    • Located in the middle of the Gaillac vineyard between Albi and Toulouse, the Castle of Mauriac was founded in 1214 by the Templar Guiriaudus de Mauriaco, which gave rise to the Castle of Mauriac.

      It has been ranked among the fifty most beautiful private residences in France because it is fully furnished. It is a Pastelier castle which cultivated Pastel until the 17th century which was used to dye clothes blue and from which a ball called a shell was made, which gave rise to the Pays de Plenty.

      Guest rooms: 5 rooms available with period four-poster beds. From 40 m² to 120 m² per room (prices from 110€ to 230€ per night including breakfast).

      You sleep in the castle even in the apartments of the former lords (visit of the castle in VIP included).

      Marriages:

      High-end weddings for up to 250 people with the possibility of having the ceremony on site. The wedding takes place inside the castle itself. 25 people can sleep in four-poster beds. Aperitif in the park of the 5000 m² castle. Meals in the 400 m² inner courtyard with the central dance floor. Or if it rains 300 m² of rooms inside.

    Magnificent. The family have been restoring this grand “castle” for 2 generations and the work is ongoing. History. The owner is a real character full of passion. As good as it gets for historical places to stay.

    Good tour of the chateau, the tour guide was friendly, informative and made a special effort to speak English! The chateau was small but had many interesting art and features, plus spectacular views from the new viewing point at the top!!

    I felt we got a bit conned by this one, I have a good mind to complain to the French Tourist board. How it is presented on the adverts is not how it is. Essentially the owner bought this chateau and...
