Authentic small rural chateau with all expected facilities in the middle of wine growing area. Food/ wines excellect served in garden when weather permits.It is good quiet place to stay to visit Carcassonne/ Narbonne which are very busy.

Good choice of pools - outdoor swimming lake, outdoor pool and indoor pool. We went in early June which was perfect because it was fairly quiet and peaceful. Nice villa - quite large with good facilities but the beds and sofa were a little uncomfortable. Better than expected though, for the price. Surrounding area and Carcassonne just beautiful, but you definitely need a car.
This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The room was wonderful. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The restaurant was closed for dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday when we were there but we had breakfast in the hotel and that was excellent. The garden is an oasis of quiet after a day of sight-seeing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. A truly wonderful experience and the highlight of our visit to France.
Driving up we were a little surprised at the location (next to a sports field) however as soon as we walked in we were blown away with the wonderful courtyard and building itself as well as the friendly staff. Super stay, wish we had longer to enjoy the pool and garden. Dinner was AMAZING!! Wonderful, romantic stay :)

I aim to come back here time and time again..
Though the reception is closed 12:00-16:00, they opened to allow myself, and also an elderly French couple to do a bag drop at 13:30
This allowed me to spend the afternoon in the citadel. Left out of the hotel grounds, you can literally walk into the front entrance of the citadel, only 500m west, past homes with olive trees and other fruits growing in the garden.
The kitchen itself is excellent, fridge, dish washer, 2 ring cooker, kettle, microwave and every cooking utensil you need for your stay... though 3-4 wine bottle openers is a bit excessive... at least they had the important bread knife for French loaves!!!
Approximately 700m east and the next road down is Casino and LIDL supermarkets. A nice walk to explore the local streets and homes.
Unknown to me at the time of departure is that he airport city bus which leaves the SNCF railway also calls at a hotel just up the road from the citadel... so save tired feet and go there rather than the SNCF... this is the last stop before the airport!!
A small, family owned hotel with 4 rooms, spotlessly clean and very sympathetically decorated. Our room was large and very comfortable.
The hosts were friendly, helpful, and spoke several languages, including English.
If visiting this part of the France, a great place to stay.
