Chateau La Commanderie

La Commanderie was built in the 12th century by Guillaume de Plaigne, a Cathar Lord, who took an active role in the Battle of Avignonet and afterwards joined the besieged stonghold at the famous siege of Montsegur. In the 16th century, Barthelemy de Plaigne extended the chateau by creating the Salle des Chevaliers. His daughter, Anne de Plaigne, who married the Count de Pibrac in 1642, sold Plaigne to François-Paul de Béon-Massès-Cazaux, head of the order of St Jonh in Toulouse, who, in 1685, established this domain as a Commanderie of the Knights of Malta. It remained in their ownership until the French Revolution. In the 19th century, the chateau belonged to Mr de Nicol, who modernized the building, and it remained in this family for a century, the last descent being Vilolette de Ferluc.

La Commanderie was bought in 1973 by Marie-France Gregory, mother of the present owner; it has been completely restored and furnished in period style by this family of artists and art lovers.
