The
Experience

There’s a thousand years of history steeped in the tower and walls of this château but much has been altered and rebuilt since: a spectacular 17th-century stone staircase, 18th-century frescoes, Art Deco wallpaper and tiles. When Dominica and Philippe arrived in 2010 they installed a modern heating system with lashings of hot water so now you get deep comfort in an ancient castle. View-filled bedrooms (one looks over the Corbières) are simply but well furnished with original furniture, new mattresses, modern bathrooms. Your generous hosts feed you well: continental breakfast on the terrace, join them for a barbecue supper.

Reviews

A very warm welcome awaits you at this amazing place. The chateau gradually reveals itself as you arrive in a pretty courtyard filled with plants, to your rooms which are extremely comfortably appointed, with super bathrooms (great showers!), and stunning views. The garden is wonderful. You feel as if you are suspended in the sky, surrounded by plants, with marvellous views and lots of thoughtfully placed seating areas. Sharing a delicious dinner out here with Dominica and Philippe was magical; they are a delightful couple and went to great lengths to make us welcome. We will return. Fabulous!

Staying with Dominica and Philippe in their amazing chateau was a truly wonderful experience. They changed their own plans to allow us to arrive on New Year's Eve and we spent an unexpected and amazingly fun evening in their company, eating Dominica's delicious food. They are the warmest and most welcoming of hosts and we felt lucky to have the chance to stay in their incredible home. This is not a place to stay if you don't want to be part of the Chateau family while you're there. We were delighted to be!

  • Day visits galore await you: the languid Canal du Midi, the coastal lagoons at Bages and Peyriac-sur-Mer, Leucate with its oysters, idyllic river swimming holes, some more secret than others; numerous farmers markets...
  • the Cathar stronghold of Minerve and the Cathar castles (Quéribus, Peyrepertuse), not forgetting Europe’s largest walled mediaeval city at Carcassonne… and everywhere you drive, tempting wine-tasting cellars, filled with Languedoc’s throng of AOCs.
