Château de Malérargues is in the country,
quite isolated (nearest village with shops is Lasalle, 6km West.)
Obviously it is best to come by car (see car
rentals below) - but with a minimum of coordination all problems
get sorted out easily. One can also rent bicycles (minimum fitness
required since it is fairly hilly - usually 30€ per week.)
Great walks too!
