The Domaine de Verchant will begin the start of its extension work in the fall of 2022. The first 5-star hotel in Languedoc in 2010, and member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux association since 2013, is one of the must-see sites in the region… and don't intend to stop there.
26 rooms and suites, a gourmet restaurant, a brasserie in the vineyards, spaces for events and seminars, a SPA and well-being area of more than 2 m², but also a prestigious cellar of more than 000 references and 1 600 passes: here are the significant advantages of this resolutely luxurious hotel. But the Verchant estate wants to see bigger.
The expansion thus includes the creation of 24 exceptional rooms and additional suites, a new reception and a new gourmet restaurant.
The new structure of around 4 m000 was built by the architecture firm Megias-Vernhes in Aigues-Mortes. The program includes an extension on three levels, between landscaped park and vineyards. The work, which will begin in the fall, will highlight the historical heritage of the place by skillfully articulating contemporary architecture and authenticity, while ensuring the conservation of a classified heritage area.
The park and the alleys of the Domaine de Verchant are listed in the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments… which is not nothing! This Montpellier estate is recognized for its historical and artistic value with its characteristic landscape composition. Indeed, it is enriched with a landscaped park resulting from the work of the Bühler brothers at the end of the XNUMXth century. Hence the importance of preserving the essence of the place.
The preservation of the historic park and its canopy, emblematic of the landscape, is a key element of the redevelopment plan. Ensuring the sustainability of its listed park, an integral part of its poetic identity, is therefore a priority.
The new architecture of the site will highlight the founding elements of the landscape, such as the main access roads. The owners also attach particular importance to the preservation of old facilities that reflect the life and history of the place.
The development of the Estate will also be accompanied by a program to replant the north and south paths, which will thus retain their appearance. The landscaped park will also be enriched, in order to create real highlights for walks, all along the visitor's route.
Top start of the work in the fall of 2023!
