This is a Templar castle and is atmospheric and very interesting. It has been lovingly restored over a number of years and is well worth a visit if you are driving near Albi and want to know more of the history of the Languedoc.

This was one of the best tours we have had. An excellent hour with a lovely guide who had a great knowledge of the Chateau de Mauriac and the artist/ owner. Recommend this highly!

This chateau is worth a visit - it has been rstored by it's owner - an artist - who has taken almost half a century to do the work. It is an excellent place to spend an hour or two on a guided tour.

Difficult to explain, but a labour of love by a talented artist. Very quirky and family friendly. The ceilings alone are worth seeing.
