Minervois walking country
View of Aigues-Vives, and the Cesse valley
Away from the main road to Minerve, up in the hills that are between Aigues Vives and Bize Minervois, are some lovely walks and trails. Here you see the vines all tidy ready for the next years growth, traces of wild animals (sanglier - wild pig - a seclusive animal - is found in these parts), and overgrown vineyards, walls, paths, ruins that hold secrets of the past - Roman villas, and forts .....
