A working wine estate in southern France where the picturesque turreted chateau and former wine cellars, stables and barns have been converted into luxury self-catering suites and villas.

With the atmosphere of a stylish country club, families can enjoy the privacy of their own villa and garden (some also have pools) whilst also having access to the estate’s sports and recreational facilities.

Suites and villas retain many original features and have been stylishly decorated in fresh colours and furnished with a mix of antiques and modern pieces. Kitchens are state of the art and very well equipped – ideal for preparing family meals after shopping at the local markets – and bathrooms are sleek and modern.

An exceptional destination for families, there is no end of healthy, wholesome outdoor activities to enjoy. On site, guests can help themselves to complimentary bikes to explore the vineyards and grounds, play tennis, volleyball and petanque, or swim in the heated pool. A little further afield is the beautiful Canal du Midi, sandy beaches are only half an hour away and there are several theme parks nearby to keep the younger family members entertained.

In July and August there is also an excellent Kids Club for 4 to 12 year olds, with lots of engaging activities on offer. Parents can use the off duty time to relax in the conservatory with a book from the library, take a guided tour of the vineyards or indulge in a wine tasting session.

For guests who prefer not to cook while on holiday, there is a brasserie serving fresh, seasonal Mediterranean cuisine and well equipped barbecue station that is perfect for a summer cookout, and barbecue packs are available. Meals can also be ordered to take away from the brasserie and pizza deliveries can be ordered in summer.

Activities for kids

At the property

Kids Club

The club (open in July and August) welcomes kids five days a week, Monday to Friday, and is run by qualified, friendly, and bilingual staff (French/English). The Kids Club is open to children aged 4 to 12. Please note it is not included in the price of the accommodation and space is limited, so it is recommended to book in advance.

Kids Dinners and Parties

From Monday to Friday in July and August the French Wine Estate hosts a supervised kids dinner party in the evenings. With a menu that is both healthy and fun to eat, the dinner party lets kids get to know each other and allows parents to take their time over a leisurely meal later in the evening. Kids dinner is served from 6pm and needs to be booked in advance.

A Day at the Beach

French Wine Estate Serignan Beach with The Little Voyager

There are many beaches in the region so why not pack a picnic and some beach gear and spend the day building sandcastles, jumping in the waves and relaxing in the sun? Just west of Sérignan, Valras (about a 35-minute drive) is a traditional beach town with lots of restaurants and shops. It is very child friendly – with a good playground on the sand, a drop-in children’s club and a port to wander around. The beach itself stretches for 4km and has plenty of water sports and leisure facilities. It’s very safe for swimming too.

Further Afield

Cruising the Canal du Midi

The peaceful banks of the tree-lined Canal du Midi are only a 5-minute drive (or a 10-minute bike ride) from the estate. It’s the perfect place to stroll along the path or go for an afternoon cruise on the water.

Water sports

French Wine Estate Costal Scene with The Little Voyager

With its perfect Mediterranean climate, the estate's immediate area is a great spot for water sports, both in the nearby Mediterranean Sea and in the region’s lakes and rivers. The nearby Thau Lagoon is known for being a calm spot with warm water, and a perfect place to take younger kids.

Golf

There are 4 courses less than an hour’s drive away from the estate, and two sets of golf clubs are available for guests to use (subject to availability).

Visiting Wineries

French Wine Estate Vineyards with The Little Voyager

In addition to the wine tastings the estate hosts throughout the year, there are also hundreds of wineries to visit nearby. Faugeres, the Corbieres, the Minervois, Picpoul de Pinet, La Clape and the Terrasses du Larzac are all only a short drive away.

Day Trips to Narbonne, Beziers, or Montpellier

French Wine Estate Narbonne with The Little Voyager

Narbonne (30 mins away), is a small city on the Canal de la Robine, and is great place to visit for a few hours. Les Halles, a large market, offers lots of delicious foods to try, as well as a few bars to sit in for a drink. The small city is also famous for its unfinished cathedral, the Cathédrale Saint-Just-et-Saint-Pasteur – only its choir was ever built, and still towers above the city today.

Slightly larger than Narbonne, Beziers (30 mins away) is one of the oldest towns in France, and has been inhabited since at least 575 BCE. Every year, it hosts a bullfighting festival in mid-August with lots of street food stalls and live music. It’s also known for its impressive 13th-century cathedral, sitting on a steep rock face over the city.

Languedoc’s biggest city, Montpellier (1 hour 15 mins away) is the region’s cultural hub, and is a great place for museums, cafes, bars, and shopping. There are also lots of family-friendly activities, including ice skating, bowling, or visiting the aquarium.

 

The Area

The Hérault region of the Languedoc offers an altogether more tranquil and authentic version of southern France than one finds at the seaside resorts. Here, medieval castles perch on rocky crags and rivers meander gently through lush valleys.

Undulating vines and farmland surround sleepy villages, where family bakeries turn out fabulous breads and afternoon activities may be limited to a game of boules under the shade of a plane tree.

There are plenty of historic towns and villages – most notably the market towns of Pézenas and Béziers as well as Narbonne – and the pretty Canal du Midi winds its way peacefully through the area.

The stunning Haut Languedoc Parc is located 40 minutes northwest of the Estate, with mountains, rivers, gorges, valleys and lakes, the scenery is spectacularly varied and begs to be discovered, and winery tours are always a popular way to spend a day or two when in the area.

The coast is about 30 minutes away with beautiful sandy beaches and inland lagoons which are used to farm delicious oysters.
