Nestled in the Garonne river valley, at the footstep of the Pyrenees mountains, this French Chateau offers a unique lifestyle experience in one of the most beautiful regions of France.
Built between 1515 and 1525, the property has been fully renovated and offers modern, luxurious facilities in an untouched historical environment. You will enjoy 40 hectares of tree plantations, breathtaking views, a heated swimming pool, plenty of leisure options and unforgettable gastronomy.
The chateau’s heated swimming pool (16/6 meters) is open from May until October and is the ideal place to enjoy those precious and rare moments of “farniente”.
The pool is situated inside a fenced (walled) parcel, about 50 meters away from the chateau’s tower.
Inside that parcel lies our orchard. You will enjoy tasting our organic berries, cherries, plums, apples, pears, apricots, figs and more from June until September.
Next to the pool, an old greenhouse was converted into a very convenient pool-house, equipped with a functional kitchen and a toilet. Barbecuing by the pool is a must. It will bring joy and laughter to your group along with those traditional, « manly » comments on the best ways to light a fire …
The pool area is the vibrant heart of the property during the summer days, but also in spring and parts of the autumn. And it is a beautiful setting for a Sunday brunch, following a wedding.
FIVE ELEGANT LIVING SPACES - Wifi throughout the property. There are 2 Satellite TV's within the property.
The living areas include two dining rooms, a living room, a fully functional office/business centre and a billiard/games room.
The historical Guard’s Room (Salle des Gardes) has merely changed over the past five centuries. Initially, a room where the castle‘s personnel cooked and guards came seeking some comfort by its massive fireplace, it has become the primary dining room and remains the true heart of the Chateau.
The Formal (Yellow) Dining Room is a very elegant place for an exclusive Gala dinner. It can also be converted into a conference room with a capacity of 30 to 40 participants.
The Red Living Room is a perfect example of XIXth century Gothic Revival. The massive chimney was redone at the time, based on an existing model from Chateau de Blois in the Loire Valley. The addition of wooden panelling by the Architect Ruprich Robert gives a very warm feeling to this « salon » which is often used for drinks/aperitif before dinner.
The Office, formerly a chapel, is located on the ground floor of the main tower. It is a quiet space for work, communications and reading. It offers reliable, high-speed wi-fi access and a printer, along with a widescreen TV with hundreds of channels available.
Located on the chateau’s top floor, the Billiard Room is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of Armagnac after dinner. It is also the chateau’s screening room: its large television set has access to major international channels through satellite connection, and guests enjoy a large choice of DVDs.
SEVEN GORGEOUS SUITES AT THE CHATEAU (see FACILITIES for more info). All with heating. One with air-conditioning.
The historical rooms have been decorated over a ten-year time frame by the current owner and are unique in style, offering the cosy feeling and charm that have made the reputation of Chateau de Saint-Martory. The Cathedral suite, however, is “outrageously” modern as you will see from the photos. Created in 2008, it offers a unique view of the chateau’s roof structure (namely its original oak wood beams), 5-meter high ceilings, and has been decorated with contemporary art, a design bed (designed by the owner) and 1950’s and 1960’s Brazilian furniture.
All the bathrooms, except the Cathedral’s, have large retro bathtubs. Six of the bedrooms offer queen or king size while one of them offers two spacious single beds.
Accommodation at the nineteenth-century farmhouse

WE TAKE GASTRONOMY SERIOUSLY
The South-West is a unique region in terms of good food, wine and spirits and we take gastronomy very seriously at Saint-Martory.
In addition to selecting the best possible staff for lunches and dinners to be served at the property, we can help organize unforgettable culinary day trips. We can guarantee that you will be well-received by the best producers of the region, including our Armagnac cousins in Lannepax!
We also have a very interesting selection of French wines in our cellar. Some of them are available for guests and the cave list changes every year depending on latest additions and the ageing process of existing bottles. We will be glad to organize a wine tasting with the help of a local sommelier or even a special all-cheese dinner with a variety of wines and a blasting Armagnac tasting to finish it all.
Close-by Gers is a beautiful region, with a very scenic countryside, and offers visitors an opportunity to discover (or re-discover) foie gras, Armagnac and the excellent wines of Madiran. As part of a day trip (minibus can be arranged) I recommend visiting:
The great Madiran wine region. Stop by at the best local producer, the man who put South-West wines on the map about 20 years ago, Monsieur Alain Brumont. You will be welcomed with a tour of the vineyard and “chai”, as well as a wine tasting. Lunch at the vineyard is possible and highly recommended.
The cities of Mirande, Auch, Vic Fezensac and/or Eauze.
During this road trip, stop at Lannepax (close to Vic Fezensac) and say hello to the Delord, my “Gascon cousins” who have been producing Armagnac since the 19th century. They will show you around the “chai” … The phone number of the Armagnac Delord distillery is 05 62 06 36 07; ask for Jérôme.
Visitors willing to drive a little further away will be able to taste the gastronomy of the Pays Basque or Perigord, as well as the grapes of Minervois, Corbières, Mas Amiel, Cahors, etc.

500 YEARS AND COUNTING
The History of the Chateau de Saint Martory dates back to the beginning of the XVIth century when the Montpezat family, lords of Saint Martory, decided to abandon their medieval fortress, which stood on a cliff overlooking the entire Garonne valley and settle near the riverbed to control commercial traffic and … enjoy life!
The Chateau’s architecture is a perfect example of early French Renaissance and offers many similarities with the chateaux of the Loire Valley, although it preceded many of them. Construction began in 1515 and ended supposedly between 1520 and 1525.
Several years after the French revolution, around 1850, the Prince of Berghes (from Northern France) married the daughter of the then-owner and decided to renovate the chateau to transform it into a summer residence. The architect in charge of the works was Victor Ruprich Robert, a fellow of Viollet Le Duc, the first architect in France who undertook the renovation of medieval and Renaissance buildings, and whose major accomplishments include the renovation of the Carcassonne fortress, the Cathedral of Saint-Denis near Paris and the Basilica Saint Sernin in Toulouse.
The interior layout of the chateau was transformed significantly during the renovation, in particular through the addition of wooden panelling, which represented a “modern view” of “gothic style” in those days. Modern comfort was also added with, for example, the creation of separate bathrooms on each floor.
Subsequently, the chateau changed hands numerous times until it was acquired by the family of the current owner in the early 1990’s and fully renovated starting in 1998.
CARING EXCLUSIVELY ABOUT YOU
The Chateau is generally rented out as a whole and our guests always have different expectations. Since we started renting out the property, almost 10 years ago, we have always tailored services to the visitor’s needs in order to provide the best possible experience.
This attention to details enables us to be a unique destination regardless of the purpose of your stay (e.g. vacations, executive retreats, weddings, photo shoots, etc.)
If you simply want to relax in a historical and comfortable environment, the basic staff will include cleaning personnel, gardeners and onsite concierge/security. Extra staff will be hired according to your requirements. A butler for example?
If you like food and wine, we will help you experience the best of our region’s gastronomy with the help of local chefs who will cook for you at the chateau, and you will visit wine as well as Armagnac producers who have been our partners for years.
If you want to get married in Saint-Martory we will make sure the event happens as you have dreamed it, without boundaries or limitations.
If you like adventurous sports, we can help you organize everything from paragliding to hot air balloon rides … to heli-skiing in the Pyrenees, taking off from the very lawn of the chateau.
Summarizing it all, we are not a hotel, we are a unique and exclusive private property and we will make you feel at home in Saint-Martory.
AN IDYLLIC VENUE FOR YOUR WEDDING
What could be more romantic than marrying the love of your life in a French chateau? We have been hosting destination weddings since 2015 and hope to be a favoured wedding venue for the coming years as it is really an amazing moment to witness, even from behind the scenes.
Large weddings can be organized in Saint-Martory as long as a professional wedding planner is involved. The bride and groom are free to choose the professional they prefer but we will be happy to indicate one that we trust and is fluent in English.
The ceremony itself can be held anywhere inside the property but we also have a Catholic Church within walking distance for those who want to marry religiously.
In order to welcome wedding dinners and parties, we created, back in 2015, a beautiful reception room at the farmhouse of the chateau, 100 yards away from the castle itself. The room can host approximately 130 people and is equipped with sufficient tables and chairs for the event.
The courtyard of the farmhouse is also a beautiful setting for a true lifestyle destination wedding (if weather permits). The square courtyard has an open barn where the dance floor can be set up and one aisle of the buildings has been converted into facilities. Last but not least, a separate space inside the farmhouse’s courtyard has been retrofitted to allow caterers to work efficiently.
Getting married in St Martory is easy in terms of logistics as the Toulouse airport is very well connected. We will help with local accommodation and transportation as required. And we will also be pleased to help you organize activities ahead of the event, for example, a wine tasting or a white water rafting experience.
We charge a specific wedding fee on top of normal lodging rates (please refer to Rates section). The wedding fee includes the rental of the reception room, facilities, tables and chairs, and the right to welcome any number of guests on the grounds for two occasions over a weekend period: Either Friday night and Saturday (all day & night), or Saturday (all day & night) and a lunch on Sunday. We will provide the required staff to ensure safety and privacy during the two events. Additional events can be organized on demand with the payment of a limited extra fee per person.
You can see below a photo gallery with a selection of great pictures from recent weddings. Please also visit our Facebook page for images of past weddings at the Chateau de Saint-Martory.

It's an amazing experience to have your own private chateau for a week, especially since this one has a huge chunk of the original land around it for privacy and calm. Facing the Garonne River, the ambience is fabulous and it's just a couple of minutes walk into town. The pool and adjacent pool house with kitchen are a very nice touch.
The Chateau is a historic property, with renovations exceedingly well done, though as a property it retains plenty of country charm, ie not your classic big-city, big-hotel style. The owner has continued to make upgrades and invest over the last few years, as well as increasing staffing for group programs so it just continues to get better.
We hosted a cycling group there and I can't say enough about how well set up it is for cyclists with incredible riding in the area. There's every choice of terrain, from the mountains, to flat river roads, to rolling river valleys. And the country roads are empty of traffic -- you usually see a single car every 5-10 minutes.
We celebrated our Wedding over four magical days at Chateau Saint-Martory in September 2016. After viewing the property a year before we were in no doubt it was the perfect setting for our wedding! The Chateau itself is the most stunning property, full of old furnishings and historic charm but also very homely. Each room is spectacular in its own way and the views overlooking the Garonne river are breathtaking. The grounds are enchanting and well kept and provided an incredible backdrop for our wedding photos.
Jean-Francois was a fantastic host, he provided exceptional assistance with every query we had over the year we spent planning. No question was too big or too small, he was always on hand to help. Patrick and his team were brilliant during our stay - nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed with the bridal party and immediate family in the Chateau and cottage. The cottage was particularly good for children as was close to the courtyard where the wedding reception was held. The courtyard provided the most enchanting setting for the reception and we danced until the early hours. We spent the day following the wedding relaxing with our guests by the pool reminiscing on a wonderful few days and not wanting to leave.
We would highly recommend Chateau Saint-Martory for a celebration of any kind. It will always hold a special place in our hearts and memories - we already look forward to the next time we will visit this magical place.
Un lieu, une histoire, une occasion...notre mariage.
C'est dans ce cadre exceptionnel que nous avons pu célébrer le notre.
C'est pour toute petite fille un rêve de princesse durant un weekend, un compte de fée dans un lieu magique et inoubliable.
Les prestations sont sans failles, le personnel d'une gentillesse et d'un dévouement extraordinaire et la disponibilité du propriétaire est remarquable malgré la distance.
Très peu connu dans la région pour l'organisation d'événement, ce domaine est très correct en terme de tarification par rapport aux prestations proposées, au nombre de couchage qu'il offre et surtout par rapport au service du personnel.
Nous y fêterons je l'espère nos 10 ans, nos 20 ans et même nos 50 ans de mariage...
Alors plus d'hésitation, foncez et réserver ce lieu le temps d'un weekend, d'une semaine ou tout simplement pour vous faire plaisir.
Je finirai par un petite phrase que Patrick nous a dit en arrivant: "ici tout est possible a part vous décrocher la lune".
Sachez que pour nous vous en avez fait bien plus et nous vous en remercions.
A place, a story, an opportunity...our marriage.
It was in this exceptional setting that we were able to celebrate ours.
It is a dream for any little girl to be a princess during a weekend, a fairy in a magical and unforgettable place.
The service is flawless, the staff are of an amazing kindness and dedication and the availability of the owner is remarkable, despite the distance.
Not very well known in the region for the organisation of such events, this area is great in terms of pricing and the services offered, and the number of people that the property sleeps.
We will celebrate 10 years, 20 years and even 50 years of marriage here...
So no more hesitation, go and book this place for a weekend, a week or simply to enjoy yourself for a while.
I will quote a short sentence that Patrick said when we arrived: "here, everything is possible, except to move the moon."
Know that you have gone above and beyond for us, and we thank you.
On peut difficilement trouver mieux pour un break de quelques jours dans le sud ouest. Mon epouse et moi avons passé un moment hors du temps dans ce lieu exceptionnel. Les proprietaires ont tout fait pour que leurs hotes se sentent chez eux et puissent pleinement profiter du chateau, de son parc et de la region environnante. nous n'avons qu'une seule envie, c'est d'y retourner!
It is hard to find a better location for a short trip in the South West. My fiancé and I had an incredible time in this exceptional property. The owners did everything possible so that we would feel at home, and to make the most of the Chateau, the grounds and its environment. We only have one desire, and that's to return!"
Le Château de Saint-Martory est un lieu réellement unique et enchanteur, offrant autant une intimité luxueuse digne des milles et une nuits que des espaces conviviaux de rencontre. La majesté du château récemment rénové saute aux yeux, autant que le vaste espace qui l’entoure.
Nous conservons un vif souvenir de cet espace féérique, ainsi que de l’accueil chaleureux que nous ont réservés le châtelain Jean-François et son sympathique majordome Patrick, lesquels ont démontré une réelle disponibilité et écoute, afin que puissions profiter au mieux de notre séjour, en famille et avec bébé!
The Chateau Saint-Martory is a really unique and enchanting place, offering not only an intimate stay that rivals the "Milles et une nuit" fairytale, but also a wonderful space to relax. The recently renovated Chateau is such a beautiful sight, as well as the vast grounds that surrounds it.
We will always have a lovely memory of this fairytale castle, as well as a fond memory of the charming welcome that we received from Jean-Francois, as well as the very kind Patrick. They were really at your service and listened to and encouraged all requests that would make our stay even better, for our family and our baby.
A l'occasion d'un mariage, nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable au chateau de Saint Martory sur le bord de la Garonne. Le chateau offre un lieu de résidence magnifique, restauré et meublé avec goût et offrant un espace tout confort des plus agréable; je ne pense pas avoir déjà eu l'occasion de profiter d'une chambre à coucher aussi grande!
Le parc entourant le chateau est superbe, les fortes températures du séjour nous ont particulièrement fait apprécier la piscine. L'espace de reception nouvellement aménagé dans les dépendences (où la reception du mariage à eu lieu) est aussi très beau et fonctionnel.
Nous avons reçu un accueil chaleureux de Jean-Francois et de son équipe.
À noter pour les voyageurs: il est possible de se rendre à Saint Martory par train, mais avoir une voiture est un atout si vous désirez découvrir la région -- les activités accessibles à pied sont relativement restreintes.
Merci pour cette belle semaine!
We were there for a wedding and had an unforgettable week in the Chateau de Saint Martory on the edge of Garonne. The Chateau provides a magnificent living space, renovated and furnished with taste, and offering a very comfortable space to relax. I do not think I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy such a large bedroom!
The park surrounding the Chateau is superb, the strong temperatures of the days really made us appreciate the swimming pool. The wedding reception area has also recently been renovated and is very beautiful and functional.
We received a very warm welcome from Jean-Francois and his team.
One thing to note for future guests: It is indeed possible to get to Saint Martory via train, but having a car is a definite requirement if you're looking to explore the region, as the activities that are accessible by foot are fairly restrained.
Thank you for this wonderful week!
