Sleeping beneath the stars takes on a whole new meaning at Les Cabanes de l’Arbousier. A truly unique, and supremely comfortable, way to discover this vineyard just 10km from Montpellier. Relaxation guaranteed!
Surrounded by vines, sea and mountains, Domaine Saint Jean de l’Arbousier dates back to 1235 and is a former Templars property that has been in the same family for four generations. Its plots span 110 hectares and contain 40 hectares of vines surrounded by arbutus trees (arbousier in French) and umbrella pines.
Within this dreamlike landscape you’ll find four tree houses that offer guests an exciting, yet intimate, experience. And designed to offer the perfect break, as well as protect the environment. The tree houses were built without damaging the trees or their branches. And their presence does nothing to inhibit the trees’ growth. The interior of this alternative accommodation also rises to the sustainable tourism challenge, with dry-flush toilets and rechargeable lighting.
After a peaceful night’s sleep in the open air, 21st century Swiss Family Robinsons can enjoy a visit to the wine cellars or an introduction to wine tasting in the capable hands of a wine pro. Wine fans will discover the secrets behind the grape varieties and the estate's red, white and rosé wines, certified organic since 2013.
What better way to end your visit with a walk on the trails that criss-cross the site’s vast conservation area. As you stroll, information panels explain the flora and fauna you’ll encounter along the way. You're sure to meet some of the farm's animals too, to the delight of kids and their parents. And don't forget the treasure hunt, a hit with all the family!
A unique and eco-friendly way to explore the Languedoc wine region. With an added bonus: breakfast on the terrace!
