Have you seen that film where the actors stand in a dark room, someone opens the window shutters for them and suddenly they see paradise?
That is our home and your new home! Rieutort is not a hotel. It is a home open to you and where you will feel welcome.
Château Rieutort is an elegant 18th century wine domain situated on the banks of the Herault River in Languedoc-Roussillon. It is surrounded by 2,5 ha park and 30 ha of our own vineyards and it backs onto the domaine's own winery. This delightful setting, a picture of charm and peace, is an ideal spot for a stay in one of our gites or bed and breakfast rooms and suites.
... The château is located in the immediate vicinity of numerous leisure and cultural activities: just 10 minutes drive from the picturesque town of Pezenas with 115 historical edifices and 40 min drive from Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert – one of the most beautiful villages in France. The Mediterranean Sea is 45 minutes away, and even nearer Lac du Salagou and the Etang de Thau with the attractive port of Sète.
You could spend the whole day in the château relaxing with a glass of our Rose by our naturist or textile pool, on your private terrace or choose from the wide variety of beautiful sandy beaches in the area for regular bathers and naturist alike. A horse riding centre is only 10 minutes away, and golf, windsurfing, rock climbing, canyoning and canoeing are also close at hand. With a 45 minutes drive you are in the mountains at an altitude of 1200 m. Other amenities at the Château include billiard, table tennis, table football as well as other games which are at your disposal. You can cross the vineyard to the Hérault River, where you will be able to swim or fish (please bring your own rod) and where we can organise picnics for you.
In our winery next door to the Château, our partner, Blanville, produces high quality wines (in particular Château Haut-Blanville) which are regularly rated amongst the best brands in Languedoc. Should you be interested, Isabelle Bely, our sommelier, will invite you to take part in our initiation programme of wine-making and wine tasting, including a visit of the winery (included in the price of your accommodation).
In the evening you can benefit from our table d`hôtes (on week ends, on request) and you will be able to finish off the day relaxing with a glass or two of wine from our vineyard. You will also find many good restaurants within easy reach of the Château.
With our two double-bedded guest rooms and two suites, Château Rieutort offers accommodation of charm, a true haven of intimacy and serenity, in a luxurious yet relaxed environment. Each room looks on to the park and has its own private bathroom/WC. The largest suite has a 100 square metre private terrace with a spectacular view of the Cevennes and our vineyards.
Breakfast (included in the price) is served between 9:00 and 10:00, and the most difficult choice will be whether to take it in the park, beside the swimming pool, in the dining room or in your own bed. Tax de sejour - 0,60 € per person per night is an extra charge. WiFi is available for your use. Smoking in the chateau is not permitted.
Château Rieutort also has two, self contained, two bedroom gites (available from June 2013) and more gites planned in the future. The existing gites were created above the stables of the Château and they benefit from large terraces with a panoramic view of the vines. The gites are air conditioned and newly refurbished. Each of them has two double bedded bedrooms, bathroom, toilet, kitchen and lounge space. Linen and towels are provided and WiFi is available for your use.
Can you think of a better place for some quality days or weeks? Why don't you come with a group of friends? We can accept up to 22 guests and further gites are planned next season.
We can usually arrange private airport transfers from Montpellier or Beziers Airports although your own car or car hire is recommended.
