Looking out at Mount Canigou, which is cloaked in snow year-round and set in an unspoilt valley in French Catalonia, the Château de Riell is a haven of elegance amongst the parasol pines and oleander trees.
Landscapes are breathtaking, and atmosphere beats on a mediterranean tempo.
Château de Riell ****
Seated atop the Molitg’ estate, the Château nestles into a century-old cedar grove. Little stone-paths connect all the buildings of the domain.
Located into the main patio, on the castle’s foothills, the restaurant boasts two beautiful dining areas. During spring and autumn, a large dining room welcomes our guests around an open-hearth fireplace. During summer – which lasts from June to October in Riell – a large terrace under the canopy offers unforgettable “al fresco” dinners.
For festive private parties, the Dungeon is a magic place with its stone vaults, restored in a gothic setting.
Molitg Thermal Spa
Down the hill, on the same level of the Grand Hotel and a 5-minute walk from the château, our beautiful Roman Baths offer a large selection of treatments and wellness packages. After a relaxation session, you may enjoy a drink on the Grand Hotel terrace.
Grand Hôtel ***
This cosy XIXth century dwelling is the “little sister” of Château de Riell. You will enjoy there a luminous gallery-lounge, water gardens and a singular bar just out of the 1950’s. A must for vintage lovers !

Tucked into the historical dining room of the Grand Hotel, Café Casals offers a Catalonia terroir cuisine. In the summer, its huge glass walls open up on a shady terrace, under the old plane trees.
