Details of the village
Argens-Minervois offers visitors the opportunity to unwind and turn back time. It’s quietly tucked away on the sleepy banks of the Canal du Midi in the department of the Aude, with flourishing vineyards as far as the eye can see. A series of country roads and trails through the vines, around our lake, or along the banks of the canal provide guests with scenic walking, hiking or running routes. And all of this within just 5 minutes' walk! Argens is unique in that it is one of the few canal villages which has a port where visitors can rent a cruiser. It’s a relaxing way to spend an afternoon, or simply gaze at the boats as they sail by whilst enjoying a nice refreshing glass of wine or cup of coffee at one of the three canal side restaurants. The village epicerie (grocery store) is also within 5 minutes' walk, as are the three operational wine caves in the village. Enjoy sampling the village wines at wine tasting sessions at the caves, or visit Café Le Troubadour, which is owned and operated by our neighbour Gilbert. He and his patrons are always willing to share their knowledge of the local wines - and the locality in general.
Argens is located between the Mediterranean and the Black Mountains in the Minervois wine-growing valley. It is approximately 20 kilometers from the historic city of Narbonne and 40 kilometers from the city of Carcassonne with its amazing medieval walled village and chateau. Argens is also conveniently located just 20-minutes' drive from two major autoroutes, (A9 and A61), providing direct access to Toulouse and Montpellier (1.25 hours), Perpignan and Collioure (1.5 hours), and Barcelona (3 hours).
