“What a Gift to stay at les Marguerites! Comfort, cleanliness, great hospitality and tremendous food..if these are your requirements for an overnight stay or longer you have found your perfect place..I cannot think of anywhere else in this region I would stay or take my groups..can’t wait to return again “


Olen vienyt ryhmiä ja vieraillut itsekseni hyvin monia kertoja Les Marqueritesissa Languedocin alueella viimeisen neljän vuoden aikana. Paikka ja talo ovat aivan uniikkeja ja erityisiä, aivan kuten sen omistajat Antoinette ja Keith. Heillä on sydän kohdallaan ja he tekevät työtään intohimoisesti ja ammattitaitoisesti. He yksinkertaisesti tekevät vierailustasi Languedocin alueella erityisen, ja myös kaikkensa, jotta nautit siitä kaikin tavoin. Lisäksi, Antoinette on erinomainen kokki ja voit nauttia terveellisestä ja maukkaasta ruoasta vierailusi aikana. Voin suositella sydämestäni Les Marqueritesia jokaiselle.

I've had the blessing and pleasure of bringing groups for weeklong retreats at Les Marguerites more than a 1/2 dozen times and there isn't anywhere else in the area I'd recommend more. The level of attention, care and nourishment is exquisite. Antoinette holds the energy of the group and the work we are doing at a mastery level. I always feel deeply supported to lead at my highest level, knowing that I can rest assured that not only the logistical details of rooms, meals and a beautiful environment are handled yet also the loving embrace of Les Marguerites and family are buoying all that we are up to.

It’s difficult to think of enough superlatives for Les Marguerites!  Entering the house for the first time with my group, we were so lovingly welcomed by Antoinette and Keith that it felt more like a joyful homecoming than just walking into a pretty chambre d'hote.  A mouth-watering aroma floated in from the kitchen and soon we were happily treated to Antoinette’s considerable cooking abilities.  Every room was beautifully appointed and all my travelers couldn’t have been more delighted with the house, gardens and food.  Beyond the above-standard accommodations, however, was the incredible care, attention, flexibility and good humor of Antoinette and Keith, who guided and assisted us in multiple ways with their willingness to support our experience of the area.  At the end of our time there, none of us wanted to leave!  I take people all over the world and nothing compares to the petite Shangri-La that Les Marguerites is!

From the moment we all arrived at Les Marguerites we felt so at home – the welcome so warm and inviting.  Antoinette and Keith hold the perfect space that supported myself and my group on our transformational journey, inspiring emotional well-being and inner peace.  It is a place where personal connection and support is at the heart of everything that our hosts do – their attention to detail is exceptional and they will go the extra mile to ensure everything runs smoothly.  We stayed in their beautifully renovated house with tranquil gardens and small conference room all of which provided a magical backdrop for our work.  The food was delicious and Antoinette met all of our diverse eating requirements.  I was so pleased with the result that we have booked our next retreat for 2020.

The first sensation that you have when arriving at Les Marguerites is that it is a house that exudes the love. Antoinette welcomes you with her love hug and makes you feel right at home. With Keith and their beautiful children, they create a perfect team, one that connects at many levels with my groups. Every time that I bring my groups to Rennes-le-Château and the area, during the experiences of consciousness in the name of Mary Magdalene, I always choose Les Marguerites. The place is immersed in nature, the secular trees speak about the history of Alet-les-Bains and the entire house gives away what Antoinette and her family are all about – love, happiness and a burning desire to make your trip memorable. I am really in love with this place.
