Domaine de Verchant
This 5 star luxury hotel and spa contains 26 luxury bedrooms and apartments, and beautifully combines simple, stylish contemporary furniture with the charm and character of antique stone. All the alterations were carried out by Raymond Morel, who had redesigned the prestigious Murano and Kube private mansions in Paris.
The decoration of the Domaine de Verchant reflects the varied influences of Italian designers including Poltrona, Moroso, Casa Milano and Nanimarquina. Meanwhile, the facilities are resolutely geared towards the hi-tech, with ergonomic, top quality equipment.
1582: a key date in the history of the Domaine
On 1 February 1582, the Bishop of Montpellier granted Pierre De Verchant a “domaine”, or estate, which took on his name, and remained in his family for two centuries.
On 23 September 1878, Jules Leenhardt acquired the site and the mansion inspired by the I8th century “Folies Montpelliéraines” built in the heart of the exceptional park. He lavished particular attention on the latter, calling in the Bühler brothers, who were eminent Swiss landscape architects of the time.
To establish the European reputation of the farm and vineyard, 60,000 American vines were introduced to the 45-hectare VERCHANT vineyard, where today we still invite visitors to come and sample our vintage wines all year round.

Located in the heart of a 17-hectare vineyard, Verchant le Spa is a private club covering 750 m2, unique of its kind in Montpellier. Designed by Chantal and Pierre Mestre, this “place apart” is just like their hotel: a designer setting combining luxury and well-being, and a haven dedicated to care of mind and body alike (with Anne Semonin and Valmont products).
At Verchant, with the long history of our estate behind us, we focus all our efforts on maintaining our wines and ensuring that they flourish. Surrounding the Château, the 17- hectare Verchant vineyard contains among others red Syrah and Grenache vines from the Mediterranean, and Merlot, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot vines from Bordeaux. 10% of the vineyard is devoted to white grapes, with traditional Roussane, Viognier and Vermentino vines. Throughout the estate, old vines rub shoulders with more recently planted ones, and we have adopted the double cordon “Royat” pruning associated with wooden post trellises.
