Very unique and interesting place.Posted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Building itself and food

Very interesting accommodation and a fabulous dinner. Although wifi is there,,,,,a bit spotty due, I imagine, to building itself.

A beautiful memorable hotelPosted Aug 7, 2013
Pros: It's a castle and it has a pool
Cons: Bedroom. Ok but nothing special
Location: Castle was great but you need a car to get about.
We visited the hotel in July'13 for 2 nights. The castle is beautiful and unique place to stay. It has an excellent pool which is quiet and relaxing. There's an excellent restaurant and the food is to a high standard, but not cheap if your on a tight budget. It's lovely to eat outside in the courtyard in the evening. The bedroom was pleasant with a nice bathroom. The main attraction is Carcassonne which is definately worth a day trip but it is approx. 30 mins away by car. There's also a Kayaking/ conoeing centre next to the hotel.

medieval castlePosted Jul 24, 2013
Pros: It's a 16th century castle
Cons: I could have overlooked it as the photos on their website don't do it its full justice
Location: off the main route down from Toulouse to Perpignan.
I thought it might be fun for the kids to stay in a medieval castle and found this Chateau on Expedia. It's truly fantastic - the images on their website don't do it justice. My kids (and my wife for that matter) were thoroughly impressed. Staff were very friendly and patient with my children. I can only comment on the breakfast which was healthy, rustic and relaxing. The evening meal didn't start service until 7:30pm which was too late for my children so we ate in the nearby village, but I'd liked to have given it a try as the menu looked sumptuous. If you were looking for a romantic trip as a couple then I'd certainly recommend this place and if like me you have a family then even more so. The only slight downside is that there is no kitchen facility during the day, so if you're looking for a mid afternoon sandwich you'll need to take it with you beforehand. This isn't a criticism, I only mention it so that you go prepared, if your children are like mine and are constantly on their feet and hungry throughout the day. If you're travelling down from Paris to Barcelona this is an ideal place for a stopover with lots of character and charm.

La vie de chateauPosted Jul 24, 2013
Pros: The castle itself
Location: Half an hour south of carcassone
This is a complete castle experience The setting is great, nice pool, little river flowing next to it and the food deserves a Michelin star, I only wish I had stayed there longer I would recommend it to anyone wishing to travel back to the time of the cathares

It is a nice hotel but the restaurant has a fixed and somewhat expensive menu. It is foolish to pay 19 euros for a salad!! The food options need to be expanded and prices to become more reasonable. Also the restaurant service is very slow.

Medieval CastlePosted Nov 11, 2011 on Hotels.com
We were exploring the incredible Cathar region of the Aude Valley and discovered this hotel. Or should I say Chateau! Tucked away in the small village is an incredible restored Chateau along a beautiful small river. The grounds are immaculate with tennis court and swimming pool and the walls have recreations of Cathar inquisition and history. There is a wonderful courtyard for breakfast and cocktails and the service staff are amazing and friendly. The room we had was incredible and decorated with four poster bed and portraits of kings and dukes. We were transported back centuries and had a restfull relaxing night's sleep. Should also mentioned the formal dining room that was packed with guests and served an unforgettable 3 course meal at an affordable price. We would recommend this to anyone staying in the area and will return for sure!
