We are located between the Pyrenees Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea in the heart of the Languedoc region, famous for its cultural heritage and wine-growing. The Cité de Carcassonne (the tremendous medieval gallo-roman walled city build on a rocky spur) and the Canal du Midi, both included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997, are just 4 km away.
The Abbeys of Fontfroide, Lagrasse and Saint Hilaire are close to the estate. The vineyards of the Corbieres and Minervois dominate the area, while highlighting the famous cathar castles. In 2005, a red wine from Minervois was awarded as 'The Best Wine in the World' !!
