Close to three of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, stay in style at this impressive French château set amongst glorious parkland and castle ruins in the captivating region of Gers.

This late 16th-century château has been gracefully restored by its current owners who rescued this beautiful abode following its abandonment for many years. Its transformation has been remarkable – step through the sun-dappled courtyard into the light-filled hallway with stone flag flooring and a Venetian chandelier and you will be immediately amazed. The living spaces are elegant yet welcoming whilst the kitchen-diner is the social hub of the house with a perfect blend of classic and contemporary furnishings.   

Upstairs, the four bedrooms are so pretty with delicately designed décor and the loveliest of bathrooms, two with romantic rolltop baths and the master bedroom’s bathroom with its huge tub and vintage-style sinks.  

Wherever you are in this house, there is a sense of light and beauty with wonderful pieces of artwork, sculptures and good-looking furnishings. French windows from the living room open up to the grand balcony terrace with picturesque views as you relax with a glass of local wine or follow the grand steps down to the château’s swimming pool. In the upper landscaped garden, admire the castle ruins in this incredible setting.

The château can be rented by itself or for larger groups, follow the driveway and reach two gorgeous cottages. Decorated and furnished lovingly and with impeccable taste, there’s a 4-bedroom and 3-bedroom cottage, each with their own living and dining spaces, lovely bedrooms and al-fresco terraces. Guests can choose to rent an additional cottage alongside the château or the two cottages alone. For a picture-perfect French wedding, the entire estate is available on request, sleeping up to 22 guests. 

You will soon adapt to the slow pace of life that the Gers is so well known for as you visit fortified villages, market towns, endless vineyards or simply walk and cycle through the rolling landscapes. The trio of ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Montréal, Fourcès and Larressingle, are all minutes away whilst the gastronomic delights of this region, famed for its foie gras, can be discovered at markets such as Condom, Lectoure and Fleurance.

Canoe or boat along the River Baise, visit Grand Armagnac vineyards, take a hot air balloon ride over summer fields of sunflowers or simply sit back and relax in the magnificent surroundings of your historic and beautiful château in Gascony.

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Surrounded by dreamy landscapes of the Gers, Château Des Remparts is set on a vast estate featuring beautiful parkland and castle ruins, just a short drive to Montréal-du-Gers, Fourcés and Larressingle, three of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

This alluring part of south-western France is known for its slow pace of life, glorious scenery and its authentic yet excellent food and wine. Discover Gascony’s gastronomic delights by visiting local restaurants and atmospheric markets, including night markets in local villages in the height of the summer. Sample the region’s famous foie-gras and magret as well as an abundance of seasonal fruit and vegetables and delicious cheeses. This is also the land of Grand Armagnac and you will have the opportunity to visit some of Gascony’s best vineyards nearby.

The Gers' famous trio of ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ are within easy reach - Montréal (5km), Fourcès (5km) and Larressingle (7km). The bastide town of Montréal has a couple of charming restaurants in its 13th century central square and hosts wonderful medieval night markets in the summer.

Fourcés is a characterful warren of medieval lanes leading to the historic main square with its flower market in late April whilst Larressingle is home to an impressive Gascon castle. Take a walk around Larressingle’s fortified walls and admire the rolling landscapes of vineyards and countryside. There are some fantastic walking trails around the villages, after all Larressingle and Montréal are on the Santiago de Compostella pilgrimage route.

The historic town of Condom (12km) is home to a magnificent cathedral as well as a Wednesday morning market and some excellent restaurants. Take boat trips along the Baise river, hire a little motorboat in the summer or if you prefer canoeing and kayaking then head slightly further south to Beaucaire (23km).

Éauze (20km) is worthy of a visit on a Thursday morning to experience its market day and there is also an 18-hole golf course just outside the town. Other well-known and historic market towns in this region include Lectoure (35km) and Fleurance (43km) whilst enchanting Auch (55km), the historic capital of Gascony, is around an hour away.

Horse-riding, cycling and even hot-air ballooning are other ways to explore the undulating scenery of the Gers. Then there is summer swimming at Castéra-Verduzan and the thermal spas around Barbotan-les-Thermes or a tree-top adventure courses near Aignan for the most adventurous of guests.

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.

The wonderful landscapes of Gascony are perfect for family walks, horse-riding and cycle rides – use the estate’s bikes (or hire children’s or electric bikes in Condom) and set off to discover the glorious scenery.

You can also hire little motor boats in Condom or take a skippered boat excursion along the River Baise. Further south in Beaucaire, there is a lovely spot for canoeing and kayaking along this picturesque stretch of water.

There is summer fun at the Base de Loisirs at Castéra-Verduzan, usually open July and August (and some June weekends) with an inflatable waterpark, supervised swimming and pedaloes.

Lac de l'Uby is another pleasant place for lovely walks and cycle rides and there is a Base de Loisirs with an outdoor swimming pool and play area as well as some gentle summer watersports.

The most adventurous may also enjoy the tree-top adventure course near Aignan whilst animal lovers can learn all about buffalos at La Ferme aux Buffles with its mini farm, restaurant and even weekly jazz concerts.

Event information

Experience the romance of Château Des Remparts with its gorgeous interiors and beautiful grounds with landscaped gardens, castle ruins and vast parkland. As you sip champagne on the grand balcony, gaze out at the rolling landscapes of Gascon countryside all around you.

A picturesque ceremony in the gardens followed by cocktails in the courtyard and feasting on the terrace, there are so many options for your special day with ample space outside for 120 guests. Alternatively, the elegant late 16th century château itself, which has been exquisitely restored, can host a slightly smaller event.

In all cases, end the evening dancing with loved ones in the vaulted cellar, no doubt enjoying the fine wines and Grand Armagnac that this region is so famous for.

Reviews

  • Cannot recommend it more highly

    on 22/03/2021

    Chateau Des Remparts is the perfect place for a large family holiday. The cottages and Chateau are near each other yet provide complete privacy for all of us. We have three married children and six grandchildren. The younger families take the cottages and we use the Chateau. The facilities throughout are brilliant and well thought out; and furnishings are to an extremely high and tasteful standard. The swimming pool for the cottages is ideal for children as the older ones can stand up, allowing for perfect ball games. We are fortunate enough to have stayed at Chateau Des Remparts for two consecutive years and were kindly allowed to roll over last year’s booking into this year.

    The views and location are quite simply stunning. As a family group we choose mainly to stay in the grounds and swimming pools of Chateau Des Remparts using superb local cleaners and cooks recommended by the owners. However Chateau Des Remparts is surrounded by a broad range of excellent restaurants, places of interest, vineyards, markets and shops. All are within easy reach and surrounded by glorious countryside.

    We cannot recommend it more highly. We all love it.

  • Very easy recommendation

    on 29/08/2020

    We have visited Chateau Des Remparts 3 times now. I take my extended family and generally have a party of 16. My children and their respective families stay in the chateau cottages just up the avenue, and my wife and I and several friends stay in the main chateau.

    So it works perfectly with 2 pools on the property, one for the little ones, and one for Adult time and a few bevvies around the pool! We all congregate in the evenings for supper.

    The owner found us caterers to come in to prepare suppers on several occasions as we could not bear to tear ourselves away from the pool. This part of France is a wonderful secret. We love it and hope to one day buy a house in the area .
    Total peace and tranquility and uninterrupted beauty as far as the eye can see.

    It is a very easy recommendation.

  • Exudes easy relaxed luxury

    on 04/09/2019

    This is one of the most beautiful chateaux that you will ever stay in. My husband and I spent a week with friends on two separate occasions. The whole chateau exudes easy relaxed luxury. It has been refurbished to a high but casual standard and is so comfortable. It is so light and airy throughout with ceiling height windows all facing South onto the beautiful vineyards and sunflowers. Sipping Rosé on the terrace and watching the sunset from the Ramparts was our favourite time of day. The pool faces South and West into the evening sun.

    So many lovely markets , cafes and local Bracontes to visit. We cannot recommend this property highly enough.
