Located in the heart of a vineyard of 10 hectares and at the gates of Montpellier in the South of France this stunning mansion of the sixteenth century offers calm and beauty, just minutes from the centre of Montpellier.
This grand boutique hotel is set on its own wine estate just outside Montpellier, in Castelnau Le Lez. Domaine de Verchant is a mansion made over by Raymond Morel into a luxury retreat with a deliciously decadent spa. The buttercup-yellow building dates from the 14th-century – within the old stone walls and weathered shutters, you’ll find marvellous mosaics and a sharply curated collection of European design classics.
The deliberately intimate hotel maintains a low accommodation capacity to promote optimal service and comfort. 26 luxurious apartments, rooms and suites from 30 to 90 m² achieve a subtle blend of old architecture and contemporary design that extends into the hotel's reception, lounges and lounge bar. The château itself has 9 rooms and suites, 14 are located in outbuildings including 2 rooms for people with reduced mobility; there are also 2 apartments and a detached villa occupying the former forge. Each room is unique and differs in its décor, configuration and facilities.
Chef Damien Cousseau is behind Le Verchant, the elegant but unfussy gourmet restaurant. The restaurant is open throughout the week whether it's for a business lunch or dinner with friends or family. With stunning views of the outdoor pool and grounds, come and discover the skills and creativity of our chef Damien Cousseau. Choose from the seasonal menus created by our chef where the emphasis is on regional produce and enhanced by a warm, intimate atmosphere.
Spa & Pool
The sprawling stone 2,000sq m spa has eight serene treatment rooms, an indoor relaxation garden, sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi and gym. It's something of a mod marvel, designed by artists Diane Rauscher-Kennedy and Jean Leccia; it's decked out in glass, stainless steel and marble with water walls and geometric mosaics.
The large (11 x 21m) free-form heated pool is encircled by lush lawns, pine and palm trees, and lots of vines; it has a Jacuzzi too. There's a second, slightly smaller outdoor pool closer to the hotel and a heated indoor hydrotherapy pool in the spa.
