“Beautiful and charming, friendly and helpful... what more can you wish for?”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

This is a delightful and charming small hostel/hostel in the quintessential of French villages. After problems en route from the Dordogne with our car, we arrived late to find the staff and owners very helpful and still waiting to welcome us, to point us in the direction of food, and set us a table in the beautiful courtyard just in time to see the sun set. The next day, after a lovely breakfast, they helped us find accommodation the next night after a last minute change of itinerary.

The rooms are clean and simple but stylish. The staff are very friendly and the location peaceful and beautiful. Be sure to check out the graffiti wall in the garden park - a surreal surprise in such a small place. As for the church bell - can't say we noticed it after a few glasses of the excellent local wine and such a warm welcome.

We'd very much recommend Castelchambres highly and hope to be able to visit again in the future, with more time to spend lazily in such a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

Wonderful place in a quiet town. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and accommodating. The guests and regular patrons of the restaurant were all very pleasant and friendly people as well. I highly recommend Castelchambres.

The place is really nice and clean. The room where I stayed was remodeled, so it looks new and clean. The people are very friendly and relax. The breakfast was good and big. I had a good and relax time in the bar they have too. It is a small town and the landscape around the town is nice. In addition the price was convenient.

Wear earplugs at night. The church bell next door rings on the hour, all night. No problem, the knockout twentysomething daughter of the proprietor said - you'll get used to it after two or three nights.

That said, the room was clean and comfortable, and le patron and his staff really put themselves out for us when we arrived late. Nice people. Not inconveniently located, only ten Ks out from Carcassone, and easy to find.

Not a lot in this village - the only place to dine is at the bar/restaurant attached to the chambre, and it closes early. Not to worry, though - the folks at the bar wouldn't let us go to bed hungry, and whipped up a rather appetizing meal at short notice and reasonable cost.

What made this place for us was the warmth of the people in Malves - the patrons of the bar in the evening, le patron himself, his daughter serving breakfast. If you want a glimpse of into the lives of the vinticulturists of rural France, you'll try this place. I miss it already.
