Rent a castle
Welcome to your fairytale vacation!
At the luxurious Saint Martin de la Garrigue, a beautiful renaissance château in Southern France, you’ll find everything you need for an idyllic, peaceful and much-deserved break.
Located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, this mesmerizing castle is a slice of paradise, which you can now rent and enjoy in all its glory. The secluded and picturesque estate spans a total of 420 acres, including 170 acres of vineyards. It has its very own distillery and brand, named AOC Coteaux du Languedoc, which produces around 300,000 bottles of exclusive red and white wine per year. All made on-site. The wine-cellar on the premises is about 40,000 square feet.
The first impression that strikes our visitors is the estate’s sense of tranquility and its harmonious atmosphere. Our beautiful chapel, which dates back to the year 987, is by all accounts the perfect venue for a fairytale wedding ceremony.
We care deeply about the estate’s environmental profile and will always work to respect and nurture both the natural surroundings, culture and legacy. You can either rent this enchanting holiday-destination to find peace of mind, or invite your loved ones for all sorts of memorable celebrations. The opportunities are almost endless. Visitors can, among other things, enjoy the serenity of the giant pool, the invigorating energy of the tennis-court or simply stroll through the beautiful parks, gardens and olive groves, accompanied by strikingly beautiful butterflies.
Alongside the pathways, you’ll find both fountains and a fish-pond filled with carps, which undoubtedly gives the estate a royal feel to it. The castle itself, which consists of roughly 10.000 square feet of living area, is exquisitely decorated with high ceilings, acclaimed interior designs and unique art. We have made it our top priority to combine historic elegance with modern and tasteful décor. The estate has several secluded suites and luxurious living quarters.
Appealing features include a music-room equipped with a grand piano, as well as lounging areas, fire places, dining rooms and gorgeous patios. A daily maid-service and breakfast made by our private chef is included. If you’d like to have kitchen-staff available for every meal, that can of course be arranged. Our chefs focus on local produce and will often incorporate herbs and fruits from the garden in their exquisite dishes.
We look forward to welcoming mature and respectful guests who cherish good wine and the soothing atmosphere at Saint Martin de la Garrigue. This is neither a bed & breakfast, nor a location for extravagant and excessive partying.
It is our goal to be able to tailor each guest’s stay to provide them with an extraordinary experience.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region is one of the biggest wine-producing areas on the planet, proven by the fact that it alone account for 5% of the world’s overall wine production. Apart from the fact that the castle has its very own distillery, where you can enjoy both tours and tastings-sessions, there are many other activities, adventures and sights to experience in close proximity.
The most notable feature is that there are several bicycles available on the premises, which gives you and your guests the opportunity to see the sights the “good old fashioned way”. Whether you choose to ride a bike or drive, the castle is located 5 minutes from the beach, where you can enjoy the sights, sounds and feel of the exquisite Mediterranean ocean. Nearby you’ll also find the small town of Béziers, one of the oldest cities in France. This charming little treasure is filled with a rich history of monuments and museums, in addition to various little shops, restaurants, boulangeries and markets.
The closest big city is Montpellier, which is a 30-minute drive away. This historic and beautiful venue is a vibrant and popular tourist attraction, primarily known for its wine. The choice is yours. You can explore all that the region has to offer, or simply enjoy the peaceful serenity of the estate. Both options are highly recommendable and it will either way be a memorable experience.
