Château de Brametourte

Front Terrace

Château de Brametourte, founded in the 11th century, surveys a stunning panorama across 20 hectares of parkland, woods & sun-flowered fields towards the Pyrenean peaks.

Situated in the south of France, close to the award winning bastide village of Lautrec, central to three UNESCO World Heritage sites, Toulouse, Albi and Carcassonne, the tranquil beauty of this ancient home of Barons & Viscounts, belies its turbulent past.  The castle was immersed in the religious fervour of Cathars, Knights of the Templar & the Wars of Religion.  Sieged during the 1580s, it fell into disrepair and was left forgotten and frozen in time.

Nearly half a millennium later, the Château has been traditionally and ecologically restored; pioneering one of France’s first, self-sustainable medieval castles.

The Château has become a centre for events and holidays, combining comfort, elegance and beauty within its historic walls.  One thousand years on, we are proud that our guests delight at the tranquillity and companionability that this ancient refuge consistently surrenders.

We look forward to welcoming you to Château de Brametourte.
