Think of our Concierge as the 'Experiences Desk'

It’s all too easy to visit or even live somewhere and not truly connect with the place you’re in. One of the founding principles of the La Baraquette estate, and of its creators - Propriétés & Co, is the importance of truly experiencing the local culture, community and natural environment. To that end, La Baraquette will introduce a very different type of Concierge - one dedicated to ensuring owners and guests get off the ‘straight and narrow’ and experience the South of France that the locals experience.

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
- Gustave Flaubert

Get the inside scoop

Firstly, they’ll give you superb advice. Local to the area, and well-schooled in all that is on offer, our team will pass on hot tips on everything from hidden horse riding trails to where to go sand sailing to the best restaurants for lobster. But they’re not there just to answer questions. Trained to be far more active than your average hotel concierge, they will suggest all sorts of things to do, places to eat and out-of-the-way places to visit. An early-morning balloon trip over the beautiful town of Uzès, perhaps. Or swimming in two metre-deep rock pools in the hills. Or lunch at a seafood-only buffet restaurant just outside the village overlooking the lagoon.

AUTHENTIQUE:
In-the-know locals head for the St Barth restaurant for their oysters. Our concierge will make sure you get a water-front table to enjoy the views.

Never miss a top event

There’s nothing worse than finding out about a big happening after the event. Our Concierge will help you plan your stay to make sure those unmissable festivals, concerts and events make their way into your diary from day one. Be it the street parties of the Béziers Feria, or front-row seats at the Jazz à Sète festival or the superb ‘Wine Balade’ through Pézenas, they’ll make sure you go home with some unforgettable memories.

EXCEPTIONNEL:
Our Concierge staff will all be locals with an extensive knowledge of what's on in the area - big and small. If there's something worth going to, they'll make sure you're there for it.

Gain a deeper understanding

We believe even a little extra knowledge about a place can really enhance your experience of it - so to that end, our Concierge will be bringing the outside in. They’ll be organising cooking demonstrations in the Visitors Centre by top local chefs, wine-tastings in the La Baraquette ‘Owners’ Wine Cellar’ - led by local Masters of Wine, and fascinating talks by regional experts on everything from the history of the Canal du Midi to how to taste oysters.
