Domaines & Demeures

Domaines & Demeures was set up by Karl O‘Hanlon to pursue his vision of authentic and sustainable real estate and tourism in the Languedoc region.

Karl moved from Ireland to the Languedoc with his family in 2006. He started his career with the Boston Consulting Group. He then joined the Bank of Ireland . He moved to France and joined a leading hotel/development company.


Then Karl decided to head off on his own and refurbish a 19th century winegrower’s home and estate. An ambitious project by any stretch of the imagination. But such is his passion for the Languedoc and the concept of affordable luxury lifestyle he just knew what his life’s work would be – simply follow your passion.

Chateau Les Carresses is a luxurious idyll set in spectacular countryside. It has 28 stunning suites, apartments and houses all beautifully fitted and furnished some with their own private pools and gardens.

The Chateau has a main swimming pool, floodlit tennis court, fabulous restaurant run by celebrated chef Anne De Ravel.

Two years on and the dream just gets better. Karl was approached by Olivier Bonfils a very large wine producer in the Languedoc who wanted to use Karl’s vision to develop a number of his Domaines. And thus the partnership of the Bonfils/O’Hanlon’s has begun and the adventure begins.

Karl is now launching St. Pierre which will be launched in April. It consists of 40 units ranging in price from €230,000 - €800,000. Already 21 are sold. It will be another two years before Karl releases another Domaine to market again. Carpi Diem or wait for two years to become a member of this “to be” exclusive association.
