Ecluse de Pechlaurier, Canal du Midi, near Argens - Minervois
Today's photo feature - July
Take the circular walk above the Ecluse de Pechlaurier
Circular walk. Go take a backpack of wine, water, bread and cheese, and walk from Argens Minervois to Ecluse de Pechlaurier, then follow the yellow markings and the path as it climbs the Pech Laurier (Pech = Hill), and follow it surrounded by trees, with magnificent views across the hidden lake to Argens with its chateau, to the distant Corbieres, and Mediterranean. Follow the path back past the mystery lake (its not on the map) to the village, and if you want to laze a bit more take some good nourishment at the restaurant by the canal in the village.
