Travellers' Choice
Cap de Castel is a charming small hotel, set within the protected "Cathare" property, originally built in the 13th century on the lands of the Lords of Hautpoul. Ten beautifully renovated large bedrooms, in two 17th century buildings, reflect the local Languedoc Roussillon colours and stimulate your senses. The spectacular view embraces the neighbouring roman tiled roofs, the Lauragais hills, and the foothills of the Pyrenees and Black Mountain.

This gorgeous hotel in Puylaurens was a real highlight of our month in France. The terrace, pool and restaurant area with great views across the valley was really picturesque and a nice spot to kick back and relax. Since the hotel does not have a lot of rooms it isn’t crowded and bar service here was a plus. Enjoyed the restaurant very much, lovely ambience at night and excellent food. We had chamber neuf and no complaints here either. Oversized, beautiful ceilings, a sense of history mixed with modern lux. The best part of staying here was the warm welcome from our host David Henri. We felt like we had come home and we were very well looked after.... just perfect.

I found myself with two days in the area, not wanting to return to Toulouse, and discovered the charming Cap de Castel. Located in a quiet, non-touristy village, this boutique hotel is both charming and off the radar. The rooms, located in a 1900’s former distillery, are both charming and spacious. This isn’t a five star hotel, nor does it try to be, but if you love unassuming hidden gems, this is the one of them. It has the feel of a comfortable, quiet country home. The property is quaint and beautiful, with a patio and pool area overlooking the Pyrenees in the distance. Service is friendly and prompt, and the restaurant is simple and sublime. Dinner al fresco here is a hard thing to top. I don’t often write reviews but this was worth making the effort. Quaint, off the beaten path, unassuming and charming describe Cap de Castel perfectly.

Thank you to David, his sister, Pascal and wonderful staff. We had an amazing holiday celebrating a special 80th Birthday week. You all looked after us with great care, perfection and attention to detail. All our meals were worthy of a Michelin star and were creative stylish cuisine. We enjoyed the waiter singing to us and the music and dancing. It is a wonderful court yard setting with dining inside or outside. The pool is set in a beautiful garden with lovely plants and a Love Island style area to chill out. The views are panoramic across to the Pyranees. The rooms are all amazing, clean and well decorated with lovely local L’Occitaine products in the en-suite bathrooms. We loved the interesting tours, with a fantastic guide Colin Duncan Taylor, that you arranged for us so we could discover what was in the surrounding area. His book Lauragais on the history of the area is a good read. Thank you for arranging the taxi transfers to and from Toulouse Airport. Your attention to detail was amazing. You made our stay such a special time for us to spend together. This is my second visit and I will return again and recommend it as a special place to celebrate any special event or holiday. Thank you. Andrea

This is an amazing little gem of a hotel. The view from beside the swimming pool is quite lovely, with rolling fields and the Pyrenees on the horizon. Like all good hotels, there is quality in the furnishings and amenities, AND it has a homely, welcoming feel to it. This is undoubtedly due to the staff who are helpful and friendly and do their utmost to please. Our room was thoughtfully equipped and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. The food is delicious and high quality, and the wines reasonably priced and well-chosen. We are planning another trip to France next year, and will definitely spend a few days here again.
