We spent several nights here a few years ago and knew that we wanted to return, even if it was out of our way. We got the chance this past April and stayed two more nights. The 45euro dinner with wine included is still amazing. Portions seemed a little smaller, but still gluttonous and worth every penny. This time we opted to stay in the least expensive room, located in the old stable I think, which set a different tone than staying in the main building. It was not the exciting room we remembered. But we did look at other available rooms, more expensive, and they didn't look worth the money. Having traveled far more extensively through France, the Chateau just looks rustic. That said, dinner here is hard to beat. And although the bed appeared rustic as well, it was very comfortable.
As we were travelling for seven weeks, we had started finding our own breakfasts at local boulangeries, but we would have been better served eating at the Chateau as the location is quite remote and boulangeries are few and far between. Since we had already seen Carcassone on our previous visit, we went to St. Hilaire, home of the first sparkling wine, and from there we drove up the mountain to a local Blanquette winery. Very enjoyable day.
Sometimes its better not to repeat memorable stays, but although a little disappointed in the lodging, we are still happy with two lovely dinners.
