This prestigious property is located in this beautiful region of Occitania, in the heart of the Pays de Cocagne, famous for its gentle way of life and its land of plenty.
This feudal castle dating from the 13th century, modified in the 18th century, has been entirely renovated. The current owners, who are passionate about history and architecture, have given this place steeped in history all its letters of nobility, by restoring it entirely and by preserving and sublimating its style and characteristics. This restoration represented a colossal task, and today this property is a real jewel with a rare and sought-after architecture. The present castle has kept a feudal character which reminds us of the past importance of this ancient fortress of the Viscounty of Lautrec, a part of which is registered in the supplementary inventory of Historic Monuments. This registration can allow you to benefit from certain tax advantages. ASK FOR OUR EXTERIOR VIDEO TOUR...

We will now give a more detailed description of this unique property. You will understand that we will not be able to describe everything, more photos will of course be sent to you on request.
Once you have climbed the outside stairs and passed through the fortified gate, you will be delighted to discover an imposing central park with trees, a well and a 5x10 heated swimming pool. All around are the living quarters. First of all, the main house and its 550m2, to reach it we take a massive stone staircase which leads us to an entrance or antechamber sublimated by an imposing billiard table and paintings of master on the wall.
Then, the day part is composed of a dining room, living room, kitchen and back kitchen, office and reception hall. A circular terrace with a panoramic view allows you to dominate the plain like a watchtower and take full advantage of the sun. Then comes the night area with its 5 bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. Absolutely everything here has been thought out and renovated with luxury and quality in mind while preserving the style. The parquet floors are sparkling, the oak woodwork and double glazing, lighting, carpets and incredible furniture (which could be purchased when the time comes). The heating is provided by a recent oil-fired boiler, and all the roofs of the living areas, including the gîtes, have recently been redone in turn.
Let us return to the ground floor which shelters a sumptuous room of seminar of 80m2 with its kitchen and very close a true medieval kitchen and its stay for 75m2. These rooms are also equipped with toilets and are perfectly adapted to the reception.
We cross the park and return to the first gîte of 40m2, perfectly equipped and equipped with reversible air conditioning. Mezzanine, kitchen, living room, shower room, everything is provided here and with an irreproachable quality of renovation. This gite is, as you can understand, in great demand for rental due to its spectacular location.
Another gite of 140m2 in the entrance of the castle enclosure benefits from a living room of 100m2 with a mezzanine as well as 3 beautiful bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is a real flat with a top of the range finish, with reversible air-conditioning, which is also in great demand.
We can also mention the presence of a real wine cellar, towers fitted out for reception, garage of 100m2, boiler room, laundry cellars, henhouse.... The list is long!
This exceptional property is now waiting for a new owner who will be able to take up the torch with just as much passion and love for this fabulous historical heritage.
Everything is absolutely ready to live in!
Location: Vénès, small commune in the west of the Tarn department; in the Occitanie region and in the heart of the Pays de Cocagne. At the foot of the Montagne Noire, and close to the plains of the Vauréen and the Puylaurens hills, where on a clear day the spectacle of the snow-covered Pyrenees is grandiose, the Pays de Cocagne has a rich heritage.
If in the Tarn, the Pays de Cocagne is definitely associated with the west of the department and the 6 communities of communes united under its banner, one should not forget the generic term which in the imagination of European civilisation means land of plenty, a quasi paradise land where the heavens had been particularly generous.
If there is a region in the Tarn where the earth is generous, it is here, in these plains with fat and fertile clays, where cereals blossom and ripen under a blazing sun. There where vineyards and orchards, saffron and woad, are fulfilled. Where people find peace, well-being and prosperity.
Nearby: a multi-service shop (Vival) with a bread store. 6 km away: Réalmont with all shops and services: regional market on Wednesday morning. Village of Lautrec classified as "Most beautiful village in France": Lautrec Garlic Festival in August. Windmill dominating the village. Narrow and typical streets.
8 km : Base Aquaval de Lautrec : aquatic relaxation area with lagoon pool, slides, bar, picnic area, paddling pools for the little ones.
The Tarn department will welcome you and you will discover and adopt its culture of good living anchored in its Occitan roots. You will also enjoy this department with its 1000 faces and its emblematic museums, such as the Toulouse Lautrec Museum in Albi, Goya in Castres and Dom Robert in Sorèze.
The future motorway from Castres to Toulouse will allow you to easily reach the international airport of Toulouse, the one of Carcassonne is located at an almost equivalent distance. Castres has its own commercial and business airport (internal), with 3 daily flights to Paris.
