CHATEAU DE BELLECARE

Belcaire Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful chateau to rent with private pool near the Pyrennees

Dating back to the 16th century, the charming Chateau de Bellecare is situated in the foothills of the idyllic Pyrenees on the edge of a medieval village and a stone’s throw from local amenities. You can pick up fresh croissants and baguettes from the nearby boulangerie, excellent cuts of meat from the boucherie for a barbeque on the south-facing patio, which you can accompany with a local Limoux wine sourced from the alimentation, just a few steps across the road. The Chateau offers breathtaking views of the high mountains, excellent for walking in. Nearby are ancient Cathar castles, picturesque market towns such as Mirepoix and fascinating towns such as Limoux and Rennes-le-Château. The medieval citadel town of Carcasonne is about an hour away with Perpignan and the coast within close proximity.

Interior and Grounds:

The magnificent medieval entrance leads into the spacious hall with access to the living and dining rooms on either side. The spacious living room runs the full length of the building and is dominated by the traditional French fireplace, installed with a wood-burning stove, which can be used all year round. The room is equipped with a sound system with CD and ipod connection. At the opposite end is a self-contained seating area with satellite TV, DVD player and a considerable selection of DVD titles. There is access to the south-facing patio through the French windows where you can spend the evening, overlooking the peaceful village and watching the sun set. The dining room can seat up to 16 people and leads in to the kitchen with adjoining utility room. Aside the dining room, in the circular turret is a small office. Here there is broadband internet and computer access for guests. The kitchen is equipped with a large gas stove, sink, storage space and dishwasher.

The Chateau has 8 large, attractively decorated and similarly-sized bedrooms leading off a central corridor over two floors. The bedrooms enjoy exquisite views of the surrounding countryside, the courtyard of the property and the pretty village beyond. The rooms offer guests peaceful and private spaces to rest in and enjoy the magic of this majestic building. After a tiring day, guests can enjoy the luxurious and generously sized rooms with huge beds and ample storage offering perfect rest and relaxation away from home. On each floor one twin room, each with two single beds caters for individuals or children who want their own space in beautifully furnished surroundings. Six of the bedrooms have superb en suite bathroom facilities set within the circular towers of the Chateau. The remaining two rooms are ideal for children or close family members with connecting doors through to adjacent bedrooms.

The sizeable garden has two patio areas for outdoor entertainment and perfect for al fresco dining. The pool is 10m long and 5m wide with a retractable roof and there is a separate self-contained area which is perfect for a game of badminton, boules or table tennis. The chateau can comfortably accommodate parking for several vehicles.

About Oliver's Travels - France

What an incredible time we had at the chateau

  • 5 of 5
I have been meaning to let you know for the past couple of weeks what an incredible time we had at the chateau. The place was SO impressive - really spacious and very tastefully presented... We all had a great time - it was my mums 70th and my parents have been going on about it ever since. Finally I cant believe what good value it was - incredible. Well done, you run an excellent business.

Nearest Airport
80 Kilometres
Carcassonne

The nearest airport to the chateau is Carcassonne 80km away. The chateau is situated just a short walk to the local village where you can pick up all the essentials.

At the nearby castle at Puivert you can browse the fascinating museum and Montaillou has an intriguing story attached to it where the whole of the village fell under suspicion of the inquisition! Nearby Perypertuse, Queribus, Puilaurens and Arques are also easily found and well-worth the short trip. Those with a little more time might want to visit to the medieval citadel at Carcassonne, the ancient town of Perpignan, or discover the delightful Collioure and Banuyls-sur-Mer on the coast towards the Spanish border.

Given the recent mania surrounding the ����������Da Vinci Code??, Rennes-le-Château has been attracting increasing international attention. With its secrets of Cathar gold hidden in the Templar castle which once stood overlooking the Aude river, not only is the area bursting with historical legends, but there are tremendous and spellbinding views of the surrounding area.

For something different, you can try the bustling local markets. Every Monday the ancient and picturesque town of Mirepoix hosts a traditional market, where you can find delicious locally-produced cheeses, wines, meat, fruit and vegetables as well as a myriad of local craft stalls. Then why not stop off for a bite to eat and a glass of wine or a coffee in one of the surrounding cafes or restaurants?

Virtually on the doorstep of the Chateau are paths leading into the mountains, maps of which are provided. On these walks you can experience the beauty of the natural surroundings and wildlife. Dramatic scenery can be found along the way where gorges split the craggy landscape, home to eagles and vultures.

Adventure sports such as white water rafting and canoeing are available nearby and in winter, the nearest ski fields are a 45 minutes drive away in Ax Les Thermes. Every year in mid-July the Tour De France passes by a mere 20 minutes away, which is an enjoyable and fun day out to watch the cyclists complete one of the more mountainous stages.
