At the heart of the ancient fortified village of Saint Julia stands the castle of Hélèen and Sotho. They welcome you into their artistic universe and offer three romantic and comfortable rooms with views of the Pyrenees.

Sotho & Helene are very accommodating hosts. The location was very scenic. The house was very artistic & bohemian/gothic. Beware that Saint Julia has no places to eat. It's very tiny. Therefore we needed to eat at the house. Helene very kindly loaned us their fridge, kitchen & washing machine but it did feel a bit like we were intruding on their private space. The one thing that was disappointing was that we were expecting 3 bathrooms as per the listing but there were only 2 bathrooms and 1 separate toilet to share for six of us. The beds, pillows & linen were not that comfortable. The house is amazing, full of hand made instruments, beautiful furniture & quirky decorations. The owners are musicians, artists & film makers. The place is very well known amongst locals. An unique stay which will remember.
The Chateau H. was really amazing and interesting place to stay. Hosts were very welcoming and Sotho introduced the castle to us. The castle is totally special with fantastic interior decoration and surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay and can only recommend! We will definitely come here again if visiting the area in the future.
What an amazing place to stay, I am almost lost for words as to how wonderful it was. Sotho our host was one of the most interesting and hospitable people I have ever met. The picture of the room we stayed in doesn’t really do justice to how atmospheric the whole place is. I would 100% recommend this as a place to stay. A massive Thank you !
Lugar muy recomendable si lo que se quiere es desconectar. El pueblo es muy tranquilo y el Chateau H un sitio sorprendente. Merece la pena acudir a alguno de los eventos artísticos que se organizan en él. Además, sus dueños, Helene y Sotho, son encantadores. A nuestros dos hijos adolescentes también les gustó mucho.
