A Unique Luxury Lodge

A stylish French feel

Keeping our grapevines, beautiful gardens and intimate courtyard in pristine condition is important to us.

Our lovely rural property has fantastic facilities including a gloriously high ceiling dining hall that can seat up to 110 people… with an unbeatable outdoor courtyard in front, lawns and a rose garden to the side, and a vineyard! There is a full commercial kitchen where the caterers serve up their fabulous cuisine, great places to take photos and a friendly but stylish atmosphere.

In Spring, the lavender is in full bloom, a bright purple accent beside the silver leaves of the olive trees and the soft country terracotta of the barn and function hall. In Summer, the sun casts stunning shadows across the stones of the limestone pebbled courtyard. And of course Autumn has its grand displays of opulent colour, crisp mornings and timeless days. In every season, Cossars has a different personality – always the same, but always changing. That’s the magic.
