In Gers, near Samatan, the vast Château de Caumont (16th century) once played host to Henry IV. This fairytale castle still belongs to the Castelbajac family of French nobility.
In Tarn et Garonne, the faithfully restored Château de Gramont overlooks the charming Val d’Arratz. The original 13th century château had a warlike past but in the 16th century it became the delightful residence you can enjoy today.
At the other end of the département, the Château de Saint Projet looks back nostalgically on the time of Queen Margot, who stayed here in 1585.
Not far from there, the Château de Cas (13th-17th century) impresses with its richly furnished and decorated rooms. Continue to Bruniquel with its two châteaux (12th-17th century) overlooking the Aveyron Gorge. Your visit will take you around a maze of galleries, halls and corridors right on the cliff face.
