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.

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…

The Family Bakker were certainly a joy to have and they made the most out of our area and amenities. They would always be welcome back anytime and it would be to our pleasure.

About the neighbourhood
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. During the first part of the 12th century, the sections above the entrance and the chevet inside the church were carved by some of the best sculptors of the time who had already worked on the Saint Semin Basilica in Toulouse, the Abbey in Saint Sever in the Landes, and in Spain. 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
