Château de Thuries

Château de Thuriés as seen on Escape to the Château DIY

For us, the Château de Thuriés was a stand out in the most recent Escape to the Château DIY Series 3.  Didn’t we all wonder just how Jane was going to successfully paint the mural on the staircase?!  The way she achieved the perspective on such a voluminous, uphill and curving “canvas” is unbelievable.  Wow and wow is all you can say at the end result – Jayne are you an ancestor of Michelangelo?!

Château de Thuries (40 mins equidistant from both Toulouse and Carcassone) is a run as a boutique B&B and retreat venue. The Château is on 1.5 hectares of parkland with the Canal du Midi running along the bottom of the grounds, ideal for walking or biking.   There is a Saturday morning market in the nearby town of Revel – touted as one of the best in France. Plans are in place for a heated swimming pool.

The owners, Jayne and Steve Simmons moved from Gloucester in 2017 and have spent that time tirelessly faceting this diamond in the rough and creating the beautiful gem it is today.  The decor which Jayne and Steve have selected and created is truly Châteauesque, each room is a delight – even the reception area.

Their doors are now open and they have some exciting and very interesting events coming up in 2020:
