So wonderful I had to write this is English

We recently rented the Chateau de ma Mere for our marriage, and were speechless upon arrival. It was so much more than we had expected - the perfect combination of classic old-world architecture and furnishings, and modern finishing touches. My and my new husband's families shared the chateau, and there was more than enough privacy for all. The pool is absolutely beautiful and the grounds spectacularly scenic. The caretakers were always available and showed up within minutes for every last issue - one light fixture wasn't working and an electrician arrived that afternoon to tend to the problem. We weren't sure what we would end up with when planning our wedding online... to say we weren't disappointed is a vast understatement. We were absolutely thrilled and would return in a heartbeat.

Superbes vacances!

  • 5 of 5

Deux semaines dans une endroit idyllique!

Le manoir est une bâtisse rénovée avec beaucoup de goût, très confortable et équipé avec tout ce dont une grande famille avec bébés, enfants et adultes a besoin pour passer des vacances idéales.

La cuisine est très bien équipée, spacieuse et fonctionnelle, les chambres sont charmantes, propres et grandes. Les espaces communs intérieurs et extérieurs nombreux, afin que chacun puisse trouver un coin tranquille selon les envies.

L'endroit est calme et à proximité de la rigole du canal de midi et offre la possibilité de faire des ballades à vélo aux grands et petits.

Les alentours sont également à mentionner, la proximité de Carcassonne, Revel avec son superbe marché et un peu plus loin Toulouse.

On trouve d'ailleurs sur place des plans et des dizaines de dépliants sur les activités, curiosités et visites à ne pas rater dans les environs.

Nous avons eu un coup de coeur pour la façade au lever du soleil avec une lumière magique qui sublime les petits détails des corniches et invite à la détente. Puis le superbe ciel étoilée la nuit qui nous a offert quelques étoiles filantes au grand bonheur des enfants.

Un grand merci à la propriétaire et aux gérants qui ont été aux petits soins. Nous sommes partis les coeurs remplis de beaux souvenirs!

Perfect location for our friends week!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a week's holiday with friends and had a lovely stay. The house is very complete, especially the fact that all rooms have their own bathrooms.

The pool is perfect and safely gated in so that children cannot accidentally wander in.

We made good use of all the outside spaces and barbeques.

The location is great, rural, but in easy reach of little towns and supermarkets, with a great bakery close by.

We visited the city of Carcassonne which is only a short drive.

The caretakers were very friendly and helpful, especially with a dishwasher that broke down during our stay.

I can recommend this location for a group!

Hemos estado un grupo de amigos de Sevilla, en esta maravillosa casa,de la que solo tenemos cosas buenas que decir. Con una excelente equipaciòn,de las mejores en las que hemos estado,un entorno espectacular y sobre todo con una atención por parte de los propietarios que merece un capitulo aparte.Nuestro agradecimiento a Jacqueline y su marido y de manera especial a Claudine y Ron,gente maravillosa ,con la que hemos compartido momentos muy especiales que guardaremos siempre en la memoria.

La limpieza, el silencio,los grandes espacios,esa cocina enorme tan bien equipada,los ratos en la piscina, la barbacoa,los tilos a mediodia, esos juegos de petanca.... Una región perfecta para descubrir la historia del pais cátaro y relajarse entre sus campos de trigo.Muy ,muy recomendable.

Nous avons passé entre amis un séjour formidable.

La maison est très confortable, spacieuse, aménagée avec goût.

Nous avons pleinement profiter de sa grande cuisine conviviale, du jardin qui offre des terrains de jeux formidables et de la piscine, très bel havre de paix et suffisamment grande pour accueillir les sauts et jeux des enfants/ados.

Nous avons découvert la région, et fait de nombreuses visites, promenades à pieds et à vélo et nous avons pu jouer régulièrement au tennis à 7km.

L'accueil est chaleureux, nous recommandons vivement cette location.
