~ Gorges du Tarn Hotel ~

“ The Hôtel Château de la Caze, cocooned in more than 500 Years of
European history, is situated in the Gorges du Tarn, a region of
outstanding natural beauty in France ”
Hotel Chateau de la Caze
“ The views of Chateau de la Caze looked fantastic and I couldn't believe that the reality
would be even better but it was! The location is absolutely stunning and our room on the
first floor of the chateau had breathtaking views over the Tarn Gorges. All the staff spoke
English and were incredibly helpful. This is a real fairy-tale castle and you feel you are
entering the Middle Ages (but with 20th century mod cons) when you cross the moat into the
stone entrance hall which is lit by candles in the evening. Dinner on the terrace was delicious
and beautifully presented and came with extra little 'tasters' with every course. Couldn't
recommend it highly enough! ” (W.J. USA)

Hotel Chateau de la Caze

 ( La Caze is only 90km away through an exciting 
 road crossing a region of sublime beauty )

Photo of the Millau Viaduct
The Millau Viaduct is a cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn
near Millau in the Aveyron. Designed by architect Sir Norman Foster, in collaboration with
French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux, it is the highest vehicular bridge in the world,
with one pier's summit at 343 metres (1,125 ft) - slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only
38 m (125 ft) shorter than the Empire State Building .... and only 35 miles from LA CAZE.

Built during the reign of Charles VIII, in a region of outstanding natural beauty, this castle has been turned into a hotel of great distinction. All the rooms are furnished in 15th century style with tapestries and painted ceilings. You can dream of the past in front of the large open fire place or be enchanted by the wild scenery on the terrace.

As one drives along the D907 "Gorges du Tarn" Road and arrives at a point some 5km northeast of La Malene, a modest roadsign announces the imminent presence of the Hotel de la Caze. And then, on turning a corner, La Caze comes into view. It is resplendent with towers befitting Rapunzel, and could be straight out of a fairytale. Still with the original cobblestone upper floor, this hotel today, amazingly, fully maintains the ambiance of the 15th century.

The Valley of the Tarn is sure to captivate anyone who is at all interested in nature. One can hire canoes and gently paddle downstream, or rent a motorized boat complete with boatman who will "drive" you upstream. If you understand French the added bonus will be an interesting commentary about this valley which is one of the prettiest in Europe. Often, as you look up, the road will seem to be clinging right on to the cliffside!

Explore some of the villages that are little changed since the 15th century, enjoy the splendid cuisine bourgeoise served at the small roadside restaurants along the valley, and wash this down with wines that are very often produced in vineyards only a kilometer or two from where you are drinking them.

French spacer “ Majestueux château du 15e siècle surgissant au milieu des arbres dans un parc au bord
du Tarn. Meubles en style et actuels personnalisent les chambres. La petite salle à manger
occupe une ancienne chapelle (croisées d'ogives, cheminée gothique) ” (Michelin)

Un Château, une Vie, cinq siècles d'Histoire!...mais une belle histoire de Dames puisque ce fabuleux château, construit sous Charles VIII pour la beauté d'une châtelaine, n'a jamais cessé d'honorer la Femme. Et là nul n'est besoin d'écrire pour être entendu... Il faut aller à "La Caze".

German Das unter Karl VIII. im 15.Jh. erbaute "Château de la Caze" hat seinen eigentümlichen Charakter bewahrt. Im Schloss stilvolle Zimmer, in denen die Ursprünglichkeit und Atmosphäre des historischen Ortes bewahrt wurden. Im Sommer umgibt Sie auf der Terrasse der Zauber erholsamer Ruhe und die Schönheit der zarten und urwüchsigen Natur.

Flemish spacer2 WELKOM IN DE LOZERE
Mooiste canyon van Frankrijk in de Gorges du Tarn

Het is een van de dunst bevolkte streken van Frankrijk en tot voor enkele jaren ook het armste departement. Toerisme was hier lange tijd onbestaand ...
Lozère is de naam van een departement in de Languedoc-Roussillon. In het noorden ligt de Auvergne, in het oosten vleit het zich aan tegen de Ardèche en de Cévennes ...
Sinds kort is er de A 75, La Méridienne, heel trots aanbevolen als une autoroute sans péage, met de beroemde brug over de vallei van de Tarn in Millau ...

Château de la Caze in La Malène : unieke ligging in de prachtige canyon, aan de oevers van de Tarn. Antiek in de kamers van het kasteel, luchtig zomers comfort in de suites van de dépendances. Grote tuin, zwembad en volkomen rust. Een adres om met een stapel boeken en een fles wijn het leven (en de kajakkers) te laten voorbij glijden ...... Chris Vandendriessche (De Standaard)
