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.

"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.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
Incredible Chateau in an amazing location! We came here on a work team retreat (10 of us) and i couldn't recommend it highly enough. Rebecca was brilliant we felt right at home.

Top tip - Get a local chef to come in a whip you up something delicious in the kitchen.

UN LIEU MAGIQUE

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux à la Commanderie en juillet dernier. Nous avions réservé le château ainsi que le cottage pour 10 jours, afin d'y célébrer notre mariage et de passer des moments de vacances en famille et entre amis. La Commanderie s'est révélée l'endroit parfait et tout s'est idéalement déroulé. De l'accueil de Rebecca, qui nous a immédiatement plongés dans l'histoire et la beauté des lieu à l'apprentissage rapide de la vie de châtelain, nous avons pu profiter de ce site privilégié où nous nous sommes très vite sentis chez nous. Nos invités ont également été enchantés, la qualité des prestations, des aménagements intérieurs et extérieurs et le décor magnifique ayant contribué à un séjour inoubliable. Nous avons également profité de l'excellent qualité des produits locaux et de la grande gentillesse des producteurs et des prestataires recommandés par Rebecca.
Quant au week-end de mariage, il nous laissera ainsi qu'à nos invités des souvenirs impérissables, et la Commanderie y a joué un rôle particulier.
Pour tous ceux qui recherchent un château spacieux, confortable et magnifiquement rénové tout en étant d'une authenticité et d'un charme unique, nous ne pouvons que recommander le choix de la Commanderie. Notre seul regret ? Ne pas avoir pu rester plus longtemps, mais nous reviendrons certainement, dans l'idée de profiter davantage de la région, magnifique également, et de ces nombreuses attractions historiques et naturelles.

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.
