“Wonderful. Best accommodation while in France”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

We had the Templar Suite which was a huge room renovated beautifully, in keeping with the era. Modern bathroom, sympathetic to the medieval theme. We even had arrow slits in the room! This was the accommodation highlight of our trip through France. Highly recommended. Lovely opening the doors to your room onto the little terrace where you can have breakfast, overlooking the lovely little valley. I just wished we were able to have stayed longer. They also have a pool with a view too. Sigh. Wish I was back there. And a fantastic price at 80Euro/night. Breakfast was lovely sitting on the terrace, however the croissants were slightly stale. The rest of the breakfast was lovely. The templar suite is next to the kitchen which didn't bother us at all. We didn't hear them getting the breakfast ready at all. We did have a little bit of trouble finding the place (however, we didn't ask for directions beforehand, we just stuck the address into the GPS). We asked a couple on a farm nearby (who didn't speak any english, and we didn't speak any french, and they were so patient and lovely to us) who knew where it was, and even drove us there (well, we followed them in their car). So perhaps clarify directions before arriving. There was I believe, signs, however our GPS took us the backwater way (not just here, but throughout France, which made for an interesting trip!), not along the main roads. But WOW. I am so thrilled we found this accommodation. Oh, also, room was very clean and the bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: I liked the Templar Suite for it's price and that it opened onto the terrace. The other rooms a...

The Chateau is in the process of being restored ... or perhaps rescued is a better word ... and the work that has been done is wonderful, if a little over the top in spots (we actually loved that feature). Our room (Templar Suite) was beautiful and HUGE and comfortable. Taller people, watch your head going between rooms .. clonking your noggin on ancient stone leaves a mark. Also watch your feet lest you trip over unexpected changes in floor levels. Liz was very nice and welcoming, as was volunteer Annie. We had a pleasant tour of the place, with commentary and a delicious ghost story from our hostess. Breakfast left something to be desired but there was plenty of it. The Tarn area is gorgeous. We enjoyed our stay despite the rain, the holiday closures of everything, and the slight feeling that we were trespassing in someone else's home.

I can only reiterate what other reviewers have written; the B&B Chateau de Bramtourte was a highlight of our recent holiday in France. The chateau has a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside, we were lucky enough to be able to see the far off snow covered peaks of the Pyrenees. The chateau has been lovingly restored and retains the feel of a medieval castle but has the luxury of en-suites and comfortable beds. Our hostess Liz was very generous with her time, a fabulous place, our only regret was not having the time to stay longer.

Chateau de Brametourte was one of the highlights of our holiday. Hidden away in an exquisite part of the French countryside, where the tranquillity is disturbed only by the free range chickens, this is a splendid base for exploring Albi, or Toulouse, or to simply relax. From the outside, one might conclude that the building has seen better times. But on closer inspection it is obviously being lovingly restored. It oozes authenticity and atmosphere, with it spiral staircases and arrow slits and hidden passages. We had the "gothic suite", which was not so much a room as an entire wing. Our rooms were sumptuous and beautifully appointed. One of the decorations we recognised as a reproduction of a marble statue we had seen only days before in the Louvre. We were in the region to see Albi and the Gorge du Tarn and thoroughly enjoyed both. But in spite of these attractions, what made this stay so special was the reception we received from Liz. We were greeted with an enthusiastic welcome from the minute we knocked on the door, and instantly became one of the family. When the opportunity arose to stay an extra night we grabbed it and only wished there could have been more. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were sorry to leave. Fabulous!!

We stayed here in August 2011 for a week with our three children. Brametourte is a converted castle, beautifully restored. Our rooms were huge and comfortable, with furnishings in keeping with the style of the building, but modern bathrooms. Our hosts were delightful and accommodating and couldn't have been more welcoming. The breakfasts were great, and so were the dinners we had there. The pool area too is beautiful, and very peaceful. We would thoroughly recommend this.

This has to be the finest B&B we've ever stayed in, wow, wow, wow, 10/10! The website & photographs do not do this amazing chateau justice, every aspect of this property is just wonderful. The property is located high up in the Lautrec hills with fine uninterrupted views for miles over the Tarn, the new pool is positioned to perfection to make the most of the panorama. The 900 year old building has been sympathetically restored to an exceptional standard by Alison & Paul. The spacious interiors are beautiful too, exposed wooden beams, marble floors, antique floorboards, marble baths, stunning antiques & paintings. Most historic house B&Bs & hotels in France are tired & let down by cheap decor/repro furnishings, or have been over modernised, this is most definitely not the case at Chateau Bramatourte. We were surprised at how very reasonable their room rates were, even if they doubled their prices it would be worth every penny.

Liz was the most welcoming host during our 3 night stay, cleanliness was very good everywhere. We were also invited to use the main kitchen to prepare meals & the upstairs lounge to relax. Most of the time we realaxed by the pool, and took our meals outdoors in the lovely gardens to enjoy the magical views.

If staying here we strongly recommend a day trip to the medieval hill top village of Cordes-sur-Ciel 10/10, the most beautiful & perfectly preserved medieval village, great boutique shops & restaurants. If flying in to Carcassone, the old city centre is well worth a visit, 9/10. We also visited the historic city of Albi, lots of narrow streets & great shops/restaurants, 8/10.

We hope to return very soon,

Mark & Laurie

Having travelled for 4 weeks around France from Australia, Brametourte was the most memorable. The chateau was everything we had hoped for and more having been beautifully restored and furnished throughout with antique furniture.. The scenery from the pool area is absolutely fabulous right across to the Pyrenees. The hosts and the staff at Brametourte made our stay even better and made us feel like part of the family. We would definitle recommend the chateau and would love to come back. The lovely village of Latrec was a 30min walk away along some sun flowere fields. We didn't want to leave.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Gothic room and absolutely loved it.
