What to expect

The Château de Flaugergues was one of Montpellier's first "Folies", leisure residences of 18th century Languedocian aristocracy. Acquired and transformed by Etienne de Flaugergues in 1696, the castle still remains a family home for The Colbert family, descendants of Etienne de Flaugergues and Jean-Baptiste Colbert (minister of Louis XVI) still live in the château as their principal residence. They happily host the tours, and other cultural events like movie screenings under the stars! This unique location is rich with local heritage, botany, wine making, and gastronomy - before or after your tour, enjoy a delicious meal at the Folia restaurant on the castle's grounds.

Your guide will reveal the anecdotes of this mansion full of history. It conceals many surprises, starting with the monumental staircase on vaults with hanging keystones that unfold over three floors. You'll also taste the locally produced wine - the castle boasts a vineyard that is over 2000 years old, dating back from the Roman Empire !
