Chalabre, Languedoc | Sleeps 8

Chateau des Comtes

Chateau des Comtes is the ultimate luxury escape; a stunning Chateau built at the turn of the 20th century with fully staffed service, including daily breakfast and 4-course evening meal.  Recently restored to glory with ornate ceilings and fireplaces and gleaming hardwood floors, the Chateau is set in the centre of the mountain village of Chalabre in the foothills of the Pyrenees, a region known as the Quercorb in the heart of Cathar country.

The unassuming, almost hidden entrance at street level belies the scale of the property; as you make your way up the towering staircase and gaze up at the beautiful art-deco stained glass skylight you begin to sense its grandeur.  Richly decorated wallpapers, silks and velvet fabrics recreate the splendour of long ago, but modern amenities and a first rate service ensure you enjoy the utmost comfort during your stay.

The journey to Chalabre is stunning; wind your way through forests and across babbling brooks as you climb into the foothills of the Pyrenees and feel your stresses and strains just float away on the clear, fresh mountain air.  The medieval village of Chalabre has much to offer in the way of cafes, shops and restaurants as well as a weekly market. Chateau Chalabre, which dominates the village skyline, is now a Medieval theme park with craft workshops, exhibitions, medieval combat, and an annual jousting tournament! There are many summer festivals and events held in the village including the fete Galois on Bastille Day. Nearby Lac de Montbel offers opportunities for swimming, sailing, kayaking and horse-riding along its shores. Mirepoix should not be missed; dating back to the 10th century, the impeccably preserved, half-timbered buildings create an impressive arcade around the main square.

The Local View
What a fabulous place!  The mountain setting is beautiful and unspoilt. The Chateau itself is very grand, with ornate painted ceilings, marble fireplaces, highly polished hardwood floors, yet it still manages to feel homely and welcoming.  The service is the icing on the cake!
