Guest Facilities

We appreciate how important it is to feel relaxed and “at home” when on holiday. In addition to the facilities you will find in your own private accommodation, we want you to feel relaxed in every part of Domaine de Palatz whilst you are with us.


The property grounds are ideal for picnicking, long walks, and simply relaxing in beautiful natural surrounds. We have 25 acres of unspoiled countryside for guests to explore, including woodland, vineyards, a bubbling stream, landscaped garden and terraces, organic kitchen garden, shaded seating areas, and numerous romantic spots with panoramic views.

Our swimming pool is twelve metres by six metres and shared between the cottages and chambres d’hote. With underwater flood lights, it is totally enclosed for security, thus offering a sheltered haven for sunbathing, with a fully equipped pool house and terrace. There is a separate BBQ area and private covered courtyard which is perfect for al fresco dining and enjoying those long summer evenings with a glass or two. This area includes a number of dining tables to seat larger parties.

We have a small library in the stables with an eclectic mix of books, including many of the favourites for the region. You are more than welcome to borrow these throughout your stay. We also have a SONOS audio system and an extensive media library with a wide range of TV and film for you to enjoy at leisure.

Situated close to Carcassonne, Domaine de Palatz is in the heart of Cathar Country, and a wonderful place to discover new wines of the Minervois, Corbieres and Malepere. The property is close to the beautiful villages of Caunes Minervois with its famous Abbey, Minerve and its wonderful gorge, Paraza and the Canal du Midi, Narbonne the Roman capital, Cailhol with its mystery walk, and Lagrasse, the prettiest village in the Aude. Although Cathar Country is one of the few remaining unspoiled areas of South France, the region is still bustling with things to do and sights to see, all of which are covered here in more detail.

Domaine de Palatz is the perfect destination for people of any age and parties large or small: We offer you an environment where you can truly relax and unwind in tranquil surrounds that are full of character, culture and history. But don’t just take our word for it: take a look at some recent TripAdvisor, Facebook and Airbnb reviews from our many new and returning guests. And if that’s not enough to convince you, here’s ten more reasons why you should stay with us.
