Renovated Apartment in 12th Century Chateau de Boussagues

The 700 sq ft apartment will sleep 2 people only. The 7.3 x 3.7 metre swimming pool is shared with one other apartment and a private 600 sq ft terrace. We live on the premises and will be only too happy to help you make the most of your stay with us. If you want to get away from the stress of everyday life, this could be the place for you. There is virtually no traffic in the village, save the odd tractor. We are sorry, but we do not allow children under 12 years old. The tower apartment is to the East of the Chateau and was added to the original building in the 16th century. The large bedroom is situated in the tower and has an exposed stone wall with a meutrier window (arrow slit), this would have been the exterior of the 12th century building. The château stands above the village of Boussagues and the view down the valley over the rooftops and across the surrounding countryside and is quite breathtaking.

Guest comments
‘We come to France every year and we have voted your lovely Chateau the best accommodation yet, everything has been superb.’

‘For 10 years I have been visiting castle ruins in Scotland and thinking put a roof on this and I could definitely live here. This is the first time that I have managed to do so. You have both created a magical place here. Not only does it have such amazing character and beauty, it also has a friendly and kind spirit – all thanks to both of you. I have loved staying here, it has done my Princess complex a world of good.’

‘Thanks guys, for a wonderful week and some wonderful company’

‘lost for words to describe this last week in Boussagues, magnificent area, magnificent castle and magnificent hosts’.

“Did not know what to expect but found a peaceful,tranquil and extremely impressive base to stage our exploration of this varied and beautiful part of France. We have enjoyed our week here very much and will return!!”
