Chateau de Cavanac
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Cavanac
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This hotel is about 3 miles from Carcassonne and is ideally situated to visit the medieval city.
It is difficult to park at Carcassonne as parking is limited. It is best therefore to check in at this hotel and get a taxi.
Chateau Cavanac is fairly old in it's own right. Rooms and bathrooms have very high ceilings but are more than adequate, with plenty of towels. The room lighting is dark and the wife had difficulty putting make up on. The Chateau obviously is very French style and covers a wide area, with the lodgings in a seperate building. The two dinning areas in another part and reception in another building. The car park is very large and can accomodate at least 50-60 cars.

The restaurant had tremendous atmosphere and it was very obvious that this was frequented by the locals as it was very busy. This did not make the service any slower as it was spot-on and the staff were extremely friendly. Food was pretty good too. Counters of fish and meat were on display and was extremely fresh.
Breakfast was also very good with plenty of choice and lots of on site fresh bakery being available.

Reception staff were also very friendly, this being very important as first impressions count for a lot.

Overall a good visit and slightly expensive

This is a regular treat for us when visiting the area (which happens to be very often). The château is extraordinary with amazing surroundings. Its peaceful with everything you would expect. The food is out of this world with a varied "set" menu with something for everyone. A stay is a must as the wine is included in the set menu price.
Every time we have stayed there has been something new to experience. The hosts are very welcoming and i am yet to discover anywhere better in the region.

Room Tip: Each room is individually designed. so there is something for everyone.

Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit juices and delicious cheese and salami.

I have a holiday home about 30 mins from the chateau. We have eaten here many times and it never fails to deliver. We have stayed overnight sometimes as with the wine provided with the meal driving afterwards would not be an option. The set menu is so varied that the choice is wonderful. They seem to change the menu every year but keep some of the main dishes. A great venue for a special occasion. If its in the summer it is essential to book a table outside as it is too warm inside in high summer.

Room Tip: All rooms are different and each is very nice

My French family has eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and I was lucky enough to join them in August for dinner. The food was a real treat and the atmosphere was great. For the starter I had pan fried foie gras with fig, followed by magret de canard and then creme brulee for dessert. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone.

After seeing the website and visiting the hotel, we were really impressed...by the website photographer. What looks like a little gem of French luxury turns out to be a rather overpriced victim of the passage of time. You can feel the individual springs and horsehair in the upholstery and the last time I heard water that noisy, I was overlooking the falls at Iguassu.
But I forgive them everything for the restaurant. I swear there were more people in there on a Thursday night in October than in the rest of the town, and with good reason. This was a quality offering. Five courses to satisfy the most discerning palatte with lobster, foie gras in fig sauce, suckling pig, langoustines, local cheeses. The wine would win no prizes, but then, as the receptionist put it, this is not Bordeaux. I could not possibly stay more than a night, as my liver would not take it, but if you like your hotels quirky and your food sublime, this could well be the place to stay when visiting Carcassonne

Stayed here for 1 night on our way north, well worth a visit, and only 10 minutes by car to the centre of CARCASSONNE.

The Hotel is a big old house, the rooms all have names and i assume all a bit different, so if you intend to stay here , check out their web site to choose a room. they do a room only rate, with Breakfast an extra at 12 euro a head. rooms are big, with AC, but decorated with old style furniture, and tiled floors. we had the rose pompom room, wich had a great view over the vines at the rear of the Hotel.

A bottle of water in the room and a couple of real glasses would have been nice ( they had plastic glass things in a plastic sealed bag ).

the pool area and tennis courts were a little sad looking when we were there, it was the end of September and a bit out of season

we would go back again if we were in the area, it's just to far south to go more often.





The restaurant is the real star of this place, a great set menu for 45 euros a head, with 3 bottles of wine included, the red and rose were not to bad, but the white not to our taste. again look at the web site to see the menu, you will not be left wanting more, we sat there for 3 hours. Booking is a must.

we did ask reception for an iron, as my wife wanted to press a few things, we had ben touring around for over a week. but they said there was no iron, or house keeping service.

the Chateau is in a small village with no other bars or Restaurants.

Room Tip: check their web site to pick your room
