We started with a tour of the Chateau. The guide was perfect! She conducted the tour in both French and English. Her knowledge of the history of the Chateau and every nuance of its holdings made the tour enjoyable for my visiting relatives and my children!

To visit a still lived in chateau was a very interesting experience. Decoration, furniture and the buildings themselves span many centuries. Best part of the visit though were the gardens: palm trees, coconut trees bamboos etc. A French garden, an English version, the olive trees alley, the vineyard. The wine they bottle on the premises add to the interest of the visit. We were late in the day but were received like "royalty". Madeleine, our host, took us for a private tour and was available afterwards for a quick wine-tasting session. All this within a few kms from Place de la Comedie (15 euro cab ride or tram+20 min walk). Comfortable shoes, your camera, 3 hours and your taste buds is all you need ;-)

nice walk in the garden with children. we were happy because of the strawberries and rasperries we ate with the permission of the hostess. the gardener Christophe showed us the turtle, frog and fishes. we spent easily 1h in this beautiful garden and have to come back to visit the chateau which look interesting. No time to taste the wine but we bought some.

Call ahead to reserve a tour time and ask for directions. We didn't have a car, and found out it was much easier to reach than we realized. Originally we took a tram, then a bus, then walked for 20 minutes. Heading back to Montpellier, we walked 15-20 minutes to reach the mall & found our way back easily from there.
We would love to come back when the trees & flowers are in bloom, but it was still lovely to walk around the grounds enjoying the gardens. The home was lovely, especially the tapestries depicting the stories of Moses. Our tour guide, Madeleine, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She had answers for all our questions! We had a lovely chat with her after the tour and wine tasting - in French, English & German.

I planned a trip to Flaugergues for a surprise for my husband. I had booked lunch but it was very busy and service was a little slow. It s a restaurant du marche. 3 choices per course and when they are gone, they are gone. At 1.10pm our first choice was already sold out. We chose again and the food was very good. Simple but well cooked and tasty. Unfortunately they has run out of bread but we managed.

After lunch we looked around the gardens. The formal French garden was comparatively small but nice. The English garden was a bit wild and non descript for my liking. We then viewed the house. We were shown around by the owner, Mme Colbert who was charming but you need to speak French or you will not understand much. The house is quite small but very interesting and despite the fact that the family still live there and use it all, it does feel original and unspoilt.

Note. The only toilets we saw were in the restaurant. That was closed when the house tour finished so there did not seem to be toilets to use before leaving.

All in all an enjoyable afternoon though.
