Overview of Maison Cougoreux

What Oliver loves…

  • You’ll be greeted with a three-course dinner at this cottage in Languedoc! You may be tempted to join the table d'hôte every night of the week.
  • Gardeners, take a break! You’re welcome to harvest the château’s fruit and vegetables.
  • Check out the local vide greniers (garage sales) for unique souvenirs!

What you should know…

  • The property can sleep 4 adults and 2 children in the family-style bedrooms.
  • The swimming pool is shared with the main château.

Culinary delights await at this pretty cottage in Languedoc, set within the grounds of a gorgeous château. You’ll stay in Bâtiment Ouest (the Western Building), here guests have access to orchards, gardens, and the shared swimming pool. Stroll through the hedge maze, pick fruit from the tree, then return to your rustic whitewashed country home. If the night is chilly, light a fire in the wood-burning fireplace - this is cottage holiday perfection.The on-site concierge can help arrange anything from spa sessions to catering to a wine tour. Foodies will discover many delights here, starting with the complimentary three-course meal on your first night. On Saturday, head to Revel Market where you can savour the local bounty. And of course, there’s no shorter farm-to-table distance than that travelled by the vegetables in the château garden!The countryside near this holiday cottage is bursting with outdoor activities (you could easily cycle part of the Tour de France route.) The nearest town is Sorèze (15 minute drive), a precious medieval town where you'll find several shops and restaurants in addition to the Benedictine abbey. Wine touring is just an hour away in the Languedoc-Roussillon region - a treat for any oenophile.

Interior & Grounds

The property can sleep a maximum of 6 guests. On the ground floor you have a large modern kitchen, dining room, comfortable salon and bathroom. On the first floor you have 2 large bedrooms and a half bathroom. The first comes with queen size bed and a bed for a young child. The second comes with a king size bed that can be converted to twin beds and one bed for a young child. The two sofas in the sitting room can become double beds for occasional guests. Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the property.

Eat on the private terrace, treat yourself to a spa, a massage or even your personal yoga session. Or you can play boules, stroll through the woods, lose and find yourself again in the maze, pick fruit in the orchard or vegetables and flowers in the vegetable garden. Relax around the 20 metre heated pool.The pool has a very long shallow end, with a sectioned off area with benches all around which is perfect for young children. The deepest end is 2 M 20 for those who want to dive. However, parental supervision is always essential!, sit back and enjoy the view! Please note the pool is shared with the château - we always manage to respect each other's privacy.

Map, Location & Local Information

Soreze is 15 minutes away, Albi and Toulouse are 50 minutes away, and Carcassonne is 1 hour away, so there is a great diversity of things to see and discover.

Indulge your senses at the local markets (our closest is the renowned Revel Market). A range of activities are available, including tennis, paragliding at Dourgne, sailing on the famous Lac St Féréol, trips on Pierre Paul Riquet’s Canal de Midi and cycling on the route used by the “tour de France”.

Cathar history surrounds the chateau - the main sites can be explored within a short drive from the property. On the gastronomic side, specialty cooking workshops for groups, or private lessons can be organized.

During your stay you should check out the numerous vide greniers, the various music festivals and the fêtes de villages. You can also enjoy a spa, a massage, or your own personal yoga instruction.

The Region

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of those areas of France where you can feel like you’re totally cut off from the rest of the country. Commercial tourism has been very slow to capitalise on the region, meaning you can still enjoy a slice of authentic French rural life at its finest. A mixture of landscapes also makes it a great place to visit, with a good stretch of coastline offering a totally different experience to more bucolic interiors. Whatever you’re looking for, our range of villas and chateaux in Languedoc means you can get exactly the kind of holiday you want with accommodation that’s perfectly tailored to you, your friends and your family.

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.
