"C'est un jardin extraordinaire" chantait l'enfant du pays Charles Trenet
Dominant l'étang de Bages piqué de flamants roses, les jardins du Château Capitoul sont signés de la main d'un des plus grands paysagistes contemporains - James Basson, quatre fois vainqueur de l'Exposition Florale de Chelsea et des "Victoires du Paysage" en 2018.
L’artiste s’est appuyé sur le savoir-faire du très respecté botaniste reconnu Olivier Filippi pour développer une palette de plantes méditerranéennes parfaitement adaptées au paysage sec et rocheux de la Clape, afin qu’elles s’épanouissent sans engrais ni herbicides, et surtout sans puiser dans la plus précieuse des ressources naturelles - l'eau.

Les jardins reflètent le style naturaliste de James, qui a combiné avec maestria les nouvelles plantations et les jardins existants pour qu'au fil du temps, les espaces récemment créés s'intègrent parfaitement dans la nature.*

Les jardins de Capitoul accueillent plus d'une centaine d'espèces méditerranéennes. Autour des chênes verts et des pins d'Alep sous-plantés d'érables champêtres et d’arbres de Judée, se déploient de sculpturaux massifs chamarrés d'euphorbe, de lavande, de romarin et de plantes grasses. Tout, dans ces exceptionnels jardins, conspire pour sublimer les spectaculaires métamorphoses du paysage du Massif de la Clape au fil des saisons.

* Notez que les jardins du hameau, plantés depuis peu, sont en pleine croissance et encore clairsemés par endroits. Vous aurez cependant l'opportunité de comprendre comment ces experts mondiaux ont conçu leur œuvre.
Situated in the former wine-making cellar, the conference area is composed of several meeting rooms. The large terrace adjoining the plenary room allows for  open-air working sessions with direct views over the vineyards and bays.

The 240 hectares of the Domaine provide a sublime playground to entertain and reunite your teams. Some activities naturally revolve around wine (wine tasting, blending, landscape reading, grape harvesting, etc.), others are an opportunity to discover our beautiful region through a rally, a treasure hunt, a sporting challenge, etc...
Do not hesitate to tell us what you would like to do, we will propose you a "made to measure" programme.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of activities that we can organise on site or nearby:
Evening entertainment
 « Années Folles » evening
Adapted to the atmosphere of Capitoul, this evening will allow everyone to step into the shoes of characters of the period. The Charleston and Prohibition years, the carefree period between the two wars - a joy to play  dandies or gangsters …
Cabaret Evening
Before dinner, rehearsal of theatrical, humorous or musical sketches in small groups led by professional actors.
During dinner, guests will be both actors and spectators. On the same format as a professional cabaret, the acts will follow on from each other with  off-beat moments of laughter and celebration and even a little emotion..
Digital quiz
Share a fun moment with your colleagues! In teams or groups of teams, challenge each other with a variety of tests (multiple choice questions, blind tests and interactive challenges based on mimes, observation games, photo challenges, etc.) with an entertainer who will get your adrenaline pumping. Laughter and enthusiasm guaranteed! 
Fake waiters and close up magic
Nothing is written on the basis of improvisation, everything is played out with the collaboration of the audience. The actors mingle with the waiters. Very discreet during the aperitif, the characters "shift" as the meal progresses in a crescendo. You will meet touching and endearing characters who are obviously quite at home.
At the same time, a magician will pass from table to table, for a close-up performance in collusion with the fake waiters.
CSR activities

A fun, introductory workshop on the preservation of biodiversity! Explanation of the benefits of installing bird boxes within the natural area, and presentation of the different birds already present in the environment surrounding the Domaine.
