The end of the world at your fingertips
In the heart of Occitanie and the Pyrénées-Orientales, just 20 minutes from Perpignan, a singular building draws a silhouette at the foot of the medieval castle of ‘Bélesta de la frontière’, this is Domaine Riberach! Between vineyards and scrub land, in a renovated former cooperative winery, our estate is the ideal spot for lovers of the slow life. Stylish, zen, refined, eco, gastro… the list of adjectives is long when it comes to describing this estate which offers a ****/Eco-lodge hotel, a Michelin star restaurant and a winery with bistro.
In harmony with our philosophy of an ‘elegy to slowness’, the Riberach spa offers a bubble of comfort right in the heart of the hotel, pampering to lovers of well-being, body care and the slow life.
Not forgetting our ‘Nature & Progrès’ labelled organic wines... Nurtured by the Roussillon’s hot days and cool nights, which accompany slow maturity and excellent healthy fruit, Domaine Riberach wines are ambassadors of elegance. Full flavoured, refined and generous, the wines’ names thoughtfully speak for themselves: Thèse, Antithèse, Synthèse, Hypothèse*... to be enjoyed, why not, during a wine tourism escapade.
Sleeping in a vat from a former cooperative winery, renovated into a delightful loft, will always offer an unforgettable experience.
This is certainly the best way to approach the world of wine, its culture, its terroir and the men and women who make it what it is.
Take time for a gourmet escapade in the press room of a former cooperative winery. Time to relax on the shores of a lake, under the shade of an olive tree.
Time too to sleep, there where our ancestors used to nurture their wines.
Because wine comes from the vine!
Between sea and mountain, at an equal distance between the Mediterranean big blue and the snow-capped peaks of mount Canigou, a terroir which was planted over a century ago on these Pyrenees foothills and where we apply cultivation methods that our grandfathers would have been proud of!
A wedding to celebrate? A festive family reunion? A business seminar?
Domaine Riberach can take care of everything, from the venue to equipment, accompaniment and expertise, right here in Belesta, just a few kilometres from Perpignan.
Within the medieval Belesta castle, which is worth a visit in its own right, are four guest houses all in white stone with green shutters, with thick walls and open beams.More information
