This 11th century château, medieval home of the Viscounts of Lautrec, is a tranquil haven of green living, combining nature and wildlife with an ancient past. Left frozen in time following the 16th century religious wars, it has been sensitively restored, using traditional and sustainable methods.
Each of the seven suites and chambers are furnished with elegant antiques and luxurious silks, satins and tapestries with private bathrooms and stunning reception rooms. Encompassing the chateau is 25 hectares of private woods, gardens and meadows.
Yet the medieval bastide of Lautrec is just 5 minutes away, with a boulangerie, épicerie, boucherie and atmospheric cafe / bar. Within an hour and a half are the world heritage sites of Carcasonne, Albi and Toulouse.
This castle is the perfect host for your group holidays, weddings, ceremonies and special anniversary parties. Feel free to visit (website hidden).
Pricing includes breakfast, pool and BBQ area and free wifi and satelite TV service among other facilities.
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.
Estuvimos una noche y tanto el trato como el castillo fueron inmejorables. Es un lugar precioso y cuidado al detalle. El desayuno estupendo.
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.

Superbe experience avec des hotes des plus accueillants. Recommandé.
Fantastic place!! Beautiful, peaceful, and remarkable host. Really great for a gateway weekend!
ALison and Paul's chateau was a fabulous place to stay to explore Lautrec and surrounding the Tarn and midi Pyrenees. From the moment we walked in we felt like we were part of a group of wonderful friends, we came and went as we pleased, swam in the pool, were included lovely conversations while sipping on some lovely wine and allowed to enjoy our own space when we wanted time out. We meet other guests and friends over a lovely breakfast on the terrace. They have the art of making you feel like a friend but treating you like a special guest. We did not want to leave and would go back in a second if we could. We would definitely go back if the opportunity ever arose again.
A truly lovely place! The chateau is so beautifully and skilfully restored and you get to enjoy not only the pilgrim chamber but the magical courtyard, the huge sitting rooms, the vast garden and pool, the views from the terrace etc... We felt we got plenty of luxury for small money and would definitely like to come back and spend more time here! Alison and her helpers were all friendly and willing to tell us about the place and its history. The atmosphere was very laid-back, just perfect for unwinding and enjoying life!
The breakfast was served on the terrace and there were plenty of options to choose from (also healthy ones, which wasn't the case in most other places in France!)
Endroit vraiment très charmant, la chambre est grande, la salle de bain spacieuse. L'accueil a été très sympathique et le petit déjeuner très généreux. La vue depuis la piscine est magnifique.
Seule petit défaut de cette chambre (mais il y a d'autres chambres dans le château) : la proximité avec la cuisine.
Le village de Lautrec est à proximité et plein de charme.
I stayed 4 nights as a solo traveller in the Romantic Troubadour Suite, Chateau Brametorte and totally loved the hosts, the chateau and the area! The chateau is an amazing historic building and your hostess Alison is not only awesome to have a good laugh with, but is an expert on the history of the chateau and surrounding area. Her attention to design detail is noticable throughout the chateau, and if you are into renovation you will love the work which has gone into bringing this place back to life. I was welcomed by the lovely Liz (Liz & Alison are the perfect hosts) with a very welcome cup of tea and great chat, and enjoyed several excursions to the local bars...to be honest I felt like part of the 'Brametorte family' when I left and was really sad to say goodbye. The views from the large Romantic Troubadour room are wonderful being in a tower part of the chateau, up a large stone staircase...and the huge, spotlessly clean pool with sun chairs is just to die for...I miss basking in the sun taking in the wonderful view across the lavender bushes into the surrounding valley. Would recommend your own transport if visiting (I had a car & bicycle) for convenience. Would love to stay here again, next time for much longer.
Awesome place, there are no other words that could describe our stay.
