We enjoyed two nights here at half-board. As other reviewers have indicated, the surroundings are not quite as bucolic as the website indicates, and Couiza is not the most charming of towns, but the Chateau offered us an excellent dinner both nights and a comfortable, spacious room. Only two weak spots: breakfast on the first morning was a disaster (we arrived at 9:30 AM, well within the appointed hours, and there was simply no food); the second morning was fine. Also, if you are tall, you may want to inspect your room in advance: our room, large in other respects, had a very low and wide doorway. Despite taking care, I whacked my head hard on the door jamb: not a high point (pun intended) to the vacation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An imposing castle with a striking silhouette; a square building that opens into a courtyard, set in a lovely garden through which the river Aude flows. Built on the land of the Cathars, the castle bears the stamp of a place steeped in history. In the bedrooms of this 16th century listed building, a medieval atmosphere and modern comforts are skilfully combined. The same clever recipe works its magic in the reception rooms, the old chapel converted into a lounge and the dining rooms. ... more less
