Fantastic gathering for friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We managed to get together, a group of friends since childhood with our children, to spend a full week vacation during the summer. La Commanderie has been an absolutely amazing place for us, adults and children. Rebecca, the owner, was attentive to everything: helped us find an splendid cook, cleaning ladies, driver, sent us all sorts of tourist, cultural and activities information, gathered wonderful wine for us... It all contributed to make this week even more extraordinary. We are all so grateful for this unforgettable week, and hope we can get together again next year and make it a tradition.

Avec la famille et les amis du monde entier, La Commanderie a fourni un cadre magnifique pour notre mariage de fille. Les invités n'auraient pas souhaité un endroit plus heureux et agréable, près de Mirepoix où beaucoup d'entre eux sont restés. L'ajout d'un sens de l'histoire et de la tradition était quelque chose d'unique, surtout pour notre famille et nos amis d'Australie. Les invités écossais du marié ont également été impressionnés par le cadre magnifique. La fête des mariés a apprécié l'atmosphère royale tout en restant dans le grand château tandis que maman, papa et famille ont apprécié la paix à une courte distance dans le «chalet». Merci à Rebecca de conserver quelque chose qui est important pour la tradition et l'histoire.

Cadre merveilleux

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons découvert le Cottage du Château de la Commanderie lors d'un séjour familial avec des petits enfants.

Nous avons tout particulièrement apprécié la beauté sereine du parc, le côté chaleureux et confortable du cottage.

Tout à la fois en pleine campagne mais pas trop isolé.

Nous avons été très gentiment accueillis

Séjour très agréable dans un cadre reposant.

  • 4 of 5

Maison agréable à vivre pour une famille mêlant plusieurs générations. Parc reposant à l'ombre des grands arbres, avec quelques fauteuils de jardin en plus ce serait idéal.

Owner's Response: Merci pour cet aimable commentaire. Par contre, je ne comprends pas pourquoi vous ne m’avez pas demandé d’autres fauteuils de jardin alors que je suis venue à plusieurs reprises voir si vous aviez besoin de quelque chose...

Beautifully appointed cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage with all the comforts of home and a delightful owner who couldn't be more helpful. We have enjoyed 5 fantastic weeks discovering this area of France. We have enjoyed the local produce and been able to visit a wide range of towns and villages. Thank you Rebecca for your advice about what to do in the area, which restaurants to visit and providing a comfortable cottage for us to live in for 5 weeks.
