For all the people that have given negative reviews can we please remember that the Chateau Haute Fontaine is a working vineyard on the Mediterranean coast in the middle of the French countryside. You expect dust, cobwebs, and small creatures that bite. If not you need to get booked in to a 4 star hotel in some northern hotel. For... More

I have read with interest previous reviews and can tell you this: Don't come here if you want a soulless clinically clean holiday apartment. Don't come here if you are afraid of flies, wasps and mosquitoes. Don't come here if you really don't like cats. Don't come here if you want shops in walking distance. However please: Do come here...

We stayed for 2 nights last week in the chambres d'hôte part of the chateau. Penny and Paul were extremely welcoming and friendly, the rooms and communal area very well equipped, and the beautiful château in a perfect location for exploring the coast. The nicest local village we found was Peyriac de Mer, which is just down the road with... More

Narbonne town is well worth a visit, as is Fontfroide Abb,Gruissan Old town, la Franqui-Plage, Canal de Midi and the locks at Foncerannes. We... More

Our family of four (children 4 and 7 years old) stayed in the Les Genets Gite at Chateau Haute Fontaine for a week during August 2013 and had a most wonderful holiday. The accommodation was perfect for us, roomy and charming with a well equipped kitchen and two bedrooms, double for us and twin for the kids. The adjacent grounds... More

We have just returned from a week in the Les Genets gite, and loved every moment of it. Les Genets has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, as well as a spacious and well equipped kitchen/living room. The bathroom has a shower and twin sinks. There's a reasonably private area outside area, where we ate most of our meals,... More

I can only assume that the previous reviewers are friends of the owners. My husband and I rented a gite called Les Lavendes for a week here in July. There is so much that could be said about this that it is difficult to know where to begin. The standard is not what I expected given the cost of rental.... More

My husband & I had the two bedroom gites, "Les Lavandes" - plenty of space, used the 2nd bedroom to store all our luggage etc. (part of a three week tour) - we stayed here for a week. We are hoping to return next year for two weeks. (There is still so much to see and visit.) We were greeted... More

My husband and I booked Les Lavendes, two of my daughters, with husbands and children booked the other two gites. Penny and Paul could not be more helpful and informative. Not only did we have an excellent tour of the winery but Penny came up with the perfect place to visit on our way back to Beziers airport. They both... More

We went back to haute Fontaine, having stayed in the large gite (maison java) before. This time we just had a night in the chamber d'hotes, which was comfortable and clean. We chose the rooms with a floral an an indian theme, but the Moroccan and African rooms were also lovely. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and of course the... More
