Château de Rudelle

Muret, France

The Château de Rudelle is a 16th and 17th century castle in the commune of Muret. The castle is noted for its ancient chimneys and for murals painted on the third floor.

It was built by Guillaume de Rudelle, the son of Jean de Rudelle, a counsellor to the king. In 1783, Jean-Marie-Joseph Ingres, the father of the famous artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, stayed there and painted several ceilings. At the French Revolution, the property was taken as a national asset and sold at auction.

The building today has a reactangular plan within square towers at each corner. On the south, a square tower projects slightly. On the top floor, immediately below the roof, is a series of arcades on the north and south façades. Mullioned windows decorate the façade. The upper floors are reached by a wooden spiral staircase.

Beautiful! I rented a room there for a training session. We had tables covered with beautiful white tablecloths, and a lit fireplace. My clients were under the spell. We were also very well received.

Super hotel 10 minutes by car from Toulouse in a private domain of 5ha. A haven of peace in an old 16th century mill. The owners are wonderful and warm!

It is a wonderful wedding memory that we had celebrated at the Moulin de Rudelle in November 2018. Two years later, this place remains dear to our hearts, whether it is the mill in a wooded and quiet setting or the guest rooms, including the bride and groom's bedroom with its waterfall. Everything was perfect ! We thank again our dear friend Bruno and his wife for their professionalism, their kindness and above all their warm smile.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
