Très beau site

  • 4 of 5

Très bel endroit. Les murs chargés d'histoire ont chaleureusement acceuilli nos soirées et les grands arbres centenaires du parc ont décoré nos déjeuners en plein air. A apprécier en famille nombreuse.

Mr

  • 5 of 5

We have had the best time of our lives this week, celebrating our wedding with our friends and family. The chateau surpassed all of our expectations and we feel very lucky to have been able to stay here. No one wanted to leave and we are talking about having a reunion next year. Magical memories created for life. We will most definitely be back.

Thank you so much Rebecca for your help and wonderful hospitality.

La vie de chateau entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Devenir châtelains durant des vacances, dans un lieu d'exception, c'est possible !

La Commanderie nous a réservé un séjour d'exception dans un lieu plein de charme.

La décoration raffinée respecte l'esprit d'époque du château tout en offrant un confort excellent, que ce soit au niveau des chambres, des salles de bain ou de la cuisine parfaitement équipée pour un grand groupe.

Les conseils de Rebecca et ses adresses de producteurs locaux (vins, canard ..) nous ont de surcroît permis de découvrir les qualités de la région.

Ces superbes vacances, dans une atmosphère très particulière, d'un autre temps, nous ont donné un gout de "revenez-y" !

Un groupe d'amis reconnaissants

Vie de château

  • 5 of 5

Excellentes prestations et conseils avertis donnés par la propriétaire. Nous avons apprécié sa préoccupation permanente de satisfaire ses hôtes et sa longue liste de fournisseurs et activités alentours. Accueil chaleureux. Rébecca Gregory nous a confié les clés de sa demeure sans appréhension, même si un groupe d'amis de 22 personnes avec des enfants entre 5 et 17 ans peut inquiéter au premier abord. Très riche région autant au niveau historique que touristique, mais il est également possible de séjourner à la Commanderie uniquement pour profiter du site.Nous gardons donc cette bonne adresse que nous recommandons pour un dépaysement total et une autre vie!

What a fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Commanderie to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was like a fairytale, surrounded by history and luxury. The park with its swimming pool and the sculptures is a fabulous setting for relaxation. Rebecca was a perfect host with plenty of local knowledge and advice for days out. We are looking forward for our next big occasion to be able to return!

A country blessed with history, natural beauty and gastronomy !

La Commanderie is in th Heart of the Cathar country in the Aude,

ideally located between the Pyrenees and Mediterranean sea.

It is a paradise for lovers of hiking, horse-riding, fishing, hunting,

alpine and cross-country-skying.

History lovers will find this wild region similar to Tuscany,

with landscapes littered with Romanesque churches.

Close to the medieval fortified town of Mirepoix and

to Castelnaudary, with its world famous cassoulet, you can also

discover the Cathar castles, including Montsegur.

Just 40 minutes from La Commanderie are the medieval

City of Carcassonne (a world heritage site), the chateau of Foix

an the 'pink city' of Toulouse, with many cultural and

touristic attractions. Great for kids : the Forge of Pyrenes,

the Prehistoric Park, Space city and

many other fun and sporty activities.

And don't forget to sample the local delights

from the market of Mirepoix or Castelnaudary.
