My husband and I stayed at Chateau Brametourte on a tour of Southern France. We happened upon the chateau by chance and it had to have been fate! Alison and Paul make you feel at home immediatly...but what a home! The beautiful stone walls, the flickering firelight, the cosy atmosphere belies how large this home is! We stayed in the Templar Suite which has arrow slit windows, stone walls, an immense fireplace, gorgeous antiques and a modern shower room. The bed was comfy and all I wanted to do was stay there pretending to be a queen for the day! Outside is a terrace overlooking the fabulous french landscape where we sampled some of the local wines from Paul's cellar.
I have already recommended the chateau to friends for this year and we shall go back with some of them in a different month this year. An absolute treat if you are in the area, and a must-see part of France that is still quite unknown to the english.
