We loved the chateau de Palaja, located in a tiny at picturesque village outside Carcassonne. The chateau was spotless, nice free parking. The building is beautiful but more like a house not like a castle. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful. I absolutely adored the garden an the swimming pool, so quiet, clean..was marvellous. Our room was nice but not as luxurious as I thought for the price, the bathroom was really small with only one shower. We did not take the breakfast as we thought it was very expensive and was not included, we trade it for a lovely croissant and café au lait in Carcassonne. Overall, it was charming but not the best value for money for the south of France. It has a good location, 5 mins only by car from the main parking of la citadelle.

only 4-5 minutes drive from la cite is this excellent chateau. large modern rooms within a traditional looking house. very good quality regarding bathrooms, matresses, wooden objects. The outdoors is wonderful. Sitting area under aged trees, big garden, cosy swimming pool, and the beautifull old bridge that leads to the free parking area. The owners are great guys-hosts speaking fluently english and willing to give you all the information you need to enhance your stay. The village itself is very small but is worth a walk around for half an hour. there is also a playground for the kids if they seem too tired of visiting sites. If you stay in a hotel close to the fortress you will have to pay much more to get similar quality. So if you have a car don't even think about it. It is only 5 minutes away and it is very easy to park near the gates of carcassonne. Hope to be back soon.

Very friendly & welcoming, quiet, great service, stylishly furnished & comfortable bedrooms. We stayed in a family suite in the eaves - luxurious as far as the children were concerned and plenty of space for 4. Easy to get to Carcassonne and on to Toulouse. Only downside was the restaurant (next to, but separately managed) which was expensive for what it was and a little disappointing. Lovely setting, service and atmosphere and child friendly but short, cheap wine list and limited choice of food, even before they ran out of some options.

Spent four nights in this beautifully renovated village castle, some 10' drive from the splendid fortified cité de Carcassonne. The rooms have 'personality', the breakfast is complete and can be taken in- as well as outdoors, the lady of the house is very friendly and helpful. A fine restaurant can be found on the premises, a decent pizza and good-priced menu of the day can be eaten in the village. In all a very nice experience, recommended!

Room Tip: Obviously, sleeping in an old castle means that you can experience some creaking floors. Not that it annoys but next time we'd ask a second floor room.

Having stayed in 'modernised' chateaux before, I didn't have exceptionally high hopes for Chateau Palaja, but it was lovely. The rooms and public areas are immaculate, the renovations have been done very tastefully, and Mme Remy the owner is friendly and efficient. Breakfast is continental only, but everything is fresh and tasty. The pool area is nice, although the steps down to it are a bit scary with a 3 year old in tow! The hotel is a 5-10 min drive from Carcassonne, but there is a lovely restaurant next door, and also a nice cafe bar within a 5 minute walk. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. My only negative was that our room slept 4 people but only had a small wardrobe with about 10 hangers and no other storage space whatsoever

Room Tip: La Cite is a gorgeous suite right at the top: bit of a trek up the stairs, but worth it
