Stayed with Anne & James at the wonderful Domaine for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing time there. The house has been beautifully renovated with very well appointed rooms, and the grounds are stunning. It is certainly a luxurious B&B with great facilities, and the fact that it is a working vineyard (with award winning wines) makes it an even more unique and special place to stay. The hosts are welcoming and lovely people with great knowledge about the area and wine, and Anne's catering is fantastic - both at breakfast time and for the evening meals which we enjoyed. We took my father in law for a surprise trip for his 80th birthday and she even made him a birthday cake! It was great fun to sample the estate's own wine which had been selected to go with the various dishes and talk to James about the production. We can also highly recommend the wine tasting! So much so, that like other reviewers we returned home with cases of fantastic wine.
The Domaine is very well located for exploring the coast, Languedoc wine country, and some lovely towns and villages. We tended to go out and about in the morning and then laze around in the sun and swim in the beautiful pool in the afternoon. We really felt like we had the run of our own luxury country pad with great service when we wanted it. The house is nested in the middle of the vineyards surrounded by mature woodland so it makes for a very quiet and relaxing escape from the buzz of the Languedoc summer. Would definitely return!
