Castelnau de Montmiral also has a pharmacy, post office, hairdresser, and doctor's surgery. Two painting schools are based in the village, as the architecture and countryside offer ample inspiration for artists. The village is also home to a beautiful church, Notre-Dame-de-L'Assomption, which is home to the 14th century Cross of the Counts of Armangac, studded with 310 jewels. Our house also has a newly renovated separate studio flat with kitchen and bath suitable for a couple or a single traveler. This flat can be rented by itself or in addition to the main house.
