Stay in a Sixteenth Century French Château.


The Château St-Ferriol is a sixteenth century French castle (château fort) in the South of France. It is available for letting by the week from June to September each year.

The château, listed (“inscrit”) by the French Ministry of Culture, was built as a defensive fortress in the sixteenth century, and comprehensively restructured around the year 1600 to a comfortable spacious Renaissance residence.

The castle had been undergoing renovations and part of it is now available for vacation lettings. This part is self-contained and comprises:

The castle is situated at the highest point of the small sleepy village of St-Ferriol, next to its medieval church. It benefits from spectacular views. It lies in historic Languedoc, now part of the Occitanie region, in the heart of Cathar Country, famous for its history, architecture, natural features, wildlife, climate, food and wine. It lies within walking distance of Rennes-le-Château, and an hour’s drive from the Mediterranean coast, Perpignan, Carcassonne, Foix, the Pyrenees, Andorra and Spain.
