Château Canet, is located in one of France’s most picturesque wine regions just minutes from the medieval city of Carcassonne. A traditional 19th century wine and olive oil domain, it consists of a collection of cottages, swimming pool, tennis court and function areas as well as a working winery with vineyards and olive groves.

The delightful château is home to the Lemstra family. They take care to ensure a warm welcome for all their guests and are always happy to share their insiders’ knowledge over a glass of wine! The château is recognised as one of the leading domains of the Minervois region and is the perfect setting to experience the many pleasures of French country life.

All the original buildings are still in use, although significantly modernised. The 9 charming "vigneron" cottages are named after one of the estate's grape or olive varietals and overlook the vineyards.They are all fully equipped and offer a comfortable home base.

Château Canet is extremely family-friendly, and has a children's play area (swing, slide), play room (fancy dress costumes, games), ping pong table, tennis court, fully-secure swimming pool, with travel cots, high chairs, baby phones available. There is no traffic so children are safe to play around the domain, playing hide-and-seek in the olive grove.

For a large group wishing to enjoy a celebration or special occasion together, we can offer L'Orangerie seating 70 for dinner.

In a great location, 15 minutes from the medieval city of Carcassonne and the Canal de Midi; a perfect spot for exploring the Languedoc Roussillon. Enjoy discovering picturesque villages, Cathar Castles and magnificent landscapes all within easy driving distance. Ample opportunities to shop at open air markets and savour the regional gastronomy, or choose to cook "at home", with fresh herbs gathered from the back garden and our own olive oil - and you can be sure of that endless supply of wine!
