On a plateau less than 20km from Saint-Chinian, the banks of the Orb and the Canal du Midi, succumb to the charms of the village of a thousand and one stone. Welcome to Villespassans, a typical wine-growing village in Languedoc.
If its landscapes of vines and scrubland are strikingly beautiful, Villespassans is home to geological and paleontological remains attested by the discovery of caves and dolmens. The richness of the heritage is multiple, a pledge of its beauty and of a history that you will enjoy discovering by surveying its alleys and its shaded plots. Discover the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, which nestles in the hollow of the houses with its beautiful facades and its restored bell tower. In turn, old houses with tiled roofs, a Romanesque facade, ramparts invite you to learn about the role played by the old lords.
To the northeast, low walls (pronounce the “t” to speak like a native!) And capitelles bear witness to the agricultural and pastoral activity of the village, which is surrounded by a vineyard belonging to the AOC Saint Chinian. Throughout the stroll and the imagination on the path of a thousand and one stones, the life of the shepherds and peasants who shaped this country is revealed. With its explanatory panels, the pedestrian route tells the story of agricultural and pastoral life in the area of Villespassans. To discover these landscapes, the more athletic can venture on a 34km mountain bike circuit starting from the House of Wines de Saint-Chinian before joining Assignan (n ° 10 “Saint Chinian - Villespassans - Assignan, 780D +).
Finally, do not leave Villespassans without tasting the pleasure of tasting wine or local products with our producers.
