Château Marteret is a fairly tale like, luxury chateau for rent in the heart of Gascony, South West France, near to both Bordeaux and the foothills of the Pyrenees. It has eight bedrooms and can sleep up to fourteen people very comfortably. The beautifully renovated interiors are minimalist and chic, and maintain loads of historical charm.
Surrounding the chateau there are over 400 acres of estate to be explored which include orchards, woodland, meadows, a lake and a small herd of Meren horses.
The chateau has a total of six spacious double bedrooms and one twin. It also has five very nice bathrooms some with romantic bath tubs, an elegant, French country style kitchen (catering services can also be arranged though if you don’t feel like cooking), dining room, and lounges and sitting areas with comfortable seating and stylish furniture. Check out all the details on the booking page here. (Note though that there is a minimum stay of 4 nights.)
The chateau itself is undoubtedly beautiful and atmospheric but for many the estate’s private grounds make a stay there extra special. They cover nearly 450 acres in total and you can go swimming and sailing (there is a small boat there to use) in the large lake, sunbathe on its sandy shore, wander for hours around the meadow fields, orchards and woodland, go wildlife spotting, have a picnic or just soak up the utter silence and tranquility.
The estate has a small herd of lovely Meren horses, a famously calm and agreeable breed, and you can also take them for rides if you’d like and/or if you are not an experienced rider, arrange guided treks with the help of the chateau owners. For further sport the chateau also comes equipped with a trampoline, table tennis and archery and boules courts.
As well as the above mentioned catering services if required you can also arrange daily maid services for your stay at Château Marteret.
The Chateau is located in the Department of Gers, formerly known as Gascony, one of France’s least populated regions and one which offers a lovely feeling of being off the beaten track. It is a deeply rural place with miles and miles of farmland and woodland, small, quaint villages and winding roads leading on towards the foothills of the Pyrenees to the south.
The nearest large town is Auch, the ancient capital of Gascony, about twenty minutes away by car. The journey from Toulouse should take around an hour, and the journey from Bordeaux around two.
(Note: There is a minimum stay of 4 nights)
