This is a unique opportunity to stay in a medieval castle. The 12th century Chateau dominates the village of Boussagues. It is extremely spacious and comfortable (1200 sq feet) with a wonderful atmosphere. There is a master bedroom with a 12th century vaulted ceiling & a large 16th century fireplace and floor, there are French doors onto the courtyard. The 2nd bedroom is slightly smaller with exposed stone walls and 12th century flagstone floor.

The castle is spectacular, it is even more impressive than the photos. Erik and Annette are great hosts, so friendly, genial and helpful. The pool is so nice, a super way to spend a day. The accommodation has everything you could possibly need, seriously, if you can find a kitchen implement that you need that isn’t there, then you need to get out more. The surrounding area is beautiful, with loads to do. One of my favourite holidays ever
Extraordinary - a brilliant place to stay.
This is an extraordinary place to stay in the true sense of the word. The so-called appartment is very well equipped with two good sized bedrooms, the massive 'hall', and a very large kitchen. There must be a dozen seating areas around the property - by the pool, on various terraces, and outside the kitchen door.
Our hosts, Erik and Annette, who live in another part of the castle, were discrete but always on hand to help or advise.
Also lovely and undiscovered area with few Brits - a good sign from our view.
Well worth the money
The whole experience was Fantastic for the second time. New pool better than expectations.
I highly recommend this location for touring this part of France. The castle is beautiful and equipped perfectly for a relaxing stay. The owners are charming and we will be going again. A car is essential, however!
Thank you and welcome back/
Ein Traum in toller Landschaft
Ein altes Weinchateau, das alt und geschmackvoll eingerichtet ist ohne Komfort vermissen zu lassen. Ein eigener Pool und eine harmonisch gestaltete Außenanlagen sowie super netten Vermietern machen den Urlaub zur perfekten Erholung. Die Ruhe ist ein weiterer Pluspunkt.
Lieu très charmant
Le château, datant du 11e siècle, a été très bien aménagé (cuisine, salle de bain, piscine...) pour permettre un très bon confort. Le mode de construction du château permet de se retrouver dans un endroit frais même en plein été. Le lieu est très charmant, bien entretenu et mis en valeur. Comme dit dans les précédents commentaires, les propriétaires vivent sur place mais sont très discrets et sympathiques.
Merci. Erik et Anette
