Domaine a l’Aise
Country Guest House in the Real South of France
St Marcel, in the environs of Pezenas, was once the home of a wine merchant. Domaine à l’Aise built in 1850 has been converted into a small Chambre et Table D’Hôte which exudes a French atmosphere. Domaine a l’Aise is not a hotel, but our home and we want it to be your home away from home.
Less than 40 years ago, all five properties in the tiny hamlet of St Marcel were owned by one family of wine producers. Descendants of this family still live in the house opposite the Domaine and continue to work the vineyards which envelope the hamlet.
15 years ago the previous owners began the conversion from a wine domaine into the Chambre D’Hôte with five immaculate and cosy bedrooms.
Domaine a l’Aise is well known for its family rustic style dining, honesty bar and the chance to experience various regional wines, along with its relaxed and easy atmosphere. A three course meal is available up to 6 evenings per week using locally sourced ingredients. We do love to enjoy a relaxed BBQ night with our guest once per week.
Michael and Karen spent five years searching for their perfect new home in the South of France.
Domaine a l’Aise has guests returning year after year to continue exploring all that the Herault and Languedoc Rousillion have to offer.
Ideally situated for the beaches at Meze and beyond, the amazing medieval towns of Pezenas and Carcassone, the Canal du Midi, many wine domains and so much more, the Domaine a l’Aise is perched on a hill, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, overlooking the beautiful valley of Plaissan.
Only a 20 minute stroll away from the centre of Saint-Pargoire, Karen and Michael offer their guests the ideal chance of being transported back to the relaxed life styles of the vignerons, where a day begins with a breakfast on the terrace and finishes with a glass of wine at sunset, nothing has changed.
Wines are source locally, including organically some that are organically produced. We should be delighted to arrange for you to visit one of the domaines we use.
