Domaine de Verchant

Domaine de Verchant

*****

This grand boutique hotel is set on its own wine estate just outside Montpellier, in Castelnau Le Lez. Domaine de Verchant is a mansion made over by Raymond Morel into a luxury retreat with a deliciously decadent spa. The buttercup-yellow building dates from the 14th-century – within the old stone walls and weathered shutters, you’ll find marvellous mosaics and a sharply curated collection of European design classics.

Highlights:

  • Just outside Montpellier – the perfect country and city getaway

  • Amazing spa with views of the neighbouring vineyards

  • Stylish mansion makeover by designer Raymond Morel

Smith extra

A bottle of red or white from the hotel vineyard, and a 10 per cent discount on spa treatments and massages

In the know

Also need to know:

Pets can come too, for €20 a day.There’s an indulgent spa with a hammam, indoor heated pool that looks past its Bisazza mosaic onto the vineyards, and a personal trainer ready to send you jogging around the gardens. Couples can book the private area and have a steam room, balneotherapy bath and terrace to themselves. It's €20 a day to use the spa, unless you're staying in a Junior Suite or have a treatment booked.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

This review is taken from our guidebook, Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection: France.

‘Oooh!’ say Mrs Smith and I, simultaneously, involuntarily and somewhat ridiculously, as our cab crunches up Domaine de Verchant’s serpentine drive. Some 17 hectares of vine-striped fields, now looking rusty and golden in the weak autumn sun, with a cluster of sandy-stoned farm buildings in the lawned and leafy centre – it looks like the perfect setting for a weekend of wine-splashed rural escapism. Which is handy, because that’s what we have planned.

Verchant has been here since 1582, when a dying bishop hand

Dining information

Restaurant:

The Pourcel twins are behind the elegant but unfussy gourmet restaurant. There’s a bien-être menu of grilled fish and so on, providing gastronomic back-up for the good work done in the hotel spa, but those on a more gluttonous track needn’t worry – there’s an à la carte offering of delicious Mediterranean cuisine.

Top table:

In warm weather, sit outside by the pool. Indoors, ask for a table by the arched glass door so you can gaze out at your luxuriantly landscaped surroundings.

Room service:

There’s a 24-hour menu of light bites and drinks.

Hotel bar:

A bright space with mosaic flooring, square grey tables and egg-shaped swivel chairs in olive-green leather, the bar is the perfect place to test-taste Verchant’s own wines, as well as sampling the fine single-malt selection.
