So wonderful I had to write this is English

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Chateau de ma Mere for our marriage, and were speechless upon arrival. It was so much more than we had expected - the perfect combination of classic old-world architecture and furnishings, and modern finishing touches. My and my new husband's families shared the chateau, and there was more than enough privacy for all. The pool is absolutely beautiful and the grounds spectacularly scenic. The caretakers were always available and showed up within minutes for every last issue - one light fixture wasn't working and an electrician arrived that afternoon to tend to the problem. We weren't sure what we would end up with when planning our wedding online... to say we weren't disappointed is a vast understatement. We were absolutely thrilled and would return in a heartbeat.

The owners are lovely lovely people. So keen to help and only a minute away if you should need help.

The house is superb. There were 17 of us and every bedroom was amazing (with a couple of favourites of course) beds all comfy, bedding good quality; all have separate showers/baths of good standard.

The dining and eating facilities all very good. Excellent cooker fridge dishwasher and drip coffee machines ok.

Pool and area lovely. Gardens beautiful. Outside eating area excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much.

Un séjour parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes un groupe d'amis et louons chaque année une maison différente. Le château de ma mère est la meilleure où nous avons séjourné. Les pièces de vie commune sont parfaites pour accueillir un grand groupe (grande tablée possible aussi bien à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur) et la maison est assez spacieuse pour respecter l'intimité de chacun. La demeure est somptueuse, chaleureuse, nous nous sommes sentis tout de suite chez nous et ne voulions pas en repartir! Les environs sont très beaux également, avec possibilité de faire des marches directement de la maison. Bref, nous avons passé un super séjour et espérons revenir un jour au château de ma mère!

just perfect - can't fault it

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Le Chateau de Ma Mere. It's a gorgeous building, in beautiful surroundings, but with all the modern amenities you could wish for. The kitchen is well equipped, each room has an individual bathroom, there is a great and massive pool outside, loads of toys for children to play with (games, table tennis table, swing in the garden, etc). The house is so large and old that it provides privacy if you require it, but also stays cool when it's hot outside. The rooms are decorated very nicely. Finally, the owners and managers are very nice and friendly people. We had an amazing week and would recommend the chateau to everyone!

Superbes vacances!

  • 5 of 5

Deux semaines dans une endroit idyllique!

Le manoir est une bâtisse rénovée avec beaucoup de goût, très confortable et équipé avec tout ce dont une grande famille avec bébés, enfants et adultes a besoin pour passer des vacances idéales.

La cuisine est très bien équipée, spacieuse et fonctionnelle, les chambres sont charmantes, propres et grandes. Les espaces communs intérieurs et extérieurs nombreux, afin que chacun puisse trouver un coin tranquille selon les envies.

L'endroit est calme et à proximité de la rigole du canal de midi et offre la possibilité de faire des ballades à vélo aux grands et petits.

Les alentours sont également à mentionner, la proximité de Carcassonne, Revel avec son superbe marché et un peu plus loin Toulouse.

On trouve d'ailleurs sur place des plans et des dizaines de dépliants sur les activités, curiosités et visites à ne pas rater dans les environs.

Nous avons eu un coup de coeur pour la façade au lever du soleil avec une lumière magique qui sublime les petits détails des corniches et invite à la détente. Puis le superbe ciel étoilée la nuit qui nous a offert quelques étoiles filantes au grand bonheur des enfants.

Un grand merci à la propriétaire et aux gérants qui ont été aux petits soins. Nous sommes partis les coeurs remplis de beaux souvenirs!
