Padiès is a commune in the Tarn department in southern France.

Padiès has a chateau situated on the outskirts of the village of Lempaut.
The Château de Padiès is a unique Renaissance Château complex set in the Lauragais of Pastel fame – the “Pays de Cocaigne”, Cathar country and the land of the Troubadours.

As one of the three Seigneuries of Lempaut, Padiès was an integral part of village life, at the time of the Napoleonic census, forty five people lived in the immediate vicinity of the château. They built their shelters using local materials, they farmed, gardened, produced the food and clothes, baked bread, killed and processed the pig and generally lived…..and loved….. in a sustainable environment.

The owners of the Château de Padiès are attempting to reconnect Padiès with its surroundings in a sustainable way.

Padiès was listed on the Inventaire Supplementaire des Monuments Historic (ISMH) in 1928.
