Visit The magic of the Haut Minervois, and discover Ferrals Les Montagnes, Autheze, and Domaine de la Foret

If you are wanting a day out from going to the beach - take a trip into the Haut Minervois - and discover quiet villages, cradles amongst green hills, where there is the sound of streams and water sparkles. Suggested itinerary - take the main road from Narbonne to St Pons (D607 - D907), turn left just after Rieussec (D147E), and go in the direction of Brian, following the road to Favayrolles, Autheze (visit church), Ferrals Les Montagnes Sunday market in Summer Months). Then take the D12 to St Julien de Molieres (Ranch with horses). Take the turn to D182 (look to your left for a sign to Domaine de la Foret - goats and cheese!) in the direction of Minerve (it becomes the D10E). After Minerve take the road to La Caunette - where you will meet the Narbonne - St Pons road again.
