Témoignages de nos hôtes
à travers le monde
Having known the Combes family in 2003, I have been fortunate to have spent many stays at the Château de Garrevagues over the years. The welcome of the family and Marie-Christine especially is out of the extraordinary. She makes everybody feel welcome, at home and always knows how to touch people’s hearts and minds. It is the personality of Marie-Christine as a host that makes a stay at Chateau de Garrevaques an exceptional moment, enjoying the beautiful, well maintained Chateau with all its history and stories and the beautiful surroundings of the Lauragais. To me and my family the Chateau and the Combes Family are home and family. Thank you for all you give to all those that come and go!
Château de Garrevaques
Charles de Gineste
Charles De Gineste-Najac, known as the Chevalier de Najac (1754-1826) and his little brother Etienne, used their swords in service of the "Insurgents." They participated in all French campaigns of the American Revolution as part of the Agenois Regiment, including Battle of Yorktown, with the armies of Rochambeau, and the Marquis de Lafayette. Charles was captain and knight of the royal and military order of Saint-Louis. In 1792, he left the military, married and moved to Garrevaques, where he and his family succumbed to all the dangers and misfortunes that the aristocracy endured during the Revolution. Two of his brothers, François and Marc-Antoine, joined the Army of the Émigrés (in Count of La Châtre’s Regiment of Loyal-Emigrés). Philippe, Charles’s son, was born in French revolution’s prison in 1795.
