The word "folly" once upon a time conveyed generalized delight in nature — a favored country retreat for the aristocracy. That sense predominates as you approach Domaine de Biar, a lovingly restored estate set like a gemstone amid more than 120 acres of bucolic meadows, farmland, old-growth trees, and vineyards outside Montpellier on France’s Mediterranean coast.

In many ways, this is the bed-and-breakfast idiom at its best. Besides a guarantee of privacy — accommodations total just four rooms, a suite, and an apartment — there’s an unassailable respect for peace and quiet on the premises. It’s a remarkably self-contained whole; once you’ve partaken of the all-organic daily breakfast spread, you’re free to ramble the grounds, drinking in the wealth of natural and architectural beauty. They didn’t mess with the buildings’ Ancien Régime provenance, thankfully, which comes through in abundant scrollwork and floral detailing on the mesmerizing stone exteriors. Roam a little further and you’ll discover the estate’s 25 resident horses, proof of its resurrected Camargue breeding tradition, as well as a sizable herd of cattle (it’s a regular ungulate’s paradise, what with the wide expanse of gently rolling, well-watered prairie).

The rooms, outfitted by the euphoniously named interior-design agency Dabadabada, reflect the varying temperaments of Biar’s onetime residents. They differ substantially, from Belle Époque hedonism in sultry reds and lavenders to grayscale phantasmagoria with accordion lamps and sketches of scientific instruments. The Rational-Romantic dialectic is alive and well, in other words. Accents both whimsical and luxe abound: freestanding tubs, hidden doors, private terraces, and fireplaces can all be found in one room or another. And lest you resign yourself to Enlightenment-era comforts, there are also flatscreens, Nespresso machines, and complimentary wi-fi.

Here, as elsewhere, there’s a gratifying dedication to stringent ecological standards in the materials and energy protocols. Speaking of which, an on-site chef is available to prepare meals at your summons, though Montpellier itself certainly doesn’t lack in the gustatory department. The city center's just seven kilometers away, and what a spot to come home to!

How to get there: Domaine de Biar is located approximately 20 km by car from Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport via A9, D132, and D5. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
