The story of a castle
in the heart of the Cathar country, in Occitania, Aude, near Carcassonne

In Couiza, A place full of stories and emotions!

At the beginning the castle was the alliance of the Voisin family with the Ducs de Joyeuse. From this wedding was born the Castle between 1540 and 1560. Be immersed in a medieval and Renaissance setting.

A unique Castle Hotel 4* and gastronomic Restaurant

A strong and unique Experience for a Romantic Stay in an atypical place steeped in history and surrounded by nature.
That's the "real" castle life in the heart of the Cathar Country!

The spirit of the Duc Anne de Joyeuse, sweetheart of the king Henri III, and fond of big celebrations, has certainly participated in the rebirth of the Castle as an elegant Hotel in the beginning of the 21st century.
