The History of Château de Limatge

Constructed around 1840 as a hunting pavilion, it was owned for several decades by the Earl of Lastours.  Named Château de ‘Limatge’ (Catalan spelling for L’image), its architect was said to have taken inspiration from ‘Château de Rueil Malmaison’ and the neoclassical Empire style from the 19th Century.  Nestled in the midst of the Montagne Noire and set in extensive grounds the property affords its inhabitants total privacy and quiet.

The House

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors each containing approximately 220 m2 (Total 660 m2). Restoration of the property has taken place over the past several years, resulting in a large but very comfortable and practical country home.  The restoration and decoration has been completed to an exceptionally high standard while fully respecting the period of the property, incorporating many of the original features seamlessly alongside some more contemporary elements.
