  • The Isobel Award Winner 2023

    20th June 2023

    We were delighted to present Art in Healthcare, The Isobel Award on 30th May 2023 at Carlowrie Castle.

    Each year we commemorate Isobel through The Isobel Award, now in its fifth year. The aim is to celebrate and support unsung hero’s that work within the community to bring change. Whether an individual or organisation, The Isobel Award represents Isobel’s values, her grit and determination and her deep held faith in community, nature, and human kindness to overcome adversity.

    Art in Healthcare is a charity working across Scotland to improve health and wellbeing for individuals and communities by providing opportunities to experience and engage with high quality visual art, artists and creativity.

    Isobel experienced loss and grief throughout her early life, which affected her mental wellbeing, and it was art, creative writing and nature that helped her recover. We look forward to supporting Art in Healthcare’s ongoing work with hospitals, care homes and community mental wellbeing and drawing on the power of art and creativity to transform lives and nurture human connections. We believe Isobel would approve!

  • Our very own Vineyard in the heart of the Loire Valley

    11th August 2022

    With building works well underway and ready to welcome our first guests in October 2023, we are excited to present Domaine de la Citardière Vineyard and Cottages.

     

    Located in the heart of the Loire Valley, just south of Saumur, the Domaine de la Citardière vineyard and two guest cottages are a must for all wine-lovers. Tucked away down a cypress tree-lined drive, the vineyard has picture-perfect views, flavour-packed wines and a rich history dating back to the 15th century.

     

    Designed exclusively to host one group at a time (sleeping up to 12 guests), our cottages offer guaranteed privacy. During your stay, you will have sole use of the cottages, pool and sun terraces, so you can truly relax and unwind. If you’ve ever dreamed of slowing down and escaping to your own private vineyard, we have the perfect place for you.

     

    Citardière offers the best of both worlds when it comes to dining. The cottages are self-catering, however we can also provide your very own in-house chef to cater for you and your guests, paired with the perfect wine, of course!

  • Celebrate with our Citardière Crémant

    25th March 2022

    Speaking of tasty treats, here at Carlowrie from May 2022 we’ll be serving sparkling Crémant wine from our vineyard in the Loire Valley, France. The Domaine de la Citardière vineyard became part of the Carlowrie Group in 2020 and is managed by Madame and Monsieur Martin, who have a huge interest in biodiversity and habitat conservation. During the winter, we’ve been pruning back the vines while they are in their dormant phase. This process, known as renewing the vines, ensures that they maintain their strength and vitality, so they can grow flavour-packed grapes. The vineyard produces red, white and rosé wines and two sparkling Crémant wines.

    The Citardière Crémant we’re currently serving has delicious summery notes, and is the perfect sparkling drink to toast a special event.

    The guest houses at Domaine de la Citardière vineyardour sleeps 14-person plus staff and will be finished by end of 2023. So, if you’re dreaming of a relaxing escape with sweeping vineyard views, please keep an eye on our website and Instagram for updates.
