Overview & Gallery
    Occupying 45 hectares of prime Mediterranean real estate in the South of France, the elegant Belle Epoque vineyard estate of Domaine de la Mandoune has been brought back to life - and transformed in to 30 beautiful properties. 

    As with all Propriétés & Co developments, the aim here was to retain the heritage and essence of the original estate, while infusing it with modern facilities and a refined Mediterranean ambiance. Local craftsmen worked side-by-side with architects and designers to create a tranquil, stylish resort steeped in the elegance of a by-gone age. 

    A truly unique location on the 'Etang de Thau' (a Mediterranean lagoon) gives residents spectacular views of vineyards, lines of oyster beds splayed across shimmering waters and pretty 'Mont St Claire' rising from the bustling seaside town of Sète in the distance. From here, you're a short drive away from the charming port town of Marseillan, the delicious seafood of Bouzigues, miles of sandy beaches and even Montpellier, France's 'favourite' city. Or closer to home, just stroll down to the excellent Le St Barth restaurant located where the estate meets the water's edge. It offers superbly fresh seafood, great wine and the region's most spectacular views. 

    The Languedoc-Roussillon is still one of France's best-kept secrets - blissfully untouched by the over-development of Spain or the garish 'bling' and high prices of the Côte d'Azur. This is still a region of workingwine villages, with endless sandy beaches, bustling fishing ports and some of Europe's most picturesque countryside - dotted with medieval castles.

    Discover France's best kept secret

    Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine, some of France's best wines and endless sandy beaches, the Languedoc-Roussillon has long been one of the country's best-kept secrets. Development came relatively late to the area, ensuring that its traditional wine-making villages, medieval towns and verdant, rolling countryside haven't been blighted by the over-development seen in nearby Provence and Spain.

    The town of Marseillan, just down the road from the Domaine de la Mandoune, is a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike, with its charming port bustling with sail and fishing boats and lined on both sides with bistros that spill out onto the quay. The restaurants here offer everything from the freshest oysters and mussles to more complex fare at the 'Château du Port' - to fun and relaxed retro meals at 'Delicatessen'.

    A region steeped in history

    The beaches and bustling fishing villages of the Mediterranean are only a short drive away, as are dramatic Cathar Castles perched on rocky outcrops and that riot of fairytale spires and towers that is Carcassonne Castle.

    Superb wineries abound - some of France's top-rated wines now come from the Languedoc region, which is reputed to be one of the world's most exciting wine-growing areas. Languedoc also offers excellent cuisine, in charming fishing ports along the coast, in the leafy-squares of countless villages, or in smart eateries in the region's towns and cities.

    Access to the region is excellent and surprisingly economical - making even popping down for the weekend quick and easy. RyanAir, EasyJet FlyBe and others offer a continual stream of flights to the area - to nearby Carcassonne airport, as well as Perpignan, Béziers, Montpellier, Nîmes, Toulouse and Girona just over the border in Spain. Train and road connections are also excellent.

    From the heart of the village to the banks of the canal

    The 45 hectares of the Domaine de la Mandoune estate have been tastefully transformed into a waterside-heaven for those looking to relax and make the most of their holiday. The estate's vineyards, still producing delicious wines, stretch out for miles until they tumble into the warm waters of the Etang de Thau. Stroll through the development's lush gardens and you arrive at the horizon pool - which offers superb views of the vines and sea beyond. Or head down to the Le St Barth's restaurant on the water's edge for a delicious meal of fresh seafood. There's no better place to relax with a chilled bottle of rosé and take in what must be one of the region's most spectacular views.

    For the more active among you, why not wake up to an early-morning game of tennis with friends, or a spot of golf on the Pitch & Putt area or on the golf range? Or stroll down to the edge of the lagoon itself, and enjoy fresh oysters, mussels or grilled fish at the Le St Barth's Restaurant. From here you can admire the hundreds of oyster beds fanning out across the shimmering waters of the etang, with the hill of 'Mont St Claire' rising up from the port-town of Sète in the distance.

    Within the main building of the domain you'll find a 'Mediterranean Bistro' and French deli selling local artisanal products. Wines from the domain are served here, of course, along with a superb selection from across the region, from robust Minervois and Faugères reds, to crisp Picpoul de Pinet whites and honeyed Viogniers. And after a day of exploring the beaches and towns of the region, why not relax in the private spa for a soothing massage or treatment using local oils and garrigue herbs?

      Europe's Luxury Resort Pioneers

      In 2004, the founder of Propriétés & Co, Miguel Espada, developed a bold idea - to reconvert the best of the crumbling châteaux, abbeys, monasteries and other heritage buildings lining the Mediterranean, and transform them into luxury seaview and vineyard estates.

      Braving regulatory hurdles and the challenges of building in southern Europe, Miguel and his passionate team of architects, artisans, designers and builders have since achieved something that no one had dared attempt before - to bring some of Europe's most elegant historic properties back to life while transforming them in to tasteful boutique residences and 'spa resorts'.

      This pioneering approach, which we call 'authentic development', combines the best of modern sustainability, convenience and luxury with the elegance of a by-gone age, to create upmarket estates that have been carefully integrated into the local culture and natural environment.
