About Manoir and Winery de Canet
Manoir and Winery de Canet is a fully renovated and imposing Manor House of the Belle Epoque. This house was originally built in the early 1830s as a show of influence by one of the wealthiest farmers, land-owners and Wine and Brandy producers and was, at one point, home to the family of the Mayor of Narbonne.
The house sits securely behind magnificent decorative cast iron gates, with an imposing façade of golden quarried sandstone, as is the grand curved staircase and balustrade that rises to the front architectural balcony and terrace.
Heavy full height wooden doors open to the main entrance hall, with its marble staircase and walls, still rendered in the original 1830’s hand-painted “Trompe l’Oeil”, giving an aged marble effect.
Either side of the entrance hall are double doors that open into two large comfortable rooms (the salon and the dining room), each with high ceilings, complete with ornate mouldings, chandeliers and marble fireplaces – this gives you a clear choice of two areas to sit and relax, perhaps for young and old or whatever suits the mood best.
The main hub of this Manor House is the newly re-fitted dining room and large fully-equipped French period country-style kitchen. Through the two double-height French doors, you can access the outside for al fresco dining, thanks to multiple tables that can be moved and joined together for wonderful dining under the stars on the terraces, front courtyard or large garden to the rear of the property.
On the ground floor, we have a further recently fitted contemporary classes French kitchen, equipped with satellite TV and access to the front courtyard – this area is also used by the housekeeper (when her services are required) to book delicious local food for waitered parties. Next door to the kitchen is a well-stocked “Honesty Wine Cellar” / utility room with a washing machine. Just off of the original staff kitchen is a games room, equipped with a full sized pool table, bar-style table football and a full-sized ping pong table.
On the first floor, there are four well-proportioned luxury bedroom suites, all with double beds that can be easily split into two singles. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with Hans Grohe power rain showers and double sinks, space permitting.
There are three daybeds that can be popped up and placed within the largest room suites, suitable for children only. There are 4 portable cots and 4 high chairs for babies.
On the third floor are three further bedrooms and a large shared family size WC and shower room with double sinks. One of the bedrooms is arranged as a non-splittable double, the next is a splittable double and the final one is a two-three bed dormitory, ideal for teens.
To the rear of the property is a large shady garden and a brand new swimming pool, which is heated and fenced, as well as a sun terrace. From the balcony, you have views over the main swimming pool, sun terrace and garden with its shallow brook and numerous mature fruit trees.
The house enjoys a position set East to West, with huge grounds. Part of it is laid to a large garden full of fig, olive, cherry, apple and walnut trees.
There is a fenced-in shallow brook which carries all kinds of small fish through the back garden, providing the ideal opportunity for a line and hook or bucket for the younger amongst us.
There are many further activities on-site, including sheltered private areas to read a good book, a hammock and various terraces. There is plenty of car parking across the road, or more secure parking at The Winery, where the private drive from the heart of the village opens into farmland and vineyards that make up part of the original estate.
The terrace overlooks a walled courtyard and large gravelled entertaining or barbeque area, furnished with bright contemporary coloured traditional French café style tables and chairs.
