Le Château de Riell

9 km (5½ miles) north of Prades, Molitg-les-Bains, Occitania, 66500, France

An eccentric late-19th-century castle that blends baroque style and English elements, this Relais & Châteaux property welcomes guests who want to enjoy its tranquil mountain setting or soak in the healing waters of Molitg-les-Bains. A Michele Guérard–trained chef evokes the spirit of the south at the château's Restaurant du Chatelain, preparing dishes inspired by this region's bounty.

PROS

  • rooftop swimming pool
  • spectacular views of Mont Canigou
  • superb restaurant

CONS

  • though a bus connects Molitg to Prades, a car is more practical
  • odd accents may be a bit much for some (but the zebra-print carpet on the stairs somehow works)
