Our first room, L'Olivier, was outside the main chateau (as expected); appearances were fine (good view of Mt. Canigou, reasonable size, terrace). Unfortunately, we discovered during the first night (when drapes were drawn) that the room reeked of mildew/mold. When we complained the next morning, we were offered another, inferior room (Pigeonnier)--view of the restaurant, no terrace, smaller); at least it did not smell. We were told that no other rooms were available. Given the condition of the first room, we could imagine that was the case. Our experience here was not that expected at a four-star hotel or a member of Relais et Chateaux. Perhaps if you stay in the main chateau you can expect better, those outside the chateau are clearly second-class guests. (At check-out, we were invited into the chateau to see the view from an upper floor--such hospitality for the peasants!)
