About Maison du Jardinier

This beautiful and authentic Château is a 19th Century Wine Domaine in the Languedoc, South of France, extensively restored as a luxury self-catering estate, comprising a unique collection of luxurious self-catering residences, on site restaurant, winery and first class hotel facilities.

Stay in the grandeur of the main château in one of five fully-equipped suites and apartments boasting views over the vines or the Château courtyard and the conservatory. Alternatively, enjoy the seclusion of the romantic Gardener’s cottage, with private pool, garden and vineyard views.

This two bedroom villa sits in a quiet, secluded corner of the estate with, on the ground floor, an open plan kitchen/living/dining area and a bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom. A second bathroom serves the mezzanine which provides two 90cm twin beds that can also be made up as a king size.

Outside is a generous South/West-facing terrace and garden with a private heated pool, outdoor dining area with barbecue, sun loungers and stunning views across the vineyards. Total living space 55m2.

The magnificent infinity pool (20m x 8m), heated from April to October features an inviting submerged beach area for lounging. Poolside service is available throughout the summer.

To the west of the estate is an outstanding social spot – a large barbecue station with tables and chairs and all the equipment needed for an easy cook out. Beside the barbecue area are two boules courts, where you’re free to while away a couple of lazy hours.

Newly create and very popular mini farm with goats, chickens, ducks, sheep, pigs, rabbits, a donkey and a pony!

In the main courtyard is a magnificent conservatory, La Serre, rumoured to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel. This lovely structure houses comfortable chairs and a take one / leave one library, making it an ideal place to relax.

Location and Map

This marker is for indication purpose only

The serene, tree-lined Canal du Midi is a 5-minute drive or 10-minute cycle ride from the Château. Spend a leisurely afternoon along the cycle paths or cruising on a hired canal boat. Alternatively enjoy dinner with a wine tasting while someone else does the sailing for you

There are four golf courses within an hours’ drive and the Château has two sets of clubs for guests’ use, subject to availability.

The Château is just a few minutes from Capestang, Quarante and Puisserguier. These charming winemaking villages offer all the necessary services – supermarkets, doctors, markets and countless wine domaines plus a choice of restaurants and cafés, from upmarket canal-side bistros to friendly village bars.

The closest village to the Château is the picturesque canal port of Capestang, where barges line the quays and cafés and restaurants animate the main square.

The immediate locality offers a huge range of recreational options. The golden beaches at Serignan and Portiragnes are a 25-minute drive. Countless vineyards and markets offer the very best local produce. And on days when you feel like something a little more urban, you are 20 minutes from the city of Béziers, while Montpellier, France’s ‘most exciting city’, is less than an hour away.

Languedoc’s beaches tend to be huge – long and deep, with fine pale sand and warm, clear blue water. Beach clubs spring up each year along many of region’s beaches, with bars and restaurants, lounger service and even massages. Many transform into laid-back clubs in the evening, with the latest in relaxed beach sounds from international and home-grown DJs.

The Languedoc’s river and lake beaches offer a lovely alternative to the coast, particularly on the traffic-heavy Saturdays in July and August. The beaches around the Thau lagoon- famous mainly for its oyster farming – are a nice alternative to the large sea beaches, with always-calm, and slightly warmer water – great for younger kids.
