Holidays & Weekend Breaks in the South of France
Since we opened Château Les Carrasses in 2011, we have been welcoming families to our estates which provide a fantastic no compromise holiday for the whole family.
Our formula blends five star hotel facilities and service with luxury fully equipped self-catering properties for small or large families with catering adapted for children. A specialised concierge service for family activities, mini-ferme, kids club and babysitting. A huge communal heated pool, complimentary bikes, tennis court, large grounds and gardens and plenty of trees to climb!
We look forward to welcoming you for your family holiday in the Languedoc, South of France.
Enjoy an unforgettable family holiday, kids are welcome in the laid back, relaxed atmosphere of Les Carrasses.
As a family destination in the South of France, we are convinced that the formula for a successful family holiday is simple: if children have fun and make friends, parents can find what they need most: relaxation and rest.
All you need for a great family break, open in July and August, the Kid’s Club is based around nature, water play, creativity, adventure and sports, adapted to the weather and to the favorite activities of the children that attend each week.
The Kids Club is run by bilingual staff and is open for children of ages 4-12 and is open during the school holidays 5 days a week - Monday to Friday
Spending quality time as a family couldn’t be easier at the Château. The immense park, secret forest and acres of vines provide a safe environment for your children to explore and enjoy their freedom, and a host of stimulating activities will keep them entertained. We can lend tennis rackets, plastic boules, bikes and other equipment.
To the north of the Château is our mini-farm, where your children will enjoy looking after our animals or enjoying a picnic in the company of goats, lambs, the donkey, etc... Further west of the estate is a large barbecue area with tables, chairs and all the necessary equipment for easy cooking. In the main courtyard is a beautiful winter garden, La Serre, rumoured to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel. Equipped with comfortable armchairs and a library, it is an ideal place to relax.
The majestic infinity swimming pool, heated from April to October (20m long) is surrounded by a vast terrace decked with sun beds and parasols with a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.
As a Languedoc wine tourism destination, wine tastings and events will be hosted by our wine partners. More information is available on our page dedicated to wine tourism.
The Languedoc is a region full of opportunities for fantastic adventures with children.
We are located in an exceptional natural environment far from urban sprawl: The Canal du Midi is a 15 minute bike ride away through the vines, the Mediterranean beaches are just 35 minutes from the Château, discover the Haut Languedoc Parc with stunning gorges and safe river swimming or explore Cathar castles near Carcassonne or the vibrant city of Montpellier just an hour from Les Carrasses with its aquarium and zoological park.
You can stay with us for a month and experience a different activity every day and still be able to discover more!
Some of our properties are specifically designed to accommodate families with young children, they are on the ground floor with terraces and enclosed gardens, or have a ground floor bedroom overlooking the living room and terrace.
All our swimming pools comply with current safety standards, thanks to the alarms.
For your children, we provide stair gates, bed gates, plastic plates and cups, baby bed.
At the Château, a multitude of accessories are available free of charge; travel cots, high chairs and a selection of useful items (on a first-come, first-served basis) including changing mats, baby bath, sterilizer, plastic plates and glasses, stairguards, bedguards or baby monitors.
