Domaine de Palatz is a charming 17th century estate nestled in the heart of Cathar Country, France. We offer delightful accommodation on a bed & breakfast and self catering basis. Our stone gîtes and chambres d'hôte combine rustic charm with the modern amenities you would expect, all in spacious natural surrounds.
Great place for the soul
A quiet and peaceful place with colourful landscapes. After the trip, I have very warm and vivid impressions, and the feeling as if I had come to visit relatives. The rooms are very spacious, bright and comfortable. Domaine de Palatz – a harmonious combination of high service and comfort. I’ll be sure to come back again.
Denise & Michael are awesome hosts, they are so welcoming and make you feel right at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with them. Wonderful people! The property is beautiful; very peaceful with breathtaking views. If you want somewhere to kick back with a glass of wine I can’t imagine a better place.
Peaceful estate in wine country
Friendly, family-run property situated amongst various wineries and also close to Carcassonne. Buildings with character, great swimming pool with summer house, and nice walks around the property.
Tranquil, relaxing, lovely holiday
If you are looking for a truly relaxing place, this would be in our top ten. The gites are wonderful, and the pool was brilliant for our four year old (and us). Our thanks to Denise and her family for their genuine but unobtrusive hospitality.
First Class Hospitality
Denise, Michael and James were wonderful hosts and have great stories as well as useful suggestions on what to do. Stunning views and the room itself amazing, very therapeutic. By far one of the best places we have stayed and we look forward to returning again.
Gem of an accessible retreat in rural France
All the aspects of an idyllic rural retreat with excellent wine, food and those picturesque villages nearby. Throughout, the property is clean and has excellent wifi with an internet connection much faster than can normally be expected in rural France.
Just brilliant gites and wonderful hospitality
Sometimes when you travel quite a bit you can get jaded with how ordinary and how much of a muchness everywhere can be. Be prepared to experience genuine hospitality, brilliant facilities and a truly differentiated experience. What makes it all really special is Denise and her family. Just brilliant.
Peace and Tranquility
From the moment you arrive till your reluctant departure you will love this place. The setting and ambience are perfect and the rooms are slowly being transformed by the new owners into stylish havens of luxury. Cannot recommend highly enough!
First Class in every respect
Our room was immaculately presented, massive & warm and decorated with attention to the details that everyone loves but most other places completely miss … a real ‘romantic’ feel, but not in a tacky cliché way, and all the comforts of home.
Best B&B I have been to
Beautiful bedroom with a large bathroom. The owners are English so if your French isn’t so good that helps. Breakfast was tasty and not only croissants & jam. Only 20 minutes from the airport and you’re in a different world. This is the one I will return to.
It’s a busy time of year here in Cathar Country as the annual harvest, or vendange, gets underway!
It’s fun to get out and about in the historical, beautiful villages of the Languedoc.
