Enjoying life

At the nearby wine chateau "Les Deux Soeurs" the sisters Catherine and Isabelle are happy to show you how they make their wine and you can of course taste their delicious wines. For those who prefer non-alcoholic drinks the famous Jus de Chasselas (grape juice) in the area around Moissac will be a tasty alternative. The "chasselatiers" will happily introduce you to this special drink. For lovers of digestives there is the Armagnac (a kind of "cognac").


There are several charming and very good restaurants nearby including the elected Best Restaurant of the region "Auberge de Bardigues" and the 2-star Michelin restaurant "Michel Trama". On the local (organic) weekly markets you will find a variety of local produce to inspire your own culinary exploits: delicious cheeses, pâtés, jams, vegetables and other local delicacies. In summer you can enjoy a "marché gourmand" almost every day, a bustling night market where you can eat at long tables.


Architecture, art and culture

Within walking distance of Castelsagrat is Montjoi. A beautifully restored old style village where time seems to have stood still.

Moissac with its beautiful cloister is a stop on the route to Santiago de Compostella. In the Rue des Arts you can visit the studios of various artists and craftsmen. Also worth a visit is Toulouse, the fourth largest city in France. The Museum of Modern Art "Les Abattoirs" and the wonderful Musée des Beaux Arts "Les Augustins" (permanent collection and temporary exhibitions) are just some of the sites worth visiting.



In spring and summer numerous “brocantes” (antique and flea markets) are held every weekend. Here you can still find reasonable priced antiques and fun second-hand stuff. There are also some brocante shops nearby. In Castelsagrat a large brocante on the square is held twice year: on Easter Sunday and on the second Sunday of August.
