This beautiful building was still a castle 600 years ago, but today the Château de Salettes has been completely renovated and transformed into a fine design hotel. Its majestic walls house 18 spacious rooms with minimalist design and all comforts. The kitchen serves gourmet meals focusing on seasonal products. The hotel is also a wine estate. This means you can taste wines from the estate on a daily basis. A true gem in one of the most beautiful regions of the country, where you can discover lots of medieval sites and the Musée Toulouse-Lautrec!
Caractère customers receive a complimentary bottle of wine from the estate.
This hotel is open from May to early October.
Check-in is possible from 4 pm. Check-out is before 11 am.
This imposing château, built between the 13th and 15th centuries, came into the ownership of the Le Net family, owners of the surrounding vineyards, in 1994. They have completely renovated it into an extraordinary design hotel.
All rooms are spacious and comfortable and decorated in a minimalist design style. They overlook the valley or the garden. They feature tiled or parquet floors, a bathroom with bathtub or shower and sometimes a jacuzzi, bathrobes, slippers, a hairdryer, and a separate toilet. Some rooms have a terrace.
In the Grand Confort rooms, you will enjoy a minimalist design combined with the authenticity of the historic castle. Some rooms are located on the ground floor and have a terrace with panoramic views over the vineyards.
The heated outdoor swimming pool at the foot of the vineyards is open from early May to late September. Sun loungers, shower and towels are provided.
