We are located between the Pyrenees Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea in the heart of the Languedoc region, famous for its cultural heritage and wine-growing. The Cité de Carcassonne (the tremendous medieval gallo-roman walled city build on a rocky spur) and the Canal du Midi, both included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997, are just 4 km away.
The Abbeys of Fontfroide, Lagrasse and Saint Hilaire are close to the estate. The vineyards of the Corbieres and Minervois dominate the area, while highlighting the famous cathar castles. In 2005, a red wine from Minervois was awarded as 'The Best Wine in the World' !!
Domaine de Maran is an ancient family wine estate. The main building was rebuilt at the beginning of the XIXth century on a site inhabited since the XIIIth century.

You arrive through a two hectare park, where you can hear the song of the cicadas sheltered in the hundred-year-old Mediterranean trees while the walkways, swimming-pool, ornamental lake and rose garden will catch your eyes....

What a marvelous experience. The Domaine de Maran is a lovely property just outside of Carcassone. We were met by Henry who was hanging out the window awaiting our arrival so he could direct us to the proper place to park. Alix and Henry both warmly greeted us at the front door and immediately invited us to rest in the salon with a cool drink while Henry took our luggage to our rooms. We were three women travelling together with a 2 day stop over in Carcassone. Alix had made dinner reservations for us in a lovely restaurant with courtyard inside the walls of the fortress where we had an excellent dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grounds of the estate, including the pool. Such a quiet, beautiful property. We were fortunate to met the children and grandchild of our hosts as it was Henry's birthday while we were there and they had a party for him.. All were very gracious and friendly---just like the parents.. Our rooms were very comfortable and we loved seeing the paintings of the estate in various rooms. Alix introduced us to her hens and took us on a tour of the hen house. She is very proud of her hens and the eggs they produce. Breakfast was simple, but delicious. The bakery delivers fresh bread and croissants daily to them and Alix makes all the jams with fruits from her garden. Alix provided information to us about canal rides on the Canal du Midi---an interesting canal which connects the Atlantic with the Mediterranean Sea and has a series of locks along the way. We took just a short trip on the canal and went through 2 locks. Upon leaving, we were wishing we had more days at the chateau. It was a charming experience. Merci to our excellent hosts.
