Château Mézard

Holiday château in France

An immaculately restored 13th century château set in 42 acres of private grounds.

Beautiful countryside setting with far-reaching, panoramic views.

As featured in THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 HOLIDAYS TO FRANCE 2013; "It’s impossible not to smile in the Gers. At the heart of Gascony, this land is green and gentle, with hills, rivers, armagnac, ducks, arcaded village squares and solid people ambling a couple of hours behind mainstream France. Given the feudal feel, a château fits the frame. Few are more sumptuous than the Château Mézard, near Condom, which sleeps 13. Surrounded by 42 acres, it’s the sort of place ordinary mortals pay to look round, not stay in."
