“A once in a lifetime experience”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were lucky enough to stay here to celebrate my sister's wedding and it's impossible to describe how special this venue is. The chateau itself just oozes history and it was a privilege to live there for a week. As a wedding venue it was spectacular - the ceremony was on the lawns with the chateau as a backdrop and surrounded by acres of sunflowers. The setting really made their day unforgettable. And the swimming pool and shaded areas gave a real festival vibe to the evening celebrations. We stayed as a group for a week after the wedding and it was just amazing to explore the chateau fully and appreciate the many beautiful artifacts and incredible restoration work that have gone into keeping La Commanderie as the step back in time that it is.

“A magical wedding venue”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I fell in love with this venue for our wedding after looking at many venues around the South of France. Rebecca was very accommodating, putting us in touch with a fantastic wedding planner and helping us to buy our wine from a local vineyard. She also allowed us to put up a marque and dance floor in the garden for 100 guests. The wedding was a great success with the DJ playing until dawn as the house has no neighbors to disturb!
The accommodation itself was very good. The bathrooms and kitchen are newly renovated to the highest spec so very luxurious. The rooms are beautiful with some amazing furniture and antiques. The surrounding countryside and local towns such as Mirepoix (only 15 mins down the road) are also stunning.
Overall we had the most fantastic week and we would recommend the venue to anyone looking for a romantic French provincial wedding or just a very special week away with friends and family.

“A Picture Perfect Wedding”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We couldn't have found a more idyllic venue for our wedding. The chateau itself is beautifully decorated, and Rebecca gave us great recommendations for local vendors.

In the week leading up to the wedding, we spent a lot of time by the pool and playing Boules on the terrace. The evenings were a little bit cooler, so it gave us the perfect opportunity to have our dinners by the fire.

There is also a lot to do in the area- from the prehistoric cave paintings to biking and hiking in the Pyrenees. We even came across a band competition in Mirepoix, where they were playing everything from White Stripes to songs from Pulp Fiction.

We have stayed in a number of vacation rentals in the South of France, but this one was by far our favorite. There has already been discussion about returning to celebrate our anniversary.

“Be careful. You may get what you wish for”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

"Be careful, you may get what you wish for." Life is full of cruel and unjustified surprises. Anyone who's lived will tell you that. Except in this case. I recently wrote a book that was translated into French. Great reviews. (If I do say so myself) I don't bring this up to toot my own horn. My publisher, as a result, decided to host a week- long celebration for me and potential book sellers. They chose Chateau la Commanderie and it was MORE than I could have wished of. The chateau is right out of novels far greater than mine, (replete with 13th century staircases and hidden rooms) Anything we needed was supplied in a moment's notice. The grounds are lush and beautiful. I was there to celebrate my book but wound up celebrating my surroundings. You'd have to be crazy not to adore this place. I know I'm gushing and going on and on, but it was truly a magical experience. The owner, Rebecca Gregory, was a delight as well. In short, I'd sit down and write another book just to go back to the chateau. And believe me, that's saying a lot.
