|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
This holiday house for 9 – a renovated farm house that has retained its charm – is surrounded by nature: fields, acres and the park of the Château de Dournes. It offers on the ground floor a fully-equipped kitchen (large dining table, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer…) and a spacious living room, partly furnished with 19th century antiques, with satellite TV (29' flat screen). The 3 bright bedrooms are on the 1st floor just like the bathroom (shower + bathtub). You will love the excellent mattresses.
In front of the house, at the table, you will enjoy the panoramic view on the countryside. Your kids have plenty of space to play here (the property is more than 4ha!).
In the evenings, after a day full of experiences you will enjoy a comfortable BBQ with a good bottle of wine in front of the house. The sunsets are marvelous there!
Here you'll find all you wish for during your holiday:
• A spacious, fully-equipped holiday house on a 4ha private property, i.e.
• 4ha playground for your kids
• A large pool (pleasant, healthy salt water instead of chlorine) that can neither be heard nor seen from the apartment
• Optional breakfast (on demand)
• World-famous historical sights only ± 1 hour away (Carcassonne, Toulouse, Albi, Canal du Midi…)
• All around only nature, twittering birds and apart from the: quiet
• Your kids can ride our pony
• Extensive leasure and sports facilities in the surroundings (see our homepage: chateau-de-dournes.fr)
Are you missing anything? Please ask us! Maybe we have just forgot to mention it. ;-)

Once in a while we come across one of these drop-out stories – on TV, in Books, newspapers and magazines: Some make us smile, others arouse our admiration, some head-shaking…
We too not only dared to dream but also to realize our dream. We, i.e. Eva-Maria Wildi, graduated coach (MSc, ICF) and business consultant, and Hanspeter Rosenlechner, more than ¼ of a century teacher in a private school and responsible for organization development there. During the years that we lived together it turned out clearly that this was not the model of life that we wanted to continue until the end of our professional lives. So we decided to start up again. We bought a little château in the south of France, in the center of the city triangle Toulouse - Albi - Carcassonne, moved here from Austria, and now we offer B&B and holiday apartments in a marvelous, classy ambience.
Mr. Hanspeter Rosenlechner purchased this house in 2013
The 'Midi': This is sun, warmth, sociability, hospitality, zest for life. Here life is what matters. On the real estate market our Château de Dournes was the most beautiful and the most fitting object available for our plans.
For anyone who is looking for quiet and relaxation under the southern sun, for lots of space for the kids and for past and present culture, this is just the place for you. In summer, Carcassonne, Albi and Toulouse not only offer to admire their great history but also numerous cultural highlights. They can all be reached in about an hour.
The Montagne Noire (the Black Mountains) invites nature lovers to hiking, biking, paragliding…
Kids also will love the place: There is plenty of room to frolic in the park, a pool, a swing, a slack line, a foosball table, table tennis… and there are horses, including Géraldine, our pony!
A la fin du séjour, le preneur se doit de laisser la propriété dans les mêmes conditions que celles dans lesquelles il l’a trouvée. Le gîte est à balayer; la cuisine – inclus la vaisselle et les couverts – doivent être propres. Le réfrigérateur est à vider. Tous déchets sont à éliminer. Dans le cas où un nettoyage supplémentaire serait nécessaire, le bailleur pourra en demander le règlement au preneur, à sa seule discrétion.
