Very Good

“A fantastic castle”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2015

This is really a “Castle” and you will not be disappointed. It is better than you could imagine. The castle is in a very good shape even if it is really old and with a “castle ambiance”. The pool area is fantastic, very nice and fresh, totally without insight. The garden is so big that we could do our jogging in the garden. Marie-Sophie is a wonderful host, supporting you with all your needs without being too close. The nearest village is not the most charming but has the grocery stores you need. We went to Cap d'Agde and Marseillan that is two very charming places. The village Carcason is as well worth a visit.

“Breathtakingly perfect”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2015

My husband wished to have a special family holiday with his children and parents. Our group consisted of couples in their 20's, 50's and 70's. We wanted the wow factor which is why we chose Castle Hortes. The photographs do not do this building justice as they do not acurately show the scale. My father-in-law was literally speechless when we arrived. Like many other reviwers we spent a lot of time at the property as the set up of tables and chairs at the front is perfect for all meals and comfortably seats 10. Everything you need to cook is provided with plenty of glasses, cutlery and plates.The swimming pool area is also lovely as are the grounds. All ammenities are close by with a bakery and small supermarket within walking distance in Bessan. Ms. Marie-Sophie is very helpful and informative and close by in case of any problems. This is a beautiful old building and needs to be handled with care but is absolutely perfect for a family holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. All of our group have already expressed a desire to return next year.

“Wonderful stay at Château d'Hortes!”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2014

We enjoyed a very happy time at Château d'Hortes, which is a beautiful, elegant and characterful property, perfect for families. There is an elegant, lovely garden, fantastic & large swimming pool, and the owner was very friendly and welcoming. The area does not have such great tourist guides available, since they miss many interesting and historic villages that are quite close by, so do some exploring. The best town to visit is nearby Pézanas - historic and with lots to see. There is a tourist office here, which is helpful, and parking is easy on the edge of the medieval centre. Approach by car following signs to Pézanas Sud...not 'Centre Ville' - this way you'll get to the car park at Place 14 Juillet by Ave Francois Hue. Other good places to see: Abbaye de Valmagne - vinyard and old abbaye Nézignan-l'Évêque - don't miss the historic church Marseillan - by the sea & Thau lagoon; good resturants. Saint-Thibéry - very close to Bessan Carcassonne - can't be missed, but stuffed full of tourists Generally, head north and you'll see the high Languedoc and the mountains that are very different from the area around Bessan and down to the sea. In Bessan: - visit the wine co-operative (Rose de Bessan) - the best Boulangerie is on the south side of Grande Rue, off Place de la Fontaine (heading towards Pl. de la Mairie). - the Sunday food market is fantastic! Getting to the Château - if your satnav tries taking you through behind the Intermarche...stop! That takes you off-road into huge pot-hole territory! Instead, approach via Boulevard Jean Moulin to Chemin d'Hortes. Its all very convenient to reach from Montpellier or Bezier airports. I'd highly recommend Château d'Hortes for a restful family stay. To be honest, once you've arrived, you won't want to go elsewhere but enjoy just being at such a lovely place.

“A place we return to every year”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

Fantastic feeling when the gates to the castle open and we enter our own oasis. A real castle, all for ourselves. The friendly owner always makes us feel especially welcome to ther castle.

“Superb Chateau”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2013

We spent 2 weeks at Chateau d'Hortes - 4 adults and 3 teenagers. We all enjoyed it tremendously! The Chateau is gorgeous and very comfortable. The grounds are superb and the owner is very service-oriented. Impeccable house-keeping. We will definitely return for another vacation!
