If you are looking for a truly special place to stay in the Languedoc, check out the Château Les Carrasses, a 19th century wine domaine which has been restored as a boutique winery and luxury self-catering estate. The exquisite gardens, infinity pool, floodlit clay tennis court, boulodrome and barbecue area, conservatory, orchard and olive grove will enchant every guest. The bistro and bar serve Mediterranean tapas alongside the best regional wines and classic cocktails – to be enjoyed around the pool, in the salon, the tasting rooms, or on any one of several terraces.

Luxurious self-catering accommodation furnished in an elegant French style consists of 28 suites, apartments and villas, many with panoramic views, private gardens and pool, and all fashioned from the original 19th century buildings. Each property is individually interior designed, though all share a chic French take on tradition-meets-modernity. Beds are large and comfortable and bathrooms have large tubs and/or showers, elegant bathrobes and Fragonard toiletries. Salons offer Wi-Fi, flat screen TV/DVD, and iPod, fully charged with carefully selected playlists. Every property has a fully-equipped kitchen, and all are air-conditioned. There are nightly and weekly rates, the latter being more economical during the high season.

What to do around the area: Beziers and Narbonne are the largest towns close to the chateau and there you will find many palaces, churches, and fortifications dating back to the Middle Ages and the Roman times. The beach is only 20 minutes away if you prefer a seaside diversion. For most people coming to the Languedoc, relaxing with a book by a pool or in a garden, or going on long hikes and bicycle rides are the most enjoyable ways to spend a holiday. Take advantage of the solitude of the French countryside to slow down. The chateau is the perfect place to get some peace and quiet, while at the same time, savouring the gastronomic delights of southern France.
