The château's life began in 1530 when it was built by the Montpezat family, lords of Tajan and Saint Martory. Centuries later, in 1860, architect Victor Ruprich-Robert, who was also the General Inspector of Historical Monuments, undertook renovation of the château at the request of the new owner, the Prince of Berghes. It was quite recently in 1998 when the current owners purchased the château and fully renovated it to ensure total comfort and high standards for themselves and their guests.
Château de Saint Martory, with its classic entry gate in the village of Saint Martory, is a landmark listed with ISMH (the Inventaire Supplémentaire des Monuments Historiques) and is just 45 minutes from the lively city of Toulouse. This is a jewel of a château located in a beautiful forested region of southwest France and directly on the banks of the River Garonne. Rented in its entirety or for bed and breakfast accommodations, it is ideally suited to families and friends who want to spend a holiday to the manor born! In additional to the beautiful en suite guest rooms in the château overlooking the park or river and taking in the distant views, the château also offers two dining rooms, an office, billiard room, formal salon, summer kitchen and dining area. The completely renovated farmhouse with three bedrooms and two bathrooms can be rented by the week or with the château rental.
