“An elegant chateau in central Mirepoix - an ideal location for exploring the Languedoc and Cathar region and its castles. Not far from Carcasonne, Toulouse, Albi, and at the foot of the Pyrenees. Either a luxurious place to relax after exploring, or a weekend break with friends. ”

Hotel Review

Well positioned in the centre of Mirepoix, the Relais Royal run by Rogier van den Biggelaar and Gerwin Rutten presents itself as an oasis of luxury to the weary traveler. Each guest is welcomed personally by the proprietors and shown to one of nine beautifully decorated rooms. Rooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes, many preserving their original features, but despite this, all modcons have been seamlessly interwoven from LED televisions to air conditioning (no mean feat in a house of this age). Try a glass of Blanquette (the original champagne) in the cosy salon in preparation for the menu degustation served in the formal restaurant. Afterwards repair to the courtyard overlooking the swimming pool. Recommended for a couple of days rest and recuperation (Carcassonne airport is only 30mins away!) - and as a fantastic base for exploring the Languedoc and Cathar castles. The Relais Royal would also work as a weekend getaway with friends where private dinners can be hosted in the converted old kitchen.
