Capitoul’s new lease of life is now continuing with the development of a hamlet in the midst of this magnificent wooded site alongside the vineyards. This superb property set within a fully functioning winery offers a harmonious Mediterranean fusion between its outstanding architectural heritage and the purest French chic atmosphere. Château Capitoul spectacularly dominates the hillside. Its 10-hectare, south-facing, wooded grounds are surrounded by 100 hectares of vines, olive groves and woodland and offer vistas over the salt water lagoons as far as the Pyrenees.
Its cellar door facilities, its customised tasting rooms, wine discovery centre and shop will enable customers to discover the annual wine cycle by taking part in every stage of winemaking.
This wooded island that once housed the Roman galleys is today a 15,000 ha listed natural site interspersed with walking and cycling paths with spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the surrounding countryside. The golden beaches of the Mediterranean are 3 minutes away from Château Capitoul by car or bicycle along the ponds.
A relaxed and spacious brasserie with a panoramic terrace with spectacular views, large vine wood barbecues for perfect grilling; an intimate gourmet restaurant in the dining room of the chateau in which 8 symmetrical bay windows plunge into a sumptuous panorama.
Mediterranean trees, shrubs and aromatic herbs will be planted by designers James & Helen Basson - specialists in hot and dry landscapes, two-time gold medallists at the Victoires du Paysage and three times at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show among other awards... an innovative concept that fits perfectly with our philosophy and desire to contribute to sustainable development.
