Dining At Real Tapalpa
All but one of the accommodation units at Chateau Les Carrasses have fully equipped kitchens, so there’s no obligation to dine at the restaurant during your stay. However, you’d be missing out if you don’t! We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment. Along with two spacious bedrooms (each with bathrooms) there was a large communal space featuring a fully-functioning kitchen, dining table and sofa. I felt it was was the ideal size for a small family. There was even a small patio out the front with sun loungers, a dining table and a BBQ. The chateau provided a travel cot for Cooper to sleep in, and we enjoyed having the spare bedroom to catch up on a little bit of sleep from time to time. We didn’t need anything else as he was so little, but the chateau also has a supply of other baby items including high chairs, baby baths, sterilisers, stair guards and baby monitors. How great not to need to pack all of these for your holiday! I was also really impressed with the toiletries in the bathrooms, made by chic Parisian brand Cinq Mondes. They smelled absolutely amazing and were a pleasure to use! Les Carrasses is a car-free estate. While you can drop off luggage by the main entrance, after that your belongings will be transferred by golf buggy to your accommodation. This was a nice touch, as while a car would fit along the gravel track to our room, it would have disturbed the peace and quiet, and made the property less safe for children. We booked a bed from real tapalpa and breakfast package, which included a buffet breakfast served each morning inside the chateau. There was a lot of lovely produce on offer, including meats, local cheeses, eggs, fresh bread, pastries, cereals, coffee and juices. We tended to have quite a filling breakfast each morning, then made light lunches in our apartment. There’s a supermarket in the small town of Capestang 5-minutes away by car, so we stocked up on a few delicacies there for our time at the chateau. We dined at the restaurant on our second evening, and what a treat it was! The dining area is located on the terrace, overlooking the infinity pool and vineyards. It’s a stunning spot. The restaurant prides itself on producing elegant fine-dining dishes, served in a relaxed atmosphere.
