In the heart of the Saint Chinian vineyards and overlooking the Forets Domaniale de Saint Chinian and Saint Jean you will find this hamlet dedicated to making fine wines and sweet muscats. There is a popular restaurant established in the old village schoolroom, much to the culinary delight of the locals and those living in the nearby villages of Saint Chinian and Bize. These two villages also provide the nearest shops and other amenities. The popular Sunday market in Saint Chinian draws crowds from far and wide, feasting eyes and appetites on the fresh produce, with a wide selection of locally grown organic fruits and vegetables, alongside numerous other stalls with local artisans and gardeners, clothes, shoes, a wide range of mouth-watering ready-to-eat rotisserie foods, Chinese specialities, Moroccan dishes and Spanish paellas, alongside fishmongers, artisanal cheeses and much, much more. There is easy access to airports (Carcassonne, Béziers, Montpellier, Perpignan) and the Mediterranean coast while the Spanish border and the Pyrenees Mountains also beckon just an easy hour and a half drive away. The countryside is stunning and constantly changing throughout the seasons, a perfect place for hiking, biking - or simply getting away from it all, lying back in the sunshine and inhaling the pure country air perfumed with wild lavender, rosemary and thyme.
