Carcassonne house description
Welcome to Le Chateau Lasserre. This unique 19th century village house has been carefully renovated to a high standard to provide everyday comfort ,yet still retains an abundance of original features which have been carefully and lovingly restored.
Le Chateau is furnished with antiques mingled with finds from local brocantes,as well as comfortable sofas to relax in. Not forgetting that we love children to come and stay there is a selection of toys and games and always a wide variety of books to read by the pool.
Le Chateau is an imposing Maison de Maitre (house of the village) situated discreetly at the edge of Lasserre de Prouille, a hilltop village (circulade). South facing with views of the Pyrenees, Corbieres and vineyards and sunflowers amongst gently rolling hills. This is a walkers paradise and an inspiration for artists and photographers. The local people are particularly friendly the nearest neighbours being winegrowers.
The house has a handsome facade with each room having the benefit of two large double windows. Based on three floors it is a light, spacious and airy residence. Period features such as panelling in the hallway, original tiling and open fireplaces with a Godin woodburning stove.
Sympathetically furnished, the house is ideal for families or group holidays and those seeking stylish self catering accommodation and with 500 sqm of living space everyone has plenty of room.
Although the owner and family sometimes live on site in an adjoining apartment they maintain a discreet presence. On hand if necessary they are there to ensure that your holiday is stress free and runs smoothly, your stay with them and your satisfaction is of paramount importance. They want your holiday in South West France to be a memorable and happy one. They are more than happy to arrange in-house catering if required, please enquire further for details.

We stayed at the chateau for 2 weeks with our two daughters, ages 8 months and 7 years. All of us had a wonderful time! Sally and George were impeccable hosts, working to ensure that everything was optimally accommodating for us and the girls. The house is magical; we have rented several holiday homes in France and Spain, but this is most certainly the holiday that will stand out in our memory. We'd love to come back again.

We enjoyed our stay in Sally's beautiful, spacious and welcoming home. Highlights were the big country kitchen, the beautiful vistas of gently rolling countryside, the markets filled with wonderful produce, great wine, castles on crags; and our friendly helpful hosts. Would love to visit again.

The above mentioned Renee Bl;anche of New Orleans, La is our daughter. We are the parents of the large group who rented Chateau Lasserre for 2 weeks in July. Everything about the chateau was wonderful. It was roomy, well furnished, situated in a lovely little circular village and had the most spectacular views of rolling hills, vineyards, other villages and the Pyranees in the distance! The owners Sally and "His Lordship" were wonderful hosts and very helpful with suggestions for touring, shopping, and more. We all hated to leave and would highly reccommend this rental to anyone, especially large family groups.

Our family rented (ok the ancient ones paid) Chateau Lasserre for our annual family vacation for two weeks in July. Had we known that Sally and her ole' man would have become a favorite part of the stay we would have paid more and broken less. The home owners add a charming and entertaining aspect to an already delightful home and wonderful environment. Our group consisted of 15 people ranging in age from 5 years young to 80 years old and we all felt very comfortable. There is plenty of individual space and room for large gatherings, something for everyone! The property, home and village are comfortably nestled in a location that allows anyone easy access to whatever their passions desire. This area in France is wonderful!! Adding to all of that is the insightful knowledge of the home owners. Do not pass up an opportunity to enjoy this very special home with very special owners.Fred, Renée & Alexander Blanche

We stayed here for a month and it was absolutely wonderful. The chateau was welcoming to our group of all ages. The area was beautiful and the views from the windows each morning started our day. We loved the aga, the pool, and especially our hosts. Don't miss this experience.

This has to be the greatest vacation value in France!! Six bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, great swimming pool, washing machine, dishwasher, an Aga stove (which none of us had seen before, and which all of us loved), fresh bread in the village and a large grocery store ten minutes away, less than 45 minutes from every place worth visiting in Languedoc, and, to our enormous surprise and gratitude, the best meals, at the best prices, we had during the whole trip. Best of all, George and Sally Crocker are delightful and knowledgeable hosts.

We came across the Chateau purely by chance whilst searching for somewhere to stay close to our uninhabitable building site of a house.And what a find. The house is magnificent, with a real French feel to the whole interior and lovingly restored. The shutters on our very comfortable first floor ensuite bedroom opened up on our first morning to deliver a breathtaking view of snow-capped Pyrenees. Although the wrong time of year for swimming, the pool looked inviting and big enough to do some serious lengths in.And the village itself is picturesque with great countryside walks all around – even into the nearby Roman hill town of Fanjeaux for the more athletic.We nearly forgot to mention the best part. The English owners. They were friendly and welcoming and immediately made us feel totally at home without being in the slightest bit intrusive.Our advice would be to go and stay at the Chateau before everyone discovers it. We are sure you’ll have a great time.

About the owner: Le Chateau is owned by Dr Anita Sandison who for part of the year lives in an adjacent apartment with her young daughter and husband Ian. The family have lived in France since 2001 having renovated a 14th century manoir in Brittany and have now moved south searching for more sunshine! This winter 2010/2011 sees a great deal of work being carried out at Le Chateau with all of the paintwork being refreshed and new curtains, sofas and antique furnishings. Wifi is available throughout the house as well as satellite TV.
Why the Owner Chose Carcassonne:
Le Chateau has some of the most stunning views in all France. Surrounded by the vines the locally important house is part of a very much unspoiled traditional village, with very friendly inhabitants.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Le Chateau has a lovely 'feel' with so much space to enjoy. All visitors love the pool! The area has so much to offer for all tastes, from historical sites, great walks and of course wines and great local produce.
