Our identity


Palaja is backed by the first wooded hills of pines and holm oaks at the foot of the Corbières massif. Due to its location on the first foothills of the Corbières, the environment of Palaja is very varied and pleasant. 

Many paths or paths allow you to walk through moors of broom, thyme or other scrubland plants, to walk in the undergrowth, under pines or holm oaks, or to climb rocky slopes. An immediate environment that delights hikers, horseback riders or mountain bikers. 

The town includes what is called the "old village", about thirty houses around the church and the building that housed the school, the old town hall and the castle. The town is very large and joins the Lac de la Cavayère. 2200 inhabitants live there. Most work in tourism, viticulture, the army (presence of the 3rd Marine Infantry Parachute Regiment) or the hospital. Away from the agglomeration, there are 13 domains that we call in our region, campaigns. 

The Gothic village church dates from the 14th century. Classified as a Historic Monument, it has been the subject of an ambitious renovation program since 2003. Quality concerts take place there several times a year.

On the site of the old Oratory, a fountain flows from a nearby spring known in the Middle Ages for curing fevers. Nowadays, the fountain is no longer in use, but is still the subject of a procession on August 15.

The first writings found date from the 18th century, but the west tower (on the left when you are facing the castle) is probably older (16th century). This tower stood alone for a long time in the form of a dovecote.

The body of the castle was first built up to the main entrance gate.

The last tower was completed in 1913.

Georges Degrand (Baron de Beauvoir), former magistrate, prosecutor to the seneschal and interim mayor of Carcassonne, organized his succession in 1815.

His son, Jacques Degrand, a lawyer but also a poet in Occitan and French, established a water pipe with pipes and masonry called Aqueduct.

Louis and Jean Bary, 2 merchant brothers, bought this complex in 1844 and had to maintain the aqueduct. They built the east tower in 1913 and dug the rear passageway in 1867.

Mme Prieur, widow of Jean Louis Eugene Bary, sold the said Château de Palaja in 1960 to Edmond Sire.

In 2007, Catherine and Eric Remy bought and undertook the renovation of the castle to transform it into a hotel which now includes 12 spacious and different rooms, decorated by the care of the masters of the house.

The works lasted 3 and a half years and made it possible to modernize the site while trying to keep the period architectural elements (stone, fireplace, floor tiles, parquet floors).

You can consult a photo album at reception. It will give you a before-after overview of the work.


• During the work period, we used and/or reused materials present on site or in the surrounding area so as not to waste anything or unnecessarily repurchase.

• The furniture has been restored, salvaged and then revamped or transformed or built by salvaging steel from the site.

• The vanity tops are all made from the purchase of whole tree trunks that Eric learned to work with. 

• All windows are equipped with double glazing for better insulation.

• We directed rainwater to our well. This water is reused to water green spaces.

• All rooms and common areas are equipped with low-consumption light bulbs or LED bulbs.

• The entrance has a light trigger to save energy. 

• All taps and showers are equipped with a system that reduces the flow of water.

• The toilets are equipped with a water flow selector.

• The car park and the surroundings of the building are composed of a natural coating so as to let water penetrate for the environment.


The establishment is 100% non-smoking.

Animals are not allowed in the establishment.

It is imperative not to throw anything in the toilet (tampons, sanitary napkins). Please use the trash can.
