Château les Carrasses

QUARANTE, LANGUEDOC, France
2 - 8 Persons
€€€ (350-500)

When former management consultant, Karl and his wife Anita stumbled upon Chateau les Carrasses in 2008, all that was left was crumbling buildings and a winery that hadn’t been used in 20 years. Now the chateau has been splendidly renovated to house stylish apartments and villas with an array of facilities that make it the perfect family getaway. Sleeping from 2 to 8 people, the 30 suites, apartments and villas (10 with their own private pool) are spread across the beautifully tended grounds of the chateau where honeysuckle, jasmine and roses abound. The chateau is located just a few minutes away from the charming winemaking villages Capestang, Quarante and Puisserguier. Here you can find everything you need to complete your family holiday: supermarkets, doctors, farmers markets and countless wine domaines plus a choice of restaurants and cafés.

kids will love

  • The Kid’s club: set amongst the ancient pine trees surrounded by a variety of plants, baby lizards, bird and crickets, there is plenty to see, do and explore. They’ll be recycling of a wealth of materials into wine bottle xylophones and beer bottle top lagerphones, huge huge cardboard castles, giant people, dinosaurs, funny costumes and playing games of every imaginable shape & size
  • The main heated infinity pool or the private pool that comes with some of the apartments/villas
  • Cycling (bikes can be borrowed for the whole family for free) or walking in the beautiful 10 acres of vineyard and woodlands around the chateau. You can take along a picnic basket (the hotel can prepare it for you with everything you need, from sandwiches to salads and fresh fruit)
  • Playing a game of boules under the pine trees
  • Spending a day at the beautiful white beaches (30 min drive from the Chateau)
  • Having a takeaway pizza night (pizzas can be delivered by the hotel restaurant)
  • Taking a boat ride along the Midi or visiting the Musée parc des dinosaures in Mézes, a park created in the middle of the pine forest and dotted with reproductions of dinosaurs and remains of prehistoric animals found in the area
  • The special children’s menu with delicious ice cream for dessert

you'll love

  • Having an aperitif in the evening sun, while the kids enjoy their own little dinner party or take part in the mini-disco
  • Enjoying delicious Mediterranean cuisine and brasserie classics at the relaxed Brasserie or on the lower terrace. They work with super fresh seasonal local products and of course there is a fabulous wine list (including wines from the Chateau’s vineyard of course
  • Choosing one of the books from the delightful library in the magnificent conservatory (said to be the design handiwork of Monsieur Eiffel himself) and on one of the sofas with a good glass of red wine
  • Working up a sweat during a game of tennis or beach volleyball
  • Doing a bit of tasting in the Wine bar and stocking up for the wine cellar at home of course
  • Having a relaxed barbecue next to the boules court – anyone up for a game?
  • Visit the nearby picturesque village of Pezenas, where Molière lived a few years and produced some of his most important comedies.
  • Taking part in the Château’s ‘insider’ itineraries (available for groups of 4 or more): From cycling tours and cultural visits to truffle-hunting, antiquing and cooking, these itineraries, hosted by local experts, provide a unique experience

Good to know

  • You will need a car to explore the area
  • All pools have an alarm, but only the main pool is gated
  • Just about anything is possible: think in-room massages, personal trainer sessions, yoga, cooking classes, guided vineyard walk and wine-tasting workshops. Just ask!
  • Some of the residences were designed with families with young children in mind: all on one level and some with ground-floor enclosed terraces. A range of baby and toddler essentials is also available on request. The Chateau can also provide stair guards, bed guards and baby monitors
  • Daily cleaning is not included in the base price, though is available at an extra charge

Members say

“This chateau estate combines laid-back luxury with impeccable services that almost make it feel like a private club: The restaurant, the beautiful swimming pool overlooking the vineyards, the kids club, beautifully decorated apartments and plenty to do for everyone in the family. Les Carrasses is also a respected winery, which (in our opinion) produces an excellent white that can be tasted in hotel’s wine bar or at home.”
