 weeks tourinsall around the south of France and many parts of Spain - our stay with you was the very best of all.

Eileen & Mike : Just as promised I would like to write to you and thank you for your immense hospitality, it was a sheer joy to stay in your wonderful, tastefully decorated Gite. We had everything we needed. Perfect privacy and the perfect hideaway. Beautifully landscaped gardens and a super pool.  The Gite has all mod cons and is immaculately clean. It truly was a pleasure staying there. The Jacuzzi is a blessing in the evenings and it all works wonderfully well. The historic nature of the buildings all adds to the pleasure of staying at this accommodation. We stayed in the Timeo Gite and  i highly recommend it to any other visitors to France who enjoy peace and solitude. There is plenty to do in the area and great for Cycling. We will be returning to this part of France again and will definitely recommend you to all friends and family. Thank you once again for a truly memorable 50th Birthday for Mike and also giving us a great holiday experience in France. Unforgettable.

Matt & Gita :  We really thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the concept you had created was perfect. The accommodation and facilities were first-class - everything looked good, worked well and was very comfortable. And you were both perfect hosts - discreet yet available and helpful when needed - and both very charming. Your love and care for the place is infectious.  I'd be surprised if we don't come back sometime soon.

Catherine & Chris :  We were looking for a quiet relaxing place to enjoy our honeymoon and really chill out after the stresses of planning a wedding. The dream lost and spa along with the amazing setting gave us everything we wanted and more. The style was perfect with all the mod cons you would want. The hot tub was a highlight for us as sitting out at night with a glass of wine along with the stunning view was brilliant.The whole place is very peaceful and beautiful. Richard and Frederic were the perfect hosts very attentive but also respectful of your space. Very knowledgeable about the area and have a great vision for the rest of the renovation. We cannot wait to go back and see the next completed part of the project. Thank you for helping make our honeymoon special.

Paul & Charlie :  We just wanted to send you a message to thank you for a wonderful stay at Domaine de Monteils, we had a fantastic honeymoon.  You were charming hosts, thank you for being so welcoming and for everything you did to make us feel so welcome. The two gites we stayed in were fantastic, you really have thought of everything.  We loved the contrast between Suite Margot and le Rêve d'Evan, and we can't wait for a future holiday in another of the gites!

Wendy & David :   We are experienced travelers ( for both business or private ) , most of the time we have been putting up in hotels, with only 1-2 exceptions staying in furnished & self catering apartments. The moment we arrived in Domaine de Monteils, we already fall in love with the place & the little cottage Suite Margot we've rented. 


The beauty of the place is beyond words, surrounded by vineyards, lovely garden & courtyards, contemporary interiors, restored stone houses, the peacefulness & quietness, we simply couldn't resist & love the 'old charm' feeling this place brought during the one week we've stayed here. Prior to that, the attentiveness & helpfulness from Frédéric & Richard , just make us feel so at home. It felt like a fresh scene of breeze as compared to some previous chaotic busy holiday.


Credit to both of you, whom prepared a very comprehensive & up -to-date handbook, covering good tips on restaurants, places of interests in region, possibilities of wine tasting/ purchase with the regional wine producers etc.
