“Even better under new ownership !!!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This Domaine always had a good reputation - but now, under the new ownership of Denise and Michael, the decor is vastly improved and the attention to details and the services offered by this couple are truly superb!
The owners were kind enough to give me a full tour of this magnificent properyt, comprising three gites and several B&B rooms, plus the magnificent grounds of around 27 acres! Not forgetting the huge swimming pool., completely safety gated, and a very roomy pool house!
The newly refurbished "White Room" and its adjoining bathroom in the main house, is a joy to behold- extremely stylish, and very comfortable. Denise has wonderful taste and her attention to detail is second to none. Michael is a superb "mine host" !
The property, gites and grounds are most attractive, and over this year, you can look forward to additional high-end styling by Denise, as she works her way through the property, putting her high standard stamp on it. In addition, a new high-class website is online, which really shows off this property., Nothing is too much trouble for Denise and Michael, which is being reflected by the high numbers of bookings being received . Whether staying overnight or in one of the superb gites, you will absolutely love the relaxing aura of this place in the midst of beautiful scenery. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. This is real value for money!

A Great Experience!!
After a day spent discovering the region’s Cathar castles, the Domaine’s swimming pool is the perfect place to unwind. As evening draws in, enjoy an exquisite barbacue and have a good and interesting conversation with the owners with magnificent views of the vineyards around with a glass wine of the area, The Domaine elegantly blends traditional architecture from 18th century with classic provençal decor. Guest rooms feature ample living space, wood panelling furnishings, to create a luxurious haven in this enchanting domaine. All have views, where guests can enjoy panoramic views of vineyards!

Room Tip: All rooms are very quiet and you´ll wake to birdsong, truly a bucolic place!! All rooms are comfort...

We returned to Domaine de Palatz in August, having visited a few times before. It was a good decision. Plenty of activities to occupy the children and a fabulous pool. It was even lovelier than we remembered, the welcome, the gite and the unspolit scenery made it the perfect place to really relax. Everything you need for a lovely holiday. I could not recommend this highly enough. Go and you will be hooked!

Domaine de Palatz is a real little gem in the heart of beautiful unspoilt France. Our rustic gite was tastefully decorated with interesting artwork adorning all the walls. The communal courtyard was a pleasure to relax in on returning from a day exploring the locality - it is painted in muted rust shades which forms the perfect backdrop for the vivid colours of the flowers and plants growing there. We were surrounded by vineyards and the local villages are pretty and unspoilt. Iola gave us many good tips on places to visit and her suggestions were always spot on. At the end of a hot day, of which there were many, it was a treat to plunge in to the generously sized swimming pool. We had a wonderful holiday.

A beautiful location with stunning views. The gite we had was very pretty, a good size with our own parking area and private patio. The pool was most welcome and wonderfully clean. The owner, Iola is as charming as the setting of her Gites. She was friendly, helpful and welcoming. I feel sure Domains de Palatz will call us back into its fold again and again. A fantastic place to go and unwind.

Spent a weeks holiday in a gite at Domaine de Palatz and did not want to leave. Its position is heaven in the wonderful countryside .Views to die for. Hospitality was so friendly but not obtrusive. Always on hand if you if you wanted information or help. The gite was spotless, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The weather was hot so it was great to have the use of the pool. We had a couple of barbecues using the equipment provided and dined under the covered porch. We had many trips out to places of interest and can't wait to return to see more of the area.

Domaine de Palatz's best score goes to its location and overall charm. The setting is beautiful, surrounded by vineyards and long views to the mountains. Our gite, very rustic in style, (Tulip) was comfortably furnished downstairs, with a large living room and own small patio. It sleeps 3, with the single bed on the landing, rather than in its own room, with access to the bathroom via the main bedroom - not ideal for some but adequate for us. Kitchen OK but kitchenware indicates that most guests probably limit themselves to a simple BBQ (there is one right outside, with charcoal etc provided.) The pool is a great size for the 3 gites sharing, with sunbeds and good quality umbrellas (deposit payable). The shared covered patio/BBQ area made for some very sociable evenings with other guests - we sampled plenty of the local wine :) Great location for visiting the Languedoc region - highlights were Carcassonne, Minerve, Lagrasse, Mirepoix and Peyrepertuse (a long drive through the mountains towards the Pyrenees, and for an active afternoon, Total Wipeout style inflatables on Lac de Cavayere just outside Carcassonne.) Beautiful area and very pleasant property, which could be truly fantastic with a few small upgrades to enhance the guest experience. A great base for a holiday mixing relaxation with a bit of culture and history. We flew to Toulouse, a worthwhile city stop and an easy 1.5 hour drive.

Room Tip: Tulip has its own patio, a bonus if you don't always want to socialise with other guests.
