Chateau Villarlong represents much more than just a holiday apartment. By offering a greatly higher privacy than any other hotel-suite, every dwelling of Chateau de Villarlong will be a magnificent location for our guests.

The name of Villarlong derives from the Roman "Villa-Longa“; the origins of Villarlong date back to the 15th century when the Chateau had been built on a Roman foundation. The village of Villarzel used to belong to the Chateau. You can find many remarkable stone constructions, some of them unique, such as the double rounded stairway, the gothic vaults, the monumental barrel-vault in the South wing as well as the fantastic ancient stone construction of the stairway and the historical built-in arches, vaults and stone walls in the park wing. Spread over the magnificent area of Villarlong, there are a Roman wash-room, a Roman well, greenhouses that are built with naturally formed stones, a sun-temple from the Celtic era, a park with centuries old trees, rows of olive trees, 14 acres of vineyard, sparkling springs, orchards, forests and “garrigue”, which is the typical flora in this region. The first church of the Chateau was rebuilt in 1759 and turned into a wine-storage in the early 20th century. Now, carefully restored by the present owners, it serves as a meeting place and platform for cultural events.

Both wings of the Chateau have been converted into spacious, extravagant apartments – each with an open fireplace and separate patio – for 2, 4 or 6 guests. The apartments capture an aura of being remote from urban influence in a very special way; the unique atmosphere of the Chateau remains unchanged. The monumental, extravagant basic structures of the building have been maintained. All apartments have modern, well-equipped kitchens, with dishwasher, ceran hot plates, etc.

Some of the apartments are designed after a certain motto: the historical background of the Chateau as place of refuge for victims of persecution in the Middle Ages and the colonial connections with Africa and Southeast Asia in the 19th century have been taken up for inspiration - not claiming to be ethnologically perfect. Other apartments are designed following the Mediterranean style. The names are taken from the surrounding castles of the Catharians; the names of the motto-inspired apartments are taken from the country they are referring to.
