The Space

This ground floor Chamber [5.2m by 4.5m], in the South tower, has a king size (1.8m x 2m) comfortable bed facing large double French doors which conveniently lead directly to the solar heated pool and customer BBQ area. Its walls are made of thick white and grey stone reflecting its medieval defensive origins. Look out for the hidden gothic window built into the stone wall. The Chamber’s furniture is 18th century English mahogany, complimented with the warming textiles of gold, cream and duck-egg blue.

The Cathar Chamber is associated with the shared ‘Chapel Bathroom’ on the first floor. Alternatively, the Cathar Chamber can also be reserved with the Templar Suite which has a private bathroom on the same floor. The bathroom contains a walk in shower, toilet, sink and towel rails.

The medieval bastide of Lautrec is just 5 minutes away, with a boulangerie, épicerie, boucherie and atmospheric cafes, restaurants and bars. Within 90 minutes drive are all three UNESCO world heritage sites of Carcassonne, Albi and Toulouse.

Rates include continental breakfast, tea and coffee facilities and internet access as well as French and English television. One additional bed can be added to the room for a small fee. Meals and beverages can also be provided for an additional fee.

  • Alison, Paul and staff were all very friendly, helpful & accommodating. They provided good recommendations regarding local restaurants, local history, walking trails, etc. The chateau is historic, spacious and furnished beautifully. Our accommodation exceeded our expectations. Thank you Alison and Paul!

  • The chateau's host, Grant, gave us the warmest welcome and took care of us in a most thoughtful manner. He is an asset to the chateau!

  • This place is fantastic! We were made to feel really welcome by Grant, who gave us loads of really useful advice and recommendations on the area (Grant - the suggestion to go to Saint-Antonin- noble-val was brilliant, our favourite little town of the whole trip and well worth a visit! - thanks!) This place eeks history, has been really lovingly restored but still has it's original rustic charm. Lautrec is also a really charming little town, and a very lovely 30min walk away (handy after all that wine tasting!) We'd love to come back one day...

  • Un havre de tranquillité. Un endroit formidable. Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour au Château de Brametourte, mais bien trop court (2 nuits) Nous avons hâte d'y revenir. Grant est un hôte attentionné. Nous avions l'impression de rendre visite à un ami. Nous conseillons également Le Clos d'Adele où vous dégusterez des plats du terroir délicieux à des prix très abordables. Mille merci :-)

  • We were lucky to visit when we did as we had the whole place to ourselves, apart from Alison, Grant and Jennifer. We were welcomed with easy grace and were stunned by the beauty of the restoration of the chateau and the stories we were told of its history. This is a perfect location from which to explore the entire area, which so very beautiful. Lautrec is a lovely village and there are good restaurants in that town and others nearby.

  • This chance to live in a completely restored Chateau from the middle age was a really "once-in-al-ifetime" experience.
    We enjoyed every second of our three-days-stay in this wonderful part of France.
    Kind Regards
