Beatrice and Sebastien Fillon decided to turn their lives upside down, in 2006, by buying the 15 hectares domaine, the Clos du Serres. It was a total change of direction for Beatrice and for Sebastien.
Born in St Etienne, Sebastien grew up in a rural, agricultural environment, so he knew about working the land. It was Beatrice, who hailed from Montpellier, chose the area : ‘We wanted to change our lives, to move South to the only region where there is still land to clear’.
They were won over by the quality of life, surrounded by wild, unspoilt nature, set among olive groves, vines and the wild garrigue, close to some great natural sites (Lake Salagou, St Guilhem le Desert, the Herault gorges) but not far (40 kms) from Montpellier.
