This refined chateau in Languedoc is a wine connoisseur’s paradise! Set within the tiny hilltop village of Lasserre-de-Prouille, the the winemaker Mon Martin is your next door neighbor. Your holiday chateau overlooks rolling fields full of grapevines and sunflowers, stretching out to the snow-capped Pyrenees. In your own garden you can pluck ripe figs from the vine while you dine beside the saltwater swimming pool - pure rural fantasy.When you arrive, you’ll find a welcome hamper so you’ll not be hungry after your travels! Take the time to explore your grand hall, where polished wood panels and original tiling lend an aristocratic air. Climb the stone and iron staircase to bedrooms and throw open the windows to let the country air caress the curtains.For groceries and restaurants, head to Montreal or Fanjeaux just 5 km down the road from your holiday chateau. You’re only 20 minutes from Carcassonne, a medieval village that hosts the closest airport (and golf courses, if you please). The appeal of the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region lies in the experimental nature of the wines - unconstrained by the strict adherence to rules (like in Bordeaux or Champagne), you'll find interesting blends that may surprise you. 

Discounts for smaller groups (fewer than 10) are available outside of high season.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • This hilltop chateau in Languedoc offers a breathless view of the countryside below.
  • A short drive (45 minutes) to both the sea and the ski slopes, any time of year spent here is a gorgeous one.
  • If you have a small group (less than 10), ask about out-of-season discounts.

What you should know…

  • Lasserre-de-Prouille has only a bakery - cafés and markets are farther afield.
  • The owners are able to help with requests, as they have many village connections (they once arranged clothes for a family whose luggage was lost!)

Property Features

Private Pool Child-Safe Pool Internet Pets Welcome Stag/Hen Allowed Cable TV DVD Heating

The accommodation is arranged over three floors reached by the most magnificent stone and iron staircase. The hall and landings are very grand, indeed rooms in their own right, with polished wood panelling and original tiles. The ground floor enjoys a spacious fully equipped kitchen/larder with 4 oven Aga and views over the courtyard as well as a salon in which to relax adjoined to the dining room that seats  15. The comfortable salon has settees,  satellite television (full TV coverage via Freesat), DVD player and I-pod docking station.

On the first floor there are three large bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en-suite with the Maitre’s bedroom. On the top floor there are 2 further bedrooms, a playroom and a shower room. Please note that every room has two full height windows with views. All the bedrooms have double beds and three of them have additional singles  (disguised as daybeds). There are also two further singles in the playroom, a couple of camp beds, 2 cots and a crib.
The front of the house opens onto a courtyard with ample parking, glorious views, and an ancient vine to sit under on hot evenings. Adjacent is the beautiful barn of winemaker and farmer Mon Martin.

To the rear is the fully enclosed and private garden with the 10x5m salt filtration pool (better on the skin and kids eyes), shady trees, recliners, BBQ and dining table. The large teak table has 16 chairs and is normally sited under our walnut tree, plus there are loungers around the pool. The garden is fully enclosed and catches the sun all day, but has shade under the walnut and fig yourselves they are delicious!

This is the centre of Cathar country, where history abounds. There are castles to visit and views that astonish! The Chateau is only a short trip to the beaches and delightful ports of the Mediterranean or the ski slopes and wonderful walks of the Pyrenees.

Le Chateau is in the midst of the 'golden triangle' of Fanjeaux, Limoux and Mirepoix that show the Aude in its best light. The views from Le Chateau are truly stunning with layers of vine covered hills framed by the backdrop of the snow capped Pyrenees - the area is often described as the Tuscany of France.

Through Limoux towards Quillan there is canoeing and river swimming. 

Carcassonne, the Unesco world heritage site, is nearby, as is the Canal du Midi. Wine buffs will savour local wines that are enjoying an increasing reputation. The Chateau has a local expert who will escort you to various domaines. Castelnaudary, a 10 minute drive, is the renowned home of casoulet. Golf is at Carcassonne, and horse-riding and fishing are within minutes of the chateau.

Carcassonne airport (20 mins) has budget flights from various UK centres, Toulouse (50 mins) is an international airport and Beziers (60 mins) now has Ryanair. Perpignan, Montpelier and Nimes airports are all within striking distance. The nearest mainline SNCF is Carcassonne.

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.
