VILLESPASSANS, NEAR MINERVE, BIZE MINERVOIS, ST CHINIAN

Villespassans is a small village in the heart of the hilly Minervois wine-making region of southern France, between Carcassonne and Beziers and about 45 minutes from the Mediterranean beaches. It is part of a larger area known as Languedoc, historically a romantic land of castles and troubadors. Villespassans dates back to the Roman era and is a typical hill village of the region. It has a population of about 100 regular residents which increases on weekends and during holiday times.

Our house - is located on the site of the ancient village walls of Villespassans overlooking the vineyards.

In the evening, the lights of Narbonne can be seen in the distance. The countryside is the typical rolling hills of the Minervois, less arid and austere than the craggier hills of the Corbieres to the south. The aromatic fragrances of wild lavender, thyme and rosemary permeate the air and clear streams wind through gorges and canyons.

ABOUT VILLESPASSANS AND THE AREA

Villespassans - is a small village in the heart of the hilly Minervois wine-making region of southern France, between Carcassonne and Beziers and about 45 minutes from the Mediterranean beaches.

A traveling baker visits the village every morning delivering fresh bread, tarts and croissants. Two days per week, the fish man and the butcher also visit the village. Full shopping facilities and many fine restaurants (are there any other kind in France?) are located in St. Chinian, Assignan or Cruzy, all about a five minute drive away (or a fifteen minute bicycle ride). Full banking facilities, bus and other services are found in St. Chinian.

It is part of a larger area known as Languedoc, historically a romantic land of castles and troubadors. Villespassans dates back to the Roman era and is a typical hill village of the region. It has a population of about 100 regular residents, which increases at weekends and during holiday times.

Languedoc - is sometimes referred to as the “other” south of France, being less well known (and less expensive) than the Provence and Cote d’Azur areas. In many of the local auberges (country restaurants), you can get a fine meal, including wine, for about 15 euros.
