Relais Royal.

Hotel and restaurant in a village. France,Mirepoix

Unique in the world: The elegant Relais Royal makes you succumb to the charm of the inner courtyard, garden, swimming pool, majestic rooms and stone walls dressed in winding ivy.

Rogier Van den Biggelaar, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

Historians are divided on the etymology of the name Mirepoix. For some, it comes from the Occitan language and means “he who watches fish”, while for others it comes from Latin and means “he who looks at the mountain”. Indeed, the experts will probably never agree when it comes to this little medieval castle town located between the clear waters of the river Hers and the impressive Tabe mountain range, except on one thing: its irresistible charm. It is here that the elegant Relais Royal hotel immerses you in its romantic atmosphere. Succumb to the charm of the inner courtyard, garden, swimming pool, majestic rooms and stone walls dressed in winding ivy. The hotel is also ideally situated to explore Carcassonne and its majestic Cathare castles.
