I've just returned from a 7-night stay at Le Chai Catalan - what a gorgeous place! I happily spent hours in the garden, but it is also brilliantly placed for visits to the beach, mountains, interesting towns/cities and great places to eat. Breakfasts were delicious, eaten on the new (mosaic) patio area, next to the lemon tree and its intoxicating... More

We stayed with Pascale this summer, and we absolutely loved it. She's a great host, and makes a mean breakfast :-) The Chai Catalan is a charming and beautiful B&B, with nice rooms and very comfy bathrooms. It's clean and quiet. The garden is lovely and has a swimming pool where you can sit and read books, and cool down... More

This B&B was dreamy! I have only good things to say about our stay here. The rooms were very clean, the beds were very comfy, the showers were large and hot. The place itself is wonderfully remodeled and you could kill hours on the terrace and in the pool. Breakfasts were wonderful - fresh bread and pastries, yogurt, fresh fruit,... More

It was a pleasure to meet you both...and your dog (my cats are ok, they don't mind too much having dogs around, they stand aloof and it only reinforce their sense of superiority !).

We made our way here by train to Perpignan and then taxi to Ortaffa, through wonderful country full of food, much of which made it to the breakfast table. Lovely place, beautifully converted from the old chateau winery - comfortable and spacious, you can choose to be quiet on your own, or join in the conversation with other guests. Pascale... More

We spent 5 nights at the Chai Catalan and loved every minute. Beautiful bedroom and bathroom and lovely garden with pool. Very close to the coast and the Mountains, so excellent for exploring the area. Pascale also speaks very good english which is very helpful for those of us that are still trying to improve our French. 15 - 20... More

You could not wish for a friendlier stay with very helpful hosts. Breakfast in the garden in the sunshine under the trees was such a great start to the day.Our room was superb and the en-suite was the same. If we ever return to the area we would not consider staying anywhere else.

The room was very comfortable and luxuriously decorated, the garden was lovely, breakfast fresh and delicious with lots of local specialities. Having the pool was great especially in the heat of the summer and away from the... More

Spacious and comfortable rooms, tastefully decorated. Lovely breakfast served in the quiet, shady garden. Pascale and Tim are knowledgeable and helpful hosts. Our two small dogs were welcome. Pool refreshing after a day of excursions. Good restaurants in neighbouring villages. Wine country all around.

We spent a few nights here in June, taking a break on an otherwise busy holiday. It was the perfect place to relax for a few days. The host, Pascale, was very attentive and friendly without being intrusive in any way. Our room was very welcoming with a great ensuite shower room and a large, comfortable bed. The spacious communal... More

We had a wonderful stay at Chai Catalan. Built into the wall of the ancient town, the former winery has been beautifully remodeled and designed for guests with spacious rooms (we were in Grenache) and a large atrium decorated with interesting art. Very comfortable bed with luxurious bedding. The ensuite bathroom was a tiled work of art. The lovely French... More
