Here at Meriski we are, of course, best known for our knowledge of all things ski and, in particular, Méribel. However, we also have a wealth of travel knowledge in other regions that we would like to share with you.
Having built a loyal following over the years, we have an in depth understanding of what our Meriski guests are looking for in a holiday.
So, let us introduce you to our first Meriski Partnership, Chateau St Pierre de Serjac, a new hotel and wine estate which both our Chairman, Colin Mathews, and Managing Director, Huw Davies, are delighted to recommend.
Nestled within the vineyards of the unspoiled Languedoc countryside in the South of France, the Château truly has something to offer all its guests at whatever time of year they choose to visit.
Travelling to and from the Château could not be easier; just 20 minutes from Béziers airport, 45 minutes from Montpellier and 2 hours from Toulouse. Good value car hire is readily available and return airport transfers may also be arranged.
The Languedoc is a truly outstanding province, dominated by rolling countryside, ancient vineyards, charming hilltop towns and rustic villages. Whether it’s exploring local markets, boutique wineries, artisan restaurants or the Mediterranean coast with its sandy beaches and famous oyster beds, there is certainly much on offer.
With such enviable facilities offered during your stay, you may find that you do not want to venture any further than the Château estate itself, and we would completely understand that!
The accommodation is extremely flexible, offering a variety of options. The main Château presents large, elegant hotel rooms with a fusion of contemporary and classic styling. The estate offers 1 or 2 bedroom apartments and also a selection of private, self-catered villas with 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms, many with their own private, heated pools. All are luxuriously furnished, spacious and characterised by stone and wood floors with warm, relaxing hues throughout. The kitchens are all very well equipped enabling you to take advantage of the local market produce.
Weber barbecues and outdoor dining furniture are provided for essential al fresco dining.
FOOD AND DRINK
One of the main highlights of the estate is undoubtedly the excellent food and wine on offer; deliciously simple, classic Meditteranean-style dishes prepared from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
The restaurant in the Château offers an excellent value three course menu at lunchtime and à la carte in the evening. Dining also takes place on the terrace so you can soak-up the views and, of course, the enviable weather. A children’s menu, with impressive selections, is also provided for younger guests.
This being France, the wine options are endless and you’ll find a full range of wines from not only the Château itself, but other estates in the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Spain. St Pierre de Serjac is a perfect centre to discover the diversity, experimentation and sheer verve of the Languedoc - the world’s most exciting wine region. The on-site wine shop will help you continue your discoveries at home!
