Chateau Lazerre sits at the edge of a very pretty circular hilltop village some 20km west of Carcassonne. It enjoys the most stunning views of the Aude vineyards and countryside stretching to the snow capped Pyrenees.
With the Med and ski slopes each within an hour, the Chateau is ideally placed for year round holidays. Le Chateau retains all the flavour of its noble past but with up to date comforts. A welcome hamper on arrival is included in the rental price.
Discounts for smaller groups (fewer than 10) are available outside of high season.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors reached by the most magnificent stone and iron staircase. The hall and landings are very grand, indeed rooms in their own right, with polished wood panelling and original tiles. The ground floor enjoys a spacious fully equipped kitchen/larder with 4 oven Aga and views over the courtyard as well as a salon in which to relax adjoined to the dining room that seats 15. The comfortable salon has settees, satellite television (full TV coverage via Freesat), DVD player and Ipod docking station. The house has free wifi access.
On the first floor there are three large bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en-suite with the Maitre’s bedroom. On the top floor there are 2 further bedrooms, a playroom and a shower room. Please note that every room has two full height windows with views. All the bedrooms have double beds and three of them have additional singles ( disguised as daybeds). There are also two further singles in the playroom, a couple of camp beds, 2 cots and a crib. The front of the house opens onto a courtyard with ample parking, glorious views, and an ancient vine to sit under on hot evenings. Adjacent is the beautiful barn of winemaker and farmer Mon Martin.
To the rear is the fully enclosed and private garden with the 10x5m salt filtration pool (better on the skin and kids eyes), shady trees, recliners, bbq and dining table. The large teak table has 16 chairs and is normally sited under our walnut tree, plus there are loungers around the pool. The garden is fully enclosed and catches the sun all day, but has shade under the walnut and fig trees...help yourselves they are delicious!

This is the centre of Cathar country, where history abounds. There are castles to visit and views that astonish! The Chateau is only a short trip to the beaches and delightful ports of the Mediterranean or the ski slopes and wonderful walks of the Pyrenees.
Le Chateau is in the midst of the 'golden triangle' of Fanjeaux, Limoux and Mirepoix that show the Aude in its best light. The views from Le Chateau are truly stunning with layers of vine covered hills framed by the backdrop of the snow capped Pyrenees - the area is often described as the Tuscany of France.
Through Limoux towards Quillan there is canoeing and river swimming.
Carcassonne, the Unesco world heritage site, is nearby, as is the Canal du Midi. Wine buffs will savour local wines that are enjoying an increasing reputation. The Chateau has a local expert who will escort you to various domaines. Castelnaudary, a 10 minute drive, is the renowned home of casoulet. Golf is at Carcassonne, and horse-riding and fishing are within minutes of the chateau.
Carcassonne airport (20 mins) has budget flights from various UK centres, Toulouse (50 mins) is an international airport and Beziers (60 mins) now has Ryanair. Perpignan, Montpelier and Nimes airports are all within striking distance. The nearest mainline SNCF is Carcassonne.

The castle, which even has a spa treatment room, is magnificent, as are the views from the King’s Suite. The windows look out over immaculate gardens, a folly, lake, vineyard and stables, which house horses you can ride every day [reviewing Chateau de Challagne in the Loire Valley]
