A traditional 19th century wine estate, Chateau Canet is today recognised as one of the leading domaines of the Minervois region in the heart of the Languedoc Roussillon. The 45 hectares of vineyards are complimented with 3 hectares of olive groves and over 65 hectares of farmland and pine forests. The setting is truly enchanting with all the buildings nestled in the heart of the estate. There are uninterrupted views over the vineyards and olive groves to the distant Alaric mountains. It is a perfect place to unwind and soak in the beauty of the South of France.
Today, all the original buildings are still in use although they have been significantly modernised. The old winery is fitted with state of the art wine making equipment, allowing us to blend traditional ‘savoir-faire’ with modern day techniques. The stables are now used as our “aging cellar” where the wines quietly mature until ready to be bottled and enjoyed. The manor house is still a family home and the original “vignerons” lodgings have been converted in charming guest cottages.
You are welcome to come and taste our wines and wander into the cellars to discover the pace of life on a working wine estate. Or you may choose to stay for longer and enjoy a wonderful holiday in one of our charming guest cottages. And while on holiday, you can explore our vineyards, hike through miles of private countryside following herb scented trails or use one of our bikes and venture further a-field, along the peaceful country roads surrounding the estate. Younger guests enjoy their own play area and the “pick your own fruit” orchard is available to all.
In the middle of the ‘Pays Cathare’, with its rich medieval history, the location of Château Canet is hard to beat. Just 2 kilometres from the small and charming village of Rustiques only 15 minutes from the UNESCO world heritage sites, the Cité de Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi.
When we started looking for a wine estate in the South of France, we had a dream, we were looking for more than just a place that we could call home… we were looking for a home that we could share with our family, friends and guests.
And so "Chez Canet" came to be! A cluster of independent cottages located on the site of our picturesque wine and olive oil estate Chateau Canet; the perfect setting for your holiday and for experiencing the many pleasures of French country life.
The nine cottages at Chateau Canet form part of the original buildings and are nestled in the heart of the Estate, surrounded by the vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchard. Each cottage is named after one of our grape or olive varietals and overlook the gardens, pool, tennis court or our "pick your own" fruit orchard; all of which are available for your exclusive enjoyment during your stay.
The cottages vary in size and sleeping capacity. They are well equipped with modern amenities and can accommodate young children. The layout of each cottage is described in detail allowing you to choose the one that suits you best.
