Chateau Le Quille

The charming owners Nico and Rachel discovered Quille 25 years ago, perched dramatically on a rock in the middle of the wooded foothills of the Pyrenees, encircled on three sides by the river below. They fell in love and spent a long time restoring it. The property is tranquil and secluded, set in 22 acres of private grounds, yet it is only 45 minutes from Carcassonne airport and an hour and a quarter from Toulouse. The surrounding area is famous for its beauty, its Cathar castles and historic legacy. While the property is an imposing structure dating from the 18th century, inside the rooms are comfortable and homely. There is a separate private ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Sheltered by wooded foothills but looking out to the Pyrenees a few miles to the south, the Château lies on a rock cliff which falls sheer to the River Touyre below. The river runs almost 360° around the rock, creating a "presqu'île" of the property and its garden. Although secluded, local towns Mirepoix and Lavelanet are both within 15 minutes. The surrounding area is famous for its beauty, its architecture and its Cathar history. All the Cathar castles (Montségur, Roquefixade, Peyrepetuse, Puilaurens, Quillan...) are within an hour or so. Plenty of walking, riding, skiing is available nearby, there is lake sailing 10 minutes away and the coast is an hour's drive. Shopping is in Mirepoix, about 10-15 minutes away. Toulouse is an hour away and has regular daily flights from Heathrow, Gatwick, Paris, Nice and most major European cities. Ryanair flies daily from Stansted to Carcassonne, which is 40 minutes from the house. Queille is also accessible from Montpellier (2 hours), Perpignan (75 minutes), Girona and Barcelona (2-3 hours).
