Having stayed inside the walled city of Carcassonne a couple of times previously my wife and I opted for a hotel just outside the city this time. It's hard to define this hotel but if you are looking to be fussed over and have all sorts of amenities then maybe it's not for you. Alternatively if you like the idea... More

We had one of the cheaper rooms which, although small was well furnished with everything working properly. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning was effective. Also, the sound insulation was good. All this led to a good sleeping experience. The shower (with both conventional head and rain shower) was excellent, although no hand soap was provided in... More

Stayed here for the last night of our tour around the region. Stunning location, lovely friendly staff, relaxing by the pool, reading in the library, delicious breakfast in the gardens, superb restaurant next door and a great little restaurant in town a short walk away as a nice alternative. Highly recommended.

A great place to stay for visiting Carcasonne. Very relaxing beautiful Chateau in the countryside and we had a lovely buffet breakfast.. Rooms were beautiful with extremely comfortable beds and lovely duvets and pillows. Could have done with a mirror in a better light as there were three mirrors in the bathroom and the lighting was very nice but dimmed... More

Great great great hospitality! The family that owns the hotel are very friendly, they welcome you (event if you get there at midnight like us), they walk you through tthe hotel, they serve breakfast, they give you tips about what to visit, etc. If you want to visit Carcassone but at the same time have quiet time in the evenings....this...

Family of 4 with two children...we all loved this Chateau; received a really warm welcome from hospitable hosts with very good English. Chateau de Palaja is 5 minutes by car from Carcassonne, a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town. Nice garden and pool, and the Hotel looks very clean, fresh and well presented. There is a... More

A village château lovingly restored. Warm family welcome, comfortable bed and Italian shower in our room. Perfect for a night stop on a passing visit of Carcassonne. Happy to have been further from the town which to me resembles a theme park and car park - but one of those places that needs to be seen. Restaurant on site, we... More

A haven of peace and tranquility, we stayed here for two nights and could happily have stayed longer. This small chateau has been tastefully renovated by the owners and has two separate gardens, a shady area for al fresco breakfasts, chairs for lounging, a swimming pool and a very good restaurant right next door, (reviewed separately). Inside on the ground... More

We recently spent 5 nights at the Chateau. It is a beautiful place, exceptionally clean, comfortable and with modern decor throughout. Despite the place being full,and residents constantly coming and going, we found our room, on the top floor , to be very peaceful and quiet. We were warmly welcomed and the owner was constantly on hand to help any... More
