It has a huge terrace facing south, ideal for a good meal on the barbecue or plancha with the family, also ideal to relax in front of the gardens (26 chairs, 12 chairs).

The Château is located in CASTELNAUDARY, the Mecca of French gastronomy, and in the heart of the Pays du Pastel, halfway between Toulouse and Carcassonne, two jewels of French heritage. You can walk along the Canal du Midi, and windsurf on the lake of Ganguise, or Saint Féréol.

We understand why our ancestors had chosen such a location to build this castle!


AN UNBEATABLE RATE, for this type of stay, in such a popular area ...


Lovers of the region and this extraordinary Château, we have the heart to share this passion with the greatest number. This explains all the efforts made to renovate this place steeped in history and make "The Castle of Saint-Jean-des-Plats" as comfortable and seductive as possible.

This also explains why we wanted to offer an extremely ATTRACTIVE price. In summer, July-August, the price is only 30 € / day per person (for 25 people with the house). In slower times, rates are lower. An unbeatable rate for this type of stay, much lower than many accommodations in the region, especially since linen is provided!

WHY such a tariff? Because we consider that the rental of a castle must be affordable for families. That's what initially led us to invest in these places for our own family. It is this wonderful experience that we want to share today.

BOOK your stay now. Call us live on 06 86 58 70 93 (we speak French, English, Spanish) to plan and organize your stay at the castle. Find us also on our site:

Une demeure de charme dont les propriétaires prennent soin d'entretenir et améliorer après chaque nouveau client, afin de satisfaire toujours plus les attentes de la clientèle. J'ai eu la chance de me marier dans ce lieu d'exception en août 2016. Il est difficile de rêver plus belle vue pour convier sa famille et ses amis pour une journée aussi unique qu'est un mariage. Mon seul regret c'est d'avoir dû quitter après quatre merveilleux jour ce lieu où on se sent vite chez soi ! J'y retournerai sans hésiter !

Une propriété idéale !

  • 5 of 5

Un cadre fabuleux dans une propriété parfaitement aménagée, nous a permis de nous marier dans des conditions idéales. Les récents aménagements du château et des dépendances permettent aux traiteurs de se préparer dans les meilleures conditions avec des équipements adaptés. Nos nombreux invités ont ainsi pu profiter d'une vue imprenable sur les Pyrénées pendant l'après-midi avant d'aller s'assoir pour le diner dans les dépendances entièrement refaites. Tout en remerciant nos hôtes pour cet accueil chaleureux nous recommandons vivement Saint Jean des Plats.

Merveilleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

Tout est réuni pour un séjour de rêve : un bâtiment avec beaucoup de charme et bien entretenu, un très grand terrain qui fait que même en étant nombreux l'espace ne manque pas, une terrasse côté cour avec une vue dominante sur les collines environnantes et au loin les Pyrénées, une terrasse côté jardin avec une grande table pour les moments de partage.... Un écrin idéal pour fabriquer des souvenirs

Séjour idilyque

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué le domaine pour notre mariage et avons été ravis.

Nos invités étaient subjugués par le lieu et la vue et leur a donné envie we revenir passer du temps dans ce lieu incroyable. Le château à un charme certain avec une cuisine totalement équipée. Il y a l'embarras du choix entre le jardin, la piscine, le trampoline et le bbq!
