We, a group of 11 people including US university presidents, their spouses, and colleagues, were instantly charmed by the warmth that greeted us as we entered this 16th century era chateau turned into a hotel. A hotel worker took us to our rooms which were comfortable and well appointed overlooking the river Aude. The meals were delicious and the owner, Vincent, was clearly a wine connoisseur who guided us as if he were a professional sommelier. The group gathered often in the evenings in the courtyard for an aperitif and conversation. Even in October the outdoor pool was refreshing. We planned to stay for 8 nights but a sudden flash flood that overtook the region interrupted our plans. The owners, Vincent and Isabel, swiftly took action, ushering us safely out and making alternate reservations at a nearby hotel. They were caring and kind, ensuring our satisfaction while in the midst of a devastating flood. They will open again in April 2019. If you are looking for a truly French experience in gorgeous country with expert hospitality, the chateau is the place to go.
