Château L’Hospitalet

Château L’Hospitalet- Wine Resort Beach Spa

L’Hospitalet has been a place of hospitality since ancient times, a tradition that has been cultivated and embellished to become what is now a wine resort fully devoted to experiencing and exploring wines and their terroir. Anode to well-being, truly going back to what really matters. Another luxury in this 1,000-hectare estate is space. And nature. An outstanding wine resort where experiences with wine, nature, art, and gourmet delights make for an exceptional stay. Amid carefully arranged rows of vines and a shaded park, the Ch.teau l’Hospitalet and La Villa Soleilla offer 41 rooms (including 28 suites), as well as numerous gastronomic options focusing on wine and memorable wine tourism experiences.

With its 11 suites, its swimming pool, and its spa, the Villa Soleilla is the resort’s ultimate accommodation. A true must. Here you can relax, unwind, and immerse yourself in nature, both outdoors and indoors. The suites, 40 m 2 to 96 m 2 in size, and all equipped with king-size beds and double sinks in the bathrooms, have incorporated the landscape with refined, elegant, uncluttered Decoration.

They are furnished with rough and smooth wood, a cool and light travertine floor decorated with soft, round carpets, white walls, and glazed bay windows constantly inviting the sunshine in. Soft green, olive, beige, and a palette of terracotta, antique pink, brick red, sienna, and burnt umber: these warm and soft tones delicately color a wall in each suite, where a natural wood screen surrounds the headboard. Cushions, armchairs, lighting, and thick cotton bed ends add a touch of color to this natural world, allowing the outdoor landscape to shine. The suites’ long terraces or private gardens include a lounge corner and two deckchairs for a crisp breakfast in the morning or a period of meditation, taking in the silence all around you. Snacks, organic and detox juices, a glass of rose. (or other wines; we have a wide range), and the chef would love to serve you light, gourmet dishes to pick from besides the Soleilla swimming pool in the shade of huge, immaculate parasols. And just before the sun drops below the horizon, don’t forget a friendly, bucolic aperitif with a jazz soundtrack. A moment to enjoy the gentle fullness. At the Château, 17 beautiful suites and 13 superior rooms (minimum 30m2) are spread across two floors in the three buildings, with views of the park or the vines. The decor is slightly more colorful and dynamic, but nature remains the common thread. All rooms have a parquet floor, and the suites have a sofa lounge area that could easily accommodate a family, with the ever-present light kept in check by two pastel-colored double curtains. Some suites have a private garden facing the park with a jacuzzi, others are duplexes, some can be combined as a pair, and those in the red ochre building (with a very Tuscan feel) overlook the beautiful olive grove.


In addition to the various gastronomic offerings with sought-after pairings determined by the location and time of year, a memorable experience at Château l’Hospitalet is also intertwined with wine. The uninitiated will begin with a tour of the estate through the vineyards and the winery, followed by a tasting in the shop, where our wine merchants will guide them as they take their first steps. Tastings can be booked for small groups of residents in a private room. A wine resort is also the perfect place to further your knowledge of wine with masterclasses combining learning and tasting (duration 1 hr 30), covering four topics focusing on G.rard Bertrand wines.


Just a few minutes drive from the resort, l’Hospitalet Beach is a large beach area adorned with natural hues, wood, teak, a plant wall, green plants, and a true southern atmosphere. The beach offers 100 single deckchairs, 4 double deckchairs and 4 canopy beds, a large cocktail bar, and a restaurant open for lunch and dinner in the summer (from May to September). Although conviviality, fun activities ((paddle-board (20 euros per hour), yoga (40 euros per person per hour)) and festive evenings are all available at l’Hospitalet Beach, the food offerings hold their own, in line with the chef’s commitment to high-quality produce. Planchas to share, vegetarian dishes, Bassin de Thau oysters, vegetable maki, fish tartare, beef carpaccio, beautifully fresh salads, and poke bowls, to name but a few classics. The chef will also focus on market cuisine based on the produce of the day for a few high-end dishes: on the sea menu, lobster, seared tuna, bass, and sea bream; for meat, Pyrenees veal chop, rack of lamb with sage, Aubrac beef, or grilled pork ribs. The wine list offers an opportunity to explore G.rard Bertrand wines, including several fine options served by the glass to enjoy. Jeroboams of Ros. Gris Blanc or Code Rouge bubbly dancing in the setting sun, when ‘blue notes’ take hold as darkness


From l’Hospitalet, you can enjoy a tour of six biodynamically cultivated estates, and depending on the number of participants, this can be combined with a meal at the estate focusing on their wine.


Grandma Paule Bertrand was born on 1 January 1900, which undoubtedly set her up for an exceptional life! She lived through the 20th century courageously, raising her nine children. She also acquired land and planted a vineyard to produce wine. Her whole life, she cooked huge family meals with love and left a precious recipe book as her legacy. These recipes now provide inspiration for the menu of the new restaurant created in her honor.


Paule’s recipes have been interpreted with modern taste by chef Laurent Chabert, retaining the essence of traditions from all over the region. They are prepared in the restaurant’s large wood-fired oven, on an open grill, or in a cocotte casserole dish. The menu is created in line with the seasons, and the daily specials change each morning according to what’s on offer at the market. Guests can discover key Languedoc-Rous-sillon terroirs and appellations through the wine list. Enjoy the decor combining wood, stone, and vintage items, inviting you to savor our traditions just as much as the comforts of the modern day.


We are pleased to present the program for our 19th Festival Jazz. l’Hospitalet. Celebrated in the open air, the Festival has established itself over the years as one of the highlights of the summer jazz scene. Over the course of six consecutive evenings, the Ch.teau l’Hospitalet offers an exceptional setting for the artists and their audience: a benchmark biodynamic vineyard located in the heart of the Massif de la Clape, a protected natural area between Narbonne and the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. The evening begins with a grand gala dinner in the park of the Ch.teau. Chef Laurent Chabert and his brigade compose menus served at the table in harmony with the great wines of G.rard Bertrand. Each evening has its own dress code. Total look or accessory, the guests create the atmosphere and set the tone each evening. This summer, the nights at l’Hospitalet will be Orange, Gold, White, Red, Flowery, and Pink! As night falls, the first concert begins on the Grand Stage, in the intimate courtyard of the Ch.teau, where the greatest names in jazz have already performed. Then the evening continues on the vineyard side, on the second stage of the festival, after midnight.


Located on the Occitan coast, just a few minutes from Narbonne, the Domaine de l’Hospitalet is a wine estate of 1000 hectares of protected Mediterranean scrubland and forest and 82 hectares of vines in one piece, nestled in the heart of a preserved natural area: the Massif de la Clape. This former island, connected to the mainland in the 14th century following the accumulation of alluvial deposits from the Aude, benefits from an extraordinary topography, geology, and environment. Thanks to its great ecological and heritage value, the Massif de la Clape is a protected site. Indeed, the massif is listed as a Sensitive Natural Area and is part of the Natura 2000 network, a label that protects a unique site with exceptional flora and fauna. An ideal place to get closer to nature, the Hospitalet estate, with its exceptional setting and Mediterranean climate, is one of the most beautiful vineyards in the Pays d’oc.
