    About this property

    This graceful, Disney-style chateau was built in 1575 and has three stunningly beautiful towers with impressive turrets. Chateau Chamborigaud is set in a lovely 5 acre park in the Cevennes mountains, and enjoys the river Luech flowing lazily along its boundaries. Nimes airport is just over one hour drive away (and the drive itself is incredibly scenic!) and the train station to the Montpellier coast and Paris is only a 15 minute walk away.
    There is a substantial terrace around the chateau which is perfect for dining, and in the beautiful park-style grounds you'll find a large heated outdoor swimming pool area with cuisine d’ete, a terrace for BBQs and a changing room.
    Chateau Chamborigaud is within a couple of minute's walk of a charmingly beautiful village with adjacent tennis court (€7 p/h and a key in chateau), shopping facilities, bars and restaurants. There are also many beautiful walks and drives to enjoy in the surrounding area which is also a haven for foodies - it's renowned for its wild boar, chestnuts and mushrooms. There's more than ample parking space for everyone too.

    Good news! This property is available as a Vill’otel

    Yey! Wait… what is that?
    It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

    What’s included?
    Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

    The local village of Chamborigaud is a five minute walk, and contains three small supermarkets, a boulangerie, butcher, 3 restaurants, a tobacconist and a wine shop. There is also a wonderful market on Sunday's that should not be missed during your stay!
    There are two 18 hole golf-courses within an hour's drive towards Nimes, and you'll also find a 9 hole golf course not too far from Villefort (approximately 30 minutes' drive away). The area also has excellent trout fishing and there are several stocked lakes for children.

    The newly refurbished tennis court is only 5 minutes' walk away if you feel the need for a more intense workout. There is a key to the tennis court at the chateau. If you want to ensure you can get on you need to book a slot at the town hall or restaurant in town (€7 p/h) but most people just chance it as it is rarely used. However, be aware that someone else may come along and use it if you haven't booked it.
    The whole area is adjacent to the Cevennes National Park, which is renowned for its beautiful scenery and rivers - here you'll find an abundance of walks through unspoiled countryside. There is skiing in the Cevennes at nearby Mas de la Barque and Mont Aigaoul – ski de fond (cross country) is the most common way to enjoy the area, with a little downhill and tobogganing also available.  It's 30-40 mins drive to skiing at Mas de la Barque, and the reservoir at Villefort is 30 mins drive away and offers a huge range of outdoor activities including pedalo hiring, kayaks, sailing boats, mountaineering, canyoning and potholing.
    Flights - The chateau is one hours drive from Nimes (Garons) airport (Ryanair from Luton and East Midlands), or 1½ hours from  Montpellier (Ryanair from Stansted or Easyjet from Gatwick), or 2 hours from Marseilles (British Airways from Gatwick).
    Trains - Eurostar to Lille or Paris and then TGV to Nimes.  From Nimes either taxi or train from Nimes to Chamborigaud  (which goes on to Clermont Ferrand) – the chateau is a 15 minute walk from the train station.
    The area also has its own vineyards and free “degustations” (wine tastings) and tours can easily be arranged. The area is rich in beautiful towns with nearby Uzes and the World Heritage Site of Pont du Gard – the Roman Aquaduct is also within an hour’s drive, and is a must see if you've a passion for history!
    Ales is the nearest large town for shopping, and is situated a 20 minute drive away. It has the usual hypermarkets, ten-pin bowling, cinemas and a hospital. There is also a doctor's surgery in close proximity to the house.
    Walking – the estate is bordered by the River Luech and there are some beautiful walks along its banks straight from the chateau grounds. The nearby village of Pont de Rastel is a short walk away, and is also incredible beautiful and perfect for exploring on foot!

    "Fantastic time – phenomenal setting; rivers, lakes, cheese, chickens! Elodie is Mary Poppins! We loved our stay. Thank you"
    Anoushka ‐ 2 Sep 2018
    "What a spectacular place! We had a fantastic week."
    Hannah R ‐ 25 Aug 2018
    "An amazing holiday in a beautiful location. The chateau is stunning and the whole family had a wonderful time. Elodie and Edward were so helpful, informative and friendly."
    Sharman ‐ 18 Aug 2018
    "A fabulous stay in this fairytale Chateau! We’ve enjoyed relaxing by the amazing pool and exploring the river and plunge pools. Thank you Elodie for a delicious meal and for your help, advice and kindness. We take away many happy memories of a wonderful family holiday. We hope to return."
    Raymond ‐ 20 Jul 2018
    "This Chateau is large and easily accommodated our family group of 15. If you're looking for a stress free holiday, DO add the services of Elodie the resident property caretaker for her local knowledge and home cooked regional meals, a real treat and special."
    Peter H ‐ 17 Apr 2018
    "Fantastic! Wonderful holiday!"
    Michael W ‐ 19 Feb 2018
    "We enjoyed an wonderful week over Christmas with our large family group in this amazing Chateau. The Chateau is warm and very comfortable with all the charm of a 450 year old castle, huge fireplace, grand living rooms and turrets yet it has all the creature comforts we also expect. It is very suitable for large groups including children as some of the main bedrooms have smaller bedrooms leading off them. Plenty of bathrooms. The grounds are extensive and private. The host and her charming family live on a separate housekeeper's residence within the grounds and are there for any help and advice on the village and the region. She cooked two medieval style feasts for us during our stay (catering for 16 people) which were very memorable. There are a number of lovely villages and towns within 1 hour drive but we had just as much fun hanging around the Chateau and local the walks. The Chateau would be even better in the summer months when the large pool and outdoor terraces could be utilised. I have no hesitation in giving this Chateau a 5 star recommendation!"

    "The journey to the villa from Avignon winds up the mountains, through small villages with treelined views across the valleys. The Chateau is a five minute walk from a typical, French village, with a butcher, two bakers, two convenience stores, small playground and a few cafes. The drive down dirt road to the Chateau gives the right amount of mystery and then you see the building in all its glory, nestled between the trees and two acres of grass (bring a football, cricket stumps or rounders bat). Our four year old ran across the lawn, past the fountain with a newt and goldfish to the electric fence (needed to be there to keep the wild boars from entering during late August only), and then to the river, where he spent hours playing in the stream - this is not for swimming at this point. The truly amazing married housekeepers Elodie (French) and Edward (English) made sure that every request was answered promptly, showed us where there was a secret plunge pool, provided cider (provided by his own fair hands) and generally ensured that this week between 17 members of my family (aged 4 to 81) was one that will live in our memories as an extraordinary moment in time. The Chateau, the interior design, the bedrooms and all that one would expect was first class. We went canyoning (great fun), went swimming in the nearby lake, went tree top climbing (not for the faint hearted) and enjoyed evenings on the terrace with great food and stunning wines. We have to congratulate the owners for putting love and life back into this building. Thank you."
