The road from Aigne to Olonzac, near Beaufort, Languedoc

Minervois road near Beaufort, Olonzac, Aigne

The road from Aigne to Olonzac, in April is full of strident greens, fresh leaves, bright skies, electric energy in the air.

Vineyards and overgrown tracks beckon one to get off the road, and discover the richness of the landscape.

Close are visigothic churches, 12th century fortresses, long forgotten ruins of Roman villas.

Close to are fine restaurants, and fine wines
