Overview

Wedding Venue

A truly authentic family Château, with views of the great La Cité of Carcassonne, you will find yourself just 15 minutes from all the tourist sights and 5 minutes from the busy Canal du Midi. This 16th Century Château sleeps 12 and comes complete with original fine furnishings and fixtures.

Everything about this Château has remained faithfully original, having been in the same family for 500 years. Heirlooms line the walls and mantelpieces, and each room is authentically decorated.

Feel the warm Mediterranean breeze on your face when you dine al fresco on the grand terrace “balcony of La Cite”. This terrace can seat up to 120 people and boasts a panoramic view of the medieval La Cité in Carcassonne. On cooler evenings dine alongside the great fireplace transported from the ancient Château (dated approximately 1200AD) and let the fragrant floral scents lull you to sleep in the charming bedrooms.

Nestled in a picturesque, historical village, discover what it feels like to live in a historic family home of over 500 years, discreet and away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The historical village is perched on a hill and surrounds one of the actual “look outs” of the ancient Cite in Carcassonne. Just 5km away, and with a tunnel dug deep underground, this small, historic village is forever linked to the fate of La Cite, Carcassonne.

Discreet and “out-of-the-way”, the quiet village of the Chateau is only 5 minutes from the bustle of Trebes, with its delicious patisseries, bars and restaurants. Situated on the famous Canal du Midi, Trebes (featured in Rick Stein’s wonderful series), has become a popular stopover for the thousands of Canal visitors that flock to the area each year.

Many vineyards are in the area and wine tours, revealing some of the more “boutique” wines not well known outside the region, are available for groups of up to 7 at a time.

There are also plenty of activities and other places of interest to keep one entertained such as:
- Carcassonne Plage (Lac de Cavayere) – 10 mins – a very clean pebbled beach and another creamy white sand beach with swimming lake.
- Golf – Carcassonne has an international standard 18 hole golf course.
- Walking – From the front door of the Chateau or along the Canal du Midi.
- Tennis – Local courts free of charge – 5 mins.
- Skiing – 1 hrs drive to the slopes of the Pyrenees.
- Cycling – Wonderfully quiet roads, a cyclists paradise. Cycle hire available from Trebes (3 mins).
- Horse-riding – local stables offer riding for all abilities.
- Canoeing & Kayaking – White water rafting in a nearby village.

The Chateau can be easily reached by taxi from both the train station and Salvaza airport for around €30 for a family of four. We can also arrange collection for larger groups of 7 people, or less. Please call Oliver's VIP Concierge for details.

Carcassonne and its myriad of bars, restaurants, sights and sounds is only 15 minutes by car.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
