The beautifully restored 19th century Chateau de La Redorte in the heart of France’s Languedoc region will open its doors to guests later this month.
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.
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 chateau’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 Chateau de La Redorte Estate also includes its own vineyard, which will be brought back to life by master wine-maker Frantz Vènes.
