This hotel is really lovely. Very well presented chateau with well furnished and decorated rooms. Mme Remy pays close attention to serving her guests insisting on carrying our heavy cases despite my protests. The hotel has a lovely rural feel, nice lounge and good buffet breakfast. Call the hotel directly for better rates than Hotels.com etc......

The Chateau is a very short drive to the medieval old town of Carcassonne. The grounds around the Chateau are beautiful and allow for nice walks and scenery. The rooms, showers, bath were recently updated and beautiful. The restaurant next door to the hotel is superb. It is run by two brothers that do their very best to provide great... More

An excellent choice for our 7 day stay in and around Carcassonne. Mme Remy is a quite perfect host and her English (and Spanish!) excellent also. Chateau de Palaja is delightfully situated and furnished. We had a large Junior Suite and large bathroom with both bath and shower. Queen size bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was very good en buffet... More

This is a 'boutique' hotel. Room was huge more like a mini-suite with great comfortable bed and some settees and tables. Bathroom was equally good with a separate bath and shower. As we were on the top of the chateau under the roof the windows were small and the natural light was low. This is not a full service hotel.... More

What a hidden little gym. Wanted to stay outside Carcassonne but not too far. Came across this quaint little Chateau through Tripadvisor. It is situated in Palaja on a hill in a beautiful secluded location about 5-10 minutes by car. You walk over a bridge from the car park to get to the Chateau. The grounds which I understand are...

Really enjoyed our two night stay in September. Beautiful location just a few minutes drive from Carcassonne. Unusual and quirky accomodation which we loved. The owners are great and really happy to offer assistance. Definitely hope to visit again next year. Breakfast is fab too with lots of local produce.

Comfortable room and good breakfast. Pleasant location within easy driving distance of Carcassonne's old city. Excellent staff with good knowledge of local attractions and very wiling to assist with recommendations and booking in local restaurants etc. Recommended!

The chateau is only 5-10 mins from the walled city of Carcassonne, and is beautifully located. You walk across a small bridge from the car park to enter the grounds and there are lovely gardens and a swimming pool. The interior has been tastefully renovated to keep the feeling of history yet provide all the mod cons you'd expect. Our... More

If you don't want to stay in the old city, this is the only place to stay! It is fabulous. The rooms are spacious and immaculate in every respect. The hotel is beautifully situated five kilometres from the castle, with large lawns, an excellent pool and outstanding ambience. We enjoyed a glass Of wine under shady trees on the lawn... More
