South of Toulouse, on the edge of the Ariège, you will find the magnificent Château Ariège. Built around the middle of the 19th century for a famous baroness, the beautiful château is surrounded by its own woods and parkland, making it a haven of relaxation.
The château itself has five comfortable bedrooms, all ensuite, as well as elegant reception rooms, a formal dining room with a grand fireplace and a perfectly equipped kitchen. For larger groups of family or friends, the old coach house just behind the château has been converted into a four-bedroom gîte on the first floor and a games room below. The château can be rented by itself for ten guests, with exclusive use of the grounds, or with the gîte offering nine bedrooms in total.
Perhaps ideal for visiting friends or even older teens, the first-floor gîte offers its own living room and kitchen alongside four bedrooms. This accommodation provides flexible and private space, with its own terrace, whilst allowing guests to make the use of the fantastic entertaining spaces in the château as well as the beautiful grounds.
Walk through meadows of wild flowers in the Pyrenees in late spring and summer or spend time visiting some of the area's magnificent cities from rose-tinted Toulouse to magnificent Carcassonne. Delightful villages and beautiful bastide towns can also be explored and don't miss the weekly markets in places such as Mirepoix for the opportunity to sample some local delights.
Set in a 25-acre estate with wonderful views, a large swimming pool and tennis court, Château Ariège is perfect for large family groups or friends, offering space to reflect and unwind all year round. /n Security deposit /n €1500 paid prior to arrival by bank transfer to the owner and will be refunded up to two weeks after departure, subject to full inspection. /n Arrival time /n 4.00 p.m. /n Departure time /n 10.00 a.m. /n Energy costs included? /n Yes. /n Heating costs included? /n There are heating charges from October to April, payable locally, depending on usage. /n Linen & towels included? /n Yes. /n Changeover day /n Saturday. /n End of stay cleaning included? /n Included.
