About Les Forges
This beautiful and authentic Château is a 19th Century Wine Domaine in the Languedoc, South of France, extensively restored as a luxury self-catering estate, comprising a unique collection of luxurious self-catering residences, on-site restaurant, winery and first-class hotel facilities.
Les Forges is a luxury villa with 3 en-suite bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. From the kitchen/living room/dining room on the ground floor, large French windows open onto the west-facing terrace with dining area, barbecue and large garden, with sun loungers and a private pool.
The magnificent shared infinity pool (20m x 8m), heated from April to October features an inviting submerged beach area for lounging. Poolside service is available throughout the summer.
To the west of the estate is an outstanding social spot – a large barbecue station with tables and chairs and all the equipment needed for an easy cookout. Next to the barbecue area are two boules courts, where you’re free to while away a couple of lazy hours.
In the main courtyard is a magnificent conservatory, La Serre, rumoured to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel. This lovely structure houses comfortable chairs and a take one / leave one library, making it an ideal place to relax.

Location and Map
This marker is for indication purpose only
The serene, tree-lined Canal du Midi is a 5-minute drive or 10-minute cycle ride from the Château. Spend a leisurely afternoon along the cycle paths or cruising on a hired canal boat. Alternatively enjoy dinner with a wine tasting while someone else does the sailing for you
There are four golf courses within an hours’ drive and the Château has two sets of clubs for guests’ use, subject to availability.
The Château is just a few minutes from Capestang, Quarante and Puisserguier. These charming winemaking villages offer all the necessary services – supermarkets, doctors, markets and countless wine domaines plus a choice of restaurants and cafés, from upmarket canal-side bistros to friendly village bars.
The closest village to the Château is the picturesque canal port of Capestang, where barges line the quays and cafés and restaurants animate the main square.
THE LOCAL AREA
The immediate locality offers a huge range of recreational options. The golden beaches at Serignan and Portiragnes are a 25-minute drive. Countless vineyards and markets offer the very best local produce. And on days when you feel like something a little more urban, you are 20 minutes from the city of Béziers, while Montpellier, France’s ‘most exciting city’, is less than an hour away.
Languedoc’s beaches tend to be huge – long and deep, with fine pale sand and warm, clear blue water. Beach clubs spring up each year along many of region’s beaches, with bars and restaurants, lounger service and even massages. Many transform into laid-back clubs in the evening, with the latest in relaxed beach sounds from international and home-grown DJs.
RIVERS, LAKES & LAGOONS
The Languedoc’s river and lake beaches offer a lovely alternative to the coast, particularly on the traffic-heavy Saturdays in July and August. The beaches around the Thau lagoon- famous mainly for its oyster farming – are a nice alternative to the large sea beaches, with always-calm, and slightly warmer water – great for younger kids.

Laid-back luxury: great service from local people in a relaxed atmosphere. Like most self-catering properties, room service is not available outside the Château suites, although restaurant meals and pizzas are available to take away.
The surrounding estate offers 10 acres of well-tended gardens, as well as vineyards and woodland crossed with walking and bike trails.
TENNIS & VOLLEYBALL
Neatly bordered by cypress trees, our championship-size clay court can be floodlit in the evenings. The beach-volleyball court next door is great for a fun workout in the sunshine. All the equipment you need for a game is provided free of charge.
The countryside around the Château is perfect for exploration on two wheels, and there are plenty of complimentary bicycles for guests’ use, together with useful route maps.
SALON & BOUTIQUE
The salon is the heart of communal life at the Château. Once the store for the harvested grapes, the salon now houses the reception, lounge and Brasserie dining room, as well as a small boutique which stocks delicious local artisan products.
SOUND & VISION
All of the holiday residences are equipped with a Bose sound dock. There are also iPods pre-loaded with selected playlists, compiled by specialists AudioSushi. Each property has at least one TV and DVD player, with a wide range of French and English channels.
Available for gentle training or more intensive fitness programmes, the Château’s personal trainer can help offset the effects of the local cuisine! To ensure availability we advise pre-booking this service.
The Château can arrange tailor-made activities for your celebrations and special occasions. Ask us about helicopter rides, paragliding, barge trips, private wine tastings, quad-biking and much more.
