Maison Cougoreux is a rustic cottage in the grounds of a rather unique chateau, in the Midi-Pyrenees, right on the border with the Languedoc.
Here, life is relaxed and revolves around the organic farming for which the owners and their visitors left behind the city and all its stresses.
Guests at Maison Cougoreux will be staying in the west wing in a simple and rustic cottage with access to the gardens, fruit orchards and the shared swimming pool. Take a labyrinthine walk following hedges on contour lines, then return to your retreat and leave modern life and city standards behind you...
Ask the on-site concierge to arrange anything a spa session, catering or a wine tour. On Saturday, head to Revel Market where you can savour the local bounty, or to Puylaurens on Wednesday. And of course, there's no shorter farm-to-table distance than that travelled by the vegetables from the organic market garden! The countryside near this holiday cottage is bursting with outdoor activities (you could easily cycle part of the Tour de France route).
The nearest town is Soreze (15 minute drive), a precious medieval town where you'll find several shops and restaurants in addition to the Benedictine abbey. The Canal de Midi and feeder lakes are nearby and we're surrounded by excellent wine producing areas - a treat for any oenophile.
The property can sleep a maximum of 6 guests.
On the ground floor there is a large dining kitchen with a fireplace, a large dining/sitting room, and an exceptional bathroom.
The first floor has 2 large bedrooms and a half bathroom. The first comes with queen size bed and a bed for a young child. The second comes with a king size bed that can be converted to twin beds and one bed for a young child - the rooms can be made up in several configurations. The two sofas in the sitting room can become double beds for occasional guests. Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the property.
Eat on the private terrace, arrange to treat yourself to a spa, a massage or even your personal yoga session. Or you can play boules, stroll through the woods, lose and find yourself again in the labyrinthine walk, enjoy fruit, vegetables and herbs from the organic market gardens and even partake in the organic pork and charcuterie we produce on site. Relax around the 20 metre heated pool in a natural setting. The pool has a very long shallow end, with a sectioned off area with benches all around which is perfect for young children. The deepest end is 2 M 20 for those who want to dive. However, parental supervision is always essential!, sit back and enjoy the view!
Please note the pool is shared with the chateau - we always manage to respect each other's privacy.
Soreze and Revel are 15 minutes away, Albi and Toulouse are 50 minutes away, and Carcassonne is 1 hour away, so there is a great diversity of things to see and discover.
Indulge your senses at the local markets (our closest is the renowned Revel Market). A range of activities are available around us, paragliding at Dourgne, sailing on the famous Lac St Fereol, trips on Pierre Paul Riquet's Canal de Midi and cycling on the route used by the “tour de France”.
Cathar history surrounds the chateau - the main sites can be explored within a short drive from the property. On the gastronomic side, specialty cooking workshops for groups, or private lessons can be organized.
During your stay you should check out the numerous vide greniers, the various music festivals and the fetes de villages. You can also enjoy a spa, a massage, or your own personal yoga instruction.
The house is located in the Midi-Pyrenees very close to Languedoc, a further beautiful region for you to explore!
