A shaded two-hectare park, a spectacular avenue of plane trees, sheltered by high walls, the Domaine de Montlaur seems to live out of time. Former property of Edouard Niermans, the famous architect of the Belle Epoque, this place of memory is an invitation to the sweetness of life in cathar country.
The spirit of the place... An Italian-style park, a spectacular avenue of oriental platanes trees, a few kilometers from the sea, the Cathar castles, the abbeys of Lagrasse and Fonftroide, the DOMAINE DE MONTLAUR seems to live on the bangs of the world. Owned by the same family for nearly a century, this timeless place welcomes tourists in residence.
A very beautiful watercolor of our Italian host Filippo, the avenue of platanes trees and the castle seen by the painter Christian Bastian. The park of the DOMAINE DE MONTLAUR is an invitation to painting and artistic creation.
Vineyards, scrubland, rivers, ruins of Cathar fortress, endless beech, chestnut and pine forests, and further on the see, the salt marshes of Gruissan ... 27 kilometers from Carcassonne, the Domaine de Montlaur lives in a wild and preserved landscape of legends behind the mountain of Alaric where the Alaric II king is said to be buried with the famous Jérusalem treasure.
An extraordinary country to discover along the Cathar paths and the Roman roads.
