At the foot of the Pyrénées, surrounded by lakes, forests and stunning scenery, you will find the idyllic Château de RHODES. A beautiful home which is perfect for all generations, it’s the ideal place to relax and unwind, yet it offers an impressive array of activities and beautiful towns within a short drive. Dating back to the 18th century, when it was re-built after the French Revolution, the château is full of character with 18th and 19th century antiques, beautiful traditional furnishings and Persian rugs. The complete restoration has been a labour of love for its owners who have spent years updating and restoring the home to a fine standard, creating a historical and magical ambience. Walk up the stately steps into the welcoming lounge and you will immediately notice the warm and classical surroundings of this wonderful holiday home. Decorated with traditional furnishings and elegant French style with warm tones, the 14 bedrooms, eleven of which are en-suite, include two master doubles at the front with glorious views of the parkland and three interconnecting rooms ideal for families with young children. Explore the house and you’ll also find a cinema room, library, a quirky and fun games room in addition to an antique billiards table, plus plenty of space to kick back and relax on the sumptuous sofas. A fitness room and sauna have recently been added to the amazing list of amenities across the home. Daily breakfasts can be arranged as well as your own chef to prepare you an unforgettable feast, perfect for the wonderful terrace dining room where up to thirty guests can come together for a convivial meal overlooking the château’s spectacular gardens. As well as a characterful château kitchen with a magnificent log-burning fire, there is an impressive professional kitchen with all the equipment a keen cook could wish for. You could spend all day in the twenty acre parkland, sun-bathing by the heated swimming pool with the view of the Pyrénées, finding a shady spot under one of the many ancient trees, exploring by the streams or listening to the peaceful flow of the river that runs through the grounds. Have a lazy game of pétanque, cycle around on one of the château’s five bikes or play tennis on the fabulous tennis court which is of a professional standard. There is a delightful walking path encircling the house and within 500m keen cyclists can join a well-known trail of 40km through glorious landscapes. Set in the heart of the Natural Regional Park of the Ariège Pyrénées, outdoor activities such as cycling, swimming, kayaking, fishing and horse-riding are in abundance amongst its lakes, mountains and forests. There are also many beautiful villages and towns to discover such as Foix (20km) with its medieval castle perched on a hill or St. Lizier (25km), one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages with UNESCO World Heritage status. The nearest village to the château, about 5 minutes by car, dates back to medieval times and has a couple of small supermarkets, a bakery, butchers as well as a tourist office. Whether a family re-union or a special holiday with friends, Château de RHODES is a unique and peaceful retreat in a very special setting in this glorious part of southern France.
