Activities/Attractions: Hidden in the South of France in a little area, known by the French as 'La France inconnue', is the Languedoc Roussillon area with all of its little secret spots. One of the world famous, but undiscovered areas, is the Minervois which takes its name from the intriguing fortress village of Minerve.

Situated in the heart of the Minervois wine region, Mailhac is an ancient village dating back more than 7000 years. The modern Mailhac surrounds the ramparts of a more ancient village which is amongst the most interesting in France.

The original village was built of wood and was situated in the adjacent hills, but after having been burnt to the ground numerous times, it was moved onto the plain and built of the more durable local stones.

It is located within easy reach of the places for all of the varied activities that you can enjoy in the magical valley of the Aude.

  • Travel North to explore the area of the Montagnes Noir, its caves, its lakes and its walks and bicycle routes
  • Head South to the busy beaches of the Mediterranean, Sail serenely along the canal du midi or motor further South to the Pyrenees and on to neighbouring Spain
  • To the East are the Roman cities of Bézier and Narbonne which straddle the Canal du Midi and the Canal de la Robinne. En route you can visit the prestigious olive oil mill of L'Oulibou which is situated on the outskirts of Bize Minervois
  • Go West to visit the most beautiful medieval city of Carcassonne, or further afield to Toulouse or the famous Perigord
