Chateau Bourrel is just on the outskirts of the small French town of Quillan two minutes walk into town.
It was built in 1923 by a renowned and very prestigious hat maker Jean Bourrel, he designed and fashioned hats for and Kings, Queens and celebrities all across Europe. Later he became the major industrialist of the area and many Avenue’s and buildings in Quillan have his name ascribed to them.
This house faces due south and so gets the sun all day and is positioned to take in one of the most breathtaking views of the hills and mountains of Quillan. The river Aude runs along side the large and beautiful gardens and in the quiet of the night the gentle soothing sound of the river can be heard.
The house has been restored and improved with wooden floors and beautiful décor, keeping some of the most poignant features of the original build.
