Being adjacent to the Canal du Midi there is easy access to miles of walking/cycling paths and quiet roads to explore. We are surrounded by vineyards so there are many local wines to sample from the local Minervois region and neighbouring Corbieres region. About a mile away is the pretty canalside village of Homps which has a small supermarket plus several restaurants and a few shops. For larger supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, local markets, etc the small towns of Azille, Olonzac and La Redorte are only a few miles away. Mediterranean beaches are less than an hour’s drive away as are the historic cities of Carcassonne, Narbonnes and Beziers. The Black Mountains are about an hour’s drive to the north with the Pyrenees about two hours to the south and there are also many ruined Cathar castles to explore in the area.
