Property Summary

South of France 14th Century Village Chateau to rent in Languedoc, sleeps 13.

If you would like to see the amazing video presentations of the Chateau, click here and here.

This Renaissance village Château in the Languedoc, South of France once belonged to Marguerite de Navarre, sister of the King, Francois I. There are still a few 14th century architectural details remaining, however the 17th century renaissance style dominates. The Chateau is, in effect, 2 houses in an L-shape around a walled central courtyard with a swimming pool.

The 'Master' house (250m2) has some extraordinary stonework with vaulted archways and a grand staircase, and the 'Maison d'Amis (200-250m2) has also retained some of its grandeur. This Languedoc Chateau has been cleverly restored preserving the authentic carved limestone window surrounds and doorways, especially in the intimate entry courtyard.

This is ideal for 2 or 3 families who want to be  holiday together in the South of France and yet preserve a sense of independence. The total living space comprises 550m2.

Partial air conditioning is planned for the 'Maison d'Amis' in 2019.

*Please note that in April and over the Easter period only 2 week bookings are accepted for both 'Maison de Maitre' and 'Maison d'Amis'. It is possible to rent just the 'big' house 'Maison de Maitre' for one week from April.

Client Comments

Thanks so much and thank you for sharing the chateau with us. We loved it and all your beautiful things. Best,Claire and family, South France Villas Client, August 2016
We loved our stay here – far exceeded all of our expectations. We met up with a group of friends for a stay in August of 2016 and couldn’t have been happier. We left our booking a little late and were surprised this one was still available.  14 of us in all – 7 adults and 7 kids (one baby).  We knew the house would be nice from the pictures and it didn’t disappoint.   Very French and just beautiful.   So much space and really well thought out – place to eat outside, tons of space for the kids, near a historic church and walking distance to the little shops that make France so great – bakery, butcher, fruit & veg specialty shops and a small supermarket (two big ones just a ten minute drive away).  The biggest surprise was the village overall.  We loved being in a smaller village and it had much more life than we were expecting.   They had a festival when we were there (complete with a walking around black fireworks flaming paper mache bull) and on our last night they had a small block party for karaoke night where they blocked off the main street – so much fun.  I knew I’d be drinking lots of wine and eating lots of cheese on this trip, but the last thing I thought I’d be doing was singing (terribly) with a bunch of French locals at midnight.  20min drive to great beaches near Adge (Rochelongue was our favorite – where we ate at L’infini).  We also saw the fireworks there on the Wed – beautiful.   Loved this villa and Montblanc.  Staying away from one of the bigger cities really turned out to be a bonus – Montblanc was such a surprise – so much character and not overcrowded with tourists.   Definitely recommend this villa to anyone considering it. Mike, South France Villas Client, August 2016  
I meant to email a while back, just to say thank you for helping us arrange our holiday in Chateau Navarre, Montblanc in August this year, we had a superb time, the chateau was great, well equipped with a fantastic pool, it suited us very well in two houses. Please bear us in mind for any similar villas that fit 13 in July/August next year. Many thanks. Fiona, July/August 2013
