It offers a warm and welcoming living and a life rich and vibrant village. Now provided with a water stop, it is an ideal stop in the Minervois, that there is an afternoon, a weekend or a lifetime.

Originally the property of vassals of the Counts of Carcassonne, La Redorte is mentioned for the first time in 1080. The crusade of 1209 passed the village among the possessions of the house of Nigri, one of the few to have Occitan lords sided with Simon de Montfort. Between 1667 and 1681, La Redorte experiencing a period of great activity around the digging of the canal du Midi, then the construction in 1694 of the outfall of the Argent Double. Late 18th century, the family sold its Nigri domain family Peyrat. At that time, the castle leaned to the south, the city walls, and spread on a large plot. After the Revolution, the Peyrat no longer run the city but continue to own the castle and the "property". They sell these possessions in 1849 to General Count Mathieu La Redorte. It was he who restored the castle, enlarged the park, various hollow tunnels to connect the scattered parts and give all the appearance it has today.
