The  vineyard extends to seven hundred acres; comprising parkland, over 60 acres of vines and vast expanses of wild garrigue on the Massif de Fontfroide, accessed by numerous tracks.Our three gîtes(cottages) are all furnished to a high standard, accommodating between two and eight guests each on weekly lets from Saturday to Saturday

book directFrom Easter until the end of August, rooms are available for Bed & Breakfast(Chambres d’Hotes). This is  in a separate recently renovated house forming part of the courtyard of the château. It was formerly the accommodation for itinerant grape pickers.
wineThe wines of Corbières are predominantly red made from Syrah, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Cinsault grapes. Some years ago these tended to be quite rustic wine. These days with skilful care and modern techniques the wines are more elegant and rich, capturing the flavours of the garrigues. These wines are recommended in the Guide Hachette des Vins de France 2014
