Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

With its wealth of historic towns, varied natural beauty and delectable dining, this region of France is a real delight, and rich with historic, scenic and cultural sites. Most of the Aude department lies under the influence of the Mediterranean climate, but it is nonetheless a very diverse landscape. Extending East to the Mediterranean are great plains of vines and orchards. To the south rears the mighty barrier of the Pyrenees, dividing France and Spain; west lies Toulouse and the Atlantic, and northwards we have the rugged and beautiful Natural Park of Haut-Languedoc.

Domaine de Palatz is situated right in the middle of Cathar country, and there are many nearby areas of historic (even prehistoric) interest, easily reached by car. From neolithic dolmens and menhirs (within walking distance of our property), to Greco-Roman ruins and the magnificent medieval villages, castles and abbeys that are scattered across the countryside, the region offers endless natural resources and opportunities for adventure and excitement. Hiking, horse riding, cycling, mountain-biking, golfing, kayaking, fishing, sightseeing, wine tasting, dining... there's something for every taste!

You can also wander along the shady banks of the Canal du Midi, or perhaps head further afield with day trips to Albi, Nimes, Montpellier, or the beaches of the Mediterranean, which are less than an hour away by car. And of course you must let yourself be tempted by the pleasures of the palate: the great wines and gastronomy of the Aude, in the heart of the largest, oldest vineyards in France.

Carcassonne

Carcassonne (20mins drive) is the largest walled city in Europe, the fascinating medieval "La Cité". Despite its fairy tale appearance, Carcassonne has all the conveniences of a modern city with shops of every kind, supermarkets, cinemas and an abundance of fine restaurants.

There is an 18 hole golf course in Carcassonne. It has a lovely restaurant that provides reasonably priced lunches. Closer to the Domaine is the famous Cathar fortress, Chateaux de Lastours. The nearest village, Laure Minervois, is one km away with two grocery shops, a post office, doctor, bakery and also tennis courts. Larger supermarkets are available in Carcassonne and Trebes. There is a beautiful lake just five minutes walk from the property.

Domaine de Palatz is owned and run by the Drinkwater family: Denise, Michael, Jodie and James. Collectively we have decades of experience in hospitality, business development, customer service and marketing.

Originally from the United Kingdom, and resident in France for the last ten years, we have travelled extensively throughout the world. Our move to the Domaine is the culmination of a dream to bring our experience of first class service, accommodation and food to all who come to stay.
