La Pinède de Lézignan - Lézignan-Corbières


50,000 trees were planted in the pine forest and City with the help of the National Forestry Office, the Rescue Centre and the participation of the people and children in an awareness and education approach to preservation the quality of our environment. Lézignan-Corbières is a very active town, located along the main road between Narbonne and Carcassonne. The town has plenty of shops and cafés and so makes a good place to stop for a lunchtime visit. The main attraction, though, is the Wednesday market which is very large and packs the town with market stalls, people, odors (of the good sort) and activity. The main church of Lézignan-Corbières, Eglise Saint-Félix, is an imposing structure. Declared an historical monument, it's located in the center of town and has a small park just beside. The Wednesday market is a really big affair in Lézignan-Corbières. The market stretches around the south side of the old town, packing the main Cours de la République and most of the adjacent side-streets. There are very many clothes and food stalls, and all are popular. It was fun to observe which vendors had the best reputation by the bigger crowds packed around the more popular vegetable and food stands.
 

Start

Take the small passage between the tennis courts, turn left and walk up the rue Gaston Bonheur which will take you straight up to the beginning of the Saint Jaumes pine wood, just after the Patacou housing development.

Continue walking in the shade of the pine trees till you reach the start of a ‘Parcours Vita’ (fitness trail) and an orienteering course. Leave the tarred road and take the broad track to your left. You’ll continue on this track till you reach the Plô de Moureau (start of a botanical path).

Turn right on the tarred road. Continue straight ahead on the track that comes after this tarred section. Leave the track  and walk down the Saint Jaume coomb on a small path, on the hillside and into the brook.

Walk uphill on the Saint Jaume plateau, then downhill again into a ravine (landscaped passage). The path overlooks the Saint Jaume gorges (often dry in summer) which you’ll follow till you come to a guardrail where you have a panoramic view.

Continue on this path first going down slightly, then in a flat bend till you reach a forest track. Take this to the right. Walk past the Sainte-Suzanne (or Sainte-Anne) wayside cross. Walk along amidst the vineyards, and get back to the pine wood by way of a small path to your right which will meet up with the ‘Parcours Vita’ again. Walk down the road till you reach the point of departure.

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...


Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....
