In summer, vignerons drop by for Monday tastings – followed by a special dinner: book to join in. This eco-leaning wine estate has a mulberry-lined drive and a real family atmosphere: he is quiet and gentle, she energetic and charming. In the old barn, bedrooms have soft-coloured walls, some beds on mezzanines (no windows but glazed doors), pretty shower rooms. Old honey-coloured beams protect the dining room – a dream that gives onto the terrace and rows of vines beyond. Cool off in the saltwater pool, or wild-swim in the river Hérault. Ideal for those interested in good wine, peacefulness and proper French country cuisine.
