Description

Saint-Félix-de-Tournegat Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

4 self-contained houses - can be reserved together or separately (2-40 people)

Full of character and wooden beams, the Maison d'Artistes is the "Jewel in the Crown" of the Domaine de Montagnac. Spacious and luxurious, the Grande Salle and Grande Cuisine are wonderful spaces that transform the house. The Grande Salle is luxuriously furnished, with chandeliers, large sofas and armchairs, Jotul wood burning stove, widescreen TV...and a stunning 4 metre oak dining table (perfect for up to 20 people). The Grande Cuisine is fully equipped with a 5-burner cooker, gas and electric ovens, microwave, dishwasher, and large fridge/freezer (with icemaker). The 4 bedrooms and 2 sofabeds are in the the first and second floor apartments (which are available together or separately). Renovated to a very high standard, each apartment has two bedrooms, one bathroom (1st floor: bath/shower; 2nd floor: shower), a fully-fitted kitchen, living room, sofa bed & satellite TV. The Maison d'Artistes is a magnificently spacious holiday home of 415 sq m (or 4500 sq ft) - much more space than you will find in most gites. A large terrace looks out over fields and woods - ideal for hot summer evenings. You’ll have unrestricted access to the shared swimming pool and grounds...and to our large snooker table.

The Maison Maitre has 8 bedrooms and 2 sofabeds, and has a large shaded south-facing terrace and a small north-facing terrace.

The Maison du Parc has 4 bedrooms and 1 sofabed and a private/enclosed north-facing terrace.

The Maison des Pyrenees Appartment 1 has 3 bedrooms and 1 sofabed. Its terrace looks south directly towards the Pyrenees.

The Maison des Pyrenees Appartment 2 has 1 bedroom and 1 sofabed. Its terrace also looks south directly towards the Pyrenees.

The 4 entirely self-contained houses at the Domaine de Montagnac can be rented together offering a total of 20 bedrooms and 9 sofabeds – enough for most extended families or holiday groups. If you would like to reserve the entire estate just let us know!

If your aim is to find absolute peace/calm (even isolation), you may be well advised not to stay at the Domaine de Montagnac during July or August. Understandably, in the peak holiday season we are likely to have people staying in one of the other houses/apartments. For most people, meeting new people/friends in a relaxing informal setting (and children meeting and playing with other children) adds to the fun and enjoyment of a family holiday in such a wonderful place!

BUSINESS SEMINARS:

The Domaine de Montagnac is an ideal location for relaxed and focused residential business seminars. All of the spaces described can be made available, plus a separate dedicated seminar room. Full catering can be arranged from a local caterer. Please email us for more details.

About Martin Holliss

Hallo! I'm Martin Holliss, one of the owners of the Domaine de Montagnac. Having fallen in love with the place, my wife, Liz, and I bought the Domaine in 2005 with some of our oldest and dearest friends. Our children have come to love it as well, to the point that our son was married at the domaine during 2016.

Martin Holliss purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Martin Holliss chose Ariege

It's just so lovely here! Rural, tranquil and with amazing views. If you want to holiday in a city then the Domaine de Montagnac is not for you. However, if you love the country, enjoy large characterful houses with wooden beams, and want to relax into a combination of tourism, walking and French rural life, then Montagnac is likely to appeal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed here for my birthday celebrations with family and friends.



It could not have been a better spot for it. It's got a fabulous kitchen to cook for 40 people. There's a great pool. The rooms are well equipped and furnished. There is a pool/billiards/snooker table, and a table tennis table. The caretaker Christina is very friendly and helpful. Also, there is plenty to see and lots of activities nearby.



I've thought about not writing this review so I can keep it a secret. But that's not fair to the owners. It was just perfect.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The house and setting are wonderful for a large group of people. If you have a keen chef in your party, as we did, then the kitchen is an absolute dream. The house is well equipped and has all the amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: These guests travelled from Spain and France, and reserved the whole of the Maison d'Artistes for a large family Christmas. The house is perfect for groups of family or good friends, which is exactly what we had in mind when we renovated the house. Fully equipped and high quality were our guiding principles. This sort of feedback shows we've got a lot right, and makes all our effort and investment worthwhile! :-)

Family relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a magnificent place to stay!

We all 9 fitted in most comfortably. We hardly used the private living rooms, eating together either in the main hall or out on the private patio. Long walks (including the 'Gypsy' or the Church in the rock) and short including the Enclosed Church, outings to the Underground River nr Foix and local markets (go early) made the time fly. Christina was a gem making sure that everything was perfect for us. So relaxing and the kitchen so great for gournet meals. Thanks so much.

The Domaine de Montagnac is a remarkable place. Situated in a quiet and beautiful (but not remote) part of the Ariege in southwest France, with rolling hills all around, it is an ideal base for a relaxing rural holiday. As well as the local village (St Felix de Tournegat) being classified as a National Monument, there are amazing panoramic views of the Pyrenees mountain range – close enough for skiing or high altitude walks. With tourism and cultural attractions all over the region, and civilization (and, so, shops!) just a 15 minute drive away, there are very few holiday locations that can compare. Delights such as Mirepoix and Limoux are on the doorstep, as are the Cathar castles including Foix and Montsegur. For those wanting the sea, the Mediterranean and the famous town of Collioure are just 2 hours away.

Ski: There are several ski resorts within easy driving distance. While not as grand (or expensive!) as the Alps, all local ski resorts in the Pyrenees have a good variety of skiing in lovely surroundings.

The nearest ski resort, les Monts D'Olmes, is a 45 minute drive away. The larger resort of Ax-les-Thermes (also has thermal baths & a casino, is 90 minutes drive away.
