Domaine de Montlaur | Apartments in the South of France

Lose yourself in 2 hectares of romantic gardens

The charming Domaine de Montlaur estate is idyllically situated in the Languedoc region of the South of France. Conveniently located in the village of Montlaur, the local butcher, grocer, beekeeper, and organic market (every Tuesday) are only a short stroll away. Domaine de Montlaur is the cherished home of a distinguished French family, a member of which (or, alternatively, the property manager) is always on hand to show you around and provide tips on interesting local excursions.

The country estate offers two delightful holiday apartments for rent - La Bastide, an elegant apartment for 2-4 people and Pavilion, a modern apartment for 4 people. They both present the unique opportunity of holidaying in a historical country home, with plenty of seclusion and a private patio/garden. The interiors vary greatly - La Bastide is elegant and classic, whilst Pavilion is modern and minimalist. The apartments are tastefully furnished and the beds made up with beautiful white bed linen ... indeed, both have been lavished with considerable love and attention.

The castle garden is a lush, sprawling park of some 2 hectares, brimming with trees, shrubs, plants and flowers. There’s also a shared 6x12-metre swimming pool furnished with sunbeds, outdoor seating and hammocks for the ultimate in rest and relaxation. All in all, truly special holiday accommodation in a lively French village, close to a number of beautiful cities and only an hour's drive from the Mediterranean Sea.

Very nice holiday home in a charming, quiet village. We enjoyed our stay very much thanks to the private garden and good bedrooms that can be completely darkened. The spacious and well-equipped kitchen is a big plus. Only downside was that we could not use the pool due to maintenance on the hottest days.
