Client Comments

My three generation family of six (ages 11 - 75) stayed at the Domaine for a heavenly week late June, 2012.  From the moment we arrived at the Domaine's lovely arched entrance to our reluctant departure to take the TGV to Paris we were enthralled with both the accommodations and the surrounding area.  The Domaine is even more beautiful than the impressive photographs.  We felt we were living in a fairy tale castle - but one that had a beautiful modern pool and comfortable and handsome furnishings - many of which are impressive antiques. The gardens and pool overlook miles and miles of vineyards and the setting is magical.  We rushed home from our daily outings to be there for our evening swim and alfresco dinner before enjoying the glorious sunset and twinkling lights of the small villages beyond.  The area is full of intriguing road trips such as Montpellier, Sete and Carcassonne, but we loved neighboring medieval Pezenas and returned there several times between other adventures. All of us highly recommend the Domaine and are hoping to return one day.  Constance Cowen, June 2012
