CHATEAU DU GRAND PIN
ENTRANCE, GARDEN, SWIMMING POOL
Built in the 1850s when the Minervois wines were coming into their most prosperous years, Chateau du Grand Pin has now been totally renovated to high standards, with large bathrooms, and bedrooms. The owners have been careful to balance tradition with modern visuals. Rooms are bright, and often have views of the surrounding village and vineyards.
There is ample off street parking in a gated area, across the road from the Chateau. Entry is through the magnificent gates of the Languedoc family that once owned this gracious house. The tall pine tree that gives the chateau its name, gives shade over a small entrance garden with pond, with fountain, where one can sit and read out of the sun.
