Heritage and follies Château de Flaugergues in Montpellier

Château de Flaugergues

Henri and Brigitte de Colbert take loving care of their château, which has been in the family for over 300 years. The grounds include French-style gardens, an orangery, a park in the “English style”, a “five senses” garden, and a bamboo plantation.

Today, in this haven of peace disturbed only by bird song, it is hard to believe that the oldest “Folly” in Montpellier is in the heart of the city, near the Millénaire district.

The elegance of the interior is a perfect setting for the numerous collections, unusual objects and superb Flemish tapestries.

The wrought iron sculptures and balconies transport the visitor back to the golden age of the Montpellier nobility.

But Flaugergues is also one of the last wine properties in the city, whose wines are well respected, and which has been a wine tourism pioneer, organizing themed tours and
tastings at the château so as to offer a complete wine experience.

A new winery has recently been added to the 25-hectare vineyard, which is part of the Vinofolia project, a body which awards “remarkable” status to vineyards in the same way as certain châteaux are recognized as having “remarkable gardens”.

The Folia restaurant, in the adjoining buildings, completes Flaugergues’ wine tourism  experience, with a superb gastronomic menu.
