Spring has sprung in the beautiful hills of Faugères
Above the vineyards of Faugères lies an amazing array of trails lined with ancient dry stone walls. The stones have been collected over hundreds of years to firstly clear the land and secondly to build boundary walls and stone huts. These stone huts,capitelles, have been meticulously restored by an extremely passionate local, Madame Claude Froidevaux. Used by shepherds and agricultural workers, these incredible huts stay are water tight and stay cool in the unforgiving summer sun.For a great day out follow these instructions, Faugères Walking. This walk also takes in the restored windmills that perch above the village. The views from here are spectacular. When conditions are right you can see the Med and the Pyrennes from the Table d’Orientation. Around here there is some wonderful walking country and Faugeres wine is the best in the Languedoc!
