A verdant setting on the doorstep of Montpellier. "The venue has all the qualities of "otherworldliness," a place that disconnects you from the world without making you a foreigner. The Domaine de Verchant is a land unto itself, a place that exists outside time and space, a cozy cocoon-like a family home" Chantal and Pierre Mestre. Over five years, the new owners renovated this unique place with a passion for transforming it into a luxurious hotel complete with a sublime spa in the heart of a restored vineyard estate.
1582, a key date in the history of the Estate - On 1 February 1582, the Bishop of Montpellier gave Pierre Verchant an estate, which acquired his name and remained in the family for the next two centuries. On 23 September 1878, Jules Leenhardt acquired the estate and manor house inspired by the "Montpellier Follies," built in the unique grounds' heart. He paid particular attention to these grounds, even calling on eminent Swiss landscape architects of the time: the Bühler brothers.
A picturesque setting with old stone buildings, a contemporary gem - 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.
