The Site

Built in 1876, it is the principal property of the Hamlet of Mazères, known locally as the "The Château". It was the principle employer of the village inhabitants prior to World War II. Originally the property had about 300 hectares and was mainly devoted to wine growing. Today the site is 1.5 hectares, situated just next to the medieval church Saint Jean Baptiste. It is rumoured that the house was built upon an old Priory dating back to the The Knights Templers Saint Jean de Jérusalem, with three mills under its supervision. Sadly we have not been able to verify the story as yet, but no smoke without fire…

Just looking at the map the place could seem a bit lonely, but instead it was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Lovely scenery and lovely hosts who will do all they can to make you feel at home. Access to the pool...

About the neighborhood
Lying almost exactly on the Greenwich Meridian Line, Mazères is a hamlet of some 15 inhabited houses with a most unusual and magnificent fortified church - Saint Jean Baptiste de Mazères - classified as a Historical Monument.

An excursion in either of these directions could be worth while. The church also boasts its own stone sarcophagus with the the relics of Saint Liberata. This young saint, virgin and martyr was decapitated in the woods near by in the fifth century, as was her sister Quitterie who is being worsh... more
