Château L’Hospitalet

"Sine vino, vana hospitalitas", this ancient maxim, meaning without wine hospitality is vain, dates back to the Middle Ages when pilgrims were welcomed by monks at the hospital that was then located on this spot. Now it reflects the Mediterranean lifestyle featuring good food, fine wines and fun events. At Château L'Hospitalet, luxury signifies space and nature. Located between land and sea in the heart of the vineyards, the 1000 hectare estate is the perfect setting of an unforgettable holiday.


Caractère customers get a bottle of wine in the room, free wine tasting and a 10% discount when buying wine in the wine boutique, excluding promotions.

The owner Gérard Bertrand, a former rugby player, is also a passionate art lover besides being a winemaker and hotelier. He has created his own art collection and you can discover some of his art objects among the vineyards. Every year, various artists and performers are invited to organise an exhibition both inside and outside the hotel. The exposition then takes place in the vineyards. This makes for a special, almost surreal outdoor decor. An artistic event that should not be missed is the annual four-day "Festival Jazz à L'Hospitalet" in the courtyard of the wine estate. This renowned jazz festival has been welcoming the greatest French and international artists every summer since 2004 on a magnificent stage on the Château L'Hospitalet domain for unforgettable open-air concerts.

Caractère review

Charming wine estate with a unique location in the middle of the vineyards. It is on the edge of the La Clape nature reserve and a stone's throw from Narbonne-Page beach. It's a real oasis of beauty!
