This imposing residence was built in Autignac in the middle of the 19th century under the leadership of the father of Mr. Pierre André Louis of VIGNE LAVIT, first occupant of the place, wine owner and notable of the town. The successive generations of this family will hold their place within the viticulture and the local assemblies.
After a flourishing history, the region sank into a wine crisis against a backdrop of phylloxera. From these dark years of crisis and war, the vineyard gradually recovered.
Today, thanks to the passion of a few winegrowers, the rebirth of the Faugères vineyard is widely confirmed. It is in this context that Denis Feigel and Eric de Turckheim decided to revive this castle and restore it to its nobility.
Their common desire is to fully participate in the renewal of this millennial vineyard and to share this dream come true with their friends and passing guests.
Eric de Turckheim decided to translate the elegance and purity of the wines by a contemporary realization by calling on the architectural firm Larroche et Joyeux , and to give back its wine vocation to the castle of the village , while strengthening its association with Martine and Denis Feigel.
This daring and resolutely contemporary approach underlines the harmonious and refined lines, signature of a demanding art of living.
The architectural inspiration marked by the taste for perfection gives every detail its importance to create a serene atmosphere to the delight of the guests of this residence. Lounges and glass roofs, bathed in light and furnished in a designer spirit, open onto magnificent terraces overlooking the green gardens, a true haven of peace.
In this beautifully landscaped environment , Martine and Denis Feigel invite you to explore their adopted region.
First of all the vineyard which covers a large part of the territories but also the hinterland and its remarkable sites , the luxuriant Mediterranean flora and fauna.
Having become familiar with this environment, you will appropriate the place and the change of scenery will be total. A few getaways in the mountains or towards the sea, hiking or cycling will mark your stay. Along the small winding roads of the hinterland, car excursions will lift the veil on grandiose and picturesque sites.
