hateau de Palaminy is a unique and private offering to enjoy your holidays with family and friends or as a retreat for your business or social/arts group. Located in southwestern France, 40 minutes from Toulouse-Blagnac International Airport, the 6 bedroom/6 bath wing of the Chateau is currently available for self catering rentals (1 week minimum, up to 12 guests).
et on a 10 acre park, adjoining ancient village, the historical castle of Palaminy gives the chance of a unique experience in a peaceful environment. You are invited to use the enormous, 53 by 23 meter pool, believed to be the 2nd largest private pool in France (during the summer months). Or to enjoy a genuine chateau feeling while wandering through the jardins à la française …
our hosts, Marquis Robert and Marquess Jeanne-Marie de Palaminy, both fluent in English, are enthusiastic historians and art patrons who live in the main chateau section adjoining the rented wing. They will greet you warmly and provide an historical overview of their family and the surrounding region known for its abbeys, cloisters and sacred sites from Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods (More at “Discover the region”)

I appreciate continuing the tradition of hospitality which is in Palaminy one of our family values. “La vie de château” and its charm, as well as all the beauties of the region, are to be shared : these are values to be transmitted to those ready to appreciate it in our 21st century.
Being a castle owner nowadays requires the attention of preserving, maintaining and transmitting such an heritage. Being faithful to our history means that we have to keep it alive. From my point of view, the sense of heritage is universally a vital component of all cultures.
Les enfants nous parlent de la pièce d’eau de Palaminy encore dix ans après !
Quel souvenir merveilleux pour nous aussi…
(Ten years later, our children still mention the giant swimming pool! What a marvelous souvenir for us too …)
What a marvellous place… My nieces enjoyed their visit to Palaminy so much …
Marvellous holiday, lots of pretty walks… What a lovely pool…
Merci pour avoir décoré ces pièces selon votre goût qui met si bien en valeur le caractère du château…
Thank you for the refined taste you expressed in the decoration, it suits so well with the character of the castle
On se trouve si bien dans le parc, au bord de la pièce d’eau et dans le château qu’il est souvent difficile de se lancer pour faire du tourisme dans les superbes paysages d’alentour…
(It feels so good in the park, by the pool and in the castle, that at times it is difficult to go sightseeing around in the charming landscapes of the area.)
Quelle chance de découvrir des villes et des paysages si charmants et encore peu envahis de touristes…
(What an opportunity to discover so many towns and landscapes with charm and so far uncrowded)
