Description

A majestic 18th century château devoted to hospitality and wine tourism.

This elegant wine estate is located in the heart of the Herault region, 12 km from a small town highly popular with tourists and less than 20 km from a picturesque port with all amenities and numerous restaurants. The property is easily accessible being only 15 minutes from a motorway exit and about 50 minutes from Montpellier and its international airport.

Situated in the heart of its vineyard, the 18th century chateau has been fully renovated in recent years.

With a sublime facade, and a very pure, linear architecture, the chateau sits in 2.5 hectares of landscaped parkland with a magnificent orangery with ceramic tile roof, as well as other agricultural outbuildings that have been converted into luxury gites.

Sumptuously renovated over the last ten years, the 18th century chateau extends over three levels. The ground floor comprises a series of four large lounges, kitchens and reception rooms.

A vast three-storey “cathedral” room accommodates the dining room, a large lounge and the billiard room. This room also leads to the “Cinsaut” suite with a view of the garden, shower room and separate bathroom. This high-ceiling suite also has a magnificent fireplace where guests can enjoy the warmth of the fire in winter.

The first floor is reserved for the owners’ personal use. A large suite boasts a private terrace overlooking the vineyards and the Herault valley. The first floor also comprises three suites, a large living room with a magnificent library with a ceiling height of more than 10 m, a fitted kitchen and a vast terrace on the roof of the chateau.

On the first and second floors of the chateau there are 3 suites and a large apartment with a bedroom, shower room, WC, living room and private terrace with Jacuzzi etc.

Special events – Currently, the chateau offers wedding ceremonies, conferences, seminars, team- building and the organisation of other types of events. Year-round, the chateau operates a bed and breakfast service and gîtes where 60 guests can be accommodated. 35 individual beds are available, divided into 20 rooms and 5 sleeping areas with 16 shower rooms.

The gites – With 7 luxury gites, the chateau welcomes groups and families of from 2 to 11 people in sublime air-conditioned accommodation fitted with new, modern furniture.
The setting on the estate is sumptuous, combining history and luxury. The buildings, all steeped in history, have been renovated with the utmost care using noble materials.

The winery:
With a capacity of 1,200 hl in concrete vats, the winery has a surface area of approximately 800 m2. Extending on from the winery, a barrel ageing cellar with a capacity of around 500 barrels ensures that the estate’s great vintages are matured in excellent conditions.
Currently, the winery buildings are rented out to a local producer who vinifies the estate’s wines as a provision of service.
A range of high quality wines is marketed in white, red and rose.

The vineyards:
The vineyard is made up of two plots of land located about 1 km from each other.
The first plot is located around the château and its outbuildings.
Classed entirely in IGP, the vineyard is well maintained and planted in its entirety with noble varieties (Chardonnay, Vermentino, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon…).
The average yield in recent years has been around 60 hl/ha. The vines are cultivated using a provision of services.
The chateau conceals behind it the winery, the barrel ageing cellar as well as a beautiful set of agricultural outbuildings converted for wine growing and luxury accommodation purposes.

Marketing
In 2019, between the accommodation business and the wine business, the estate’s turnover was in the region of 450,000 euros. This figure will naturally fall in 2020 due to the situation caused by the COVID 19 pandemic.
