Chateau Barayre

The buildings of Chateau Barayre are set around a private courtyard with herb garden where you can enjoy the last sunshine until late evening. The castle is surrounded by a large park garden with swimming pool and various terraces. The driveway with impressive old plane trees brings you under the tower. The atmosphere of earlier centuries is still present everywhere, gaps, thick walls, high chic spaces, the tower with a magnificent view.

Chateau Barayre dates from the 12th century, the heyday of this region when the front line between the French and the English battalions lay right here during the 100-year war. In 1204, then Pope Clement de IV even spent a few nights at Chateau Barayre! The picturesque bastide towns and many castles also date from that time. The region is also called the Tuscany of France; with a romantic rolling landscape with rich nature. There are various fantastic routes for hiking and MTB straight from our terrains. It is the region of the good life, with a long spring and autumn, no less than 13 AOC wines and the organic/bio region of France.
