A majestic 13th century Cathar castle in 10 acres of grounds with a private swimming pool.


The imposing chateau retains its original spirit of an ancient medieval castle, but modernised to create a family home. It has been beautifully decorated by the current artist-owner and her family, creating a grand but comfortable setting for a holiday, family or company event.

Chateau la Commanderie is just 15 minutes from the medieval bastide of Mirepoix, 45 minutes from historic Carcassonne and the modern metropolis of Toulouse and their airports.

An incredible experience. Rent this castle just for you!


The castle sleeps up to 29 guests: 21 people can be accommodated in the main building in ten double/twin bedrooms, and 8 people in four double/twin rooms in an independent cottage on the grounds.

There are grand reception rooms, including the Knights’ Hall, a large library for dining or events; the billiard room; modern kitchens and bathrooms all surrounded by manicured gardens with a swimming pool.


Our castle accommodation is ideal for holidays, family get-togethers, special events, seminars or corporate meetings. Catering can be arranged at additional cost through our network of private chefs and caterers who specialise in weddings and larger celebrations or events.

The whole castle and cottage are available year-round for a weekend, week or a longer stay. We can offer other configurations to suit your needs, ie: whole ground floor for 10 people, ground floor plus cottage for 19 people, or gardens only. We can create special packages for you, please contact us.
