About Martin Holliss
Hallo! I'm Martin Holliss, one of the owners of the Domaine de Montagnac. Having fallen in love with the place, my wife, Liz, and I bought the Domaine in 2005 with some of our oldest and dearest friends. Our children have come to love it as well, to the point that our son was married at the domaine during 2016.
Martin Holliss purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2005
Why Martin Holliss chose Lapenne
It's just so lovely here! Rural, tranquil and with amazing views. If you want to holiday in a city then the Domaine de Montagnac is not for you. However, if you love the country, enjoy large characterful houses with wooden beams, and want to relax into a combination of tourism, walking and French rural life, then Montagnac is likely to appeal.

What a magnificent place to stay!
We all 9 fitted in most comfortably. We hardly used the private living rooms, eating together either in the main hall or out on the private patio. Long walks (including the 'Gypsy' or the Church in the rock) and short including the Enclosed Church, outings to the Underground River nr Foix and local markets (go early) made the time fly. Christina was a gem making sure that everything was perfect for us. So relaxing and the kitchen so great for gournet meals. Thanks so much.
Many thanks for this very positive feedback. Delighted you had a good time, and that Christina was helpful! :-)
The house and setting are wonderful for a large group of people. If you have a keen chef in your party, as we did, then the kitchen is an absolute dream. The house is well equipped and has all the amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.
These guests travelled from Spain and France, and reserved the whole of the Maison d'Artistes for a large family Christmas.
The house is perfect for groups of family or good friends, which is exactly what we had in mind when we renovated the house. Fully equipped and high quality were our guiding principles.
This sort of feedback shows we've got a lot right, and makes all our effort and investment worthwhile! :-)
The Domaine de Montagnac is a remarkable place. Situated in a quiet and beautiful (but not remote) part of the Ariege in southwest France, with rolling hills all around, it is an ideal base for a relaxing rural holiday. As well as the local village (St Felix de Tournegat) being classified as a National Monument, there are amazing panoramic views of the Pyrenees mountain range – close enough for skiing or high altitude walks. With tourism and cultural attractions all over the region, and civilization (and, so, shops!) just a 15 minute drive away, there are very few holiday locations that can compare. Delights such as Mirepoix and Limoux are on the doorstep, as are the Cathar castles including Foix and Montsegur. For those wanting the sea, the Mediterranean and the famous town of Collioure are just 2 hours away. Ski: There are several ski resorts within easy driving distance. While not as grand (or expensive!) as the Alps, all local ski resorts in the Pyrenees have a good variety of skiing in lovely surroundings. The nearest ski resort, les Monts D'Olmes, is a 45 minute drive away. The larger resort of Ax-les-Thermes (also has thermal baths & a casino, is 90 minutes drive away. Downhill « Ski de Piste » resorts: Les Mont d’Olmes (1500- 2115 m / 18,5 kms of pistes) Ax les 3 Domaines (1400 - 2400 m / 75 kms of pistes) Guzet (1100 -2100 m / 40 kms of pistes) Ascou Pailhères (1500 - 2000 m / 20 kms of pistes) Mijanes Donezan (1530 - 2000 m / 9 kms of pistes) Goulier Neige (1500 - 2000 m / 5 kms of pistes) Cross-country « Ski de Fond » resorts: Plateau de Beille (1800 -2000 m / 75 kms of pistes) Domaine du Chioula (1240 - 1650 m / 60 kms of pistes) Etang de Lers (1300 - 1615 m / 30 kms of pistes) La Tour Lafont (1250 - 1500m / 15 kms of pistes)
