Weddings Near Carcassonne

Perfect for weddings, anniversary and birthday celebrations near Carcassonne and Toulouse


Peter Lawton, formerly the manager of the Samling Hotel in Lake Windermere, and his interior designer wife Katie invite you to enjoy their exclusive boutique guest house: L’Abbaye-Chateau de Camon. Just 45 minutes from both Carcassonne and Toulouse airports and with views from its terraced grounds over the Lauragais hills, this is an ideal location from which to explore the beautiful departments of the Aude and Ariège. Or you can simply choose to relax on site: in the summer the extensive grounds and terraces, along with the swimming pool, provide ample space to while away the hours sipping local wines whilst in cooler months you can simply curl up with your favourite book in front of a roaring log fire.

Each room has been exquisitely designed with fine linens, sumptuous drapes, and elegant furniture. The restaurant offers great food using superb local and seasonal ingredients and guests cannot fail to enjoy dining in the wonderfully atmospheric cloisters in the summer or the intimate dining room in the cooler months. Of the 13 bedrooms available, 6 are in use as Chambre d’Hôtes during the high season whilst the entire Abbaye can be hired for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries and birthday parties.
