I was lucky to chose this propriety to my short escape with my wife and son to Carcassone area. I had booked already a hotel inside Carcassone, since I was doubting what would be better for us, to stay inside the town or outside the town. Them one night, Isabelle called me in a perfect Spanish giving me some tips... More

My new wife and I made the long haul from Shanghai, China to southern France to find some much needed quiet, space and relaxation for our overdue honeymoon, and the boutique hotel 'Chateau de Palaja' didn't disappoint. I'm a little reluctant to write this review as we'd dearly love to keep this secret hideaway to ourselves as it was everything... More

If your plan is to visit Carcassonne, try staying outside the rush of the castle. The Chateau Palaja is a lovely small hotel just 5km outside Carcassonne. We stayed 6 nights and it was wonderful; far easier than staying in town with free parking and an easy escape for country drives but still close enough for visits to the castle.... More

Mme. Remy welcomed us on a rainy afternoon - and we knew immediately we would be very comfortable in her chateau. She thought of just about everything we could possibly need to know, and showed us around the building and up to our huge room. Breakfast was served to accommodate our schedule - and she was willing to make restaurant... More

This is a really wonderful place for a relaxing break. It's beautiful, comfortable, stylish and original. Cathy is a mine of local information and provides such a warm sympathetic welcome. Palaja is a good base for exploring this lovely region which overflows with beautiful sites, awesome flavours and fascinating history.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Château de Palaja last fall ! The location is perfect for a visit of the old city of Carcassonne ( if you have a car) , the city of Narbonne , the Canal du Midi , the Châteaux du Cathare and the wineries of the Languedoc - Roussillon . The Château itself... More

We stayed at this Chateau de Palaja, in Palaja, Carcassonne, France, for a unique experience, and we were rewarded. The chateau is very well run and exceptionally clean and quaint. The proprietor was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and welcoming. Our room was quiet and well organized. The breakfast was the very best one could ever find in France. The dining area... More
