The picture-perfect pink château in southern France that has been in the same devoted family for eighteen generations is featured this Fall by Cosmic Villas with great pleasure.
This is a fantastic location for exploring the Montagne Noire, the Canal du Midi, and the beautiful old city of Carcassonne.
It is located in six hectares of expansive parkland with ancient trees and is only a short walk from a fine dining establishment.
As you stay in the charming third-floor guest quarters of this 15th-century castle, take a trip back in time and immerse yourself in the French way of life.
The welcoming owners of the castle, who reside in their own château quarters, will be happy to share numerous family lore tales with you and even show you the unique ceremonial rooms downstairs with the castle's rare 19th-century panoramic wallpapers, the ideal backdrop for a special event or wedding.
Contact us right away to make a reservation or learn more.
Follow the winding staircase to the very top of the château where five charming suites with individual bathrooms and capacity for up to 14 people each are located.
Spend quality time with family or friends in the quaint living-dining area next to a tiny blue kitchen while taking in the historic ambiance and the breathtaking garden views all around you.
The parkland is just magnificent and vast, not only for its swimming pool and terraces but also for its century-old trees, including a 500-year-old oak that has been designated as a "remarkable tree" by the government.
Take a stroll through the six hectares of parkland, locate the small children's play area, or sit on a seat by the river.
The grounds also border a posh hotel with a spa, an indoor heated pool, and a fine dining restaurant; reservations are required for special meals and spa services.
To properly experience the French "art de vivre," the château owners can also organize 19th-century themed costumed activities around the grounds and ceremonial chambers, as well as cooking classes and wine tastings.
Hire a cook to prepare mouthwatering family dinners and schedule excursions throughout this stunning area.
Don't miss the lively Saturday morning in the town's medieval center and market hall in Revel, which is only 7 km away by car. You might then go swimming in Bassin de Saint-Ferréol in the summer; it's a beautiful location for woodland hikes, seasonal watersports, and even tree-top adventures.
Drive into the heart of the Montagne Noire with its streams, forests, castles, and charming villages.
Cycle or sail down the Canal du Midi, stopping off in Castelnaudary to enjoy the local dish of cassoulet.
Visit the Cathar castles dotting the countryside, take in the charming market in Mirepoix, and admire the stunning riverfront homes in Castres.
