The village of Cruzy is ideally situated to enjoy the very best this region of France has to offer.
Surrounded by vineyards, the grapes harvested here are part of the AOC area known internationally by the Saint Chinian label. It is said that Languedoc is the largest vineyard in the world and from our village you can explore dozens of private and cooperative wineries. Some of our favourites include Mas de Cynanque, Domaine de la Provenquiere, Domaine Castigno and Moulin Gimié. All private domains are very happy to offer tastings but prefer if you can contact them in advance. (They are even happier if you buy some!)
We are a short drive or cycle ride from the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO heritage site dating back to the late 17th century, and a marvel of engineering - from Capestang, our nearest town, you can take a canal boat to explore the incredible Malpas Tunnel. The Voie Verte is a cycle path that runs from our local restaurant Le Terminus, to the canal port at Capestang. Bicycles can be hired and delivered to the Villa if required.
Within a 40 minute drive you can explore Mediterranean beaches, the Cité of Carcassonne, Narbonne, Béziers, and the Cathar stronghold of Minerve. A little further you can take a day trip to Barcelona, explore the beautiful city of Montpellier or visit the Pont du Gard.
If you prefer activities in addition to sightseeing there are many things to try within a short distance, many suitable for all ages. Several are listed below, and you'll find plenty of guidebooks and other helpful information on your arrival at Notre Maison!
