South of Toulouse, on the edge of the Ariege, just south of the town of Lezat, in the parish of St Ybars, you will find Chateau Ariege.

Built around the middle of the 19th century for the Baronne de Nomazy, the Château is situated away from the main road south to the Pyrenean mountains, surrounded by its own woods and parkland - in complete privacy.

The region may once have been split by religious conflict, but today it’s a wonderfully bucolic area which stretches away from the cosmopolitan sophistication of Toulouse for 70 miles down to the rising peaks of the Pyrenees, which are topped with ice and snow even in the late spring.

The faraway mountain range, behind which Andorra nestles, serves as a constant point of orientation to the south, dipping in and out of view as you wind your way around the rising and falling lanes.

The most enchanting of the three settlements, though, is Mirepoix, a bastide, or planned, town where the solidly elegant cathedral of St Maurice - its nave the second widest in Europe - gazes down on the medieval square bordered by half-timbered houses fronted by a delightful wooden arcade.

From here it is only a short drive south east to the stunning walled city of Carcassonne - but in the Ariege one feels far from the tourist masses that congregate there.

Chateau Ariege is less than 1 hour from Toulouse airport, 1 1/2 hours from Carcassonne and 2 hours from Bordeaux.

Other international airports in the region are Bergerac, Limoges, Perpignan, Rodez and Pau.

By road the Chateau is an 8-9 hours drive from Calais and a day by rail from London St Pancras.

Region

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.

    Posted by Ailsa on 31/08/2018

    The owners were very helpful and welcoming. The Chateau was everything we had wanted, and set in beautiful grounds. The tennis court and swimming pool were great and kept adults and children entertained. The grounds were great for treasure hunts and cricket matches. We throughly enjoyed our week. Would highly recommend.
