A chateau in a beautiful setting of lovely well maintained grounds. The accommodation is of a high standard with modern chic decor. The bed was very comfortable and huge. The en-suite was roomy and well equipped. The owner was extremely helpful with suggestions of what to see and where to go to eat. She suggested seeing the medieval city of... More

A lovingly restored Chateau by the dedicated owners. It offers high class accommodation at a realistic price. Given its proximity to Carcassonne and the difficulties that can be encountered there with accessibility and parking, we will make Chateau de Palaja our first choice when travelling to this region each year to visit family. The rooms are very chic, the bed... More

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor (thank you again and again) and arrived late. They were spectacular and even arranged for us to eat in their restaurant (almost ready to close). Everyone was extremely eager to please, the accommodations and food were great and we will definitely stay there again.

We had booked for 1 night at the Chateau de Palaja and decided to returned for our last night. It's a lovely place, nice clean rooms and the most important a very friendly host (Isabel). Isabel was very friendly and helpful. We were suggested a restaurant in Carcassonne which was really nice. We also tried the restauarant next to the... More

This twelve room hotel in a chateau is wonderful. The owner Isabel really works hard to make you at home, and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very nicely appointed, and the breakfast was of a high standard in the French tradition. Being 5 km from the ancient city of Carcassonne proved not to be an issue at... More

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

I stayed with my wife, baby and mom in law for two nights at this magnificent place. I do recommend this place. Key features: medieval location, quiet, good breakfast, good restaurant close by. Landlady very friendly and helpful with good map material and advice.

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
