The Forge of Montolieu is set upon 41 acres boasting a beautiful lake, a river, waterfalls and lush gardens. The Forge began as a chambre d’hôtes with four rooms, then expanded with two gites. The additions continued and now include a cocoon tree tent and tiny house around the lake. All of our quarters are equipped with modern conveniences for cooking and sanitary needs.  Communication won’t be a problem as there is an English speaking host.

Montolieu is known as a book and artist town and is only 5 minutes from the property. Nearby locations include Canal du Midi and Carcassonne, both just 20 minutes away. The property is nestled between Cathare castles and the great Languedoc wine country.  It is the perfect base camp to discover the region.

The Forge's onsite dining option with local and organic products has built quite a reputation, however there are also many restaurants in the village and the immediate surroundings. We have partnered with a group that provides local winery and gastronomical tours in English for those with discerning tastes.
