Bed and breakfast Maison De L'Orb
20 Rue De L'Abreuvoir Maison De L'Orb, 34500 Béziers, France – Great location - show map
Picturesque private building with views of Pont Vieux situated on the river downhill, approx 10mins downhill from the main centre ville of Beziers. Five double bedrooms, all different sizes but all with small bathrooms. A lovely breakfast, great garden (ours, private not neighbours so ignore that odious review!), a great bar and entertaining space and friendly service. We are NOT a hotel, we don't have air-con (fans only), we don't have concierge, we don't accommodate children and we don't have parking BUT what we do have we do well and we do enjoy our guests. Take a peek at our Facebook or Twitter page for on the spot guest book reviews. Please note as our bedrooms are on the second floor and we are downhill from centre ville people with mobility issues may find staying somewhere else more beneficial for their needs. For cyclists we do have a large hallway where you can store your bikes overnight. Please let us know so we know how many to accommodate. We do allow dogs to stay but due to size of bedrooms, small well behaved dogs only. Best to ask before you book.
Hello. I have no idea of how I ended up doing what I do, none of it has been planned. We bought Maison De L'Orb in 2007. Even then we had no real idea of what we were going to "do" in France, until we saw the house. Then it kind of all fitted into place. We are not a hotel., more a private home with bedrooms. We offer the three essential Bs. A good bed, a good bathroom and a good breakfast. In 2015 we opened a new addition to the building, Jardin De L'Orb, our very own private bar and kitchen. We have guest areas with books to relax with, art on the walls, one very sociable dog, two cats and a garden of fruit trees. We are open most of the year so ideal for those who fancy a spring or autumnal getaway when out of season. The bedrooms have all been individually designed with good decor and all have been refurnished during 2019 and 2020. Aside from Maison De L'Orb, you may have read some of my novels. Yes. I am that author. More of me on my private website. Name plus dot com.
We are situated by the river just 10minutes uphill/downhill from the main part of town. Parking is outside, free but not private. Generally the area is quieter than in the centre but as Beziers is a city one expects the sounds of a city. If its birdsong and bees humming you require and not the odd train whistle (we are 10min walk from railway station), ducks quaking on the river or a neighbour talking loudly from time to time, stay elsewhere. Or just don't stay in a city. We are situated opposite Pont Vieux, the oldest bridge in Beziers with the Canal Du Midi minutes away. Uphill to the cathedral, bars and restaurants although during peak summer months there are a few outdoor venues open near to us.
