Overview

Set in 50 acres of private park and woodland, the elegant Chateau Siregarde is finished to a very high standard, and successfully combines the old world charm of antiques and beautiful pictures with modern day amenities such as luxury bathrooms, central heating and a heated 20 metre swimming pool.

It is five minutes drive from a charming village offering all amenities, and only fifteen minutes drive from the larger town of Cazeres. It is also forty five minutes drive from Toulouse. This unique ten bedroom chateau is generously proportioned over two floors and boasts numerous reception rooms, a large hall and an attractive kitchen. Ideal for groups of up to 17 people, it is surprisingly comfortable and intimate with smaller groups. There is a light welcome supper with wine on arrival!

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • This is a very traditional but very well maintained chateau retaining some very interesting original decor
  • The kitchen is big and charming, and the bathrooms are all huge and quite unique!
  • There are 50 acres of grounds to explore and the beautiful surrounding countryside is of great cultural interest

What you should know…

  • The pool is a few yards away from the chateau, so a short walk is required
  • The chateau caretaker is really lovely - but he doesn't speak English, so should be good for practicing your French!
  • You probably need a car to get to the chateau and explore the surrounding area

The property is entered through an impressive gate that leads into a circular courtyard. The main door to the Chateau opens into the Grand Hallway which leads straight through to the park and garden. On the South side is the dining room (seats 14 with a smaller table for 6 also available) and the three drawing rooms (a comfortable TV room, the elegant Blue Salon and the Music Room with its piano).

At the front of the chateau is the original 18th century terrace which is ideal for summer lunches. The ground floor also has two bedrooms, all the remaining bedrooms are on the first floor. The kitchen is a stunning 45 square metre room which is a pleasure to cook in.

The grand staircase leads to the first floor and to the Library and the eight upstairs bedrooms. There are two extremely grand bedrooms with their own dressing rooms and bathrooms (Chambre Monsieur and Chambre Madame); two other large double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms (in addition to one on the ground floor); a charming twin bedroom, and a further three single bedrooms, with shared bathroom.

The pool (heated to 27 C and 20m x 5m) is out of sight from the chateau, yet only about one minutes walk from the garden side door. The estate has a number of outbuildings in original condition, including a cottage, an 18th century dairy and a stable and farm building built in the early 19th century.

The chateau is set in roughly 50 acres of park and woodland, originally landscaped in the English fashion. Many of the traces of original garden remain, including a 350 year old cedar tree, an alley tree, an alley of chestnut trees and an enormous pond where wild duck nest.

Early morning risers will regularly see deer grazing. Around 25 acres of the grounds are unspoilt woods. In spring and summer the pastures and woods are dotted with wild flowers, and in autumn wild mushrooms, including cêpes grow in abundance.

The 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.

Reviews

  • A fantastic week

    Posted by Anand S on 27/08/2013

    Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our week at Chateau Siregarde. The kitchen is the centre of every house and it was cool, airy and spacious. The owners had left all the utensils and basic food essentials that you need as well as a complimentary quiche. The other rooms in the chateau were in excellent condition and there were some really great features such as a billiard room and some secret stairways that the kids enjoyed exploring. The covered area by the pool (with nearby fridge) meant that it was possible to relax outside for many hours without getting frazzled. The rental cost also included cleaning of the kitchen area each morning which was a very nice touch. The only downside was intermittent wifi which was outside of the owner's control.

     

    I would strongly recommend the chateau for any groups (including children) looking for a luxurious stay in the South of France at a reasonable cost.

  • Relaxing time away

    Posted by Mrs P on 26/08/2010

    the kids spent their time in the pool or playing football on the lawn, leaving us adults free to relax around the pool while enjoying the beautiful sunshine, reading and contemplating which delicacy from the local market we might have for dinner. Bliss.

  • We hope to be back next year!

    Posted by Jane H on 19/08/2010

    We hope to be back next year to explore more of the area. there is so much to see and there couldn't be a more comfortable and homely base than Chateau Siregarde ... thank you for a wonderful time!

  • What a special place this was.

    Posted by Donna & Robert Saiia on 14/08/2010

    Thank you so much for allowing us to experience the serenity of your home. We have savored every moment. This is a special time for us and the peace we felt while here was a balm.

  • This truly is an undiscovered gem

    Posted by Rachael Foggo on 14/08/2010

    This truly is an undiscovered gem. The chateau is a tranquil and magical place surrounded by the most stunning countryside. I attended a yoga retreat here and spent a week enjoying the magnificent house, grounds and pool. The grounds are vast, so plenty of space to explore and staying in the house really takes you back to a bygone era. While huge and rambling, there is a definite 'homely' feel, and it has been so lovingly looked after. I'm hoping to be able to return to the chateau with my family, so I can share the wonderful experience.

  • Siregarde

    Posted by J S on 13/08/2010

    The owner recently completed an impressive restoration of the place, and yet it felt untouched, like there should be velvet ropes everywhere guarding each authentic detail from the likes of modern us. But there weren't. I could sit in every deliciously upholstered chair, walk across every stone checkered floor, touch every ceramic knob. I wanted to skip through all the rooms and look through all the drawers and walk wistfully through the fields.
