We stayed last summer in this spectacular chateau, in the very heart of Southern France. The castle is tucked away in a truly royal estate, with a huge park with green lawns and vineyards. The rooms are charming and reflect the historic surroundings. The lady of the house runs this sophisticated breakfast with with charm and dedication. We felt like being guests at a rich friend´s house. We enjoyed the homemade breakfast at the terrace with view of century-old trees and the winter garden. The B&B has it´s own outdoor swimming pool in the middle of the park.
The chateau is 10 minutes drive away from the charming city of Pezenas, filled with fantastic restaurants and art galleries. The mediaval monastry-cum-village of Sant Guillem is 30 minutes away, while the beaches of the inner-sea of Theau (famous for seafood) and Mediterranean are also only 20-30 minutes away.
And the best part is that the estate makes it´s own wine, red and while, ranging from very acceptable table wines through top-notch reserves. A free tasting with the head-sommelier is part of the deal. We wined up trying them all... And bought most of them.
Overall, a very family-friendly environment, close to all the action, yet with a feel of being far away from civilization. An excellent value for money: your own castle for less than 80 euros per night... Highly recommended!More
