Over the years, the Tarbouriech family has transformed this property into “the Domain”, replacing the antique walls with contemporary architecture. This slow passage of time is our heritage, and we invite you to savour every passing moment, unwind, move at your own pace, and go with the flow.
The infinite expanse of the sea, the endless calm of the lagoon, the restful view of the Mont Saint Clair. Land, sea and sky blend together. The only movements are flamingos taking flight. Live in the moment, without any limitations, enjoy the view, and share our special place.
In the 18th century, between Montpellier and Béziers, a mansion hidden by foliage in the middle of the countryside was called a folly. Come and stay at the Domain and share in our “folly”. There are four rooms and suites in the mansion itself, nine lodges in the 13th century barn with a traditional thatched reed roof, 2 artists’ residences and a SPA, tucked away in the winery of this former vineyard. We seek to maintain a warm, family atmosphere, so that you can completely relax in a quiet, secluded environment.
Our family has been oyster farmers for three generations. We invented the “marée solaire” (a solar-powered system to lift oysters from the water on a set timetable, as would naturally happen in a tidal area), which has paved the way for Thau lagoon oysters to feature on the menus of Michelin-starred restaurants. Everything here is tasty, from the salty air to the soft evening twilight. Every day, the vegetables we harvest from the rich soil of our biodynamic garden are full of flavour and sunshine. This zest for life inspires us, and we want to share it with you, not only through our authentic, sophisticated cuisine, but also as a fully immersive experience.
