My husband and I had a great stay at Chateau de Palaja. We stopped here for just one night (trust me we wish it was longer) and had a great stay. We were heading back from Barcelona and found that the Chateau was a great change of pace from the HUSTLE AND BUSTLE of Barcelona. The rooms were spacious and... More

After visiting Madrid and Barcelona my wife and I traveled to Carcassonne and stayed ate Chateau de Palaja. It was absolutely lovely. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Having just Visited 2 cities, waking up to the peaceful sound of birds and light rain made our stay there that much more pleasant. If you are planning to visit Carcassonne... More

Our first time to France and we could not have picked a better place to stay when visiting Carcassonne. The owners are very friendly and cater to French, Spanish, and English-speaking tourists. Our room was delightful, sporting a beautiful hybrid of new and old. The chateau was beautifully restored a few years back and the work was well worth it.... More

We loved our night at the Chateau de Palaja. The very friendly owners have restored this large chateau themselves - beautifully and tastefully. Being situated just outside of Carcassonne, you have plenty of scope to visit the many sites in this area and return to a very comfortable and welcoming hotel.

We did a quick weekend UK-Carcassonne. Chateau de Palaja was selected from TA and it was a good choice. The property is secluded with lovely gardens, but only a 10 minute drive to the Cite at Carcassonne. Amongst the highlights are: lovely garden and pool, friendly and professional reception, and very quiet and comfortable family room (junior suite). A fresh... More

This was a great hotel, 10 minutes drive from the Medieval city of Carcassonne. As I was driving there, I was wondering if I would feel like I was too far out of the action. Not so - Carcassonne has a unique energy, and it was a welcome relief to retreat to the Chateau de Palaja each evening. The owner,... More

We "discovered" this wonderful hotel in May 2015 and made sure that our annual visit to France included a return visit in June 2016. Sometimes, return visits can result in disappointment as memory can over rate a past experience. However, that was certainly not the case with Chateau de Palaja. We booked our stay directly with the hotel via the... More

Thank you to Tripadvisor members who wrote reviews. Because of you I chose to stay for two nights on our way to Spain. It was a very, very good choice. The exterior is amazing. The owners have lovingly restored this old building putting many hundreds of hours into making sure you have modern amenities alongside period features. The chateau stands... More

This beautiful old chateau has recently been renovated into a wonderful 12-room hotel. The owners are very present and helpful, the rooms are big and airy, it is set in a big quiet garden with an outdoor pool (not heated), and near Carcassonne. An idea place from which to explore this area. We were very happy to spend 3 nights... More

good alternative for hotels near Carcassonne, nice, comfortable, clean and full equiped rooms in an old french countryhouse castle. Complete breakfast and an excelent restaurant in the same building for romantic dinners. Spanish and english spoken. Very good relation price-quality.
