Luxury hotel in MONTPELLIER - south of france
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 cosy cocoon like a family home" Chantal and Pierre Mestre. Over five years, the new owners renovated this unique place with a passion to transform 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", which had been built in the heart of the unique grounds. 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.
