Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Ideal for Parties

The River Touyre encircles this pastoral 18th century chateau in Midi-Pyrénées, where the old and new commingle. The owners, Nico and Rachel, have lovingly restored the two wings to both honour the ancient stone walls and spoil guests with modern comforts. The children can stay all together in the 15 person dorm room (with a ping pong table for good measure), while adults will adore the quiet peace of the grounds and their private rooms, simply decorated with antiques.

Outside you’ll find a romantic chapel, the frescoes of the past crumbling slowly away. Weddings look divine on the 22 acres of private grounds, with stone stairs and terraced gardens winding down toward the river. For a smaller affair, have meals on the terrace by the infinity pool, or ask the on-site concierge where to go for the region’s rich and warming foods, like foie gras or aligot.

Located only 30 km from the Carcassonne airport, your guests will arrive with no trouble. A 10 minute drive will take you from your family chateau to Mirepoix, where the town square, Place des Couverts, is not to be missed. Drive an hour to Toulouse for great architecture and art of the region.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • This old stone chateau in Midi-Pyrénées has been restored and improved (think: infinity pool).
  • A child-friendly dorm room lets the kids room all together.
  • The 22 acres of gardens are a divine setting for a wedding! Ancient stairs connect terraces that open into fields, while roses climb the chateau.

What you should know…

  • The stunning infinity pool by the cliff requires adult supervision if kids are swimming.
  • You’ll require a car hire, as the nearest town is about 3 km away.

The house comprises two adjacent, connected buildings: the core of the old house and a newer wing. Both have been completely renovated and restored.

On the ground floor there is a very large kitchen/dining room (11 x 8m) with an enormous open fireplace and a pantry, a small library and an elegant salon. There are stone or terracotta-tiled floors throughout and ceilings both on this floor and upstairs are about 4 m high. Stone stairs lead up to two magnificent bedroom suites with their own bathrooms and one other small twin bedroom.

Up again and there's an enormous (11 x 30 sq. metres) room set out as a childrens' dormitory which sleeps about 15 (with a Ping-Pong table) with two showers and a loo in the tower. Down the hall there are 3 double rooms, 2 twin rooms and 2 bathrooms; a large double height music room with a grand piano, a study and a spacious gallery on the 2nd floor, with a full size snooker table.  This room is also used for yoga classes. The house is fully furnished with beautiful antiques, in a clean, simple and uncluttered manner.

Outside a very dramatic infinity pool sits on the cliff's edge. There is a pool house with a shaded terrace and seating for sixteen or so, a kitchen, a shower and a barbecue.  The garden falls over 4 terraces of flowers, steps and paths into beautiful surrounding meadows, with the river running through and the high chateau walls are covered by scented climbing roses.

Quille is perfect to take for a week or two for your holiday with friends or family. Parties of 16 adults or 25 with children can be easily accommodated. But the place is equally comfortable, spacious and peaceful with just one or two couples.

Loading map

Sheltered by wooded foothills but looking out to the Pyrenees a few miles to the south, the Château lies on a rock cliff which falls sheer to the River Touyre below. The river runs almost 360° around the rock, creating a "presqu'île" of the property and its garden. Although secluded, local towns Mirepoix and Lavelanet are both within 15 minutes.

The surrounding area is famous for its beauty, its architecture and its Cathar history. All the Cathar castles (Montségur, Roquefixade, Peyrepetuse, Puilaurens, Quillan...) are within an hour or so. Plenty of walking, riding, skiing is available nearby, there is lake sailing 10 minutes away and the coast is an hour's drive.

Shopping is in Mirepoix, about 10-15 minutes away. Toulouse is an hour away and has regular daily flights from Heathrow, Gatwick, Paris, Nice and most major European cities. Ryanair flies daily from Stansted to Carcassonne, which is 40 minutes from the house. The property is also accessible from Montpellier (2 hours), Perpignan (75 minutes), Girona and Barcelona (2-3 hours).

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences 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!

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

Event information

Quille has become a hugely popular wedding venue. The Chapel, Chateau and private grounds provide endless possibilities to tailor your perfect wedding.

The Romanesque chapel seats 140 people and is very simple and beautiful, or you can exchange vows in the garden. Have dinner under the stars up on the terrace by the house for a more intimate wedding or for a larger affair on the meadow below with the river running round it. 

The Chateau can supply a beautiful marquee for the meadow. The Chateau and Chapel, lit up at night, provide a dramatic and magical backdrop. The Chateau and its grounds are also perfect for a big family party, an anniversary or birthday party, a concert or a yoga or painting week.

The owners can arrange and assist with photographers, catering, local wines, flowers, musicians, English speaking celebrants, hairdressers, and local accommodation.

Please note any event rental may be subject to additional charges (that will be pre-agreed) on top of the published rental amount. This is to cover the extra costs associated with putting on a wedding. Please contact for further details.

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.
