Why Martine Ecal-Besse chose Saint-Chinian area

The oldest part of the castle dates from the twelfth century. My family owned the castle since 1764. In 2005, we came to live with my husband in the castle that we have completely renovated while retaining the family furniture so that it keeps its soul and its charm.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This castle is a beautiful authentic house full of charm, off the beaten track. It combines calm, comfort and tradition. The village of Agel is a very pretty village in the heart of a region of vineyards and tourist sites Cathars.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife, family and some friends stayed for one week at Chateau d'Agel in June 2016.

Everything about our stay surpassed expectations and we truly hope to visit it again some day in the future.

The owners Martine and Jean-Marie are the most pleasant and helpful hosts you could wish for, without being overbearing or intrusive.

Chateau d'Agel also has its own wine label, which is reasonably priced and very good quality.
