THE COMMANDERIE OF THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR
Founded in the 13th Century and now presenting an excellent opportunity
TO CREATE AN HOTEL/CHAMBRES D’HOTES/RESTAURANT WITH EXTENSIVE SPACE AND
MUCH RENOVATION ALREADY TAKEN PLACE

Together with A SEPARATE RENOVATED GITE


Location :

Tarn et Garonne, S. W. France ~ set in landscaped and additional grounds extending to a total of approximately 7 ½ acres. On the edge of an historic village and within easy reach of a lively town as well as access to the A20 and onwards to Toulouse International Airport in about an hour.

Summary :

This historic property was founded between 1218 and 1226 by the Knights Templar and in those days anyone inflicting certain marital crimes or practising witchcraft had their house/land confiscated and given to the Commanderie.

Thus this Commanderie des Templiers was famous through the centuries (including a transfer to a religious order) and important changes to the buildings occurred in the 15th,16th and 17th centuries.

The present owners bought the house in 1959 and have, as you will read, worked extensively on the buildings and today historians regard it as one of the most well preserved Commanderies in France..
