The Bastide of Montlaur

AN HISTORIC CASTLE IN LANGUEDOC

 

A place of charm and history, the castle of Montlaur was owned  by Edouard Niermans, the famous architect of the "Café Society"  to whom we owe many beautiful buildings... the Hotel Negresco   in Nice, the Hotel du Palais in Biarritz, the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, as well as the Moulin Rouge, the Folies Bergères, the Casino de Paris, the Elysée Montmartre in Paris... Edouard Niermans is considered one of the most important architects of the "Belle Epoque" in France.

 

 

Edouard was a passionate winegrower and cultivated a vast vineyard at the time known as Domaine de Montlaur. He spent his final years in Montlaur where he died on October 19th, 1928. The estate is now owned by his grandchildren.
