The Details...

Around 11 miles from Carcassonne, the village of Montolieu is the scenic setting for former linen factory, La Manufacture Royale so named as it was built for King Louis XV. Maintaining much of its 18th-century grandeur, in the form of marble fireplaces, high ceilings and an impressive stone staircase, the building now houses a selection of charming rooms and apartments, made all the more enticing by a beautiful garden and river backdrop.

Offering a real taste of life in the Occtanie region of southern France, La Manufacture Royale is located on a tiny medieval street in Montolieu one of only three designated book villages in all of France. It lives up to its name with around 15 bookshops to lose yourself in, as well as a museum where you can learn about the art of bookbinding. Its also a regional centre for graphic arts, with several artists and photographers studios located in the village.

La Manufacture Royale has several options to accommodate you, each with lots of individual character. The accommodation is made up of 5 apartments. A quartet of self-contained apartments includes Safran and Tomate on the first floor, and ground-floor Coquille, all of which can sleep up to four. Each has its own sense of style, but you will find a full kitchen in each with an oven, microwave, washing machine, Nespresso coffee maker and more.

Sleeping up to three guests, there is also Pomme, a first-floor apartment looking out on the garden and river, and featuring an eye-catching old fireplace in the living room. A trio of rooms, Chambre la Dure, Chambre Reims and the aptly named Studio Orange offer yet more creative design touches a chance to choose the one which best fits your personal taste.

It is also possible to exclusively hire the whole place, You can rent the whole property for a maximum of 20 people. Please contact the owner for the exclusive rental price.

A large and magnificent garden is one of the houses most appealing advantages, particularly because the River Dure flows right through it. There is plenty to keep you outdoors, including a swimming pool, hammocks, barbecue and picnic spots, and a childrens play area with swings, a trampoline and playhouse.

Its just a short walk into Montolieu, which remains as picturesque and old-school as you would hope. Wander in the right direction and you may discover that the village is built on the edge of a deep ravine. Not far from the village in Saint-Martin-le-Vieil, the ruins of the Cistercian abbey of Villelongue and a recreated medieval garden are among local places of interest, while other pretty villages like Revel and Saissac are also worth a visit.

The restored medieval city of Carcassonne on the River Aude is within easy reach too, with World Heritage Site status just one of the highlights of this historically rich region which is sure to enchant you.
