Located on the shores of the stunning Etang de Thau – a Mediterranean lagoon, the Domaine de la Mandoune is a tastefully renovated wine domain, transformed into a luxurious vineyard estate resort that still produces delicious wines.
Elegant former wine facilities have been turned into spacious apartments, with as many of the original features preserved and brought back to life. The grounds have been replanted with lush shrubs and flowers, with a large pool, tennis court and even a ‘petanque’ (boules) court added. A large pool provides respite from the summer sun. And a short walk through the gardens takes you to the shores of the lagoon, where you`ll enjoy stunning views of the oyster tables fanning out across the pearlescent waters.
Properties here are spacious and light, equipped with all the modern conveniences you’d expect from a luxury development. Many have their own gardens, where you can relax with a chilled bottle of rosé on warm summer evenings.
There’s a restaurant at the heart of the development, which serves healthy breakfasts and regional dishes for lunch and dinner. And a short walk down the coast leads to the superb St Barth Restaurant, famous for serving for the region’s best oysters with spectacular views over the water.
