Secluded 17th century stone farmhouse on large grounds with own vines overlooking the river and close to the Canal du Midi - a haven of tranquillity
Tourism is the second industry of the region and is becoming increasingly popular for its ancient history and marvellous climate and its interesting vineyards. Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Cathars have all left their mark as did Louis XIV with the Canal du Midi, here. Such a region is good for the soul: fresh food, wine and sunshine, plus a daily market selling fresh produce!
