Chateau de la Redorte
French vineyards apartments at the 18th-century Chateau de la Redorte, a magnificent Vineyard & Spa Resort in Languedoc
Chateau de la Redorte, situated in the heart of the Languedoc region of Southern France, is an exceptional Vineyard & Spa resort. The 18th century chateau has been a residency of the d’Artois family for no less than five generations, and was originally a winemaking estate.
The restoration of Chateau de la Redorte has resulted in a select number of stunning vineyards apartments for sale. The ‘savoir-faire’ of local artisans has brought back the Languedoc Chateau to its former elegance and charm.
The vineyards apartments for sale include sophisticated apartments within the château itself and a number of ‘duplex’ homes which line either side of the estate’s pool. Some of the Languedoc properties offer their own gardens and terraces and a private pool is an option with many. Buyers will also enjoy 1 case of wine per year.
The historic French Château is set in its own delightful park at the very heart of the charming Minervois village of La Redorte in the Languedoc. Overgrown gardens have been cut back and replanted with elegantly-laid-out lavender, oleander and roses – punctuated by towering Cyprus pines. A 25 metre pool, framed by soft stone paving, forms the centre-piece of the development’s gardens – overlooked by newly constructed homes built in the style of traditional outbuildings. Within the château itself, formal rooms have been transformed in to a restaurant and luxury spa, while a number of wine, cuisine and cultural events and courses are planned both within the château and in its grounds.
The village is a typical Mediterranean wine growing village which in many ways has remained unchanged since the middle-ages.
Chateau de la Redorte was once considered the heart of the village and has been brought back to the position it once held.
The developer of the Languedoc property is a three-time winner of the prestigious Bentley-CNBC property award for the best development project.
Chateau de la Redorte is an architectural masterpiece with a wealth of history and sumptuous French ‘Art de Vivre’ at its finest – a dream holiday home in south of France combined with a sound investment.

The area, where over the years many ‘grand crus’ have been created, is a wine lover’s dream and with its Mediterranean culture, Languedoc-Roussillon is characterised by its ‘art de vivre’ and is firmly attached to its traditions and customs.
The region’s many historical monuments include abbeys and castles and Languedoc boasts several UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Pont du Gard, the Canal du Midi, the medieval city of Carcassonne and the pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela, which take in the abbey of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert and the abbey church of Saint-Gilles.
The Cité of Carcassonne has been the setting for many films featuring medieval castles. It is one of the few sights in the world that genuinely justifies the epithet “breath taking” and the Canal du Midi, the tree-lined canal that runs from Toulouse to the Mediterranean Sea, is the largest UNESCO World heritage site in the world.
