Chateau Les Carrasses is now open for guests. This is a fairy-tale castle in a magical setting in the heart of Languedoc Southern France with villas, apartments and suites for guests in the center of a wine domain.
So why am I writing about the competition? Well, because I cannot compete and I will strongly recommend Chateau Les Carrasses to clients wanting somewhere special to stay when they are here in Languedoc.
Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of what we offer at Villa Roquette, we give fantastic value, full services, King-Size beds, air conditioning, Pool and many many extras – we are a five star B&B and have three well appointed apartments in a classic Maison de Maitre of the 19th century, but it is like comparing 10 Downing Street to the Houses of Parliament, or the White House to the Capitol Building.
We offer a swimming pool for guests, Chateau les Carrasses has private pools with their individual units. We offer breakfast in the dining room or on the terrace, they have a top quality restaurant and terraces looking across thousands of acres of vineyards. We offer wine from local vineyards with our evening meals, they make their own wine in their state-of-the-art winery. I could go on (a lot).
I am really happy that this superb place has opened just a few miles from us, it puts Languedoc on the map for quality tourism – it also encourages me to put the heating system in for our pool, finish the roof and bar area for our barbecue, arrange special green-fees for the golf club just 5 minutes from us and a host of other things I plan for next year.
I am talking with the owner of Chateau les Carrasses about organising wine tours and tasting events. I certainly will be going to their restaurant.
