Like the first reviewer, we came across Chateau Canet through a general posting so we are thrilled it is getting its own recognition. We stayed at this great winery for three nights when first arriving to the Languedoc region and would highly recommend it.
The quality of our stay was in no small part due to Victoria and Floris. Victoria was wonderful in providing maps, dinner recommendations, day-trip advice etc. Floris gave us a wonderful tour of the winery - one of the most informative we have ever been on.
Our cottage (gite) was very tastefully furnished, quiet, comfortable, and well-equipped. Although we didn't have need for it on our stay, the kitchen would be excellent if you happened to be staying for longer.
One of the main reasons for our visit was to bike the Canal du Midi and you can rent bikes (that were in good condition) directly from the Chateau Canet, making it very easy. We also enjoyed walking around the winery and seeing the different grapes that were growing. We were just disappointed that we had to leave before the harvest day!
The only thing that may cause an issue for some is that the winery is not "walkable" to nearby towns. For us that was part of the charm but a car is a must to stay here.
In summary, Chateau Canet was one of the hilights of our trip to Southern France and we'd highly recommend it!
