Located in the heart of the Herault Valley in Languedoc in the South of France, Domaine de St. Ferreol offers luxurious holiday accommodation for rental for all the family.
The property dates back to 822 but prior to that there were first Greek and thereafter Roman villas on the site. In 2006 Chateau de St. Ferréol recommenced making fine wines and now holds regular wine tastings for guests.
Set in the midst of vines, the ancient Domaine buildings lie in a 35 acre estate, comprising of 2 acres of wooded parkland, 1 km of riverbank, a bamboo park and natural water gardens and ponds. The natural habitat attracts a wide variety of wildlife , great for birdwatching enthusiasts !
St. Ferreol has currently been lovingly restored, retaining many of the original features. and now offers 3 , 2 and 1 bedroomed individual holiday villas for rental all tastefully furnished with antique furniture maintaining a traditional Languedoc character. The luxury bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens are furnished to the highest standard, ensuring that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
For your relaxation there is a large swimming pool (13 x 6 m) with Roman end steps set in 3/4 acre of lawns, mature trees and parkland. It is bordered by a century old 2 metre high wall and a dis-used small canal over which there are panoramic views down to the river.
As the sun begins to set it is a wonderful experience to sit with a glass of wine and watch the swallows skim over and sip the water.
Set in the shady wooded parkland is a children’s play area with swings, a slide, a climbing frame, sand pit and table tennis, a great place for children to congregate in the evenings , leaving parents free to do some well earned wine tasting!
The whole family can also relax and unwind by playing a game of traditional boules, badminton, volleyball or croquet on the estate lawns.This is an excellent holiday base from which to explore this beautiful region of the South West of France and Northern Spain.
If you enjoy golf, horse-riding, tennis, fishing, canoeing or simply soaking up the sun on the glorious Mediterranean beaches, all are close by.
Being close to the sea you can find a wealth of mouthwatering fresh fish and shellfish (especially Bouzigues Oysters ) or visit the vibrant cafes, bars and open air restaurants of Pezenas playing jazz and live music long into the summer evenings.
We are happy to advise and help with wine selection and frequently organise visits to local vineyards where you can sample some of the most delicious regional reds, whites and roses.
