New luxury hotel on a vineyard estate in the South of FranceThe beautifully restored 19th century Château de La Redorte in the heart of France’s Languedoc region will open its doors to guests later this month, on 27th May 2016.
The 25-suite hotel is the centrepiece of the Château de La Redorte vineyard estate, set on the picturesque Canal du Midi in the Minervois region, a gloriously untouched part of France.
With prices starting at just €119 (£94) per night for a one-bedroom Classic Suite to €299 (£235) for a Pool Villa, the château is perfect for couples, families or groups who want to experience the authentic South of France.
Recently renovated by Propriétés & Co, the team behind the successful Couvent d’Hérépian boutique hotel, it is one of the grandest examples of a 19th century château built during Languedoc’s first ‘wine rush’.
The château’s faded glamour has been restored and it now boasts an inimitable blend of authenticity and luxury, with the refinement and elegance of chic country-style decoration.
Formal rooms have been transformed into an elegant restaurant, which will offer the best in fresh, local cuisine. There is also a stylish wine bar and a mysterious ‘wine tunnel’, which connects the château to a future olive grove. A luxury ‘Vineyard Spa’ will offer guests treatments using artisan products and outside, a 25-metre plunge pool is framed by the estate’s re-planted Mediterranean gardens.
The Château de La Redorte Estate also includes its own vineyard, which will be brought back to life by master wine-maker Frantz Vènes. The hotel will offer guests a number of unique wine experiences to book, including wine tasting in the unique ‘wine tunnel’ beneath the château and a tour of local vineyards in a Citroën 2CV.
At the heart of the pretty village of La Redorte yet with excellent motorway and high speed rail links, the château is less than 30 minutes from the airport at Carcassonne and within two hours of six other international airports.
The estate offers state-of-the-art facilities for meetings and events for up to 60 people and is the perfect backdrop for a glamorous wedding for up to 90 guests.
