Overview

Village Castigno is an absurdly picturesque village located between Carcassonne and Montpelier, which has been transformed into the most magical boutique accommodation in Languedoc. The quaint hamlet has grown under the skillful hands of a Flemish couple, Marc and Tine Verstraete, who own the Chateau Castigno estate. 

The chateau and organic vineyards, where the family produce wine, are joined by four different and equally charming dwellings. These historic buildings are scattered through the village, and have been converted into luxury accommodation, all unique and bursting with character. 

Imagine a house-party meets festival where the sun always shines, the food is stellar and the wine is (almost) good for you, and you can see why we fell in love with Village Castigno.

Activities

Wine and food play a big part in the activities on offer at Village Castigno, with courses and tastings available for both. For eager foodies, why not try your hand at a bread baking workshop, cookery classes, or be guided through the different herbs grown on the estate by an expert chef.

For those who fancy something active, Castigno also runs activities in hunting (for game and truffles); scooter rallies; motorised biking; hiking; helicopter tours; and excursions by horse and carriage. 

There’s also a contemporary art gallery, and ceramic studio, where you can be taught to create your own goodies to take home. The village also has a boutique lingerie shop — this is France after all.

Dining

There are four dining options at Village Castigno. La Table is the most ‘gastronomic’ of the estate’s restaurants, with a menu that changes regularly according to the seasons and available produce. Depsite the luxurious food, the al fresco dining and twinkling fairy lights keep it feeling beautifully calm and relaxed. In keeping with Castigno’s sustainable and eco-friendly ethos, produce is local, much of it grown in the estate’s organic garden.

La Petite Table is a tapas and wine bar, serving succulent comfort food with a laid-back charm, and blues music humming in the background. Gypsy Castigno is an enchanting arrangement of tents under the stars, big enough for long trestle tables where guests can eat communally among ancient olive groves. 

Every Sunday, the Nomad Kitchen organises a picnic trip out into the countryside for a South American-style barbecue.

Rooms

The rooms within Village Castigno are located in four buildings. The smallest, Maison Vic, contains one double bedroom, plus a kitchenette, living area and fireplace and has access to a garden and pool. Larger is L’Ecurie, containing two, double, loft-style bedrooms, with separate entrances, bathrooms and living areas, which can be booked separately or together.  Villa Rouge is a separate, two-bedroom house with a pool, terrace, kitchen and living-dining room (only bookable in its entirety). Finally, the largest house, Maison d’Amis, contains 9 bedrooms, which are bookable individually or in groups of two, three, six or nine bedrooms. All have en-suite bathrooms and the three ground floor rooms have private entrances. Throughout, super-king size beds are standard and the interior design features a palette of rich pinks and burgundies contrasted with natural stone, granite and wood. Given Castigno's suggestion that guests ‘take a break from technology’, we suspect WiFi will be in short supply.
