Woodinville, Washington
Reviewed 4 August 2016

We had 3 nights at Chai Catalan. The rooms were well appointed and wonderfully air conditioned. Pascale gave us great ideas (and directions) for where to eat and places to go during the day that were less touristy. After a busy day it was nice to take a dip in the pool before heading out to dinner.

This is exactly what you wish for when booking a chambre d'hotes. A warm welcome from Pascale and Tim, a beautiful (big) courtyard garden with pool for the summer, bags of charm and lovely large bedrooms with terrific shower rooms. The rooms at Le Chai Catalan have been purpose designed for use as chambres d'hotes and it shows. They are...

The room and bathroom were spacious and spotlessly clean. The garden and pool were tranquil and lovely. We appreciated the use of a fridge in the sitting room area to store drinks and snacks as the village is a small rural one with only one place to eat/drink. Parking our hire car in the quiet street was never a problem....

What can I say! Friendly, comfortable, stylish, spotless and set in a beautiful part of France. Pascale and Tim were great hosts, knowledgeable about their area, perfectly bi-lingual and helpful, nothing was too much to ask! Thank you for a lovely stay and will definitely be coming back, when I'm allowed!!

We travelled as two couples and we found Pascale had not only spotless, beautifully furnished bedrooms, with a very comfortable bed and a modern bathroom with a fabulous hot and powerful shower, but it was her kind hospitality, addressing every query with wonderful recommendations that blew us away.

I've just returned from a 7-night stay at Le Chai Catalan - what a gorgeous place! I happily spent hours in the garden, but it is also brilliantly placed for visits to the beach, mountains, interesting towns/cities and great places to eat. Breakfasts were delicious, eaten on the new (mosaic) patio area, next to the lemon tree and its intoxicating...
