Magnificent 18th century chateau near Montpellier in the South of France, 14 guests in 10 bedrooms, staff, private pool and tennis
South of Montpellier, between the sea and a typical Mediterranean garrigue landscape, this magnificent 18th century chateau with its 9th century Romanesque chapel is protected by 160 hectares of land, including 60 hectares of vines, and is nestled in a park of 3 hectares. It can accommodate 14 people, ideally 3 families (3 couples with children), and offers a swimming pool and tennis court. The interior of the castle was renovated in 2014, with a contemporary and uncluttered bias highlighting the volumes of the rooms, the designer furniture and the contemporary paintings hanging on the walls.
Built in 1557 from a Renaissance building, the Château has been blessed with multiple additions and changes at the option of successive owners but has retained a harmonious architecture, astonishingly balanced and classical in order.

The main entrance leads to a hallway with a checkerboard floor leading to two vaulted rooms, with a living room on the left with a magnificent fireplace and a dining room on the right with its table made by a local craftsman and its chairs. Then the hallway leads to a superb and huge ballroom, furnished with sofas covered with Missoni fabrics and a royal piano. The 9th century chapel, magnificently renovated by companions of duty, adjoins this large hall. In the middle of it, a door on the left leads to a tower with 5 small rooms on 5 floors.
The first floor has 3 "master bedrooms", two other smaller bedrooms and a double dressing room. The beds are covered with Missoni fabrics.
Access to a private terrace, partly covered, partly uncovered with a view of the park, allows well-deserved moments of relaxation.
A large park, designed and planted in the 19th century, surrounds the castle and serves as a haven for many birds.
Along the alleys, you will find both fountains and a fish pond filled with carp, which undoubtedly gives the estate a princely allure and numerous fruit trees (fig trees, pear trees, apple trees).
You can swim in the swimming pool (17m x 8m), take a walk in the park or play a game of tennis. A pool house has a changing room and a shower.
The chateau also has bicycles that you can borrow to explore the landscape around the vineyards.
