The Domaine de Verchant is a place that disconnects you from the world without making you a foreigner. It is a land unto itself, a place that exists outside time and space, a cosy cocoon like a family home. 26 luxurious apartments, rooms and suites from 30 to 90 m² achieve a subtle blend of old architecture and contemporary design that extends into the hotel's reception, lounges and lounge bar.

The restaurant "Verchant" is open throughout the week whether it's for a business lunch or dinner with friends or family. With stunning views of the outdoor pool and grounds, come and discover the skills and creativity of our chef in a warm and intimate atmosphere.

The restaurant "La Plage by Verchant", an absolute must for this charming oasis among the vines: an invitation to escape, relax and unwind...You will experience the pleasure of lazing in the sun, with Mediterranean scents wafting by... just 10 minutes from the city center protected from the urban bustle, a unique, exceptional place. The restaurant seating 70, where you can sample cuisine with a southern French flair, at once refined and delicious.

La Plage By Verchant is also a bar, a concept combining: champagne, innovative cocktails, DJ, bands, tapas... a whole programme over the summer season. The appealing 11 x 21 m swimming pool overlooking the vineyard and lined with sunbeds and deckchairs is conducive to that luxuriousness found on all the best beaches.

The beach... among the vines, an ideal place to rest and relax in a deckchair looking out onto the vineyard with a refreshing cocktail in your hand.

Le Spa by Verchant is a cocoon of bliss covering 2,000 sq meters located at the heart of 17 hectares of vineyards, the Domaine de Verchant spa is dedicated to relaxation and wellness and is open Monday to Sunday from 8:30am to 9pm.

Very disappointing stay. I went to the Domaine on number of occasions and though it is rare for me to return to places, Verchant was one I loved and enjoyed every time until this stay. This amazing exclusive place in the past turned into a mass customer experience where client isn’t important any longer, what counts is how many guests you get in (and all the current construction work shows it will get even worse) Certainly the beauty of the domain and how it’s positioned now will attract new clients who enjoy lounge ambiance (without a service ) or people who stay there for one night while they transfer to another places ( many) but this is no longer standard of Relais Chateaux. Place is noisy, impersonal, good for seminars or big parties but not for a stay one gets resourced. The worse, the restaurant La Plage. Overall, service is totally incompetent and unprofessional . Guests are waiting for 40 mins before someone even comes. Guests were without forks and knifes and when staff were called after about 5 mins waiting with warm food, they were given fork from a neighboring table that was used before by people who decided to change their table ! Other guests were seated at the same table (used) with napkins not changed ( clearly visible they were used before!) and obviously no forks and knifes… Bottle of wine proposed to a wrong table where the gentlemen was embarrassed not to get one, spoons for dessert dressed for main course, etc etc. I have not seen such treatment in most simple restaurant…What to say more? Not much, just that I am sad to have lost a place that used to be truly special. All the best.

We only stopped here for a night, on our way to the Alps … but a most enjoyable stop it was. We were met in the car park by the very efficient baggage handler who helped us with our cases and put them on a golf cart. We then headed off to the lovely spa, and upon our return to the main hotel building we checked-in formally and were taken up to our room where the bags were awaiting us. The room itself was quite small but perfectly functional, and with a great outdoor terrace. Sadly, it being winter, we couldn’t make any use of it! There was a full range of amenities, a comfortable bed and a very good shower. Dinner in the evening in Marcelle was preceded by very nice cocktails in the bar area next to the other restaurant. Marcelle itself was wonderful and very much deserving of its Michelin star. Things I didn’t like very much were some of the plastic furniture (including the seats in the room). While it may be very trendy, I found the seating uncomfortable and don’t like the look of it (although, I realise that that is a matter of taste). There were also some problems in the spa area, including very noisy pipes in the mens showers (which positively screamed their displeasure at being used) and a very poorly designed locker area, in which everyone had to work their way into and out of tight corners.

I am writing this now as I thought the General Manager who I contacted on Linked In would value my feedback.I even followed up and asked if he wanted to comment and nothing.This is a beautiful place with great attention to detail.My partner gave the best description by saying she felt unloved.We stayed for 3 nights and as we checked in were given one night option to eat in the gourmet restaurant and to guarantee it we had to let them know quickly.When I went to the Brasserie to check for dinner I was told I hadn’t book there and not only give my room number but phone number as well! If you sit by the pool no-one comes and offers you drinks oh and for room service breakfast you get €5 added to your bill(there’s a first).You may also be there when there’s a business meeting-there were 2 whilst we were there so the WiFi continually goes down.It felt like being on a campus. Such a shame as excellent food and wonderful setting

We really enjoyed our stay there, the hotel is very convenient for remote working. The hotel itself is really nice, just next to the city on hand and almost totally lost in nature on the other hand. The property is surrounded by vineyards and you have to try their wine, it is very good. It is very quiet, and it was a delight. They have really well adapted the security measures due to covid. You can book the indoor swimming pool for One hour. You still manage to taste an amazing menu in you room. We really enjoyed it as well. The chef is really good and everything is done in order to be fully adapted to the in room dining. In room service was good, the staff really try his best in order to make you happy and are really nice. We had the coquelicot appartement and we really loved it. We also did some spa treatment and they were very good Clearly our stay there was a delight

We spent one night in suite #65, enjoying dinner and breakfast ordered with room service (restaurant closed / COVID-19). We have found the place extraordinary and the accommodation perfect. Note that the semi-opened bathroom may not suit all people's need for intimacy, and that the suite is built on different levels, with stairs to walk up and down, something that can be inconvenient as well. Staff was proactive, and food as wine was great. One of the best Relais & Chateaux I have experienced so far. The only reason not to rate it 5* comes from dysfunctional lights in our dressing room. The lights turned on automatically from time to time, all night long, waking us up! Motion detector does not work well at all. I reported it to front desk when checking out, and I wonder whether we were the first ones to experience that failure.

Beautiful domaine with a very spacious spa. I didn’t try the restaurant but room service was quick. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The spa is very clean and the staff is super friendly and they made sure I got my last minute appointment booked. The gym is clean and lots of equipments. It s quiet and relaxing. Just a note: The car park is away from reception so u have to carry your bags all the way

We had a one stay on our way back to Mallorca. The property is stunning and has beautiful grounds which is one of the reasons we chose the hotel as we have a German shepherd. Our room, a suite, was superb and very spacious and well located for reception, restaurant and all the grounds. Reception was efficient , helpful and friendly. Room service was also very good and efficient. So far so good. The problem the hotel has is for a 5 star at these prices details are important. The car park is a distance from the reception and there is no valet parking available and no one present around the car par to help with luggage etc. For me this is a must for a 5 star. The restaurant. The food was very good, however the service, although friendly, was slow. We waited a while before someone asked us what we wanted to drink . I was shocked when we asked for 2 Bloody Marys and we were told that they did not do those types of cocktails! Apparently they only do “classic cocktails”.... that for a top restaurant is ludicrous We then waited for a while for the wine we ordered, so we sat there for at least 30 minutes without getting a drink One last point if your a pet owner. Although you pay a supplement to have your pet stay the hotel does not even provide a dogs bowl in the room. So take yours... I would not discourage anyone from staying here and we may well go back but they need to iron out the small details to be truly 5 star
