Vie de château

  • 5 of 5

Excellentes prestations et conseils avertis donnés par la propriétaire. Nous avons apprécié sa préoccupation permanente de satisfaire ses hôtes et sa longue liste de fournisseurs et activités alentours. Accueil chaleureux. Rébecca Gregory nous a confié les clés de sa demeure sans appréhension, même si un groupe d'amis de 22 personnes avec des enfants entre 5 et 17 ans peut inquiéter au premier abord. Très riche région autant au niveau historique que touristique, mais il est également possible de séjourner à la Commanderie uniquement pour profiter du site.Nous gardons donc cette bonne adresse que nous recommandons pour un dépaysement total et une autre vie!

What a fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Commanderie to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was like a fairytale, surrounded by history and luxury. The park with its swimming pool and the sculptures is a fabulous setting for relaxation. Rebecca was a perfect host with plenty of local knowledge and advice for days out. We are looking forward for our next big occasion to be able to return!

A Picture Perfect Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a more idyllic venue for our wedding. The chateau itself is beautifully decorated, and Rebecca gave us great recommendations for local vendors.

In the week leading up to the wedding, we spent a lot of time by the pool and playing Boules on the terrace. The evenings were a little bit cooler, so it gave us the perfect opportunity to have our dinners by the fire.

There is also a lot to do in the area- from the prehistoric cave paintings to biking and hiking in the Pyrenees. We even came across a band competition in Mirepoix, where they were playing everything from White Stripes to songs from Pulp Fiction.

We have stayed in a number of vacation rentals in the South of France, but this one was by far our favorite. There has already been discussion about returning to celebrate our anniversary.

Des vacances uniques

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique week end de mariage au Chateau la Commanderie. Nous aurions bien aimé y rester plus longtemps! Le chateau est magnifique et très pratique (il y a vraiment tout ce qu'il faut pour y sejourner en famille ou entre ami). Il se situe dans une très belle région. Le jardin est aussi très très très beau.

It's wonderful. It's marvelous.

"Be careful, you may get what you wish for."

Life is full of cruel and unjustified surprises. Anyone who's lived will tell you that. Except in this case. I recently wrote a book that was translated into French. Great reviews. (If I do say so myself) I don't bring this up to toot my own horn. My publisher, as a result, decided to host a week- long celebration for me and potential book sellers. They chose Chateau la Commanderie and it was MORE than I could have wished of. The chateau is right out of novels far greater than mine, (replete with 13th century staircases and hidden rooms) Anything we needed was supplied in a moment's notice. The grounds are lush and beautiful. I was there to celebrate my book but wound up celebrating my surroundings. You'd have to be crazy not to adore this place. I know I'm gushing and going on and on, but it was truly a magical experience. The owner, Rebecca Gregory, was a delight as well. In short, I'd sit down and write another book just to go back to the chateau. And believe me, that's saying a lot.

A country blessed with history, natural beauty and gastronomy !

La Commanderie is in th Heart of the Cathar country in the Aude,

ideally located between the Pyrenees and Mediterranean sea.

It is a paradise for lovers of hiking, horse-riding, fishing, hunting,

alpine and cross-country-skying.

History lovers will find this wild region similar to Tuscany,

with landscapes littered with Romanesque churches.

Close to the medieval fortified town of Mirepoix and

to Castelnaudary, with its world famous cassoulet, you can also

discover the Cathar castles, including Montsegur.

Just 40 minutes from La Commanderie are the medieval

City of Carcassonne (a world heritage site), the chateau of Foix

an the 'pink city' of Toulouse, with many cultural and

touristic attractions. Great for kids : the Forge of Pyrenes,

the Prehistoric Park, Space city and

many other fun and sporty activities.

And don't forget to sample the local delights

from the market of Mirepoix or Castelnaudary.
