Medieval castle sleeping 16 with a pool, surrounded by vineyards and ideal for celebrations near Carcassonne

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Chateau d'Agel, Agel, Minervois, South of France, sleeps 10-16 in 7 bedrooms.

Castle perfect for families, groups of friends, celebrations or special occasions and weddings. If what you have in mind is getting away from it all with family or friends, you can rent the entire château and have the buildings, park and pool all to yourselves.

Looking for an authentic setting or planning a wedding where your guests will enjoy an experience they’ll never forget ? We’d be delighted to welcome your group or party to the Château d’Agel, and to help you with whatever is needed to make your event a success: parties, receptions, dinners, concerts, wedding… Receive your guests and when the festivities are over, let some of them sleep it off in our comfortable bedrooms.
