From the Canal du Midi to the banks of the River Orb, 17 charming towns and villages nestle at the heart of the vineyards.

They welcome you to Saint-Chinian, Minervois and Languedoc appellation vineyards that lie just a few kilometres from sandy Mediterranean beaches, between Béziers and Narbonne, and Montpellier and Carcassonne.

Each of these quintessentially French villages have a unique charm and personality - and they are just waiting to be sketched!
