“Far exceeded our high expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We rented the Chateau for a week for a family gathering to mark a special occasion. The reviews and web site seemed too good to be true... In retrospect they do not adequately relay the wonderful nature of this special place. The grounds are beautiful and the Chateau itself is a perfect combination of modern amenities and timeless charm. Thirteen of us were more than comfortable.The town is small but the residents are welcoming. It is a great spot from which to explore this beautiful region. The local restaurants are great and reasonable (don't expect Michelin, just good local products prepared well).
Finally, I can't say enough about hosts Martine and Jean-Marie. They are at once helpful yet unobtrusive. We felt like we were staying with old friends. Be sure to ask Martine to arrange a tour and tasting at the Vinyard, a special experience.
Just go here.... you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: The suite at the top of the castle is the most charming to me, but be prepared for a climb up an anc...

At least 15 of us have stayed at the Chateau for a week, two different times. It's truly like a home away from home. Martine and Jean-Pierre are gracious hosts. We met many of the locals, including the Backhouses-he's a great photographer and she does stunning jewelry. The wine of Chateau d'Agel is pretty wonderful, too. The rooms are more than spacious and the kitchen is well-equipped. The location is great for day trips to some wonderful places: Bezier, Narbonne, Collioure, Pesanas, etc. A highlight was a wonderful concert at the church across the street the night we arrived. One of those serendipity moments. Another time, during an art event, we were invited to a wine, hors d'oeuves and concert there at the chateau and got a private concert inside later. Wonderful!

We spend 1 night in this authentic french castle. We received a warm welcome by Martine and Jen-Pierre. What a great place to stay.Rooms as you would expect them to be in a castle with all modern amenities including Wifi at hand. Great effort has been put into this rare and special place.An ideal location for a stay with friends and family. You can rent the entire chateau and have the buildings, park and pool all to yourselves. Excellent location for excursions in the Minervois area, the castle is located just a few kilometers north of Bize-Minervois and Minerve, between Beziers and Carcassonne. We stayed on a B&B basis. Certainly an experience of a lifetime.

Our weekend at Chateau D'Agel with Peter and Sally was the most amazing experience. The chateau is beautiful, authentic, luxurious, each room is different, tastfully decorated in keeping with the amazing Chateau. There were 5 couples and we were celebrating a friends 30th birthday, and Sally had put some special balloons out on the chateau gates and in the bedroom of the birthday boy, a special thoughful touch, we got settled and were then greated with a glass of Rose and a lunch prepared by Peter the Chef, fit for a king (of a Chateau!) and from then on the food and wine and hospitality never ceased to impress.

Continental breakfasts of croisants from the local bakery, fresh in season fruit, tehn spiced quail for lunch, filet mignon of porc for dinner, amazing deserts... and then the cheeses, fabulous french cheeses, each with a story from Peter about how they are made, their history, it was fantastic. Peter's knowledge of the local wine is emense, he made a point of explaining each of the wine's we were drinking with the meals (the ingredients of which are locally sourced often cooked with herbs grown within the Chateau gardens), and how they paired with the foods we were eating. Afternoons were spent playing boule in front of the magnificent chateau, swimmimg in the pool, sunning ourselves with a glass of Pimms....

Needless to say I can fully recommend a stay at Chateau D'Agel catered for by Peter and Sally, I have stayed in many hotels across Europe and beyond and eaten in Mitchelin starred restaurants and their hospitality, their attention to detail is second to none and I cannot recommend a stay with them highly enough, and I can't wait to go back!

  • Liked — It's authenticity yet classiness
